Someone with deep pockets is still fighting the Civil War. In Petersburg, Virginia, “The school names A.P. Hill, Robert E. Lee and J.E.B. Stuart were changed to Cool Spring Elementary, Lakemont Elementary and Pleasants Lane Elementary, respectively,” WSLS reported. “The city received a $20,000 donation earlier this year to cover the cost. A school spokeswoman said at the time that the donor wished to remain anonymous but said she felt called to make the donation for racial justice.”

I wonder if she will give as much cash to people with those names….
