Jay C. Ford, who is the Virginia Voices Outreach Coordinator for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation has started a GoFundMe site as way to thwart the Town of Parksley. The town in in the process of selling their confederate statue and the land it stands upon to the Sons of the Confederate Veterans for $1.
Oddly, Mr. Ford, who has ties to Governor Northam did not have a problem when the old school in Cape Charles was sold for $10 as a way to keep African Americans away by dismantling the basketball courts.
Ford would like to buy the land to ensure the statue is removed.
If Parksley rejects the offer, the money will go to the Black Lives Matter group.
