Taylor Swift: ‘As A Tennessean, It Makes Me Sick That There Are Monuments Standing In Our State That Celebrate Racist Historical Figures Who Did Evil Things.’

Taylor Swift demands for “racist” monuments to be dismantled. 

“As a Tennessean, it makes me sick that there are monuments standing in our state that celebrate racist historical figures who did evil things. Edward Carmack and Nathan Bedford Forrest were DESPICABLE figures in our state history and should be treated as such.”

Taylor Swift is on a crusade to rid her home state of racist statues honoring “villains” … and she wants to give them the boot forever.

Taylor says it makes her sick that men like Edward Carmack and Nathan Bedford Forrest are honored with statues in Tennessee … she says they are both “despicable” figures who should be remembered and treated as such.

Taylor’s first salvo took aim at Carmack’s statue, which was sitting inside the state Capitol in Nashville until last week, when Black Lives Matter protesters tore it down.

Tennessee has vowed to replace the toppled statue — it’s part of state law — but Taylor says it’s a waste of state funds and missed opportunity to do the right thing.
