    Should we really be tearing down statues?

    We argue and fight about statues while American children go hungry. The statues are history, leave them alone and work on major issues that will make a difference.

    If we take down all the statues, then the pigeons will have nothing to poop on. Has anyone thought about the poor pigeons? Of course not. Humans are so selfish. Only when we are up to our necks in an ocean of pigeon poop will we realize our mistake.

    Most of the statues people are all up in arms about were put up during the Jim Crow and Civil Rights eras, as a big F. U. to the North.

    They also aren't great works of art. They were mostly churned out by one foundry. They have no more artistic value than garden gnomes.

    Most people don't realize that public statues require maintenance. They have to be cleaned, have graffiti removed, have the pigeon poop removed, and every so often, they have to be restored. So, anyone objecting to the cost of removing them might want to factor in the long-term cost of having them in the first place.

    My feeling: get rid of them. There's no need to keep these monuments, because there was no need to erect them in the first place.

    Some of my ancestors fought for Texas in the Confederate army. Rather than tearing down statues, i'd prefer to see much bigger and more beautiful statues built in their honor smile <3
