Near Beaumont towards Fannett, there is a road named "Jap Road". Its been named that for decades. It was named for a Japanese rice farmer who lived there. No one ever gave it a second thought until a couple of years ago when someone drove through and was "offended"

Now the ACLU and other civil rights groups are involved. As of this date, it is still called Jap Road.
