Monuments as Propaganda
Protesters around the Robert E Lee statue on Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia. Richmond’s mayor has said the statue will be removed this month. Monuments to confederate generals are a form of propaganda created at a time in American history when black people were actively oppressed. Valorizing the "lost cause" theory of the confederacy served to empower white people and terrorize African Americans throughout the American South.
This is propaganda because
Monuments are propaganda -- and so is the protest against them!
