NEW YORK: Singer Taylor Swift has demanded the removal of all public statues of racist historical figures and white supremacists in her home state of Tennessee in the United States.
While addressing the Capital Commission and the Tennessee Historical Commission on her Instagram post, the singer asked the organizations to consider the implications of how hurtful it would be to continue fighting for these monuments.

I’m asking the Capitol Commission and the Tennessee Historical Commission to please consider the implications of how hurtful it would be to continue fighting for these monuments. When you fight to honor racists, you show black Tennesseans and all of their allies where you stand, and you continue this cycle of hurt. You can’t change history, but you can change this. 🙏
