The Official Grand Master Jay, the NFAC founder, told ABC News he believes the Stone Mountain carving is a reminder of white supremacy, a history that cannot be cast simply as southern Confederate heritage.

“The United States has allowed it to exist but it's become a pain point. It's gotten to the point where it's more so fuel to the fire than it does to remind folks of their heritage. And of course, there are both sides to that, but I do believe that this particular monument is the pink elephant in the room,” he said.

Other organizations such as Black Lives Matter and the NAACP have also called for the removal of the monument.
