A letter from the NAACP
"As such, our principal objection and litigate efforts until now had been directed to the Confederate flag use as an official symbol. However, we feel we are at a crossroad and feel that a compromise would not be beneficial to anyone. In the near future, efforts will be aimed at the removal of racist names, mascots, monuments; and ending the glorification of Confederate soldiers through what is termed reenacting. We also feel there could be better use of State and Federal resources by the closing of museums and battlefields, which are dedicated to the preservation of slavery. These funds can be put to a more productive use for society as a whole". January 12, 1990 Kweisi Mfume.
While they stopped their movement to close the battlefields, their version of the war has been forcibly inserted into the teaching at every location; everything else has come to pass. Look at what has happened to the 150th celebration, Reidsville NC and Lexington Va.; you can't depend on someone else to fight this battle.
STAND UP FOR YOUR HERITAGE!!!!
