#1 I am eagerly awaiting for the current crop of radical US Bolsheviks to pounce upon the namesake for the city and state of New York, the former Duke of York who later became James II, last Catholic king of England. From Wiki:
The Royal African Company (RAC) was an English mercantile (trading) company set up in 1660 by the royal Stuart family and City of London merchants to trade along the west coast of Africa.[1] It was led by the Duke of York, who was the brother of Charles II and later took the throne as James II. It shipped more African slaves to the Americas than any other company in the history of the Atlantic slave trade.

I invite proposals for a politically correct new name for the city and state.
