Petition: Change the Name of Jefferson Davis Highway in Arlington

Why on earth do we name anything – roads, schools, whatever – after traitors, racists, etc. in the year 2015 in this country? Crazy. So…how about we rename anything with “Lee” in it “Lincoln,” like Washington-LINCOLN High School instead of Washington-Lee, or LINCOLN Highway not Lee Highway? Or we could name these schools, roads, etc. after any number of great African Americans. But Jefferson Davis and other traitors?  No thanks.
