The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 426: Arkansas Removes Lee's Birthday

From the March 17, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Arkansas lawmakers vote to remove Lee from King holiday.  (Loss, well, sort of)  They moved Lee's birthday.  I actually do not like having both observed at the same time.  But, after all, Lee's birthday was observed first.  So, perhaps move King's birthday to the earlier or later weekend.  Either that, or make a payment to a Confederate descendant organization.

But what really galled me was the statement one lawmaker in Arkansas made.  Rep. Jana Della Rosa said:  "We are taking Robert E. Lee and we are putting him in the basement and we're acting like we're embarrassed that he even existed."

And, she is a white person.
