One of the leaders in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) spoke out against the removal of Confederate statues, saying they are a part of history.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday at City Hall in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, local NAACP chapter president Esther Lee expressed her frustration with the current state of affairs in the U.S., WFMZ reported.

“I think it’s all senseless. All senseless,” Lee said. “You know, we’re 108 years in as NAACPers and we might think things would improve, but they do not. You know we still have this factor about black and white.”


  1. I wish blacks would come to respect the statues somewhat. I respect some black heroes.

    Booker T. Washington is the one who encourages blacks to work in spite of discrimination and hardship, right? I forget. Anyway, one of the black heroes actually cared for blacks. I liked him.

    Even in the worst society, if one lives below his means, saves what he can, and doesn't lose it to some health crisis, he can pass money down. Eventually your family then has money and with it more opportunity.

    Giving in to despair or apathy is not productive.
