Petition to replace Confederate statues with Dolly Parton gains steam

Protesters in Louisiana and Tennessee are calling for the elimination of Confederate monument, and in their place, they want statues erected of country icon Dolly Parton. The petition has over 5,400 signatures, as of Monday morning. It reads, ’History should not be forgotten, but we need not glamorize those who do not deserve our praise. Instead, let us honor a true Tennessee hero, Dolly Parton.’

I love Dolly’s songs and her personality but when we equate celebrities with the people that forged our society we’re done. Maybe we ARE done. Let’s hoist a bronze Rick Astley and rename the land Clownworldia.

Urgh, hate it when people want to replace political figures with a celebrity. If it must be replaced, replace it with some one who is important to the society politically. Not someone who wrote some catchy tunes.

I love Dolly and a statue of her would be nice but dont try to erase our history. Is history pretty? No. Is it simple? Again no. but we can't sweep it under the rug. Face the good with the bad and learn from it.

Don’t have an opinion about Dolly vs Confederate but at least these people are going about it the right way by petitions rather than turning up with a mob and tearing it down

Step 1: Replace Confederate monuments Step 2 (already started in Portland): Replace the founding fathers of the US. Step 3: Remove statues of non-color until statues of color are represented equally.
