San Francisco cancels Washington and Lincoln

CBS reports:

The names of Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and other prominent figures including California Senator Dianne Feinstein will be removed from 44 San Francisco public schools, a move that stirred debate Wednesday on whether the famously liberal city has taken reckoning on America’s racist past too far.

The decision by the San Francisco Board of in a 6-1 vote Tuesday night affects one-third of the city’s schools and came nearly three years after the board started considering the idea. The approved resolution calls for removing names that honored historical figures with direct or broad ties to slavery, oppression, or the “subjugation” of human beings.

They really are out of this world.
