Re: “Ben Tillman was a racist, terrorist, and murderer: It's time to take down his statue

Is there a monument to the black legislators elected during reconstruction? Those people exhibited true courage. Can any of you imagine being an elected official in SC during that period??! They knew they were most likely be lynched or worse. These first black legislators in SC represent a significant part of the State's history that needs to be memorialized at the state capitol. What Tillman did was not courageous. I suggest keeping the statue but changing the inscription to describe that Tillman was a terrorist, that he murdered blacks to keep them from voting, etc. Simply state the facts.
