To the Editor:
Bennie Walsh, NAACP president of Temple Branch said, “I honestly cannot say I feel any hurt while looking at a statue; I feel it in other aspects.”
Leave the statues alone — they are part of history; we cannot change that no matter how we feel, but I do suggest this: Bennie of the NAACP and others, please put all your energy and feelings into dealing with present issues, such as why is there such a terribly high number of unwed black women, abortions, single parents, black-on-black crime and black-on-white crime.
I have heard all the excuses and they no longer hold water.
I hope the (Bell County) commissioners stand tall, refuse to move history because it happens to offend three or four persons. Save the cost and do better with it.
