Let’s face it: Christopher Columbus was a monster

Across the country people are also celebrating Indigenous Peoples’ Day, with Seattle Mayor Ed Murray signing the holiday into law Monday. The predictable cries of “going too far in terms of political correctness” are being heard, especially from the Italian-American community in Seattle. They are upset not because Columbus Day is being cancelled, (it isn’t) they are upset because Indigenous Peoples’ Day and Columbus Day are happening on the same date.
