After serious consideration and some historical research, I take back my suggestion that the offensively-named Parkside be renamed South Sunset. I now propose that the SUNSET be renamed Parkside because originally the Sunset was called the Parkside.

In the 1890s the area south of Golden Gate Park was just being developed but the area did not have a name. Instead, for several years the real estate companies gave the area their own preferred names, one of which really stood out: PARKSIDE, because it was beside the park.

So let's rename the entire Sunset/Parkside, south of the park, west of the ocean, north of Sloat area the Parkside and get on to more important things.
