Many cities are removing or reinterpreting their Confederate monuments,
with the understanding that they commemorate racism. But few Americans
realize that pioneer monuments placed across the country are also racist.

Those statues showed white men claiming land and building farms and cities
in the West. They explicitly celebrated the dominant white view of the Wild
West progressing from American Indian “savagery” to white
“civilization.”
