Mr. Yuler: Dont care for Newt but he is right 100%. I'm black and do not have an issue with the statues. Its still history no matter how you slice it. I still got my education and prospered in life despite my ancestors dying under the rebel flag. Keep all that mess up.I dont want history erased. I love when my two boys would ask what is that and I happily tell them the history of what the rebel flag and its supporters represent. I got my bachelors in history and my masters in education so I have full respect for it even if i dont agree with it.
