There are two holidays in the US, which are based on myths and genocidal suffering of a very large population of humanity: Thanksgiving and Columbus Day. Columbus was anything but a normal human. If you look at what he did to the unsuspecting people he encountered on the land here, you are aghast at how low a human being he was. To celebrate him is not only to offend the “Native Americans” but all Americans who can think and have a human heart.
As one from India, am I thankful that this beast never made it to the “real” India!! Unfortunately, for the millions here on these lands who perished at the hands of the Europeans.
