Petition seeks to remove Denton Confederate statue (TX)





While to some the statue of a Confederate soldier that stands before the Denton County Courthouse represents a piece of history, others say they believe it just represents hypocrisy.

That stand has incited two University of North Texas students to start a petition for the removal of the historical landmark, a statue of a Confederate soldier holding his gun to represent the South in the Civil War.

"It's really very frustrating that so many people would look at this and clap," said Aron Duhon, one of the students behind the petition.
