As of 2015, there were at least 1,441 federally recognized places in the United States with racial slurs in their names.
Hasan takes a look at some of these streams, rivers, mountains, and other landmarks and discusses the process for changing their names to something less racist. Hasan then travels to a location in New York City with an offensive name and tries to change it once and for all.
