A cheaper way to preserve BLM messages

I read in the July 10 Gazette that the University of Iowa is spending $1 million to remove the spray painted messages Black Lives Matter protesters left on campus buildings, and that the UI Library is promising to preserve the images of the graffiti “to ensure the messages are not forgotten and can help guide campus in its work to make meaningful changes.”

If the messages are so important, wouldn’t it be a lot cheaper just to leave the graffiti in place? Certainly then, no one would forget the messages.
