Taylor Swift Says Confederate Monuments Make Her Sick As A Tennessean

Four Grammy Awards-winning singer Taylor Swift spoke of racism after a long silence on the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement and took Twitter to express her thoughts about racist historical figures’ monuments.

‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ singer wrote:

“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.”

The 30-year-old Taylor Swift added:

“Taking down statues isn’t going to fix centuries of systemic oppression, violence and hatred that black people have had to endure but it might bring us one small step closer to making ALL Tennesseans and visitors to our state feel safe – not just the white ones.”

Taylor Swift posted a series of tweets, like the ones that above mentioned, to call for Tennessee officials to remove these monuments.
