Are there any European explorers we can celebrate or are they all evil?

If not the British, then the Spanish or French would have colonized America more completely. They all had colonies as it was. Some Western civilization was going to develop the land.

Also, fun fact for people whether they like Christopher Columbus or not, when I was in first grade I asked my teacher how we got the name “America.” She didn’t have an answer for me, but my 9th grade history teacher did. One of the earliest map makers was an Italian named Amerigo Vespucci. His name “Amerigo” was prominently displayed on the map, so people just started calling the land mass “America” from his name.

Columbus trafficked children to British royalty, he wrote about it in his journals.

I know history, fren. I refuse to bow down to your woke version of history, the tearing down of his statues and of loathing my European heritage. HAPPY CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS DAY, Amico! 🇮🇹 🇪🇸 🇺🇸

This is the Howard Zinn version of history they now teach as gospel. All the horrid shit he supposedly did was based on the word of one man, who hated him. No archeological proof of these crimes either. What Columbus said in his journals about the natives was that they'd make good subjects. Not slaves, subjects. As in citizens of the Spanish crown.

I’m not a fan of revising history but Columbus DOES NOT deserve a holiday.

Renaming Columbus Day Indigenous People’s Day is perhaps the one good thing that the faux Administration has done. He was a sick motherfucker, even by the standards of his day.

Read his contemporaries’ letters. I fully believe in right to rule by conquest, I’m about as traditionalist as it gets. That said, we should still have a sense of respect for life, and Columbus had none.
