Because of all the lies that have been circulated about Christopher Columbus. Nothing was said of the good things he did for the indigenous people, at that time. Everybody must hsve been fighting with each other for power.

Christopher Columbus was the first civil rights activist of the Americas, championing the Tainos' rights against the Spanish hidalgos who sought to enslave them. Columbus was the good guy!

My family immigrated from Italy. You can’t take away our Columbus Day. This is insulting! Put indigenous people’s day on another day!

Columbus was essentially the first European immigrant. By mapping a repeatable route to this hemisphere, and beginning cultural and economic exchange with Europe, he arguably changed mankind forever.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I agree that Columbus Day Holiday must remain as is.
