Managing Editor’s Note: Tear down those statues — Louisville’s and Charlottesville’s monumental problems

These statues are rallying points for racists and, worse, stinging rebukes for African-Americans. They all need to be removed — ground into dust, or placed in museums or cemeteries where they can be seen by only those who want to see them and understood for their historical context. They cannot be allowed to remain merely as decorations and landscaping. We applaud Mayor Greg Fischer for acting swiftly, calling Sunday for a review of all Louisville public art that ‘can be interpreted as honoring bigotry, racism and/or slavery.’ We hope this proclamation is more than politicking.”
