    Denver Newsroom, Oct 22, 2020 / 03:01 pm MT (CNA).- A San Francisco public school district committee this month recommended that 44 schools with “inappropriate” names be renamed, with Junipero Serra Elementary School near the top of the list.

    The district’s superintendent appointed the School Names Advisory Committee in 2018 to assess which schools, if any, ought to be renamed.

    Among the committee’s recommendations for schools that ought to change their names were schools named for George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Rooselvelt, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Muir, and Francis Scott Key.

    St. Junipero Serra, an 18th-century Franciscan priest and missionary, has been criticized by some activists as a symbol of colonialism and of the abuses that many Native Americans suffered after contact with Europeans. However, historians say Serra protested abuses and sought to fight colonial oppression.

    The city of San Francisco is no longer appropriately named and should be renamed to Sodom.

    Istanbul, not Constantinople. (Or, Ho Chi Minh City, not Saigon.)

    Don't forget Los Angeles and San Diego. Maybe they should name them "Mega City One", "Mega City Two", and "Mega City Three", like in the old Judge Dredd comics.
