Sharpton on Confederate Statues: Like Asking A WWII Veteran To Pay For A Statue of Hitler | Video

1 min read



MSNBC’s Al Sharpton compared how black Americans feel about Confederate statues to asking a World War Two veteran to pay for a statue of Hitler, Thursday on “Morning Joe.”

“These statues are in public places that are maintained by people employed by taxpayer dollars. So [Trump] is, in effect, asking Black Americans, Brown Americans, and all Americans, to pay to help extol people that literally fought to keep their forefathers enslaved,” he said. “Make sure the statue for him is polished, maintained, and secured. That’s an insult to all of us.”

“We should have the statues of those that fought and defeated them, not the ones who were defeated,” Sharpton said. “How would a World War II veteran feel about paying taxes to have a statue of Mussolini or Hitler in their public square?”

“That’s how many of us in Black America feel.”
