    Correction: At 00:32 we incorrectly say that Columbus never set foot on North American soil. Columbus landed in Central America and the Caribbean which are both regions in North America. We meant to say that Columbus never reached the United States. We regret the error.

    I'm surprised the founding fathers chose Columbus over Amerigo Vespucci (i.e. the guy that the name America is based on).

    What's worse? "Columbus Day"? Or if I mention the cleaning product "Spic and Span"? The reaction is enough to consider the association a "race is involved somehow" joke. What's worse? And should Spin and Span be removed either by public action through law or consumer boycott?

    The vikings and another italian, John Cabot opened America for english-speaking people.

    The Vikings beat him by almost half a millennium. They did not know it was North America, but neither did Columbus hence Indians (India). There is also evidence that the Scandinavians inhabited Greenland until the 14th century. The Vikings that landed there had a name for the natives. "Skralings" which roughly translates into "little ugly people" lol. I learned this stuff from college and I just thought I would share it.

    I was taught in Central America to hate the Spanish. Then I grew up, grew a beard, realized I was 100 percent Spanish because of my Spanish beard and other evidence, and learned more about my past, seeing how glorious it was. Columbus was a devil worshiper Knight Templar whose ships La Niña, La Pinta y La Santa María displayed, if ubiquitous illustrations are based on the truth, the Templar cross showing their mission was to establish masonry in other lands, not so much Catholicism which also uses the Templar cross because the Templars aka elite so-called "free"masons who call themselves "ILLUMINATI" also control Catholicism which is idolatrous making Mary a goddess in effect.

    Everyone who says they are against slavery is a hypocrite when they are silent about terrorist Muslims made prisoners of war. Captives are slaves.

    The Spanish were in a global war against Islam. If Spain did not conquer what it did, Muslims like the Turks may have gotten there first. Spain was not going to sit idly by and let Islam grow in strength making the Reconquista pointless. Spain improved the civilization of the Natives who were in some cases cannibals or sacrificed humans. Spain taught of racial equality, that all come from Adam. The Spanish mingled with the Natives unlike the British norm. Spain defended the Philippines from Muslim invaders from Brunei and elsewhere. Filipinos would be bowing to Mecca five times a day if not for my people who improved their civilization, united them and gave them chocolate from Aztec lands conquered. Except for some bad apples among the Spanish who deserved torture and death, the Spanish did not kill Natives unless the Natives were hostile to the agents of improved civilization and protection from Islam or human sacrificers or what have you. Ironically, if Muslims took over Spain, land of my ancestors, and executed the libtards in the government and their libtarded army who disgrace Spain, I would be glad to see justice there.

    So basically a few hundred of conquistadors conquered lands of millions with their own hands. No help from the native tribes at all. Damn, these spaniards were super humans? Come on... Do not insult the intelligence. They were IN CONSTANT fightings. Aztec/Inca Empires were subduing the surrounding tribes, which was used by the spanish as an advantage.

    Guys, you are decontextualizing stuff, you shoud study more history, really. Columbus has done nothing wrong in the eyes of a man of his time. You are the ones that are judging a man using your own modern values. Every civilization had slaves, Aztecs had them, it was normal. The word "slave" came from "slav", becouse slavs were common slaves in medieval time, and they were white, but it was not important at the time. When ancient greeks conquered another greek city, they could decide to kill all males and sell every one else like slaves, so, i guess, now we have problems with columns...

    Possibly because not many people know that Saint Brendan (allegedly) discovered America long before Columbus, but then just went right back to Ireland and left it at that. Brendan was possibly fond of tall tales, however.
