    • This is completely ridiculous. Oh no Columbus was racist? No shit, most of the people at that time thought the Earth was flat. People need to stop erasing contributions to the human race just because they don't fit your 21st century view

    • Ok so for those that don’t know the capital of Ohio is Columbus and they want to change it because he brought over slaves and what gets me is that they all want to basically pretend history didn’t happen

    • I thought the point of the USA was to embrace it’s history and learn from it. Removing history and pretending something didn’t happen is what the socialist Germany did back in the 40’s.

    • Or here me out, we could respect history and understand while it’s not always right, we have more to gain from remembering history rather than destroying what “hurts our feelings”

    • No, most people DO NOT agree with this. The liberals in the media are making it SEEM like "everybody" wants this. Just like they are making it seem like Trump can't win in Nov. It's a standard demoralization tactic employed by the left and their puppets in the media. Don't listen to it.

    • Before you give TC to a guy saying Columbus is racist just know that, Colombus adopted a native as his son, he was referred by his peers as "to nice to natives", and that part of his deal from spain was that spain got all the resources he discovered (which includes potential slaves).

It’s trying to erase history instead of trying to learn from your mistakes and make the right decision, like they did.

    • After the union won the war, Lincoln told all the Confederates to come back and that they never stopped being Americans. The statues were made to honor both sides. These people offed each other by the thousands and still had the balls to put it behind them. Meanwhile people today are mad about shit
