Christopher Columbus was NOT a VERY GREAT MAN! Christopher Columbus was a greed-filled, contemptuous, murderer…responsible for the death of millions of indigenous people. A prior slave-trader in Africa he established the slave-trade in the Americas as well as a philosophy of domination…domination of people, culture, and the environment that continues today.
When Columbus failed at his quest to find a trade route to Asia he landed in America where he spread “the word of GOD” through rape, pillage, murder, enslavement, and unspeakable brutality. Within a single generation of Columbus’s landing…an entire group of people and their culture became extinct.
Columbus was not responsible for discovering a land, but for destroying it.
