I just can't comprehend where this will end. George Washington owned slaves. Does that mean we need to rename DC? Do we need to remove all the monuments bearing old GW's name and likeness? Exactly what kind of weakness does it take to need to have a street name removed due to "feelings"? Will these pansies get triggered by a word or a statue?


Yes and he was mostly responsible for the decimation of vast tracts of forest...

Is the history gone? Can you still visit museums?
Nope. Not the same.

Then why rename them?


I don't know and I don't care. They are just street names and no matter what you call that strip of concrete it does not change the historical record of that time period.

I am all for not erasing history. Every state building needs to have statues showing oppression and cruelty of the slaves. People in chains. Men and women with lash marks on their backs. Children being ripped from their mother's arms to be sold off to another plantation. Every single state building in America. And we need to have street names like Slavery Row and Black Oppression Blvd and Slave Lynching Ave. So we don't ever forget our history.

Let me know when they bulldoze a statue down here in the U.S.A. Let me know when they remove any mention of any part of our history.

Yep I read the OP.
Who are "they"? SJWs? Who? Our history will not disappear just because some street names *might* be changed.
Anyway I was merely responding to DBCowboy's overdramatic post comparing this to ISIS destroying temples.

They were forced here after being purchased by Americans. Another good idea for a statue though -thanks. Slaves being herded up and forced on ships. Slaves dying of dysentery and dehydration before even making it to America. Good ideas for statues all across the country. Don't forget!

But Marva Harris Small, 58, a black woman who works in the neighborhood near Fort Hamilton, said that whatever good the men might have done while at the base was subsumed by their serving as Confederate generals.

That's a pretty good idea. We need plenty of statues of slaves in chains all over.
