Rename "Columbus Day"
Why columbus shouldnt be remembered.
Many people didnt know that Christopher Columbus and his men enslaved native americans, forced them to convert to Christianity, and killed and threatend them with violence in an effort to seek riches. That is why Columbus Day should be renamed. We cannot let Christopher Columbus be honored! Instead he should be ridiculed and exposed for the crimes to humanity he has commited.

We need to change the name of Columbus Day to Discovering of the Americas Day!
Columbus' First Thoughts on The Natives
"They should be good servants .... I, our Lord being pleased, will take hence, at the time of my departure, six natives for your Highnesses."Columbus wrote in his journal the first day he encountered the native Americans. When Columbus returned to Spain, these captives were paraded through the streets of Barcelona and Seville.
