    As of 2015, there were at least 1,441 federally recognized places in the United States with racial slurs in their names. Hasan takes a look at some of these streams, rivers, mountains, and other landmarks and discusses the process for changing their names to something less racist. Hasan then travels to a location in New York City with an offensive name and tries to change it once and for all.

You shoul make na episode about the origin of the word "Negro"... you better get some history professors who speak/understand Portuguese and Transatlantic slave trade because it could surprise. The word was not offensive initially.

Didn't the word negro come from the color black ?, therefore is it really racist if there aren't two g's ? But the again, most of these racist names are racist only for Americans, what do i know.

What do you mean racist? It’s not hateful towards anyone unless you make it. Also, minority meaning what exactly? We are in America, you saying white people are not a minority just means they are the power of the us which you really don’t wanna say. Everyone is a minority here.

I agree that geographical names dont need to have racial slurs in them. However by renaming them one should always consider why some of these places carry these names. The "Runaway Slaves Creek" has been renamed to "Freedom Creek", it was used by slaves to escape slavery and run to freedom. So the new name reflects that, while renaming it something like "Sunflower Creek" would have been just sad.

I wanted to tell you guys that in Portuguese Negro means the colour 'black' and I think that negro mountain means black mountain and it has nothing to do with a community. True in Portuguese there's another word for black and that is 'preto'.

Guess what there is a country in the balkans called Montenegro (🇲🇪),actually where I was born, and no one says anything about it. In 'serbo-montenegrian' the country is called Crna Gora which translates, in a way, to black mountain. People need to calm down.

Negro means literally black in Spanish and Portuguese. It's stupid that Hasan call it a "disgusting name". If you are learning Spanis, you will need to use that word a lot, is a fucking colour!, would you ban the word red or yellow or blue?

Negro in Spanish means black. We also have places with names like point blanc which means white point. I understand that in our modern american context it may offensive, when these places were named, it was only referring to a color, not a class of people.

Lack of linguistic knowledge in the USA is really disheartening. The names Negro Mountain and Runaway Negro Creek are not equal in offensiveness. Negro Mountain is offensive, because Americans are not well educated and think foreign words are magic. If you are linguistically aware, Negro Mountain could only be offensive if you thought being black is offensive, because the secret is "negro" means black. Runaway Negro Creek is offensive to everyone, because it indicates that black people should be slaves. There is a huge difference. The really sad thing is that American ignorance helps perpetuate racism. When you say that prefacing sonething with Negro is a "very bad". You are insinuating a word literal describing black is inherently bad, and that is exactly what racist want. White supremacists want you to think black is bad. So become educated, and be proud. Same issue with Hasan's flawed joke that changing Chinaman Lagoon and Oriental Swamp are the same, because Oriental means eastern, so Oriental Swamp is an actual logical geographic name if a swap is to the east of an understood location. Instead of being afraid of words that are mundane or even that truly describe beauty, we should all remember the words that racists use are not important, racist are just barking sounds of hate, which sound like human speech. Don't allow the hate of others to ruin the actual beauty of human language. Also, Horney and horny are not the same... Horney is a surname, horny means having horns, horn-like or sexually aroused, for those with the vocabulary of a 12 year old. Sometimes I really think people are complete idiots...

Hmmm.... I'm not convinced Negro is a racial slur. Sure it's an antiquated term, but I feel like people have gotten pretty casual with their use of the term racial slur. My great grandma (an African-American/Black/Negro woman) used Negro to describe herself and others all her life. I think you'd find most Black ppl over the age of 30 wouldn't be the least bit bothered about these place names. #BiggerFishToFry

Um the word "Negro" . It Isn't racist it's just the word for the actual color black in Spanish. It existed for centries. Before America and the racist names we know today. I get how it may seem racist to non Spanish Americans. But to some like me that use the word all the time (in proper context) of course. I don't think 0n its own, that its a bad word in any way

It's not just cities, lakes, ponds, etc. There needs to be focused energy on changing the names of sports teams, and mascots. Particularly, the professional ones. I'm Native/Indigenous, so you can imagine how I feel about the NFL teams for Kansas City and Washington D.C. And how I feel about the Chicago NHL team, and SEVERAL MLB teams. And those are just the tip of the iceberg, because it gets so much worse when you start looking at college teams... Race/ethnicity, is not a MASCOT, and the way many of these teams choose to depict their mascots, makes it even more disgustingly racist.

Nicolaus Volentius Way more than diseased blankets happened to us, dude. We experienced multiple all out genocides. We fought back when the colonizers killed us, raped our women and children, forced us into slavery; But when we fought back, massacres happened, like Wounded Knee. And in end, many more of us still died, along the Trail of Tears. And the atrocities didn’t end there, because we are still battling with them, to this very day. Standing Rock, was a fucking repeat of Wounded Knee, and that was just a couple of years ago. And even now, they steal away our children and put them in white foster care. They let our missing, stay missing and dead, because we don’t matter to them one bit. And the man currently sitting in the Oval Office, calls us a “plague that needs to be taken care of.”. And yes, the Halloween costumes bother me, because any form of racism BOTHERS ME. Think about how you feel, when you see a white person doing black face.

@Nicolaus Volentius It IS racist, and will always BE racist. I'm the first to say that the Redskins aren't the worst of them out there, but that doesn't matter. All of these were founded and named, by white men, and you know it was done in order to be offensive. What's your race, Nicolaus? Has your race, ever hung up in a store as a Halloween costume? Has your race ever been appropriated by whites, for their own purposes? Were your ancestors butchered, raped, slaughtered to the point of genocide? If you are actually Native, or black, or any other POC out there, and you have in fact been made to suffer at the hands of white supremacy, then I am truly sorry to you, because none of us deserve that. But regardless, I ask you this question. If you removed the name "Redskins", and replaced it with "Blackskined", do you think I would have to yell as hard as I do? Do you think the majority of people, would simply not care, as it is now? No. Why? Because there's far fewer Native people still alive, than there are black people, and no one really cares about us, except our own. So my fight, must first and foremost, be for MY people, and the racial injustices leveled upon us, has gone on far too long.

@Seattle Sheikah Changing that also seems like it should be a societal priority. I just think naming things after people's should not be inherently insulting. We can look at 2 teams: The Redskins: a descriptive term, with native equivalents. Meskwaki- meeshkwinameshkaata Choktaw- Oklahoma The Vikings: People from Northern Europe famous for murder, rape, theft, etc. One of these is clearly horrible, but no one cares. The other is a descriptive term, which is now inappropriate because racists used it. But truthful, it only is derogatory because people think about the hate of racists, which is exactly what the racists would hope for, and in all honesty racists can say the given names of people with just as much hatred. Some concepts are inherently racist, but words are not, so I honestly don't think a descriptive term "red skin" should be offensive just because some assholes said it. Various colors of skin are something to be proud of, and describing them shouldn't be insulting. Though, I will say, I doubt the Redskins have many if any Native people in administrative positions. So, in that case, I would agree it's insult because they are exploiting the image of Native people without benefiting Native people. But even in this case, the term Redskin is not the issue. You could change the name to the Algonquins, O'odham, Cherokees and it would still be insulting because of exploitation. Let's take words back from racists. They deserve no power. They do not deserve our reverence.

Horney is a name, but it sounds like horny, which to immature people can only mean sexual aroused, while it actually means "having horns". So, it needs to change because people are stupid. Then, Racists pronounced Diego as Dago and then said it to ethnic Spaniards, Italians and maybe some others.
