11. You're right, we should have indigenous people day holiday...


... as more of a replacement for that specific holiday. But later we will need some holiday to commemorate the people's revolution that I think may happen if Bernie wins, and that is coupled with so many other uprisings around the globe too. Perhaps giving this man too much credit for all of the events going on, but he did give us life to start the Arab Spring, which arguably has had a major effect on the upheavals everywhere.

I guess my comment here was more of a personal note that he is a lot more of a hero than Columbus, who absolutely was not a hero in my mind, and the opposite of someone who should have a day commemorating an individual. And if we commemorate someone like that in the middle east, perhaps that will also take away from ISIS trying to redefine the revolution over there to something that more is aligned with terrorism, than a battle for people's rights everywhere that could be defined with such a holiday.
