Not Columbus Day, Short Form


What your Bloguero has been saying over and over and over again.

Actually, your Bloguero is astonished at how little understanding there is of the Original People. And what happened to them after 1492.

What your Bloguero has remembered today is the panoply of half baked rationalizations that seek to justify the conquest and the extermination of the Original People. There needs to be some education about this. Meanwhile, do NOT tell your Bloguero how history is full of conquests, that's what people do, and anyway the Original People died not so much by the sword, but because of disease, which was inadvertent (small pox blankets anyone?) Please do NOT.
