Taylor Swift calls to remove Tennessee White Supremacist statues

Taylor Swift continues to voice her passion. In a lengthy post shared Friday, the 30-year-old singer called for the removal of white supremacist statues in her home state of Tennessee. Swift begins by sharing what she calls the Capital Commission and the Tennessee Historical Commission to "look at the implications of how painful it is to fight for these monuments."

He said he was "sick" to see monuments "celebrating a racist historian who did bad things", "white supremacist newspaper editor" Edward Cormac and Confederate general-KKK Grand Wizard Nathan Bedford Forest "depressed".

She explains what these people are known for, and that Cormac's recent shabby statue replacement is "a waste of state funds and an opportunity to do the right thing."

Although she believes that moving the statues will not cure centuries of oppression, violence and hatred, Blacks endure, saying, "This should be done for all Tennesseans and a small step towards the feeling of visitors to our state. Safe - not just white."

"We need to rethink the status of people who transform hate policies of racism from 'heroes' to 'villains,'" she writes, noting that villains are not worthy of idols. "

"When you are fighting to honor racists, you show all the black tenseness and all their friends who stand by you, and you continue this cycle of wounds. You can't change history, but you can change it."

Weeks after George Floyd's fatal arrest "provoked" the "lover" singer Donald Trump to "threaten violence".

"After extinguishing the flame of white supremacy and racism throughout your presidency, should you praise moral superiority before it threatens violence?" She wrote. "'When the robbery starts, the shooting starts' ??? We'll vote for you in November. E RialdonaldTrump."

In her Netflix documentary, Taylor Swift: Miss Americana, Swift explained why it is important to speak politically despite some objections from her band and family.

"It's from the perspective of humanity, and my moral compass is telling me what to do. I know I'm right, and I don't really care about the results," she told Variety. Said. "My dad is worried about my safety and the risks to my life, and we have to see how many strollers we deal with on a regular basis and [I] know he's his child. He's from here."

She admits that she hesitated immediately to speak because she didn't want people to hear what she was thinking.

"Every time I didn't talk about politics as a teenager, I got compliments on it. It was wild. I was like, 'I'm a 22-year-old girl - that's what people don't like to hear about politics.'
