confederate names and hate symbols no longer reflect the more positive aspirations of our culture.

As a native Floridian and a descendant of 8 confederate soldiers, I think the legacy of my ancestors would not be that of separation or oppression. Its time for us to move forward as a nation and as a people. Rename to reclaim.

Time to stop the memorials to racism, many of which were put up to threaten and terrorize, TAKE 'EM DOWN! Will it end racism? Of course not, but it's a great place to start.

As a former Broward County resident, and proud American, there is no place for these names on our city streets.

Let's heal the pain and come together. It's time. We have other real heroes to honor. Make this part of our history HISTORY!

It's easier to do than move a monument and signs can pay homage elsewhere. Thank you.

Thanks for adding your voice.

There is no need to revere the Confederate by having moments to them or streets or anything else named after them. We need to quit sugar coating our history. Although there were no doubt many good people in the South (and still are), it is good that the Confederate lost the Civil War. Imagine where we would be now as a country. These symbols are negative and they need to go. We have plenty of heroes across all races, genders, etc. to honor. Use those names.

Thanks for adding your voice.

We as a people living in a democracy have to be vigilant and portray history honestly. The Civil war was fought for the preservation of the ideals of the founders of our country. It was devasting on both sides. However, Slavery and the economics of slavery were the main reason for the war. Those that choose to fight to defend it's existence should not be honored. They were men and women of their time but there is absolutely nothing honorable about the institution of slavery. Museums should house the leaders empowered to influence the people regardless of weather they were on the winning side as this knowledge is paramount to understanding our country's history. That being said by naming streets and setting out monuments honoring those who fought for the institution of slavery is antithetical to what our country stands for. Please rename the streets.
