I agree he needs more recognition maybe South Market? That doesn't have a real name.

Seeing we are in a time of reexamining history, exactly what occurred with Crispus Attucks and the other colonists in the Boston Massacre.

Ever get a snowball in the eye? It stings and it stings and it stings. I will come back to that.
Most history accounts of the Boston Massacre say a group of colonists including Crispus Attucks, aggressively approached standing soldiers. The colonists, including Crispus Attucks, supposedly were throwing debris,sticks and snowballs at the soldiers. I dont think it is too smart in 2017 or 1770, throwing snowballs at a soldier or anyone with a gun. Your likely going to get an emotional, anger response.

Wonder if that is another way to look at history of the Boston Massacre. Crispus Attucks and the other colonists were a mob of antagonizing thugs looking for trouble and getting trouble back. Soldiers are just doing their jobs. They are not trained to think but react. If the British soldiers indeed get snowballs in their eyes and fired, i dont blame them.

Crispus Attucks heroics during the colonial days may be FAKEHISTORY.
Was CNN around in 1770 and covering the Boston Massacre?

African-American activist Louis Farrakhan and his followers of the Million Man March claims Jewish financing were involved in American Slavery. Google it. Today Robert E Lee statutes and the Faneuil Hall name come down, what statutes and memorials will come down next decade?

After all the statues in the country were taken down one by one and no one complained, they finally came to tear down our statutes and memorials, and there was no one left to complain.
