This thread is full of some of the most juvenile thought processes I have ever seen. We all get it, Columbus was probably not the type you would want
to sit and have a beer with.
However, it was his expeditions that led to the discovery of the Americas. These expeditions led directly to the colonization of said Americas which
include the USA. He did some bad stuff but his expeditions should absolutely be celebrated for what they led to. Manifest Destiny is sad, always has
been, but it's the sole reason you're even on this site right now.
Removal of a statue doesn't seem like much to a juvenile mind, but it leads to the destruction of a culture and a nation that has done many great
things and can do plenty more if not gutted. It doesn't take much to go from statues to a complete loss of the individual.
