Columbus was an asshole. he gave 9 and 10 year old girls to his subordinates, for sex. he mutilated Natives, by chopping off their hands, and making the Natives wear them around their necks, as a warning to others who failed to bring him gold. he sliced off Native ears and noses to terrorize the rest.
even if we say what we mean, and label him the first Caucasian to discover America, we are wrong. the Vikings had him beat by almost 500 years. they discovered "Vinland," and their settlements have been discovered in Newfoundland.
in my opinion, America was discovered by Siberian nomads around 50, 000 years ago. I wish to change the name of Columbus Blvd. to Onek, the Seal-Hunter Blvd.
why is it that nothing is "discovered" until a Caucasian sets eyes on it?
