No matter what your stance on the whole Confederate Flag controversy, let’s agree, it’s never a good idea to break the law in order to prove your point. A Confederate monument at a Cemetery in Reidsville, NC., was vandalized with red and black graffiti Friday afternoon.

The writing on the monument reads:


Confederate Monument in NC Cemetery Vandalized

“Preserve this historic graffiti (It’s our heritage). The cause for which they fought, the cause of slavery was wrong. Black Lives Matter.”

However misguided, the graffiti depicts a fairly literate proclamation.


Because the monument is part of grave markers, this act is considered a felony.
