Denver neighborhood may change name from ‘Swastika Acres’

A neighborhood in Denver, Colorado may change its name from “Swastika Acres,” reports local TV station CBS4.

The neighborhood name is more than a century old and in an area called Cherry Hills Village. Before being appropriated by the Nazi party in Germany, the swastika was a symbol of good luck.

An ordinance would allow a change to the area with 50 homes “but no swastikas.”

Moreover, "While whites who identify as Christians still represent about two-thirds of all Republicans, they now compose only one-fourth of Democrats, according to results provided by the Pew Research Center from a new study it released last week."
