"Jew" is incorrect?

How about a bit of affirmative action?  Why not call it "Black Pond".  Or am I missing something?

A federal board has approved a New Hampshire town's request to change the name of a fishing spot that's been called Jew Pond since the 1920s.

The Telegraph of Nashua reports the U.S. Board of Geographic Names recently approved the decision by Mont Vernon residents to rename the pond Carleton Pond, after one of the town's founding families.

In supporting the change, Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte had said "pejorative place names" reflecting religious "prejudice" aren't consistent with New Hampshire values of "community and mutual respect."

So the word "Jew" is "pejorative" etc.?  I wonder what Jews should call themselves?  Hebrews?

So how does a pond that was named Spring Pond get renamed Jew Pond in the 1920's? It seems pretty obvious the locals didn't like the jewish businessmen coming into their town and buying the property. This isn't the same as the Black Hills, but more like Nigger Pond. I wouldn't want to live around, or have to refer to a place, as Jew Pond. They should reconfirm the original name as Spring Pond.

They just have to pretend it was a "typo" and it should have been New Pond all along.

It's not the first time history had to be changed to appease one whining jew in the town.
