The common argument is that he killed the natives.

Because Native Americans say that since Columbus was a murderer, he doesn't deserve a national holiday named after him.
He was also a great explorer.You have to remember. That at the end of the day. The USA is a white country, being destroyed by it's moronic immigration policies.This leads to people asking questions about famous European people. Because they weren't always the best friends of other groups, for several reasons.
“America is a white country” oh the irony and the ignorance.
No irony or ignorance here girl.
No you are correct. I am not calling you ignorant, just the idea that we have people in a country that calls itself “white” and kicks other people out when it was founded as a way to enjoy freedom from religious persecution.
The country was founded as a country for Europeans.The early colonies were for the ones escaping religious persecution. But they were all white Europeans aswell..
But Columbus NEVER set foot in the U. S. He led the first European expeditions to the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. Do you not know the difference between Haiti and the U. S? He didn't create the U. S. nor set foot in it. He found a route to the Americas. With an "s."
He found the route to the Americas. Which led to the founding of America many years later.There is no other more important person you could have on a statue. Except the founding fathers.
"The country was founded as a country for Europeans." But the U. S. have limited immigrants from Europe before. There was the Emergency Quota Act in 1921 to restrict East EUROPEAN immigrants.
Yeah. But there was always a focus on European immigration.The destruction of the US began in 1965. New immigration act targeting everyone who's not white and their mothers.
Well it didn't seem like it mattered before so why bother changing it now
