New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu addressed the city about the removal of four Confederate monuments. 21 min. 35 sec.
Please listen to this speech all the way through. During a time of political lies, hate and inanities, these are words to live by.
I'm tired of people who claim to be crippled by the depressing events taking place in our country.
Yes, it's depressing to have a spiteful fool for our president. It is horrifying to watch his antics be an excuse for racist evildoers to blatantly flaunt human rights, and harm and kill people of color, law-abiding immigrants and those of faiths different from theirs.
This is a time to wake up, step up and speak out - to protect our constitutional rights and law, and to protect our fellow citizens from abuse and disrespect.
