Inappropriate & racist labeling

Can someone please explain why labeling Brooklyn as Rich White People Town is appropriate for a weather application? I would attach the snip I took if I could.

I saw this as well. The street view maps doesn't label it that way. And if windy.com is ok with racist labeling because it was pulled from another site, that's also concerning.
Please see the following posts about how the map data for Windy is sourced and displayed from www.openstreetmap.org:
Please also note: For every language, a different place name label can be displayed, so please choose your correct language and data display.
Further discussion of place name and language issues or disputes should be directed to the OpenStreetMap Forum here: https://forum.openstreetmap.org/index.php > scroll down & select > users: (the relevant country for your dispute and/or question)
In the case of a political dispute please leave such topics out of the Windy forum and instead focus on the discussion of weather.
Thank you :)
