    Statues and monuments to go.

    Colosseum because of the number of Christians killed there.

    Quite right. Plus many of the gladiators who fought there were slaves so tear it down.

    Also bad news for some on here because the Guardian will have to go too. In the 1860's the Manchester Guardian supported the slave owning Confederacy in the American Civil War. It's founder also made his money in the cotton trade, whose cotton was picked by slaves in America. When do we start the march on their premises?

    Well now you have pointed this out I am sure the current owners of The Guardian will do the decent thing.

    I am not sure what that should be - but I am sure The Guardian will know.
