Eiron, The Goddess of Irony, Strikes Again!

The South Will Rise Again. With some help, that is.

The WaPo is reporting that the recently removed statue(s) of Robert E. Lee might be headed to the Black History Museum:

RICHMOND — City and state officials have reached an agreement to transfer ownership of the statue and pedestal of Gen. Robert E. Lee to the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia, which has also agreed to take possession of all the other Confederate memorials removed from Richmond since last year.
Under this arrangement, Richmond’s Black History Museum would work in partnership with the Valentine museum — which has chronicled the city’s history for more than a century — and local community members to determine the fates of the stone and bronze symbols of the Confederacy.
The deal requires approval by Richmond’s City Council. Mayor Levar Stoney — who hammered out some of the details with Gov. Ralph Northam (D) — said in a written statement that the arrangement enables the community to take a deliberate approach in reckoning with such divisive symbols.

This is a fine idea, and boy-howdy, that’s gonna leave on mark on the racists’ faces. They won’t go THERE to pay their respects to their leader.

  1. I still think they should be melted down for appropriate refashioning: bilge pumps for garbage barges, or maybe plumbing for sewage treatment plants.

    I began my public school experiment in Norfolk, VA. The typical day on the playground was the reenactment of the Uncivil War, where me and about three other boys faced off with about twenty rebels, such was the power of the myth of The War of Northern Aggression. But evolution and education seems to have won the battle for the hearts and minds of Americana. The jettisoning of the formerly highly revered and now controversial statue into the ownership of the Black History Museum speaks volumes for where we as a country have evolved. This is truly heartwarming news…

    I suspect the description for each piece will not be whitewashed.

  7. Melt ’em down, cast them as coins, and strike them as John Lewis memorial medallions.
