The mayor of a North Carolina town took it upon himself to take down a confederate monument.
Enfield Mayor Mondale Robinson said the decision to topple the 94-year-old monument Sunday night was based on the best interests of the 2,350 people who live there, and about 85-percent of those residents are Black.
Since the monument’s takedown, racist notes have been popping up around the town.
Enfield Mayor Mondale Robinson spoke with Roland Martin about the decision to remove the confederate monument and the racist response he has received as a result.
