Me and my cousin are from Turkey and even we were taught that in elemenarty school Social Studies, even though in fact he invaded some Carribean islands which he thought was India, enslaved & murdered people who treated him with nothing but kindness, gave out Native women as ''gifts'' and stole everything he could. He described them as cannibals who drink blood.
One of his friends, Michele de Cuneo, wrote:
“While I was in the boat I captured a very beautiful Carib woman, whom the said Lord Admiral (Columbus) gave to me, and with whom, having taken her into my cabin, she being naked according to their custom, I conceived desire to take pleasure. I wanted to put my desire into execution but she did not want it and treated me with her finger nails in such a manner that I wished I had never begun. But seeing that (to tell you the end of it all), I took a rope and thrashed her well, for which she raised such unheard of screams that you would not have believed your ears. Finally we came to an agreement in such manner that I can tell you that she seemed to have been brought up in a school of harlots.”

Christopher Columbus was a nice man with only three fingers, who discovered America. He had three boats and he was really swell to everybody. An Indian Chief named Bill wrote: "Yeah, I knew Chistopher Columbus very well. He pooped chocolate coins and made us big spaghetti dinners every night. Righteous dude!" Hard to argue with that.1
