I personally think it's not a material concern, but I think there should be some compromise to be worked out. I disagree with what they seem to want which is basically to expunge the history. However, there are some things that just shouldn't be done. You want to take a statue down for some civil war general, great, go for it. George Washington... nope. Or any figure of historical significance that wasn't tied only to the civil war, nope. Get over it. Honor the people that died as well, not every person was a culpable slave owner or believed in slavery or was even racist for the time.1
