For this week’s Daily Post Challenge of Atop, I have a photo from my trip to New Orleans a couple months ago. The Robert E. Lee Monument is a massive column with a small (by comparison) statue of General Lee atop. I have finally had some time to edit all the photos from that trip, and made a portfolio of those, which can be seen in the link in the menu above.
Although this monument is on the National Register of Historic Places, there is a real possibility of it being taken down. In an effort to rid America of all things associated with the South, this statue has been involved in court cases during the last couple years. Will this eradicate racism? No. What can be put up in its place that will not offend people now or in another hundred years? Perhaps a Big Mac and an order of fries?
