(Breitbart) The NAACP in Lee County, Florida wants to picket the county over a portrait of General Robert E. Lee that hangs in the commission chambers because they deem displaying Lee’s image to be racist.

“It’s a symbol of racism and division,” Lee County NAACP President James Muwakkil said.

According to Fox 4, “Muwakkil sent a letter to Lee County commissioners in early July, asking them to take down the portrait, but they voted to keep it up.”
