More and more cities are now calling today, October 12, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, aka Native American Day, in an effort to abolish and erase the recognition and honor bestowed upon the sadistic, mass murdering, slave trading, rapist Christopher Columbus. South Dakota did it in 1990. Berkely, Ca. did in in 1992. So did Minneapolis. This year, 9 other cities are following suit, including Albuquerque, Portland and St. Paul. Oklahoma City is voting this week to make the change also.
