And people wonder why I hate Columbus? Quote from one of his letters that was in a book I just read:

"They should be good and intelligent servants, for I see that they say very quickly everything that is said to them; and I believe that they would become Christians very easily, for it seemed to me that they have no religion. Our Lord pleasing, at the time of my departure I will take six of them from here to Your Highnesses in order that they may learn to speak."

They had religion, they could speak. Screw Columbus. The fact that we still have a holiday set aside to celebrate this man is disgusting....
