[PHOTOS] Confederate Statues Vandalized in South Carolina and Texas


Confederate statues and monuments in South Carolina and at one Texas university have been vandalized this week, in the midst of a big national discussion about the Confederate flag.

On Sunday, a Confederate monument at White Point Gardens was vandalized with graffiti reading “Black Lives Matter,” “This is the problem,” and “This is the root of our evil.”
