Check this out: Seattle Doesn’t Want Columbus Day

Wow, this is my first time hearing some truths about who Christopher Columbus really was and the havoc he wreaked in the Caribbean. Thanks U.S. public education.

Apparently he killed possibly millions of indigenous Taino on the island of now Haiti and the Dominican Republic. That group is now completely extinct. The article below doesn’t go into good detail on why we really started celebrating Columbus Day nationwide, only to say that a couple of Italian-Americans were behind the lobbying to make it a national holiday. But let’s wise up and really think about why we are celebrating a dictator who may be known as a great seafarer, but who also destroyed indigenous colonies all over the Americas.

Seattle Wants to Kill Columbus Day.
