This post is in honor of all those who were brutishly murdered by the direct or indirect actions of a man we as a nation choose to remember and celebrate on October 13 when instead it should be a National Day Of Mourning and if our President and government had any compassion they would be asking forgiveness for this day not celebrating it as a national holiday….. take from http://thegipsiewonderer.com/2014/09/03/never-forget/
The real history of Columbus is a story that you most likely didn’t learn about in school. The story of Columbus the slave trader of the Americas, where under his watch, genocide took place, and within 50 years, not a single original native inhabitant could be found on the island of Hispaniola. Wanbli Tate is the Chapter Advisor for Central Texas American Indian Movement and the Elder Advisor for Santa Barbara American Indian Movement, he explains how people are caught up in this myth of Christopher Columbus the hero rather than the man that committed inhuman acts.
