Ok my opinion as a history major is NO it is not erasing history tearing statues down. We have primary source documents, text books, wikipedia, all that stuff still to read up about it.

I do object to vandalism however if a majority of people in that city with the statue decide they want it destroyed then i say so be it.

“Virginia on Wednesday took down a towering statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, the last Confederate statue remaining along Richmond's historic Monument Avenue.

A pair of rulings from the state Supreme Court last week cleared the way for its removal after intense national debate over the 12-ton statue's purpose”
