I say keep up all the confederate statues and erect Nat Turner statues right next to them.

Nat Turner was an enslaved African American who led a rebellion of slaves and free blacks in Virginia on August 21, 1831. The rebels went from plantation to plantation, freeing slaves along the way. The rebellion resulted in the deaths of 55 to 65 slave owners. The owners organized militias, army troops and mobs - who attacked and killed 120 people of color, most of whom were not involved in the revolt. In the aftermath, the state quickly arrested and executed 55 blacks accused of being part of Turner's revolt.

Looks like a reversed image of Fredrick Douglass to me.
