This Woman Hung A "Second Place" Banner On A Confederate Memorial

Just a lil levity today… a confederate memorial received a “participation” ribbon.


This woman is my hero. Simply amazing.


This twitter thread of people’s favorite statues from around the world is fucking fantastic :tumbler_glass:


I think this kind of bold, peaceful, and harmless yet attention-grabbing protest is most effective.

Confederate statues should be taken down. However, I worry some of the more “illegal” acts in unilaterally defacing or taking down statues will only give white nationalists more fuel for propaganda and recruiting.

Someone later spray painted that monument white, adding a white cross.
And others tarred and feathered this monument near Apache Junction, Arizona:
