Hosted By: James Keys & Tunde Ogunlana

We have seen efforts to remove Confederate items from places of honor pick up in recent times, and James Keys and Tunde Ogunlana discuss the armed protest of a Confederate monument in Georgia on July 4th (01:24), including whether the images of armed protestors could be used to undermine the message of the protestors (17:10). The guys also discuss whether naked appeals to a “Confederate heritage” can still be politically viable in the U.S. (24:52) and the apparent attempts to reduce the issue to a partisan one (29:56).
