    Happy Lee-Jackson day Virginians

    For the mods:
    This is not intended to be a race bashing post, or anything like that.

    I was born and raised in VA, my family tree goes directly back along the family name to members of the army's of the CSA, It's a Heritage thing, Most don't understand.

    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand

    I liked it more when it was Lee-Jackson-King day in VA, but some people couldn't stomach having 2 CSA Generals share a day with Dr. King. So much for racial unity and reconciliation. But there is a bill in the General Assembly to apologize for slavery. About 141 years too late, but that's just one man's opinion.

    On the flip side, I have absolutely nothing against Dr. King, but it does me good to see that we are honoring those to whom history has given "short shrift". We should honor our Confederate fallen as we honor all of them, they contributed in building this country as well.
