The state quietly moved to correct the problem. While it can’t rename local roads and water bodies, the agency is finally scrubbing the n-word from its regulations.
The Wall Street Journal Reports:
Despite the effort to purge the n-word from New York’s official documents, the epithet showed up in a recent management plan report by the agency’s division of lands and forests.
An offensively named road in the town of Danby in Tompkins County is cited in a report posted online in February. The agency was unaware of that until a reporter brought it to its attention on Thursday.
