Is Columbus Day a racist holiday?
Originally, I asked Why shouldn't we banish Columbus Day?
Since history books are now portraying Columbus more realistically as less a hero and more as a plunderer of Indian land, what purpose does the holiday serve other than to negate the Indians who were there before him? Please give me a SOLID argument based on facts. If I'm wrong anywhere, you're welcome to correct me.
I think the whold idea is wrong,columbus did not discover america i read there was others before him A lot of history have been claim by some that never made it happen.
I think Columbus Day is a racist holiday, for sure. I think its akin to having a Hitler Day, maybe worse. There are many Jewish people left. There are no Tainos. See my hub "Should Columbus Day Be Eliminated or Changed."
