The descendant of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee did the right thing.
Pastor Robert Lee IV took the stage at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards to share a simple message.
Lee, a descendent of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, was there to introduce Susan Bro, the mother of Charlottesville victim Heather Heyer. On stage, he denounced the use of his ancestor as "an idol of white supremacy, racism, and hate" and claimed it was his "moral duty to speak out against racism."
