Should Columbus Day be Indigenous Peoples’ Day?
Subscribe to our channel! 0bsAjO
In past decades, Christopher Columbus has gone from unquestioned US hero to problematic figure. For centuries, the destruction and disease he ushered into the Americas have been set aside, allowing the myth of a pioneering sailor who discovered America and proved the world was round to embed itself in US culture. But as this myth has been increasingly confronted with brutal historical facts, things have started to change.
While Columbus still has a national holiday in his honor, complete with parades and celebrations, there are many people fighting to dismantle the myth that surrounds him and choosing to celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day instead.
Watch this video to understand how Columbus became a US icon over time and why his status is in question today.

Anyone else think that looks like George W. Bush at 4:30?
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.

Moral excellence comes about as a result of habit. We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts.
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.
What a disease
