I don't disagree with you. If Facebook wants to promote equality, then ALL voices should be heard.

As far as the public figures / statues, if they don't want them out in the city, put them in a museum. As far as Lincoln, Churchill, and Ghandi, schools should be teaching facts. Like "in the time of Churchill, public opinion thought he was a great leader / speaker. In the current era, he is not portrayed that way because...." This lets the students decide how they want to think of those people. In elementary school, I would think that simple facts and figures are most beneficial to students. It would be in high school and beyond that more information could be provided and could spark great debates in these classes.
