North Carolina's Rev. Robert W. Lee IV - the fourth-great-nephew of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee - appeared on MTV's Video Music Awards Sunday night to encourage an audience of millions to denounce racism.
While demonstrating against a rally of white supremacists and neo-Nazis advocating to protect a statue of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia, on 12 August, a man used a auto to drive into Heather and other protestors.
"Leave here tonight remembering that we must show these Nazi white supremacist jerks in Charlottesville, and all over the country, that. we have zero tolerance for their violence, their hatred, and their discrimination", Jackson urged the crowd.
"My name is Robert Lee IV".
"As a pastor, it is my moral duty to speak out against racism, America's original sin", he stated.

DeShone Kizer will reportedly be named Browns starting QB
The Browns are seemingly going to step in the field with second-rounder drsft pick rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer under center. Folk's second field goal of the game capped off a seven-play, 31-yard drive that took 3:18 off of the third-quarter clock.
"We have made him an idol of white supremacy". Lee also went on to say that Black Lives Matter and Heather Heyer (the woman who lost her life in Charlottesville) are people we should strive to be like in the fight against hatred and injustice.
Lee has been outspoken regarding his support for the removal of his ancestor's statues following the violent events of the white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville earlier this month.
On Sunday's show, which was broadcast live from Inglewood, Calif., Lee introduced Bro, who announced the winners of the Best Fight Against the System award.
Bro took the opportunity to introduce the Heather Heyer Foundation, a nonprofit organization that will raise money for scholarships to students interested in pursuing social justice issues and joining Heyer's fight against racism.
Despite several artist nominations for "Best Fight Against the System" through music, it was later revealed that all five of the nominees won the award in a symbolic gesture of unity. Taking action in her daughter's memory, Bro said, "We are going to do what we can with her foundation to make her death count for something". Big Sean decried violence. Jared Leto and others spoke up about suicide prevention and body shaming. The Hamilton Mixtape and John Legend both took on the targeting of immigrants. Logic and Damien Lemar Hudson celebrated diversity. 'What do you want a 60-year-old woman on your show for?' I didn't realize how many people were paying attention.
