Goodness, now they are trying to destroy the St Louis statue in St Louis! It’s a beautiful statue, a real work of art. It means a lot and it symbolizes the French history of this area. He’s a grandchild of Alfonso VIII (the Spanish king who won the Navas de Tolosa Battle) and a son of Blanca de Castilla. This is a very important part of Latin heritage on the continent.
I have no idea how removing any trace of the Romance culture from this country serves the goals of diversity. It’s also really really upsetting that, among all the problems that black people in the St Louis area have, it’s a completely innocent statue that’s being singled out.
