When did this happen? Why is it now politically incorrect to celebrate Columbus? Is this a similar problem to tearing down statues of Confederate soldiers?

They changed it to "Indigenous People's Day". Much more PC and everybody gets a day to virtue signal to their heart's desire.

He was an a**hole, but not what they make him out to be. The guy didn't even discover America, but gets all the credit.

It's Columbus Day today.

?? Maybe "they" are anti semetic! I read he was Jewish!

In school, we are taught that society tends to view people from their own historical lens rather than through the lens of the historical figures. We are not taught that he was a bad guy. We are not taught that he was the first to discover America. We are taught that his voyages helped open up valuable trade routes.

I'd say that's true with everything! It'll be interesting how history is written about Pres. Trump-

The vikings beat him by about 500 years.
