Whose Heritage? Public Symbols of the Confederacy
Removing Confederate statues doesn't erase history. It erases their honor.

We still have museums and history departments and textbooks that cover, in varying degrees of detail, the events before, during, and after the Civil War. You could make an argument that we should have more education about what the Civil War meant, but monuments like the one in Charlottesville don't have education as their primary purpose.

The purpose of monuments is to honor and commemorate people and events. Monuments give us the very definition of the phrase "put on a pedestal". We should not be honoring the people who fought for the right to own human beings. We should absolutely remember that it happened, but we should not glorify the people who did it.

When we captured Baghdad during the Iraq War, we took down a statue of Saddam Hussein that had been standing in a central square of the city (among others). Germans today do not erect statues to Joseph Goebbels or Hans Krebs, but they certainly have not forgotten World War II.

So take down the statues. Put them in museums, next to documentation of everything the depicted people fought for. If the museums are already full of similar detritus from the losing side of the Civil War, destroy them to show that we no longer hold to the ideals they represent. Take them out of spaces that are open to everyone, because the people they depict are people who fought to close similar spaces to those who were deemed inferior.

Don't forget what the people in those statues did, but don't honor them for their deeds, either.

Collective Action, White Flight, and the Origins of Formal Segregation Laws
cities had created and sustained residential segregation through private norms and vigilante activity. Only when these private arrangements began to break down during the early 1900s did whites start lobbying municipal governments for segregation ordinances.

Overcoming Bias : Why Ethnicity, Class, & Ideology? 
Individual humans can be described via many individual features that are useful in predicting what they do. Such features include gender, age, personality, intelligence, ethnicity, income, education, profession, height, geographic location, and so on. Different features are more useful for predicting different kinds of behavior.

One kind of human behavior is coalition politics; we join together into coalitions within political and other larger institutions. People in the same coalition tend to have features in common, though which exact features varies by time and place. But while in principle the features that describe coalitions could vary arbitrarily by time and place, we in actual fact see more consistent patterns.


You might be right about small scale coalitions, such as cliques, gangs, and clubs. And you might even be right about larger scale political coalitions in the ancient world. But you’d be wrong about our larger scale political coalitions today. While there are often weak correlations with such features, larger scale political coalitions are not mainly based on the main individual features of gender, age, etc. Instead, they are more often based on ethnicity, class, and “political ideology” preferences. While ideology is famously difficult to characterize, and it does vary by time and place, it is also somewhat consistent across time and space.

Letter from a Region in My Mind | The New Yorker
"It is not too much to say that whoever wishes to become a truly moral human being (and let us not ask whether or not this is possible; I think we must believe that it is possible) must first divorce himself from all the prohibitions, crimes, and hypocrisies of the Christian church. If the concept of God has any validity or any use, it can only be to make us larger, freer, and more loving. If God cannot do this, then it is time we got rid of Him." - James Baldwin

Why I Left My White Therapist - Tonic
After three days of questioning what had happened, why, and how I might be responsible for her alarming behavior, I realized that I was playing out my trauma response in relation to my therapist. I knew that couldn't be good.

Paradox of tolerance
"The paradox of tolerance: Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. — In this formulation, I do not imply, for instance, that we should always suppress the utterance of intolerant philosophies; as long as we can counter them by rational argument and keep them in check by public opinion, suppression would certainly be unwise. But we should claim the right to suppress them if necessary even by force; for it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument, but begin by denouncing all argument."
