San Francisco Schools President Wants George Washington Removed From School Name

After listening to a sermon about second-string San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protest of the national anthem because of police brutality and racism, the president of San Francisco’s board of education wants to remove George Washington and Thomas Jefferson from the names of all taxpayer-funded schools in the city because the forefathers owned slaves.

The school board president, Matt Haney, wants to rename any school associated with anyone who owned any slaves or who is otherwise a “problematic” deceased white male, reports the San Francisco Examiner.

The school president came up with the notion of rechristening schools named after slave owners and other undesirables on Sunday after he absorbed a sermon at Third Baptist Church.

After the sermon, Haney took to Facebook and called for Washington High’s name to be changed to Maya Angelou High School.

Haney says he will introduce a school board resolution urging schools he believes to be sinfully named to consider name changes.

    Idiots such as this are educating children to their way of thinking. What happened to learning all of history good and bad and letting the child make a decision. Liberals must not be allowed to erase history,

    My next question to Haney: In public schools across the United States, murals of Jesus and the Ten Commandments, as well as the “…under God” phrase from the Pledge of Allegiance, have been removed as offensive and a violation of the separation of church and state. As head of the school board, how do you justify the removal of historical persons names based on what you term “sinful” behavior?
