Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam announced on Thursday he is removing the historic statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in Richmond, Virginia.
The Robert E. Lee statue in Richmond was created by French sculptor Antonin Mercie. The cornerstone to the monument was placed in October 1887.
The statue was vandalized by leftists this past week in George Floyd protests.
It’s racist and offensive.
Northam is famous for posing in blackface or KKK in his college yearbook.
His ancestors owned slaves.
