History can never be and should never be erased no matter how terrible it may be. However this doesn’t mean that symbols and atrocities of the past should be idolized. I ask you to join me in the removal of the Christopher Columbus statue at the Newburgh ny, waterfront. 

Christopher Columbus who is falsely attributed to the discovery of The Americas is historically known to be a thief, rapist, and murderer of millions of Arawak natives As well as other tribes.

Although things such as imperialism, slavery, and genocide aren’t any living persons fault it is our responsibility to show our intolerance for hate as an example for generations to come.

thank you for your time and support.
