Christopher mission was to look for gold, find a short route to Asian. But greediness made him turn Native Americans to slaves: the Natives were good kind and caring I guess they showed Christopher too much love, he didn't have to do all that he could have just look for another way to ask from the Natives 'Columbus I hate you'. Aghrrrrr!!!! I am Wild 'N' Out

I'll accept because I'm bored.

But Spanish colonialism from the Columbus era, including forced servitude and assimilation of the native population through Spanish missionaries was a good thing. The early Mesoamericans Con talks about we're absolute savages. The Aztec, in particular had a practice of kidnapping members of nearby tribes then ripping their beating hearts out on massive alters dedicated solely to human sacrifices. Other clans, such as those on the Yucatan, were bat crazy cannibals and ate human flesh as part of a "blood revenge" against their enemies. What Con fails to understand is that these were the most culturally and psychologically inept people in the history of the world, and bringing a new way of life to these blood thirsty maniacs through European serfdom was the best thing that could have happened to them; and Christopher Columbus has nothing to apologize for.

The truth about Christopher Columbus(hidden secrets). Christopher was not the first to discover the Americans was nor he the first to discover that the earth is round. He was the first in other exploits namely genocides and transatlantic slave trade
'What we committed in the Indies stands out among the most
unpardonable offenses ever committed against GOD and mankind, and
this trade[in Indian slaves] as one of the most unjust, evil and cruel
among them'
Columbus statement before he died. So i guess there is nothing to argue about because he said the truth with is own mouth.He also committed a great sin before GOD (Slavery).

I don't think anyone would argue that Columbus was the first to discover the earth is round... If that was the case he wouldn't think to get to India by going around the globe now would he lol.
