I think Darwin should. I think Churchill should be commemorated and he had some awful views on race. But I also think his views should be held up and scrutinized honestly, and maybe our view of him should be caveated and not quite so lionized.
But really, I know there's lots of individuals who can fall on this list. I'm not for destroying all statues. But certain individuals - like Colston or Rhodes - yeah, chuck them into the ocean for all I care.
I don't know if he lied? What evidence do you have?
This is what you said -
I mentioned Boudicia, founding fathers of America, Communism in Poland and the Czech Republic.
Where has BLM toppled any statues of Boudicia, the founding fathers of America or Stalin Statues in Poland and Czech Republic? Care to share any links here?
US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order introducing several police reforms while rejecting calls to defund or dismantle the police.
His order offers federal grants to improve police practices, including creating a database to trace abuses by officers.
The order comes amid anger over the killing of African Americans by police officers.

The former Atlanta police officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks last week was previously reprimanded for use of force involving a firearm, according to records released to Reuters by the city’s police department on Tuesday.
The records show Garrett Rolfe received a written reprimand in October 2017 for a firearm incident in September 2016, his sole use-of-force complaint in seven years on the force prior to Friday’s shooting. No further details were disclosed.
Rolfe was fired from the department after the shooting in the parking lot of a Wendy’s fast-food restaurant, which was captured by body and surveillance cameras. A second officer at the scene, Devin Brosnan, who is also white, was placed on administrative duty.
The death of 27-year-old Brooks, which came after he tussled with Rolfe and Brosnan and took off running with one of their Taser guns, was the latest killing of a black man to spark nationwide outrage at police brutality and racial injustice.
An autopsy conducted on Sunday showed that Brooks died from blood loss and organ injuries and ruled the death a homicide.
