Yeah, Ok, Let's TRULY Remember Columbus

  • me: question of the day is: If the Sopranos had never had an episode citing Columbus Day as an Italian-American holiday, would the absolutely pathetic movement to attach Italian heritage to one of the worst fucks in History who was on a Spanish expedition still have any purchase?
  • Jay: COLUMBUS WAS A HUSTLER
  • me: Columbus is a great example of European dude who shows up as colonizer and is like "Christ, these [Natives] are LAZY, we better ENSLAVE them so they can do ALL the work FOR US"
  • Jay: I bet he struck it as a deal the way real estate developers make deals
  • But instead of foreclosure he KILLED THEM ALL
  • ed note: Columbus as example of Arbeit Macht Frei colonialism, Slavery as "civilizing" project
