  • @TTC_Media You're a much smarter guy than I am if you're able to understand what I was getting at by looking at a collection of slides with minimal text on them. These slides are intended to accompany a lecture familiarizing people with the memory of Columbus and the controversies his memory has stirred up in recent years. Has Columbus been accused of Genocide? Yes. Did he commit genocide? Every individual needs to examine available evidence before making that decision.

  • Interesting. You credit Christopher Columbus with genocide? He only popularized the route to the America's and was not a part of the genocide, which you also seem to lack an understanding of how all of that transpired. Nothing like good old fashioned propaganda with no credibility or verified research.
