Finally, some good news.
Virginia’s governor, Northam, is removing the huge statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E Lee from a prominent place in Richmond and placing it in storage.
This statue put there in 1890, symbolizes the confederates stance on slavery. That Lee was fighting to keep black people as SLAVES.
We must be better today and put these symbolic statues in a museum or a park dedicated to the tragic history of slavery in this country and showing how the Civil war divided this country.
Not unlike what is happening today with Trump dividing this country with his white supremists support. It has to stop somewhere.
Black lives Matter.

Yes! I do wish they would melt all the confederate statues down and make new monuments to Black American heroes and memorials to Black victims of violence.
There’s a GREAT article in the Washington Post written by Robert E Lee’s great-grandson. Check it out.
