Racist monuments, statues and streets are being defaced, torn down and renamed after the widespread solidarity shown in the last few weeks of demonstration all over the world frowning on police brutality and racism while protesters demand justice and in some cases, demanding and threatening to abolish the police departments in there area altogether.
The defacing and tearing down of monuments and statues is not a new happening by any means. Confederate and other debated statues and monuments have been taken down before on many occasions. The vandalism and protests toward racist monuments is as old as the monuments themselves. In the struggle for freedom, monuments and statues as well as historical tributes remain a front line in the fight for a free world. Times are changing and this is is a sign of the times.
