2 City-Owned Confederate Monuments To Be Moved, 2 Others To Be Kept

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Wednesday announced what the future holds for four city-owned Confederate monuments on public land.

The announcement comes following a report submitted by the mayor's special commission on the issue. The four Confederate monuments that were evaluated were the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Mount Royal Avenue near Mosher Street; the Confederate Women's Monument at Bishop Square Park; the Roger B. Taney Monument at Mt. Vernon Place; and the Lee & Jackson Monument at Wyman Park Dell.

“I would like to personally thank the Commission members and City staff who took on this important task. I also want to thank the citizens of Baltimore and other interested parties who attended hearings and submitted testimony regarding these monuments,” Rawlings-Blake said in a statement. “This took great courage and skill. I hope that their efforts can become a model for other jurisdictions throughout the country on how to create an impartial, fair, and democratic process to address complex issues of history and race.”

looks like the blacks wont have any history time they get done. Like they teach in schools America just appeared one day and the people that fought for it to "appear" were terrorists

For a city that is broke and dealing with record crime I think there are better uses of resources.

Fast forward about 30 years:
History books in Baltimore will be celebrating the writing of The Star Spangles Banner by Kanye West.

I don't think they are very interested in being fair or impartial.
Unless, by fair and impartial, they mean "if you agree with us, then you are fair and impartial".
The rest of your are racists.

Baltimore is one of the most racist cities in the US. They are subtle about it just like they are by being an illegal refuge by being a sanctuary City. Thank You Hogan for allowing MD to become a sanctuary state.

What a shame it is to suppress American and World history to satisfy a small group of black crybabies who refuse to accept that it was their own black communities who sold them into slavery in Africa. They celebrate "Black History Month" and then throw out the very history that is why they celebrate to begin with. For the love of God, is there no common sense left anymore?

No one gave any of those monuments a second look until the MSM made a overly hyped up big deal about the history of the southern states, confederate flags and monuments to those who fought and lost a great battle dealing with the break up of the United States of America!

save your mojo Steph. You're gonna need it for re election. Leave the statues alone. There are better things upon which to spend taxpayer dollars.

The next thing will be to forbid all white people who had decedent's that were slave-holders to leave Baltimore. The final thing will be to outlaw all black and white cars so as not to offend anyone. Just paint all cars green.
