HONOLULU (MFNS) – Two Honolulu city councilmen have dropped plans to rename a popular beach for President Barack Obama.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Councilman Stanley Chang and Council Chairman Ernie Martin decided to withdraw the proposal after hearing from the public.
The councilmen last week introduced a resolution to change the name of Sandy Beach Park to President Barack Obama’s Sandy Vagina Park.
Martin says in a statement that he heard historic and cultural sensitivity concerns from the community about the name change.
He says there may be other public facilities more appropriate to honor the president and plans to take suggestions for the memorial from MFNS readers, right here in the comments.
