I mean -- understand that these statues were often put up for the express purpose of defining "this is white town, you [black people] don't cross this line". They're markers of the literal geography of racism.
The fact that they have used "this is a monument to dead soldiers" as a defense against protest and removal (from the time of installation to the modern day) is both intentional and dishonest.
