Columbus Day

And one more post because I was in class all day and now I’m firing them off fast before mother duties kick in.

We are learning about Christopher Columbus in class, and of course, the question arises of why we celebrate Columbus Day if Columbus was such a dick. Which he totally was.

My answer is that it’s not Columbus we celebrate but our existence. If he hadn’t gone on his voyages, we wouldn’t exist. I mean, I probably would and so would the student from Bulgaria. But everybody else in the classroom wouldn’t.

One thought on “Columbus Day”

  1. “If he hadn’t gone on his voyages, we wouldn’t exist”

    I absolutely wouldn’t so I’m not going to go too hard on him (despite many and obvious sins). The most progressive leftist thing possible is to suggest that it would be better to not exist but I’m not anywhere near that left or progressive so viva Columbus (the total bastard)!
