Confederate Monuments Vandalized

EXPECT MORE OF THIS … 

|| By FITSNEWS ||  Vandals in Charleston, S.C. spray-painted the words “Black Lives Matter” on a Confederate memorial in White Point Garden – part of the city’s historic downtown battery area.

The red spray paint was first observed by police officers Sunday evening – and a green tarp was placed over the base of the monument to hide the graffiti.

The defacing comes in the aftermath of last week’s “Holy City Massacre,” a horrific, racially motivated church shooting at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in downtown Charleston, S.C.

Unveiled in 1932 as a tribute to the “Defenders of Charleston – Fort Sumter,” the monument was erected by the Charleston Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
