After more than 80 years in the park in Dallas that bears his name, the city has removed a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.  A city task force will consider the future of other Confederate monuments, but commentator William Holston believes that's not enough to right past wrongs.

Two days after a statue of Robert E. Lee was removed from the Dallas park named after him, a group called the “This Is Texas Freedom Force” held a protest rally at the empty pedestal Saturday morning.
