:lol:

Agreed, whether it turned out well for the indiginous population or not, it is unarguable that the guy had some cajones (Columbus not DeBlasio).

99.9% of the "indigenous peoples" in LA are Mayan and Aztec origin. Maybe they should call it Moctezuma Day.

What is needed are national holidays apportioned according to the census by race.

So MLK day is fine but there would need to be about 5 or 6 "White People's Holiday" and a few more Hispanic holidays..maybe 3 or 4 even...Moctezuma, Pancho Villa Day, Julio Iglesias Day, Selena Day. Indigenous Peoples Day would come up every 3 years. Maui Day every 4 years...then maybe Mao Tse Dung Day, Hirohito's Birthday.

Hard to get any work done but the unions would love it.

We could give Lincoln and Washington their own day's back and then nominate some more. Mickey Mantle Day, Susan B Anthony Day...maybe Al Capone for the Italians. It would be fun.

Well, Chicago has designated a day for the Germans----Baron von Steuben:

And they do a pretty kick ass parade for it:


Of course the parade is held on a Saturday because no hardworking German-American would ever take a day off of work. ;-)

Vandals Target Columbus Statue In Astoria, Queens
August 31, 2017 10:51 PM

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Vandals have hit another Christopher Columbus statue in New York – this time in Astoria, Queens – amid a national debate over controversial monuments.

“Don’t honor genocide” and “take it down” were stenciled on the base of the Columbus statue at Triangle Park.

Some residents told CBS2 they were upset to see the statue vandalized.

“I’m upset, because I live here all my life, and I don’t like seeing the neighborhood being destroyed – our history. What’s next, George Washington and federal hall?” one woman said.

“All the statues should stay up,” a man said. “They put them up for a reason.”

The graffiti comes days after a bust of Columbus was broken off its pedestal in Yonkers.

ADVERTISING

The Columbus monuments in Buffalo and Houston were also recently defaced with red paint. In Baltimore, the oldest Columbus monument in the country as vandalized by an activist who narrated and posted the attack online.

“Observe how vehemently Republican and Democratic ‘misleaders’ defend genocidal terrorists like Christopher Columbus and George Washington,” he can be heard saying on the video.

The NYPD would not say if it’s taking special precautions to protect Columbus Circle, a flashpoint as the city prepares to review monuments and memorials that may cause offense.

CBS2 has been pressing Mayor de Blasio for more information about the Monument Review Commission.

On Tuesday, a spokeswoman would only say that City Hall will release additional information in the coming days.
