If there was one thing that I learned in school that embedded itself into my memory bank, it was that Christopher Columbus discovered America.
For people who know the truth, the words “Christopher Columbus” mean something totally different.
Yes, Christopher Columbus was a talented mariner, but more importantly, he was a mass murderer, rapist and a father of slave trade. Columbus sought gold and the sheer magnitude of gold on the Native American’s land set into motion a relentless wave of murder, rape, pillaging, and slavery that would forever alter the course of human history.
“They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane. They would make fine servants. With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.”-Christopher Columbus
How can a man continue to be given credit for discovering a land where people were already living?
Today we call the original settlers of America, “Native Americans,” which also means, natives of America, so why are kids still being taught that Columbus discovered America? Why is there still a holiday intended to celebrate a man who raped, stole, and murdered to gain the title of “hero”?
Please consider boycotting the holiday and sharing the truth.
