Re: The State of Louisiana Erasing Confederate History

"In this enlightened age, there are few I believe, but what will acknowledge, that slavery as an institution, is a moral & political evil in any Country. It is useless to expatiate on its disadvantages. I think it however a greater evil to the white man than to the black race, & while my feelings are strongly enlisted in behalf of the latter, my sympathies are more strong for the former. The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, socially & physically. The painful discipline they are undergoing, is necessary for their instruction as a race, & I hope will prepare & lead them to better things. How long their subjugation may be necessary is known & ordered by a wise Merciful Providence."

— Robert E. Lee, to Mary Anna Lee, December 27, 1856

The evidence cited in favor of the claim that Lee opposed slavery included his direct statements and his actions before and during the war, including Lee's support of the work by his wife and her mother to liberate slaves and fund their move to Liberia, the success of his wife and daughter in setting up an illegal school for slaves on the Arlington plantation, the freeing of Custis' slaves in 1862, and, as the Confederacy's position in the war became desperate, his petitioning slaveholders in 1864–65 to allow slaves to volunteer for the Army with manumission offered as a reward for outstanding service.


I don't think people know enough about history to do this, yet we have to go around with "Obamacare" when he was easily the most dividing president in history. What the fuck ever double standard!

Re: The State of Louisiana Erasing Confederate History

It's a statue. And one that honors a man who fought to defend a man's rights to own another man. It's as simple as that. Franco is a part of Spanish history, but no one is going to put up a statue to commemorate him.

Re: The State of Louisiana Erasing Confederate History

There's a difference between erasing history and removing monuments to assholes. Glad they are doing this. Took them long enough.
