Mayor Levar Stoney announced plans to remove all city-controlled Confederate statues from Monument Avenue, saying “Richmond is no longer the capital of the Confederacy—it is filled with diversity and love for all—and we need to demonstrate that.” What do you think?

“It’s nice to see such a quick response to an issue that’s been plaguing Richmond for 130 years.”
