A petition has been launched to have a confederate park named after Erykah Badu. According to The Grio,

Over 2,300 people have signed a petition to have Robert E. Lee Park in Dallas, Texas named after Badu — who is originally from Dallas. Pete Freedman, co-founder of Central Track, explained why Badu deserves the honor, saying,

“Lord knows the renowned R&B singer deserves that distinction. Hell, they already named a whole day after her down in Houston, recognizing her many accomplishments and all that she’s done to inspire young artists around the state, and somehow beating Dallas to that punch.”

Sorry, Dallas.  But we did get y’all.  It’s all love, though!
