If You Don't Want It in Your Own Neighborhood, Just Say So

An L.A. smoke shop cashier takes the passive-aggressive route to oppose changing the name of a street in his (her?) own neighborhood.

"Changing the name here won't change anything because it's already a black neighborhood[.] Why not take it to Beverly Hills? Why not change Rodeo Drive to Obama Drive? Because it's a white neighborhood? You're changing the street, you're spending the money, might as well change it there."

I wonder how this person would feel about having a street in a black neighborhood named for George W. Bush?
