A petition to rename “Shockoe Bottom” to “ShoLo Bomba”

July 10, 2014 1:16 pm by

Sometime earlier today, someone named “Sho Lo” launched a MoveOn.org petition to rename Shockoe Bottom:

Let’s merge with the 21st Century by renaming the past!

I have been personally affected by the name Shockoe Bottom all my life. It’s so sexually charged and hard to pronounce. Say it a few times really fast. See what I mean? So sexual. So difficult. It’s time to change this. Are you with me, Richmond?!
