I read where there is a Derogatory Geographic Names Task Force.

I'm licking my chops if I'm on that committee. Public "guilt" and threat of being termed “racist” for gainsaying will prevent them facing any opposition. Couple this with the Law of the Instrument: When a person discovers a hammer, they also discover that everything needs hammering.

I got out my Rand McNally road atlas and didn't get too far before running into towns which (one wishing to get "points" for virtue signaling) are in for the ax.

I'm offended that so many Indigenous peoples called themselves "the true people." What am I, chopped liver?
