Let's start by removing the people who literally thought it was worth the deaths of nearly 1 million americans so they can continue to enslave a race of people as subhuman.

After that, just don't start putting up statues to serial killers.

Virginia does too. It's just that the Liberal News Outlets out there don't like to talk about that.

It is Virginia Code 15.2-1812. Memorials for war veterans:

A locality may, within the geographical limits of the locality, authorize and permit the erection of monuments or memorials for any war or conflict, or for any engagement of such war or conflict, to include the following monuments or memorials: Algonquin (1622), French and Indian (1754-1763), Revolutionary (1775-1783), War of 1812 (1812-1815), Mexican (1846-1848), Confederate or Union monuments or memorials of the War Between the States (1861-1865), Spanish-American (1898), World War I (1917-1918), World War II (1941-1945), Korean (1950-1953), Vietnam (1965-1973), Operation Desert Shield-Desert Storm (1990-1991), Global War on Terrorism (2000- ), Operation Enduring Freedom (2001- ), and Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003- ). If such are erected, it shall be unlawful for the authorities of the locality, or any other person or persons, to disturb or interfere with any monuments or memorials so erected, or to prevent its citizens from taking proper measures and exercising proper means for the protection, preservation and care of same. For purposes of this section, "disturb or interfere with" includes removal of, damaging or defacing monuments or memorials, or, in the case of the War Between the States, the placement of Union markings or monuments on previously designated Confederate memorials or the placement of Confederate markings or monuments on previously designated Union memorials.

The code prevents removal but not relocation of existing memorials therefore a community can decide to move it wherever it likes within its jurisdiction. Placing a random memorial decades after a conflict for a person(s) or event that did not occur in a community does not add validity to its purpose.

Africa obviously has some good things that the average US citizen doesn't seen because of the reason you pointed out. But you can't honestly say there are not a HUGE amount of issues going on in that country.

Everything from war lords, child slavery, femine, aids epidemic and many other diseases.

Africa is an continent. Thats like saying North America has problems because of the on-going cartel corruption of El Salvador... therefore living in Charleston South Carolina = living in El Salvador.

Are you reading that in the Code? or is that just your assumption?

Also, do you have an example of one that has already been "relocated" in Virginia?
