Why does everyone want to erase history by removing statues of figures?

Kate Smith, Christopher Columbus, Richard Stockton, even Founding Fathers. What are you trying to accomplish? You can't change history. Is it because of Trump seriously?

    Here in Dallas (TX), statues have been removed, the names of schools, parks, and streets have been changed, and there have been multiple protest marches--one of which proved tragic, as five police officers were ambushed and killed--yet history hasn't changed despite all of the attempts to erase it. Appeasement and activism will not change facts.

    A gullible society and Left-winged propaganda fed by NBC and CNN.

    The best way to combat changes is to record the history. Once you have recorded proof, nobody can tell you "Oh it always been this way!" or "I don't believe it was that way before" or even getting yourself laughed at.

    Record the evidence when you get a chance.

    Not the names you mention. Confederate statures are a reminder of slavery. Something these people fought to retain human beings to slavery.

    No one is erasing history, but statues are not for recording history...they are for honoring history.

    Some people are being honored for less than honorable behavior. That being said, the liberals (of course) are taking things too far and soon ALL statues will be gone since no one is perfect.

    Bogus question since "everyone" doesn't want to do it. It has nothing to do with President Trump. It is just a bunch of ignoramuses being led by the nose to commit acts of vandalism.

    We have these things called books, you cant erase history by just removing a statue.

    And where are people taking down statues of the founders?
