Ronn Neff: Columbus Day. Lots of jurisdictions are discarding observations of Columbus Day and renaming it “Indigenous People’s Day.” One thing they wish to draw our attention to is the mistreatment of Indians by Europeans.
I contend that “Indigenous People’s Day” doesn’t quite capture the cause of the problem. I suggest that the holiday be renamed in a way that captures what caused the oppression of the “indigenous peoples” by the Europeans and the disappearance of their cultures. I propose:
“Open Borders Day.” Ω
