Anderson posted on social media a march would be planned in the neighborhood if residents don’t act.

Anderson later tweeted, “a peaceful march against white supremacy is coming to a neighborhood near you.” He has helped organize several recent protests in light of the death of George Floyd.

At this point, there is a Facebook event hosted by Anderson planned for June 20 at 11 a.m.

In August of 2019, residents voted against changing the name.

    Tay needs to open his eyes. The black lives matter origination is far, far more racist than any white supremacy group in America has ever been! BLM violence far exceeds any KKK combined past actions! Hopefully the school board will take notice of Tay’s violent threats and actions by removing him from the board. His actions have already placed hundreds of children’s lives in danger by having police safeguarding removed from schools. Tay is a prime example of an individual needing a full mental evaluation.

    New name should be Revisionist History Heights.

    Entitled bully!

  4. Paul Frawner says:

    When did Tay move to Stapleton. Mr. Anderson’s statement is not a threat, think again.

  5. Wayland Boyle says:

    Remember majority rules but only if the black community agrees with it. It is OK to disagree but don’t use threats to get your way. That was what happened in Germany in the 1930s & 40s. Look where it got them.
