The best thing about Robert E. Lee is he’s dead.

We should’ve known how pathologically incapable we are as a society of bringing consequences to powerful white dudes when we made a hero of a general who led a treasonous uprising that killed hundreds of thousands of Americans to protect the institution of slavery.

We shouldn’t make statues that look like Robert E Lee, we should make piñatas.

Next to every statue of Robert E Lee should be a smaller statue of Osama bin Laden.

Smaller because bin Laden didn’t kill nearly as many Americans.
