Black Lives Matter Protesters Need an Education in REAL History.

General Robert E. Lee’s statue is one of seven statues being moved off the mall at the UT-Austin campus to an obscure location.  Lee was a Confederate and, according to the complaints, he was a symbol of ‘white supremacy’.  Lee, ironically, abhorred the institution of slavery.  “There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil,” he once said.
While Confederates have become the latest target of the left because they represent ‘white supremacy’, what about the blacks who owned slaves? There were many.
Some free black people in this country bought and sold other black people, and did so at least since 1654 and continued to do so right through the Civil War.
