The Victors’ History

The saying is that the victors write the history books.

I look back and wonder,

What it says that we cannot condemn people like Robert E Lee?

So many years gone,

And men for treason,

For insurrection,

Are honored with statutes,

And black men are killed for jogging.

Who won the battle?
