And yet, thousands of people who have no idea what it feels like to be discriminated against will get butt-hurt over the name of a roller coaster, which is near the top of the list of things that don't matter. And I'm not a roller coaster.

However, if it was a statue of a roller coaster with a confederate name, then it needs to be removed and put in a museum of history so we never forget, but do not glorify what it stands for. ;)

I appreciate that Cedar Fair has chosen this moment in time to make the change. I just think they could do better than Racer 75. Then again, these are the same folks who gave use Drop Tower and Back Lot Coaster.

Same folks that gave us Flight Deck. They like either horribly bland or unpronounceable for everyone, but Scooby Doo.. (see: Rougarou)

It could be worse. They could’ve renamed it Fire Racist Confederate Namesake Hawk.
