Regarding Tom Smith’s April 4 Point of View “Historical Censorship a Concern”: he tries to make the point that as long as the situation is historically correct it should not offend any person/group.
In this case, I would assert that this is not likely; that it is more important to portray history in a way that is fair and balanced. I would submit that neither Rev. William Barber nor Smith are the source to present a story that is completely fair and balanced. I am certain that Keith Hardison is well aware of this situation and the fact that no group, including NAACP or Sons of Confederate Veterans, should exert excessive influence in these matters.
