Jesus Puente started this petition to 2nd District Alderperson of Kenosha, WI BILL SIEL and

Continuing to have a statue of Christopher Columbus in our city today just doesn't make sense.

We've had all been taught in school how he was actually a fraud who never discovered America, but most importantly, how he treated the natives. The city of Kenosha should not celebrate a man who was known for pillaging, raping, and enslaving the native islanders of Hispaniola.

Now that we know who this man was and what he was really like, we should not continue to praise him for something he never accomplished. Christopher Columbus was evil and we should stop praising him as a hero by removing that statue in Harbor Park. Continuing to keep the statue sends the wrong message to our residents and those who visit our city. No longer shall we glorify this man.

So, I ask you now to sign this petition so that we can let Mayor of Kenosha, John Antaramian, and 2nd District Alderperson, Bill Siel know how we feel about this statue and what it actually stands for. I would like to instead have a statue dedicated to the Potawatomi Tribe put up in its place. The Potawatomi Tribe has more to do with Kenosha than Christopher Columbus ever did. (Please read my first update, I go more in-depth about it there) 

Let's keep Kenosha progressive!
