“I say in relation to the principle that all men are created equal, let it be nearly reached as we can.” – Abraham Lincoln.
Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, is considered by many to be one of the greatest presidents in the history of our great nation.
Perhaps his greatest legacy is saving the union and abolishing slavery. For Lincoln, the two were linked together; “The Union must be preserved in the purity of its principles as well as the integrity of its territorial parts”
But one school in San Francisco disagrees and plans to change their name.
Abraham Lincoln High School is set to change their name because they think the former president is “problematic” and didn’t do enough to prove that “black lives ever mattered” to him.
The San Francisco United School District’s School Names Advisory Committee issued a proposal this week that called for the renaming of dozens of schools because their namesakes weren’t deferential enough to black people, BizPacReview reports.
Members of the committee believe all of the namesakes, including Lincoln, “lived a life so stained with racism, oppression or human rights violations, they do not deserve to have their name on a school building.”
“Uprooting the problematic names and symbols that currently clutter buildings, streets, throughout the city is a worthy endeavor,” committee chairman Jeremiah Jeffries told the San Francisco Chronicle.
“Only good can come from the public being reflective and intentional about the power of our words, names and rhetoric within our public institutions,” he added.
The Chronicle also noted that Jeffries “said the narrative of Lincoln’s legacy is false” and that “the Civil War was not fought over slavery or the liberation of black people.”
“Lincoln, like the presidents before him and most after, did not show through policy or rhetoric that black lives ever mattered to them outside of human capital and as casualties of wealth building,” he said.
Also included in the proposal are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and even Paul Revere.
The proposal falls directly in line with the left’s attempts to essentially eliminate and rewrite American history – based on today’s standards – by renaming football teams, buildings and even removing – or toppling – statues.
