CNN’s Don Lemon recently suggested that our nation’s capitol ought to “reconsider” the Jefferson Memorial, considering the fact that Thomas Jefferson was a slave owner.

Now, a video produced by Nicholas Ballasy shows that some Washington, D.C. residents — in the wake of the shooting at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston and the racial debate it sparked — thinks our nation shouldn’t stop at the Jefferson, but go so far as redesigning the American flag and changing the name of our country’s capitol to “Black City.”
