An Open Letter / Tucker Carlson / Pensacola, Florida

Tucker Carlson / Pensacola, FL
Dear Ms. Lunelle,
As I watched and listen to Tucker Carlson of Fox News interviewing one James Nicols, who proclaimed to be a Professor of Black History, advancing his personal political view as he slandered the name of the Honorable General Jeb Stuart in an attempt to justify having his name removed from a school in Virginia because he fought in an army that fought to keep slavery, I couldn't help but to become angered because Carlson said that he "got it."
The fact is that none of General Lee's men fought to maintain the economic institution of slavery. And that includes Holt Collier, Polk Arnold, Dr. Alexander Darnes, Levi Carnine, Napoleon Nelson, Rev. Mack Lee and a host of other black Confederate soldiers and their families back on the home places that directly supported the integrated Confederate army, and to change the name of a school because he is offended should first require a lie-detector test!
However, it got to be more pathetic as I was made privy to four white girls and two white men and, later on, a black man with a six year old boy and three young black baby girls not to far removed from "Pampers" struggle to carry signs in protest of the Cenotaph of this integrated Southern army in Pensacola, Florida. Save Southern Heritage FL researchers tell me that 75% of the protesters were imported from out of town, and the 'babies' were brought in for show by their grandfather from the Tampa area!
My grandmother used to say all the time "if they would just leave us alone in the South, we will be alright." And, for sure, decent loyal black Southerners don't need white Socialist Party members using black Southerners as their weapon of choice against our Southern white family. We had enough of that during reconstruction, and during the reign of Barack Obama in the White House.
God bless you!

P.S. I hope you will contact Tucker Carlson and let him know that agreeing with changing a school named for Jeb Stuart is wrong and he shouldn't side with those that lie about our Southern heroes. You can reach him here.
