Most speakers Thursday opposed removing the third national Confederate flag from the front lawn of the Sutherlin Mansion, which houses the Danville Museum of Fine Arts & History.And there's this:
Three residents spoke out in support of the flag’s removal. One speaker said it is “a sign of people trying to dominate other people.”Yeah, well most flags came about from one "people trying to dominate other people." Ummm . . . yeah, that's rather consistent throughout history. I suppose the American Indians, Japanese, etc. could make the same claim about Old Glory, no?
Also, if I recall correctly, didn't city officials in Danville decline Professor James Robertson's offer several years ago to donate his vast Civil War collection for a museum because of its "controversial nature"?
