As we all know, Christopher Columbus Day is a lie packed with propaganda and historical inaccuracies. The holiday acknowledged when Columbus arrived in the Americas in 1492. In truth, it was the start of the mass genocide of  indigenous peoples.

For the first time ever, Columbus, Ohio, the city named after Christopher Columbus, will not observe the federal holiday with its original name. According to USA Today, “City offices are instead scheduled to close on Veterans Day in November, through a spokesperson for the mayor’s office.”

Of course our racist president didn’t even acknowledge Native Americans when a proclamation was issued on Saturday, instead he focused on Italian Americans, saying, “As we celebrate the tremendous strides our Nation has made since his arrival, we acknowledge the important contributions of Italian Americans to our country’s culture, business, and civic life.”

We certainly aren’t celebrating Christopher Columbus. Check out our list of Christopher we do acknowledge.
