Uhhhhh, I think what was done to the Native Americans was horrible too. I think that's just a fact. I have Cherokee ancestry and even though it has never had an impact on me, it breaks my heart to think of how some of my ancestors treated the others, ya know?
But... I hardly think Columbus was solely responsible for all that happened. And I also won't go so far as to say I wish he had never came here. America probably would have been more beautiful, that is true. Of course, it probably wouldn't be America, and most of us would not be here. So I can't really go back and say that I wish it hadn't happened.
I didn't realize this was such a hated holiday. I don't think any country has a purely peachy keen history. People don't acquire lands by being nice and caring. Sad but true. The entire world's history has lots and lots of rough spots, obviously.
