Since the events of Charlottesville, monuments in Columbus have been put under the microscope. It’s as if the entire city is in an interrogation room, forced to decipher answers to the following questions:

Does the Christopher Columbus monument on Capitol Square represent white supremacy?
Should it be removed?
Was the vandalism of the statue in Camp Chase an uncalled for act of disrespect to American history?
Should the Confederate statue be removed?
Should all Confederate markers be removed?

Here’s a look at how some readers of 614NOW answered these questions:

Headline: Does Christopher Columbus monument support white supremacy?

Headline: Confederate marker bites the dust in Worthington

Headline: Headless Confederate statue in Camp Chase Cemetery

The controversy persists, keep the conversation going in the comments below..
