San Francisco Identifies 44 Schools Named After “Racists” Jefferson, Lincoln, Washington for Leftist Renaming

A Post-American city.

The naming commission of the San Francisco United School District has identified 44 schools named after historical American figures it has deemed “racist,” suggesting that they be renamed.

No, these schools are not named after Confederate leaders. Some of the schools identified as problematic by the San Francisco School Names Advisory Committee include Abraham Lincoln High School, George Washington High School, Roosevelt Middle School, and Jefferson Elementary.

Criteria for identifying problematic names sought to identify schools named after “anyone directly involved in the colonization of people, those connected to any human rights or environmental abuses, slave owners or participants in enslavement, and known racists and/or white supremacists and/or espoused racist beliefs.

Schools named after other historical Americans were referred for cultural cleansing for seemingly bizarre reasons. A school named after inventor and scientist Thomas Edison was placed on the list for Edison’s euthanization of animals.

The San Francisco United School District will vote on the renaming of the schools in January or February, and Board President Mark Sanchez is suggesting a vote in favor of cultural cleansing in likely. The 44 schools identified as problematic are being asked to decide upon new names before the board’s vote.

I don’t think there is ever going to be a time when people are ready for this,” Sanchez said of the renaming. “Predictably people are going to be upset no matter when we do this.

Even a school named after California Senator Dianne Feinstein is being considered for renaming, with school officials citing an incident in which Feinstein replaced a vandalized Confederate flag as San Francisco mayor in the 1980’s.

Perhaps if San Francisco’s municipal government believes that iconography of America’s most historic men is inappropriate and too shameful to display in public, the city’s leaders should consider proposals to declare independence from the United States, possibly within a broader Calexit movement.

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”

There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.

Published

on

The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”

“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.

Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.

The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.

Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”

Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.

Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
