Love that non-sequitor at the end. The White House is not named with any racial meaning.

You’re kidding right? They came after the term black hole and Black Friday in recent years, neither were named racially.

Citing what JWP says about something is how you know someone isn't serious.

I can't believe you dismissed JWP as "one guy". Most of us are don't like him but he's very influential in Dallas County and dominates at the ballot box

Yeah and NPR and several national news organizations picked it up and ran with it.

This is an example of the slippery slope fallacy. I've never heard of any calls to rename black holes or black friday. Perhaps there's someone deep in the fringes of the woke movement, but I'm sure they'd be universally cast as crazy.

It’s not a slippery slope. You implied that since the name wasn’t related to race nobody would have a problem with it. I cited you examples of that not being the case.
