AP Hill is a safe target

Saw this story at The Gateway Pundit

In one of the most disturbing tales to come from Richmond, Virginia’s moves to erase history, they are now planning to dig up the grave of Confederate General Ambrose Powell Hill, according to a new report.

To make the matter even more ghoulish, the city has not actually come up with a plan yet on what to do with his remains that have been in the location since 1892.

Now one might wonder why they would bother targeting AP Hill rather than tackling some of the actual problems facing the black community but I don’t wonder at all.

You see it’s a lot easier to fight a battle against a dead general then it is to handle low test scores

  • or unsafe neighborhoods
  • or drugs
  • or black unemployment
  • or shootings
  • or fatherlessness

All of these things are actual problems in the black community that are having a horrible impact in the cities. But each of those problems requires time, effort and the use of political capital against those who can fight back and have an interest in doing so.

When you see people fighting battles against dead generals rather than current problems you know that they’re not interested.

    1. Given that it’s white liberals who have really pushed this kind of thing that argument doesn’t hold water.

      Alexander Stephens might have made that argument but I don’t buy it.
