Vandals target Confederate monuments in half-dozen states

( KTRS ) Vandals are targeting memorials dedicated to the Confederacy, leaving graffiti on the monuments in parks and outside government buildings.

This week, the slogan “Black lives matter” was painted on memorials in a half-dozen states.

Michael Allen is a lecturer in American culture studies at Washington University in St. Louis. He compared the vandalism to the toppling of statues in Russia at the end of the Soviet Union.

Resentment of Confederate symbols boiled over after last week’s massacre at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, in Charleston, South Carolina.

One of the defaced monuments was in St. Louis’ Forest Park, 10 miles from Ferguson.
