Jefferson Davis and Woodrow Wilson Statues Removed, Deemed Racist

Caving in to outcries that they represent the South’s racist past, Greg Fenves, the president of the University of Texas in Austin, announced on Thursday that the statue of Jefferson Davis will be removed from the campus’s Main Mall and moved to the school’s Dolph Briscoe Center for American History.

The statue of Woodrow Wilson was moved as well to “maintain symmetry on the mall.”
