Whether in Chicago 2017 or Everywhere 2020, don’t focus on the statues.

The War on Statues is not new.
In 2017, RebelPundit filmmakers Jeremy Segal and Andrew Marcus followed Chicago community organizer, Paul McKinley, on a tour of the south side neighborhood, Washington Park, where they find local residents opposed to a pastor’s calls to remove George Washington’s name and statue from the park.
It’s an interesting glimpse at how statue removal is often a distraction from other issues. For example, then and there, the deflection was to hide the neglect of the Chicago neighborhood. Now, it’s more of a tearing down not of statues, but of history and our civil society, mixed with a psychological collapse.
In either case, don’t focus on the statues, there’s something else going on.
While we’re at it, this 2016 Rebel Pundit interview of a woman complaining about white male privilege is one of my favorites of the genre, You are surrounded by your white male privilege. Put a mask on her, let her out at night, and her type could be any of today’s protesters tearing down statues.
