Powerline reports that the SPLC has created a graph correlating the creation of Confederate monuments to the year, and one interesting thing is that it does not correlate well with Klan activity. Even the bump during the Civil Rights era isn't as big as the bump prior to WWI. Another interesting thing is that, having spent a little bit of time in the South, the overall numbers don't seem that big--there seems to be some Confederate monument or other in every town big enough for a post office. So maybe there is a list of criteria the SPLC is using to determine what's big enough to count, or something interesting is going on on the Y axis.
Just food for thought.
