Virginia NAACP Sues Schools With Confederate Names

A Virginia chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) filed a federal lawsuit which claims that school names honoring Confederate leaders “champion a legacy of segregation and oppression.”

Breitbart News reports that the lawsuit, filed against Hanover County and the school board for the district outside Richmond, VA, argues that Lee-Davis High School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School violate the rights of black students whose ancestors may have been slaves during the Civil War. The NAACP wants to “eradicate the vestiges of a shameful, racist educational system in Hanover County” by renaming the schools.

Renaming schools, like the Left’s Taliban-like removal or destruction of statues and artwork depicting important historical figures, actually has nothing to do with “eradicating the vestiges” of racism. It is about wiping the slate of the past clean in order to keep the populace ignorant and to rewrite history to suit the Left’s agenda.
