    Default Racial reckoning turns focus to roadside historical markers

    🤔A Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission plaque is seen along a roadside in New Castle, Pa. A recent review of all 2,500 markers has resulted in the state removing two markers, revising two and ordering new text for two others so far.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. Pennsylvania had been installing historical markers for more than a century when the racist violence in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017 brought a fresh round of questions from the public about just whose stories were being told on the state's roadsides and the language used to tell them.

    The increased scrutiny helped prompt a review of all 2,500 markers by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, a process that has focused on factual errors, inadequate historical context, and racist or otherwise inappropriate references.

    It's like nobody ever read "1984".

    There's merit to carrying your backup mag in a backup gun.

    As the saying goes, "1984 was meant as a warning, not an instruction manual".

    You think they would want them intact as proof of the systemic racism.

    The first marker starts out with "unruly militia" which sets the tone clearly without needing changes. No disrespect to General Hand, but he did not complete his mission to Cleveland.

    Of course they read it. It's their strategy guide.

    1984 was never written.
    There are two kinds of guns. Those I have acquired, and those I hope to.
