Goodbye, Old Dixie. Hello, President Barack Obama.Here is a news segment from NBC5/WPTV's Tory Dunnan on this topic:
The city of Riviera Beach in Florida has begun replacing Old Dixie Highway signs with ones honoring the nation’s first black president.
Many black Americans have little love for the term “Dixie,” a reference to the slave-holding South. Obama, on the other hand, is revered by most black Americans.
Riviera Beach Mayor Thomas Masters pushed for the street sign change from Old Dixie to Obama, and his colleagues on the City Council agreed.
