Surely his opinion means something?

Robert E. Lee's great-great grandson OK with Confederate statues coming down - CNN

Quote:
The great-great grandson of Gen. Robert E. Lee condemned last weekend's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia and said it might be "appropriate" for Confederate statues to be exhibited in a museum.

"Eventually, someone is going to have to make a decision, and if that's the local lawmaker, so be it. But we have to be able to have that conversation without all of the hatred and the violence. And if they choose to take those statues down, fine," Robert E. Lee V, 54, of Washington DC, told CNN's Polo Sandoval.
"Maybe it's appropriate to have them in museums or to put them in some sort of historical context in that regard," he added.

His opinion means no more than the opinion of any other American.
