i wanted to post this yesterday but was too busy making sandwiches for the man.
basically the message is this: the united states as a colonialist power still thrives today. and the celebration of columbus and his "discovery" of america is just another testament to that fact. more evidence you ask? well puerto rico and iraq are the first that come to mind, but there are many more, past and present, that have been piling up since the first white men came to this land.
don't forget the truth - be an advocate for people's history. boycott columbus day in any way you can.
for more information check out http://www.transformcolumbusday.com/. this organization motivated a major protest in denver during the columbus day parade yesterday. about 80 were arrested. are you surprised?
