It’s always delicious when political correctness turns around a bits its purveyors in the rump.
According to Fox News:
“Thomas Jefferson Middle School, located in Waukegan, Illinois, will officially undergo a name change as the founding father’s legacy as a slave owner continues to stir controversy.
“The school will now be renamed John Lewis Middle School, in honor of the late civil rights icon and former Democratic congressman of Georgia.
“The proposal to use the Obamas’ name sparked backlash among a group of Latino activists last month, who argued that the school board should be more conscious about the message it’s sending to immigrant families in the community given the Obama administration’s track record on deportations.
“Three million people were deported during Obama’s eight years in office. A Washington Post report in 2019 found that Obama deported far more in the first three years in office than did President Trump. The Obama administration deported 1.18 million people in three years, and under Trump, about 800,000 were deported in the first three years.”
