HOUSTON -- Why is it that violent acts of terrorism, like the horrifying scene in Charlottesville, only add fuel to the fire, calling for the removal of all Confederate statues nation-wide?

Religious and political leaders met at City Hall to show solidarity with the victims of Charlottesville, a clear message that criminal acts of this nature will not be tolerated.
