I feel that Columbus's expedition is belittled to much, he's still a very significant to history. I am very well aware, as are most people, that others had reached the New World before Columbus, but it was his expedition in particular that kicked off the age of discovery and subsequent colonization of the Americas. Sure, he did some terrible things and his discovery contributed to even more terrible things down the road for the Natives, but looking at history, mankind's story has always been full of bloodshed and tears. I myself am a Mexican-American, but I hold no grudge towards say Cortez, let alone any other dead man from centuries past. Regardless of how we look at Columbus now, there's no mistaking that his *discovery* had a huge impact on the world.

Very true! C. Columbus was a great sailor who had a ship without any modern equipment. Still, he succeed to not only discover USA but also reach several islands and countries.

I am glad the statue was vandalized as it honored an asshole, also destroying a statue does not erase history, it only disrespect parts of it and this was a part of history that deserves to be disrespected
Also he should have pooped on it as well

So you're gonna ignore the Native Americans raping, killing, invading and enslaving other Native Americans before he arrived? Guess by your logic, they got what they deserved.

Instead of tearing down stuff like that, lets tear down this. Lenin and his Bolsheviks were traitors to their Tsar, brutually killing the Tsar and his family slowly, and made a system that ended up killing millions of innocent people later on. Not to mention as a final thing, it's completely dumb to have a statue of someone who made a government who ended being one of the US's biggest rivals and enemies on our own land.

They aren't the topic, nice try btw, nor did it compare to whites wiping out most of their civilization and territory. Sound familiar mr white genocide (lol) And I meant the scalpings and such done over the next years in retribution were richly deserved.

Except that it's on your much esteemed private property. Abolish private property and the government can tear it down.;)

This is why I wasn't really happy when there was the big push to tear down the confederate statues.

yes some of them may have done bad things and been slave owners. But you don't just pretend every bad person in history didn't exist!

Also people need to stop acting like only bad people owned slaves. I mean it was the way things were back then and plenty of good people owned slaves for one reason or another. I'm not saying slavery is a good thing but that doesn't make everyone who was a part of the system bad. Some were just a product of their times.

Also not all confederates were interested in slavery. Another reason that started the civil war, and in many ways was actually the main reason, was the north was where the capital and industry was while the south was where the agriculture and such were. But because the money flows in industry more than farming the south was losing power to the north and this was leading to various political issues.

I won't go into them but the point is the south had more reason to break off than just protecting slavery. Now again this doesn't mean I think the south was right to try to break off. But people are trying to make it a war about slaves and then trying to bury it because even acknowledging slavery was a thing is offensive these days.


the south had the right to secede, just like california does if it tries to today, same with texas,

the only things I don't like are white imperialism, barbarians (like ISIS and the Nazi's) and racists, basically I only hate the uncivilized, its ok to act like a savage towards them because they themselves are savages who don't deserve to be treated in a civilized way so yes I will proudly poop on things that glorify colonialism and genocide
