Another one bites the dust: Rocky Mount votes to remove Confederate statue

Maybe they can airlift it and drop it on that "mechanized cavalry" dude's barn:

Rocky Mount Mayor Sandy Roberson tells WRAL News the city council has voted to remove a Confederate monument that has stood for years at Battle Park. The decision was made during a meeting for the city's 2020-2021 budget Tuesday between members of the council. The council voted 6-1 to remove the monument.

Roberson said the vote will be confirmed in an open meeting of the city council this Monday. He also said the plan is to remove the monument and store it somewhere. He was not sure if the vote has standing but said the Monday vote would be official.

Phallic symbol bemoaning the emasculation of a failed reb...Sorry, just thinking outloud for a minute there.
