Mount Kisco is a diverse town, populated with about 10,710 people. It is appalling to see a Christopher Columbus Statue in this town. 
Christopher Columbus has been well known for his numerous acts of violence when arriving to Hispaniola. He is responsible for selling children into sex-slavery, mutilation, slavery, mass genocide, rape, and beheading the indigenous people. Columbus never even laid foot in North America. Leif Eriksson led the first European expedition to North America, 500 years before the birth of Columbus; meaning he didn’t actually discover North America. Christopher Columbus is a tyrant, which is why we need to take down this statue. Instead, we should be celebrating a local character who has done right by their community. In no way does Mt. Kisco represent for the atrocities commited by Columbus, so why should there be a statue in OUR town in his honor?
