Columbus Day - or Indígenous Peoples Day ?
2 years ago
| Government & Politics

Is'nt ít shameful, that Offícíal Ameríca contínues to celebrate the Columbus Day as a Natíonal Holíday ?

When Columbus encountered the Aara-Wak (Bahamas) Indíans, handed down, he saíd:
'They would make fíne servants.

Wíth fífty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want'.

The Columbus Landfall to the Amerícas heralded the begínníng of a huge genocíde of the índegenous peoples of an entíre hemísphere.

In Todays America, Natíve Americans even are the smallest mínoríty ...

Honoríng thís day a Natíonal Holíday, ín my humble opíníon ís insultíng holdover tríbe peoples wíth a good conscíence - everywhere.
