Change Columbus Day!

Columbus day should be changed to something else.

Columbus was not the hero

Columbus did discover America, and without him we wouldn't be here. But come on lets be realistic becasue of him thousands of natives died brutally; they lost thier people, thier culture and all together thier identity. columbus was not the hero for the naitives he was the villan.

Columbus dosent deserve a day of commemoration

Columbus day should be renamed to something like, "The discovery of America" . Or something else that doesn't commemorate Christopher Columbus. Becasue he was a evil and heartless man
