CSUSB professor interviewed about University of North Carolina’s effort to get rid of a Confederacy monument

A CSUSB professor was interviewed for an article about the University of North Carolina system’s effort to get rid of a Confederate statue known as “Silent Sam.” The statue on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was dedicated in 1913 in memory of students and faculty who fought and died for the Confederacy in the U.S. Civil War.
Brian Levin, head of the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, said the fact that UNC won't share a county with the statute any more 'tells you something.' Exhibiting this sort of monument, he said, 'should be done in a context that involves PhDs, not people who are trying to intimidate people with Confederate flags.'
'There's difference between a World War II museum in Washington and folks who'd like to refight it,' Levin said.
