Blackboy Road in Exeter is named after King Charles II. Charles had a darker complexion, different height and features from those around him which led to him being known as "Black boy". I think the fact this hasn't been changed already is insensitive and ignorant so having just moved into the area and learned the history behind the name, I want to see it changed.

It's 2020 and we still have a road named after a racist nickname given to one of our monarchs.

Please get behind this by signing the petition and sharing with as many people as you can.

Thank you.
