An ESPN broadcaster is being taken off an assignment, because his name is Robert Lee.  Lee will not work Virginia's season opener because of recent violence in Charlottesville sparked by the decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.  Lee is of Asian decent, and in no way related to the former Confederate General.  ESPN says the decision to put Lee on another game was made "collectively." It also says it's "a shame that this is even a topic of conversation."
