Town renames ‘racist’ Old Dixie Hwy after someone ‘more unifying’ – guess who?

The whitewashing of American history continues in earnest in the age of Obama.

In the aftermath of all the trumped-up controversy over the Confederate flag, the town of Riviera Beach, Florida, has taken political correctness to a whole other level in a decision to rename the section of Old Dixie Highway that runs through the town.

The new name? … President Barack Obama Highway.

Seven years into Obama’s run as perhaps the worst president in American history, town leaders have decided it’s time to “help move the community past its segregated history,” the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Riviera Beach is a predominantly African American city with a black mayor.

“We are stepping up to a new day, a new era, and replacing Old Dixie with Barack Obama, who represents change,” Mayor Thomas Masters told WPEC-Ch. 12.


And social justice warriors couldn’t be more thrilled.

“The name Old Dixie does not align in any way with the goal of racial and social equality,” local Kendra Williams said, according to the Sun-Sentinel. “Let’s just move forward and move on, because it’s time.”

An added benefit, according to city officials, is that President Barack Obama Hwy will intersect with a road named after the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. — reportedly the first such occurrence.

The only question that remains, according to one social media user, is whether the stretch of road will now be a one-way street. Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
