Weekend Edition commentator Diane Roberts discusses a statue recently erected in Selma, Alabama which is generating controversy. The statue depicts a Confederate Civil War General who later went on to become a founding member of the KKK. Roberts says this part of southern heritage does not merit commemoration.
