Columbus Day Meme

Columbus Day Meme: Undoubtedly, learning the full story of Christopher Columbus was one of the most shocking and upsetting moments of your adult life. A hero of every elementary school textbook hails him as the man who discovered America, because he led the crew of the Ni*a, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria to risk their lives at sea so that we could have a home here today. History and facts, though, are more important. In short, Columbus and his men found inhabited land, instigated mass genocides, and then returned to Europe with the fame and glory of having discovered a new world.

Throughout most of our lives, we never questioned why Columbus had a federal holiday named after him. This was the guy who discovered that the Earth is round! What an amazing discovery! During the course of Columbus’ life, our textbooks did not inform us that the explorers did not make any discoveries. They merely came upon people already inhabiting the land. Over the following decades, Europeans killed 70 million to 100 million of said inhabitants. It is not only not holiday-worthy, it is utterly absurd to celebrate a man who killed millions of people, and not condemn him as a mass murderer.

 

If you think that’s an unfair assessment of the guy you drew pictures of in second grade, then feast your eyes on these 14 memes, which convey the same ugly truth in much funnier ways. And if it’s a meme, then it must be true, right?
