There’s a big party going on at the Los Angeles Times. They have finally kicked Christopher Columbus, and L.A.’s Italian-Americans to the curb.
Twenty five years ago, ahead of its time as usual, the city of Berkeley renamed Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples Day.
Los Angeles, what took you so long?
Henceforth in Los Angeles, there will be no day devoted solely to the achievements of Columbus, who was both the discoverer of the New World and the catalyst for the destruction of Native American people and their cultures in the centuries that followed.
Sorry Italian-Americans. The L.A. Times runs on hate, it’s what keeps them going. Now it’s your turn.
