Me and Mali on an Idaho shaped park monument. I expect we will be entering a monument erection drought. This particular monument commemorates the arrival of Oregon Trail pioneers in the Boise River valley back in the 19th century. This marker was placed before it was widely understood that the spread of white people is not something to celebrate but something to relentlessly condemn. Eventually, this harmless rock will be seen as a blatant white supremacy dog whistle that must be pulled down and ground into sand. History must be carefully edited lest we accidentally learn something.
