The reason why the confederate cemetery was maintained is because people actually cared about the place. Evergreen was neglected by the very black community for decades until one guy went out and began to clean the place up while addressing the matter to the public at large, which finally got people to come out and help tend to the place.

The issue is less about race and more about people caring about their own history and heritage. The sad fact of the matter is the black community has neglected its own past, which is, in many ways, is the tragedy here. If you don’t care for your history, you will let it decay and rot away.
