I wonder if the Columbus Day protesters think that if not for Columbus, what we call "America" (or "North America") would NOT HAVE BEEN DISCOVERED??!!??  And all this continent's "Indigenous People"  would have been free to kill, enslave and wreak havoc on one another  "in peace" and with no interference from the exploring/developing world?
SOMEONE, SOMETIME would have discovered and settled this continent, with little difference in resulting history. Let's go back to the Vikings and call it "Leif Erickson Day; erect statues to Erikson so that they too can be defaced in the name of "social justice"
Can someone please explain to me why Columbus has become a target?  The man never set foot on the North American Continent!!
