    Correction: At 00:32 we incorrectly say that Columbus never set foot on North American soil. Columbus landed in Central America and the Caribbean which are both regions in North America. We meant to say that Columbus never reached the United States. We regret the error.

    I'm 16 and even throughout my lifetime Columbus Day was pretty much just a footnote, or an inconvenience since you couldn't mail anything, and (for me at least) it wasn't even a day off school

    Your narrative is misleading, there are so many facts you omitted because is convenient to your narrative, get educated and by the way us is not the only country with monuments of Columbus Colombia 🇨🇴 is name this way to honored Christopher Columbus which in Spanish we call Cristóbal Colón, Costa Rica's currency is the Colón to honored Columbus as well and I can assure there are thousands of monuments of him in Hispanic America not Latin America (de facto name).

    Killing people, stealing their land, amid chaos and celebrate as a hero? American Idol indeed.

    Columbus is the reason why we came to the Americas he's the first European to discover this continent. Therefore, people need to stop getting mad for no reason over this fact. So what Native Americans died, it always been the Survivor the fittest. These Native Americans used to conquer each other. Now people want an Indian day then they should make another day for Indians but leave Columbus alone. There's nothing wrong about him.

    If you try to celebrate Columbus in South America, you're going to be beaten. We are far too aware of what he (as a symbol, not a person) caused.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Columbus killed indigenous people,
    with small pox and the flu
    ....
    But hey!
    He mapped the Bermuda triangle!
    And I geuss that wasn't so blue...
    Oh wait, it was
    Both literally and figuratively,
    I've misconstrewed,
    The ocean is blue,
    And his maps were really not true,
    He thought he mapped the Indies,
    But hadn't a single clue.

    I'm surprised the founding fathers chose Columbus over Amerigo Vespucci (i.e. the guy that the name America is based on).

    What's worse? "Columbus Day"? Or if I mention the cleaning product "Spic and Span"? The reaction is enough to consider the association a "race is involved somehow" joke. What's worse? And should Spin and Span be removed either by public action through law or consumer boycott?

    The vikings and another italian, John Cabot opened America for english-speaking people.

  • vinci vedi vici lex talionas

    The Vikings beat him by almost half a millennium. They did not know it was North America, but neither did Columbus hence Indians (India). There is also evidence that the Scandinavians inhabited Greenland until the 14th century. The Vikings that landed there had a name for the natives. "Skralings" which roughly translates into "little ugly people" lol. I learned this stuff from college and I just thought I would share it.
