7. When will we celebrate the first people on...

The American continents?
The Native Americans who came here 12,000 years ago?

Not to take anything away from Erik, mind you. And I agree that perpetuating the myth that Christopher Columbus was the first person to discover the American continent is ridiculous.

Oh yeah, I forgot: ONLY people of white European descent are the only people that matter when "discovering" anything?

Native Americans discovered these continents first. They weren't just some critters living here.

The whole country should abolish Columbus Day and celebrate

*** "Native Americans Day." ***

(Easier to remember than "Indigenous Peoples Day." )
