Nancy Pelosi Seeks Removal Of Confederate Statues From US Capitol
Washington: US Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi known as Wednesday for the US Capitol’s elimination of 11 statues of Accomplice troopers or officers, the newest anti-racism effort after a black man’s dying in police custody sparked mass protests.
“Monuments to males who advocated cruelty and barbarism to realize such a plainly racist finish are a grotesque affront to those beliefs” of American democracy and freedom, the highest Democrat in Congress wrote to a bipartisan committee.
“Their statues pay homage to hate, not heritage,” Pelosi added. “They have to be eliminated.”
