Atlanta announced plans to change the name of several streets honoring the Confederacy, noting that “the imagery and symbolism of these names [...] represent systematic injustice, persecution and cruelty. That is not who we are as a city.” What do you think?

“There are so many contemporary white nationalists we could name these streets after, anyway.”

“But if we erase this important part of history, we might forget to continue subjugating black people in today’s world.”

“I feel like this is something that could easily be solved by putting ‘bad’ before every name.”
