Somebody please tell me there was a confederate soldier named Bob Costas

The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to eliminate Columbus Day from the city calendar, siding with activists who view the explorer as a symbol of genocide for native peoples in North America and elsewhere.

Over the objections of Italian American civic groups, the council made the second Monday in October a day in L.A. to commemorate “indigenous, aboriginal and native people.” It replaces a holiday that served as a touchstone for Italian Americans, marking the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the Caribbean.

Italian Americans voiced anguish over the proposal, telling council members it would erase a portion of their heritage.

In a similr vein as Pyrrho's post...

Minnesotans want to replace a statue of Christopher Columbus with Prince

I say go for it. I am no fan of Prince's music, but he wasn't a murderous bastard like Columbus.

Good for LA.

Columbus was a genocidal maniac. Why anyone would WANT to be represented by him, I have no idea. He pretty much wiped out every tribe he came in contact with. And was proud of that fact. Fuck that guy

He didn't wipe out tribes. Introduced diseases wiped out the Indians. That was going to happen upon first contact no matter who it was or what their intentions were.

And that's a fact.

And frankly the Indians were every bit as bad as Europeans were. Everyone were murderous bastards back then.

WildCat, you are misinformed. Columbus did far more than just accidentally introduce disease. I suggest some reading on the subject. Below is a good primer

Mayor DeBlasio (NYC) announced he wants to get rid of Grant's Tomb.

Not because there is a respectful depiction of Robert E Lee surrendering, or because Grant owned slaves, but because he once said something bad about Jews.

So you see he was literally Hitler. You don't want literal Hitler's tomb in your town do you?

Introduced Diseases wiped out the North American tribes. Columbus and his men personally enslaved, murdered and worked to death the inhabitants of Haiti and other islands where they landed. Disease came later. And he was quite proud of it in his diaries

Fuck that guy still

The problem is that they are playing can-you-top-this with destroying monuments.

Yes it will be burning libraries very soon.

Columbus himself noted how peaceful the natives of Hispaniola were, and how correspingly easy they were to enslave
