This is a normal post
My understanding is that people have been objecting to Colston's statue and the failure to address the slaving aspect of his history for many years.
I think the BLM protests gave momentum and a much higher profile to complaints that people had been making for a long time, with limited effect. Given the mood of the moment, I think people seized the opportunity to knock the statue down, and I reckon that was no bad thing.
