Christopher Columbus: Adventurer. Explorer. Holiday namesake. White guy.
Since 1937, Americans and calendar-makers have hailed the mix of sea adventure and genocide that make up this man’s accomplishments. Despite all manner of protests, we still celebrate that fateful day in 1492 when Columbus “discovered” a body of land already occupied by millions of people and promptly initiated their destruction.
