I grew up in Jacksonville and stand in solidarity with students and members of the community who want the name changed. Lost Cause symbolism only stands to maintain racial oppression and white supremacy and should have NO place in a school name. Take it down.

When you swear into the US military, you swear to protect the US from enemies both foreign and domestic. As a confederate soldier, Robert E. Lee was a domestic enemy of the United States. One, who did not care to fight a WHOLE war on US soil just to keep slaves. Hear me clear, Lee was not fighting to preserve the history of the South, he was fighting to keep slaves as a free labor source. That's it!

Lee was a monster. I am related to him on his mother's side.

It is embarrassing to say that I attended a school named for a traitor. They actually tried to teach me civics there!
