Time to rename the Democratic Party

There has been a concerted effort by activists on the left to take down what they perceive as racist symbols of the past, such as Confederate statues, flags, artwork, etc. However, they must also be circumspect as it relates to their own symbolic racist past.

After all, the Democratic Party was the party of slavery, Jim Crow and anti-civil-rights, and nothing symbolizes racism more than that.

Perhaps the Democrats should shed their racist past and re-brand their party name. It should be reflective of their current beliefs. Their party could be renamedt the Socialist Party or the Obstructionists Party or perhaps the Borderless Party. Or simply a combination of the three, the SOB Party, which best represents their current platform.
