We are going to have to do far more than take down Robert E. Lee’s statue.

We have to close the US Military Academy at West Point. Not only was Lee a West Point graduate, but in 1962 the U.S. Army named the West Point barracks after Robert E. Lee. Two New York congress persons want to change the name of the barracks, but we can’t be satisfied with half-way measures. The entire institution is tainted. And so is the U.S. Army. We have to close down the Army also.

We have to close Arlington National Cemetery and remove all the burials to another location, because Arlington National Cemetery was Robet E. Lee’s land.

And we are going to have to take down the Washington Monument, because George Washington let his granddaughter marry Robert E. Lee.

Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, has a racially insensitive name and is in need of a name change.

And this is just for starters.
