A great protest/action passed by my office yesterday, so we decided to put up Black Lives Matter signs in support and set up a table to hand out water to the marchers. It was really great. And I love the irony of a Jewish organization supporting a BLM march on a street named for a Nazi sympathizer (Lindbergh Blvd., which is, aside from the freeways, the main thoroughfare in St. Louis County - I think it's past time to start thinking of renaming this street). It was a great show of community coming together.

That's awesome.

Also, how the hell did Lindbergh get a street?

There are a lot of streets that need renaming.
In NZ it will be a real problem as just about every town has the same street names that are offensive especially to Maori including Cook / Banks etc.. They took down the statue of Hamilton in Hamilton before it was pulled down but the city is still called Hamilton!!

He's still considered a hero here. I don't think most people either know about his Nazi support or they just don't care.

That and maybe the kidnapping. But never his politics.

That is one ‘sport’ that has come a ridiculously long way those guys were rubbish including Evel Knievel. You see kids on skateboards doing better things nowadays.
