According to the United States Government, today is Columbus Day. Christopher Columbus was allegedly the first European to set foot in the New World. Evidence suggests he was quite cruel to the indigenous inhabitants of the lands he helped conquer.
To the “Native Americans” in the United States, Columbus is a symbol of their eventual defeat by the evil white Europeans. So the solution to this feeling of shame is to get the government that was founded by those evil white Europeans who regularly committed atrocities against them and violated treaties made with them, to recognize a holiday in their honor which will be known as Indigenous Peoples Day.
I wonder if Europeans in Europe can have an Indigenous Peoples Day to commemorate what their cultures were like before Angela Merkel launched her Muslim invasion of 2015. No that would be racist.
