    Typical, because we are dealing with stupid and uneducated people, who are less interested in the cause than in the participation:

    16 Statues And Memorials Were Damaged During Sunday's Protests, Including One Dedicated To African American Soldiers


    The Robert Gould Shaw and the 54th Regiment Memorial was one of 16 public art works damaged when thousands of protesters swarmed Boston Common on Sunday night.

    A $3-million dollar restoration project for the sculpture dedicated to the African American soldiers who fought in the Civil War was granted clearance just last week. The outbreak of the coronavirus had delayed the project.

    The conservator's recent prep work protected the front of the bronze relief with plywood, but its granite backside was vandalized with four-letter words and phrases including “Black Lives Matter,” “No Justice, No Peace,” and “Police are Pigs.”

    “This monument is considered one of the nation's greatest pieces of public art and the greatest piece to come out of the Civil War,” said Liz Vizza, executive director of the Friends of the Public Garden, “It was, amazingly enough, dedicated 123 years ago on May 31st – the day it was defaced.”

    This thing is not about race, no matter how much the left says it is.

    Folks on here constantly put down the study of the Humanities. Maybe if the rioters had a bit more knowledge about Black participation in the C.W. they would have refrained from vandalizing the monuments.

    These aren’t “protests”, and it has nothing to do with racism. It’s about the destruction by people who never accomplished anything or achieved anything in their miserable, wretched lives.

    Was it BLM or Unicorn Riot, BAMN or Antifa?

    Because there (should be) no way BLM would destroy statues representing Blacks in a positive light.

    This is a destruction of History & Culture - a Communist thing. I suspect it was not BLM.

    Is this sarcasm? One of the most racist, irrational factions to draw headlines.

    Because you’ve not watched videos of White folks raising Hades and often times leading the mayhem?

    Oh, okay.

    The most irrational thing they do is accept BAMN, Antifa and Unicorn Riot and roll with these Communists during the night raising pure Hell.
