    We have an essay on the moral grounds for removing statues and all I can think is past condemnation and write a big paragraph on that, I can't think of multiple points for why we should remove statues

    If statues are meant to be reflective of the values we uphold in society, and representations thereof of history figures who have done so then these statues perhaps need updating? That's not so much about condemning the previously statued, more about modernising the topic of who we look at as societal influencers, idols and role models from History.
