Cory Booker on Confederate Monuments

In US news and current events today, Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey took to the podium to condemn Confederate monuments and Confederate statues as 'an assault' on American values. The controversy over the large amount of Confederate monument, Confederate statue, and Confederate flag controversy has taken on a new meaning after the police killing of George Floyd ushered in a global movement of George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter protests. These monuments to the Confederacy to little more than glorify treasonous traitors who fought a war against their fellow Americans in order to keep people enslaved. The fact that there is even a Confederate flag controversy or a Confederate statues controversy in 2020 is baffling, as Sen. Cory Booker points out. For our nation to move on and begin healing the wounds of slavery and the civil war and embracing the undisputed fact that BLM, we must continue to make sure that Confederate statues removed and returned to the dustbin of history. #CoryBooker #BlackLivesMatter #ConfederateStatues #ConfederateFlag #ConfederateMonuments #Confederate #CivilRights #Racism #Justice #BLM #News #NowThis #NowThisNews This video "Cory Booker on Confederate Monuments", first appeared on
