Removal of any symbol whose interpretation is so widely diverse is not the solution to the inherent Institutionalized Racism in America today. It does not even scratch the surface. I caution against interpreting the symbol, in this case the Confederate flag or statues of Civil War generals for the real problem, Racism in America. Amazon and Walmart can remove Confederate flags from their stores, we can stop their display in front of government buildings, we can dismantle monuments, but what does that do as far as changing the racist mindset of American society and institutions? Nothing! Absolutely nothing!
