The “dismay” shown by Ms. Acevedo sadly is common among those transplants that don’t have roots in the South. They don’t understand that we celebrate the lives of our deceased and the end of World War II as well as many other historical events. The War Between the States was an unmitigated disaster for the Confederate States. It should never have happened but for hot heads on both sides; Lincoln and Davis included. We mourn the loss of so many on both sides that suffered and died.

She's an immigration activist trying to support the narrative that we're all a bunch of racist scumbags. She's a community organizer trying to foment unrest and anger to spin up her base. There is nothing naive or innocent about this writer. Wouldn't be surprised if she was a paid lobbyist for one of the racist Latino organizations.

Maybe the lady simply does not have enough to do. I would suggest taking up knitting or doing some volunteer work. Surely she has more to do than to write a letter to the local paper criticizing the locals!

You are so right, in regards to civil rights and slavery, like Paula Deen, we still don't know what we did wrong!
