I have lived in Georgia all my life I am sick and tired of all this none since, the confederate flag the statues are all history for everyone I am tired of them being destroyed by lunatics I am tired of them being moved and put away they need to stay where they are. When it comes to stone mountain leave the carving alone! Stop getting your feeling hurt from a long time ago you ppl are insane. You going to take down statues you take down every Obama statue you take every statue down of Martin Luther King which I think he has every right to stay up than Obama does. But you going to take every statue down you take Obama down and Martin Luther king Jr also or you put them all back up
