My credit union was closed today and that did not make me a happy camper. It was closed because we have a holiday for Columbus. Give me a break! Columbus and his crazy crew of barbaric men almost obliterated the native people of the West Indies. These are the Tainos people, that helped Columbus after he docked. If it was not for their help, Columbus would never have survived his expedition home. To thank them Columbus and his crew raped the Tainos people and took some home to sell as slaves. This is just a thumbnail look at the truth about Columbus. Research and become enlightened. As children we were fed so much misinformation about Columbus in our school books. Hey, go ahead and close my grocery store if you want, if you only call it Tainos Day.
