We don't have to honor he names of historical racists by calling our streets after them. We can teach history and rename geographic features at the same time.

We are people who live in yet another place that was never ceded by the first people who still live here. Let the streets we walk say so.

Lets rename these streets with Wiyot place names! Why would anyone want to live on a street named after someone who supported genocide.

if what I've read is true, then James Woods committed crimes against humanity and his image and name should be taken off any state, country or city properties

Traces of past inhumane treatment of indigenous peoples must not be erased, but neither should they be celebrated.

The true history of native peoples in Humboldt county must be told. No more glorifying murderers, slaveholders, and rapists.
Not only should Confederate memorials be taken down, but the tribes who originally cared for these lands should be honored.
