Why the US celebrates Columbus Day

Vox
Vox

Correction: At 00:32 we incorrectly say that Columbus never set foot on North American soil. Columbus landed in Central America and the Caribbean which are both regions in North America. We meant to say that Columbus never reached the United States. We regret the error.

@Alex, it's not hard to screw up when it is common to use "america" to mean the USA. So your ford truck made in Mexico is "made in America" in the way most people would mean that? i mean think of all of those good high paying jobs in the USA those "made in america" things will cause.

You guys are forgetting how these Indians were acting like douche-bags to Christopher Columbus. So he and his group fought with guns while the Indians had spears. Who would win the rivalry. Columbus also made peace with another group of Indians that didn’t try to kill which something we are never told.

So you blame the massacre of North American natives by first the British Empire and later the USA on Columbus. That makes no sense to me. The king and Queen of Spain declared native people in the Americas to have soul and be treated as humans, that is why unlike north America, latin american natives are the predominant ethnic group in the parts that were colonized by Spain and you find none or little African descents there too, because transport of slaves in Spain was forbid from the very beginning of the colonization. Besides, it is not clear that Columbus was a Genovese. With this video your buying the black legend of the Spanish Empire, lies built by other European nations at that time to criticize the power of the Spanish crown by then and have an excuse to make pirates Lords.

He wasnt even the first European to step on American soil. In his journals he talked about enslaving the Natives. They raped them, killed them and enslaved them. No point in even calling this a holiday, only stupid Americans would celebrate this. Same for thanksgiving, the killings of the Wampanoags, where they decapitated the heads of Natives and encourage to kill Natives insight. America needs to tell the truth about what happened to the Natives. You only hear about what really happened in college courses and not everyone goes to college.

Throughout the centuries of time, every race has been conquered by another, enslaved, raped, murdered, either by their own tribe or another.No person or tribe owns the land that was created by the higher Gods. The true original salve creators were Africans themselves and the Muslim Arab worlds.Yes, Europeans did follow at a later time, but of a fraction of what was original created.Still to this day Africans and Arabs are still being enslaved by their own people.Lets focus on the current facts that have been existing. I would also like to add that Native American tribes were far more gruesome, to their own people, to the crusaders, settlers and pilgrims, then the other way around.White Europeans have flourished throughout the world throughout time, with inventions that we all should be thankful and privileged for. Why is Africa still always a mess?why is the Middle East always a mess? why is it that non white countries are in a constant struggle for the betterment?Why is it that non White people want to come to White European created nations?We all the know the answer, but there are still many who are in denial and ignorant of the real facts.Lastly, columbus never set foot in North America.Do not get it confused, for all the uneducated. Yes, slavery is wrong rightfully disgusting and wrong. In final, STOP BLAMING THE WHITE MAN AND START BLAMING THE TRUE FOUNDERS, YOUR OWN PEOPLE AND YOURSELF.

It is not fair to judge the people from 500 years ago with todays moral sense. The Spanish weren't that terrible in South America as British 'black legend' narrative has tried to portrait. Some Spanish treated badly indigenous people, others treated them right. Some inigenous nations were also cruel to other indigenous people. We shouldn't try to amend the whole history. North Americans tend to forget that their British ancestors almost extiguished the natives, recluding the few that survived into today's reserves. Ask yourselves this: how many natives and mixed-race people are there currently in South America and how many in North America?

If Columbus didn't step a foot in North America then how did he slaughter all those natives. Fact check - Columbus did start a WAR with the natives but it was over food because they were going to starve to death. Then the Spanish left. The British and Irish killed off most natives in north American. As early as 1940s and with legal bounties. That's why you see natives in Mexico and Peru and not in the U.S and Canada. Let's not blame the Spanish anymore. It's ridiculous!
