Single parent homes that are dysfunction are a problem. Changing a school's name is not a problem to me automatically. In this particular case, this isn't a problem. You bring up something that has nothing to do with the subject because you didn't like what I had to say.
How about teaching the children and parents about accountability and respect? Tell them to get the academic performance up to the standards of the state average and the we will discuss allowing them to choose the name for the schools. Because the people who built and paid for this school were a lot smarter and harder working and they named this school.

Too much reality for those parents you think?

Then you should have no problem that the name stayed the same.

Well, I'm not raising a fit about the name being changed. But there are people on this thread who are.

I mean time passes and all we focus on is slave ownership? THAT IS STUPID??? He wanted to own a plantation from when he was a kid. That is like me wanting to be an animator because I watched cartoons all day long. He eventually wanted to enter into politics and saw that dream as a fault.
Out of all the current and former POTUS, Lincoln is the one that I have heard/seen the fewest/least amount "Lincoln is evil" or "I hate Lincoln because"-type statements about. If we go buy what you said, we might as well remove the names of all POTUS from 150+ years ago that buildings were named after.

agreed. Will the Democrats stand up for their beliefs and propose changing the name of our Capitol city?

I hope the normal people will fight it. Most liberals don't like this dumb pc stuff either. Find ONE human being who is perfect. Because you can't, so it looks like we can never name anything after anybody.

Amerigo Vespucci--blue eyes, lol? Wasn't he Italian? blue eyed devil?

Are you saying Italians (or Southern Europeans) couldn't possibly have blue eyes?


You ever seen Mario Batalli or Tyler Florence (among SOOO many other)?


Vespucci is a VERY Anglo looking phenotype if you see paintings/pictures of him.

The Left is just trying to drive sane/normal America absolutely MAD with all this garbage they keep shoving down our throats. Eventually we are not going to stand for it anymore.
