  1. If we are destroyed statues and monuments of slave holders, why haven’t we bulldozed these places of oppression where slaves were beaten, raped and even murdered?

    • These places are the Temple of the God of the Gaps. Without this proof of oppression how would we ever explain differences in outcomes between whites and blacks? Without these places, might we realize we aren’t all identical and replaceable?
