President Donald Trump’s proclamation Friday commemorating Columbus Day set a bold statement with the White House holiday announcement, the President warned about “radical activists” seeking to tarnish the explorer’s legacy.
As many have attempted to rewrite the history of Columbus Day without including the historical context. Columbus was a great explorer but certain journalists and historians have attempted to depict the brave explorer as a barbarian over the years. The fact of the matter is that the truth is a little bit more complex.
While we can argue over the morality of Columbus all day, the fact of the matter is that Columbus is an important part of American history whether we like it or not. Are you tired of the racial divisiveness that is being perpetuated by certain groups in this country?
