After the violence waged by white nationalists at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left a woman dead, politicians and activist groups across the country are calling for the removal of statues and monuments commemorating Confederate leaders. Among them is Mayor Bill de Blasio, who late Wednesday night announced that the city will conduct "a 90-day review of all symbols of hate on city property."

The mayor specifically cited the violence of the Charlottesville rally, which culminated in Ohio resident James Alex Fields Jr. allegedly ramming his car into a group of counter-demonstrators, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring at least 19 others. Fields is suspected to have been one of the thousands of white supremacist, Neo-Nazi, Ku Klux Klan, and alt-right conservatives that attended last weekend's "Unite the Right" rally to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee.

De Blasio went on to specify last night that a marker in Lower Manhattan's "Canyon of Heroes" commemorating French Vichy State leader and Nazi collaborator Henri Philippe Petain is on the early short list of symbols to be taken down.

“It’s the beginning framework of what will ideally be a long-term approach to the evaluation of public structures and controversial pieces of public art,” City Hall spokesman Eric Phillips told the Post in a statement. City officials told the tabloid they plan to determine which public hate symbols are removed based on the findings of a panel of "relevant experts and community leaders."

In May, Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind called on the Mayor to remove the markers commemorating Petain. "This guy was no hero. This guy was a horrible, horrible person who cooperated with the Nazis," Hikind said at the time.

On Wednesday, Gothamist reported that monuments to Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, two slaveholding Confederate generals, have been on display at Bronx Community College for decades as entries into a "Hall of Fame for Great Americans." BCC President Thomas Isekenegbe issued a statement Wednesday afternoon announcing that both statues will be removed and replaced, and Governor Cuomo has since echoed the calls for their removal. "There are many great Americans, many of them New Yorkers worthy of a spot in this great hall. These two confederates are not among them," Cuomo said.
