The City of Shreveport has announced it will be relocating the Confederate monument from the front of the Shreveport courthouse to the parking lot of the Bossier City Walmart located on Airline Drive. Sources claim that city officials have deemed this the most appropriate location for such a statue.

“I think it’s a good move,” discussed resident shopper Jim Peyton, “There’s no better way to learn about history than a monument to white supremacy in the middle of a Walmart parking lot. I think it’ll get a lot of visibility; I’ve never seen any other poles or signage out there.”
