Recognize the first nations people that occupied the land before and during the Columbus trip. Stop the lies that have been perpetrated on all of us through history. Give credit to so many Nations that were native to their homelands . And celebrate their history. You cannot claim you found some place that had native occupation for thousands of years . Put a stop to this disgraceful day. Let us begin the healing.

      It is difficult for me to tell my students the truth about Christopher Columbus but still celebrate Columbus Day. Confusing for everyone who knows that he committed terrible acts of cruelty against the masses and was motivated by greed.

      This "man" was butcher and mass murderer, and should not be celebrated ANYWHERE!

      Although many historic figures have a modicum of bad things they represented or committed, Columbus was responsible for an EXCESSIVE amount of terrible, terrible things. Aside from that, it's ludicrous to have him represent the 'discovery' of America.
