Protesters in Durham toppled a Confederate statue outside the old courthouse on Monday evening.
The monument of a Confederate soldier was erected in 1924. The words “in memory of the boys who wore the gray” are inscribed on it.
According to the media, the crowd of protesters was about 100 people.
North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper was not very upset with the incident:
The racism and deadly violence in Charlottesville is unacceptable but there is a better way to remove these monuments #durham – RC

The mainstream media and the so-called liberals are conducting a large-scale campaign against Confederate moonuments, statements and other signs of this part of the US history.
The campaign has already led to a series of violent situations across the country with the most recent in Charlottesville where a person was killed and dozens injured last weekend.
