Heh, I mean it’s really up to the citizens there, but if you start changing names based upon the character of the person/thing that they are named for, we’re in for a lot of name changes.
The Virginias are named after Queen Elizabeth I (another slave supporter) who imprisoned and executed her own cousin for the crime of being Catholic and not only encouraged torture of Catholics, but actually ordered it.
New York is (probably not, but maybe) named for Ebraucus, a Briton king known for slaughtering Gauls and pillaging their villages.
Maryland is named after Henrietta Maria who had at least two people’s ears cut-off and nose split down the middle for insulting her.
The Carolinas are named for Charles I who imprisoned parliament and essentially became dictator and we all know how that ended.
Maine is likely ultimately named after the Aulerci Cenomani, a Gaulish tribe that likely practiced human sacrifice.
Texas is named after the Caddo who ambushed DeSoto’s expedition (hard to feel too sorry for them though.)
Louisiana is named after Louis XIV who revoked the Edict of Nantes and renewed the persecution of Protestants.
Kansas and Arkansas are named after the Kaw, a Dhegihan tribe that came to settle there after forcibly evicting the Arikara among others.
California ultimately stretches its name back to the Islamic Caliphates and I don’t think we need to get into their atrocities because it could spark a completely different discussion, but suffice it to say they were not saints.
Mexico/New Mexico was named for the Aztec rulers who were notorious for their human sacrifice.
I mean shoot, America itself is named after Amerigo Vespucci who was involved in capturing slaves in the Caribbean.
This is all to say that I don’t have a dog in the Austin fight, but history is complicated and often bloody and filled with atrocities. Sometimes it’s best to just acknowledge the issue and then let it go.
