Some unappreciated points: Lee, who had been critical of slavery, indicated in his resignation from the U.S. Army and subsequent command of Southern forces, that his action was taken to defend his native state of Virginia (from Union invasion)--no mention of slavery. Contrary to some reports, he never owned slaves, but was manager of his father-in-law's estate, which included slaves that Lee processed into freedom (during the War).

Obviously these "students" need some history lessons.

I would very much like to see these same students check out the web-site of Life Dynamics Incorporated, watch the DVD Maafa 21 and investigate whether or not there is a link between white racism and the killing of unborn children who are non-white!?
