Tell Mayor DeBlasio: Change Columbus Day to Indigenous People's Day

Rename NYC's "Columbus Day" to Indigenous People's Day.

Why is this important?

NYC INDIGENOUS PEOPLE'S DAY CELEBRATION 
THIS Sunday, October 7th, 11am 
Randall's Island Park 
event details: 

History books misrepresent the happenstance encounter as a “discovery”. But, the reality is that Indigenous peoples throughout the Western Hemisphere had long called this land their home. Native people paid for -- and continue to pay for -- this encounter with their labor, land and lives, and the ripple effect, across continents and peoples, is reflected in the devastating history of colonization.

We continue to celebrate and acknowledge the millions of Italian Americans who have contributed immensely to US culture and history.

But, Columbus is not the hero the Italian American community deserves. The great contributions to our city by Italian American community should be represented by someone among the countless Italian Americans who fought to make life better for others.

This day should be recognized as a celebration of the strength and resiliency of indigenous cultures and peoples who survived Columbus. Native peoples are still very much present in the Americas but struggle against being erased from our history then and now.

  I think we celebrate Indigenous people day here in Cali.  Im not sure if it has replaced Columbus day but know I now see it in the calendar as an official day off too celebrate.  So.  They need to change a lot of other days too now that I think about it.  The lie is out.  Everybody knows how this country REALLY got started.  So all the racist statues can come down too while they're at it.   Just sayin.  But!

I think we should all start calling ourselves Turtle Islanders. Christopher Columbus and Amerigo Vespucci were both Italians, weren't they?? Hell, Italy's all over the place. From now on, I'm an African Turtle. Mitch McConnell can be my leader since he looks like he left his shell in the back room with his hood and robe.

I'm "H" the Turtle from somewhere in "Africa" only Heaven knows.

How'd Chris "discover" "America" when people were ALREADY HERE????? Somebody's telling lies again, big time.

One more thing:  Who the hell was Africanus?? Some other white man?? Maybe we should all just call ourselves WHITIE and be done with all this shit!!!

I know that after reading the TRUE and COMPLETE story of Christopher Columbus, the United States of America should be ashamed of celebrating his murderous, psychopathic, sadist, rapist, human 'trafficking' ass.  

Who, but another psychopath, would CELEBRATE a murderous psychopath?

There are far too many sick people in America.  There are far too many mentally deranged people in America's government.  America [and Americans] have allowed the worst of humanity to obtain and hold seats of power. 

Hell, Chistopher Columbus day is not even celebrated in Italy. 

And, really, it is actually also an insult to the Italian people that this murderous psychopath would be the one chosen to mark Italian greatness, when there are so many other great Italians who actually did things to elevate humanity and humanity's evolution without harming, murdering, torturing, raping and enslaving human beings.
