Today is Columbus Day (except in places such as Seattle).
The back and forth argument about Columbus are an annual event and this year things are no different on the holiday that many love to hate:

It's that time again for many Americans to attack the person who is responsible for their comfortable affluent existence. #ColumbusDay

Yo, not like Columbus was fleeing religious persecution. Seriously, white people: give it up. #ColumbusWasAHero

Don't get mad at Americans for celebrating #ColumbusDay. Get mad at Spain. They financed him.

All around the Caribbean they build statues and name places after this mass murderer. And they're OK with that. It's sickening. #ColumbusDay

The same people who go on tirades attacking #ColumbusDay dont have the guts to attack prophet Mohammad & what he did & what his followers do

Imagine being forced to celebrate 9/11: attack on American soil, killed about 3/1000 of the people Columbus killed. #ColumbusDay

Celebrating #ColumbusDay the way our forefathers intended, by walking into other people's homes and announcing that I live there now.
