I enjoy all opinions on the matter. I don't have a strong leaning in any


direction. But to link that article (which leaves a lot of nuance out of the historical occurrences) and say uhhh no is the same type of dismissive response that has resulted in a reality TV star ascending to the highest position in the country. If you think that Lee shouldn't be celebrated, I can't argue that. But it's simply not as simple as the author of the article lays it out. History never is.
If you want to whitewash history and remove all the things that make people uncomfortable, let's blow up the Rotunda, Monticello (built by slaves), and while we're at let's raze the entire university. Hell may as well move the white house somewhere and demolish that building too. Can't risk someone being triggered.
