A group of Dallas, TX. residents are in the midst of petitioning to change the name of a local park named after Confederate General Robert E. Lee to Erykah Badu Park! Because why not? The Change.org petition argues that now that the statue of Lee has been removed from the park, might as well start from scratch by paying tribute to an artist who uses music to communicate with and touch others in a positive way.

With 1,585 supporters currently, the petition needs 915 more signatures to reach its goal. Turn up.
