  1. Well done. It’s way past time to dump the loser confederates.

  2. This is all happening on Trumps watch. All the southerners who voted him will be crying in their sleep.

      Crying in their leaky trailer homes. Lmao

    • This is a very slippery slope……

    • NOT YOU 🤦‍♀️

    • That’s A Comforting Image, Captain. There Are Many Woke Americans Cry Everyday Knowing this Corrupt, Demonic Impeached Traitor That Is Destroying Our Country And The Lives Of American Citizens, While He Plays Golf, Self Enrich Himself And his Worthless Grifter Spawns Continues To Breath. . Hopefully, they Sleep Longer So they Can Cry Longer. . Words Of Truth to them. . Frankly, My Dears.. We Dont Give A @**.

Along with how YOU Would Of Done It Better.     The only person who is going to decide whether you live or die is YOU. Do something stupid and Karma is going to be your best friend.     DON’T let Your President Trump TELL YOU What To Do, Show him YOU are in charge. TEAR UP, THAT TRUMP CHECK!     What has Your Elected President Trump prevented YOU from accomplishing in YOUR LIFE.  What have the democrats done for you?  Democratic response to the virus.

    Think about who initially named that school.

  9. Yay! Joseph Campbell said, “If you want to change the world, change the metaphor.” Congratulations to the Virginia School Board for changing the metaphor and, thereby, changing the world.

    • @The Tweatles Princess Willy, do *YOU* deny you’re homosexual? You’re obsessed with your homosexuality.

    • @The Tweatles You can deny it all you want, but you’re still a homosexual. Embrace it, Princess Willy, stop hiding behind three different accounts.

    Trevor Noah told a funny story about a school district that decided to rename everything named after General Lee, but wanted to cut costs replacing the signs, stationary, etc. by renaming them after other people named Lee. Trevor Noah suggested Spike Lee and Stan Lee, which would be awesome. My kid wondered about Bruce Lee, too.

    I attended Robert E. Lee Elementary, and it was changed a couple of years ago. It didn’t matter then to a grade schooler, but I’m glad now.

    • Chris P. Bacon You’re actually making the point that the name does not matter, then or now. 💯😂

    • Chris P. Bacon | June 28, 2020 at 9:30 PM | Reply

      @24james It did matter then, I just didn’t know it. It’s relevant now in light of recent events. I’m proud that it was changed without any social upheaval.

    • @Chris P. Bacon Of COURSE it mattered. If you’re an impressionable young student at a SCHOOL, from the instant the Civil War comes up in history class, you’ll *begin* to get **some kind** of education (or indoctrination) about what it all meant. And glorifying Lee and the Confederacy should have quite an effect on people of color who go to that school.

      How do you think the young black students and their parents feel about sending their children to a school that honors a man who fought to keep their ancestors in bondage? How do they feel if they understand that the people in authority all around them revere him and all he stood for?

      And it also has an effect on the white students, too: many of them start to get brainwashed with the idea that the Confederate Flag stands for “heritage, and not hate”; which is complete apologist bullsh*t.

    They might as well change the name of Route 1 (currently Jefferson Davis Hwy)! Glad they are finally taking down honoring confederate traitors. Thanks.

    Lee was the losing general
    Why would elevate the loser

  15. Richard MacLean | June 28, 2020 at 8:26 PM | Reply

    Look conservatives… If you want to pray and idolize losers… Put up statues of Judas Iscariot… or Benedict Arnold.

    *Better late than never… Now let’s get Mississippi to dump its bigoted flag*

    They named a school after Trump: Adderall High.

  18. We don’t have any high schools named after Timothy McVeigh or Benedict Arnold.
    Just sayin….

  19. I like it when racist lose, and lose is what they are doing.

    If there’s ever going to be serious change in this country, it has to start in our schools.
