This kinda freaked me out. Saw this article a couple of weeks ago on Columbus. Now I’ve never given much thought to the Columbus Day holiday as it isn’t a day off at work for me. I knew of it and thought it seemed like a holiday fraught with some negative aspects, given the history but. Yikes. I didn’t know the half of it (and I bet I am not the only one). Slavery, repression, millions dead, and the guy kept a diary of it? That’s just disturbing. It is strange that it remains a holiday, cutesified and even venerated. Add my voice to the chorus who think replacement is in order.
