The southern US city of Charlottesville on Saturday took down two statues honoring Civil War generals for the pro-slavery Confederacy which had become the focus of protests, including a deadly 2017 rally of white supremacists.

The statues of generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson are among hundreds of Confederate monuments in the United States now widely considered symbols of racism, even if their supporters argue they are a historical legacy.

Workers in the Virginia city used a crane to remove the statues — which depicted the men in uniform mounted on horses — as a crowd watched and cheered. No clashes were immediately reported.

  1. Eisenhower, who rather did quite a bit for civil rights, had portraits the four Americans admired most in the White House
    one of them was Robert E Lee

    • Robert Lee didn’t want any monuments to the south. he wanted the nation to heal. if it wasn’t for his loyalty to his locale of upbringing he wouldn’t have led the south against the union.

  2. America used to be the greatest nation on earth. Now, due to a few evil wealthy white elitists and their ever corrupt friends in the DNC controlled media, they’ve destroyed any vestige of freedoms we’ve once enjoyed. It’s now a race to the bottom. White middle class is being destroyed before our very eyes. The rich white elitist pigs have their safety plans all worked out already, so they can easily escape the mess they are creating.
