Division Avenue does not bother me. I've lived 36 years in Orlando & I just learned last week from a black woman why it was named that way. There's a Division Avenue in many cities across the USA. The GPS's would get confused. Let's be glad "We the People" have overcome, even having an actual Black African in the White House. If you continue to hold grudges from events of long ago, you can never move on ahead in your life. Free yourselves of emotional ties to desisional events of the past. Most of those people are dead & you're letting them mess with your hearts & minds.
