    Elizabeth Warren has called for the 10 military bases named after Confederate generals to be rechristened - an idea opposed by Donald Trump.  The Democratic senator said it was time to condemn the generals to 'footnotes in our history books' at a moment of 'deep reflection' on racism after the death of George Floyd.  In a speech on the Senate floor, Warren highlighted the sinister past of Confederate generals such as John Brown Gordon, a suspected KKK leader; Henry Benning, a fierce secessionist who feared a 'land in possession of the blacks', and Braxton Bragg, a slaveowner with a poor reputation even on the Confederate side.  Warren also attacked Trump for his opposition to renaming the bases, saying the president...

    LONE PINE, Calif. (AP) — The rethinking of place names in light of U.S. racial history has turned to California’s Alabama Hills, a distinctive high-desert formation named for a Confederate warship. The Alabama Hills National Recreation Area lies east of the Sierra Nevada near the Owens Valley town of Lone Pine, about 175 miles (282 kilometers) north of Los Angeles. The dramatic terrain has been the setting for hundreds of movie productions and lures travelers off nearby U.S. 395.

Now, the nonprofit environmental group Friends of the Inyo wants to change that, the Los Angeles Times...

It would ban chokeholds at the...
    By ANDREW SELSKY, Associated Press SALEM, Ore.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters Tuesday that he was open to renaming military bases named after Confederate leaders - but he didn't want Confederate statues in the Capitol removed.  'If it’s appropriate to take another look at these names, I’m personally OK with that - and I am a descendant of a Confederate veteran myself,' McConnell said, according to Politico. 'What I do think is clearly a bridge too far is this nonsense that we need to airbrush the Capitol and scrub out everybody from years ago who had any connection to slavery.'    Last week, President Trump said he 'will not even consider' renaming military bases and he's historically been against the removal of Confederate statues, hinting at...
