This 18 August 2017 comedy video from the USA says about itself:
Confederate Monuments Are Bad; General Forrest’s Is Really Bad
James looks at the controversy surrounding the fate of Confederate soldier monuments across the country and can’t let go of a rather scary statue of General Nathan Bedford Forrest in Tennessee.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
Founder of the KKK loses street name in Florida
The founder of the Ku Klux Klan will disappear from the street scene of Hollywood, Florida. Also two other generals who fought for the Confederate States will lose their street names, the city council has decided.
Before that war he was a slave trader.
He was a particularly ruthless general, who killed black Union army soldiers from the north after they had surrendered.
“It’s like living in the Hitler Street”, said a local politician. …
It is not clear yet what the new names of the streets will be, next week there will be a decision. …
During the local authority meeting, a Hollywood resident suggested that Lee Street did not need to change its name: the name might now refer to writer Harper Lee, author of the [anti-racist] book To kill a mockingbird.
By the way, Forrest will continue in other places: there is no discussion about Bedford Forrest Drive in the Texan Missouri City.
There is some discussion about it.
An Iowa high school says it disciplined a group of students after a photo surfaced showing five people wearing Ku Klux Klan hoods, waving a Confederate flag and holding what appear to be guns in front of a burning cross: here.
A senior official at the VA removed a portrait of a Confederate general and famed Ku Klux Klan grand wizard after a reporter questioned him about the painting.
