No. Go back and re-read what I said. The first part was a general comment about the destruction of our history. History is history. warts and all. This Southerner may be stripped of his honors justifiably, but there is no denying the systematic removal of those who are judged by changing criteria of what is considered honorable (and again, I'm not defending this guy in particular).
Toward the end of your comment you showed signs of getting what I meant. Sometimes the conferring of 'honor' says more about those doing the honoring in the long run than the one who was 'honored'. (Take the recent crop of Nobel Prize winners, for example.)
And then you implied -- not subtly -- that removing this guy's name from the dorm was just the first step in that process.
