Everybody Hates Chris. Columbus Day Remixed.

imported from the good folks at Blackademics.org

Happy Columbus day. A national holiday dedicated to one of the most insidious agents of colonialism, genocide, theft and enslavement. I came across a video beckoning us to reconsider Columbus day and introduce a national Indigenous cultures holiday. Check it out:

Trust me my Indigenous brothers and sisters -black folks have a whole month, yet that doesn’t do much to curtail the institutionalized systems of oppression that plague our poor communities. If anything, it gives people a pass. It makes them feel good about taking a few days to recognize and appreciate a “minority” community, in lieu of actually sweating, bleeding or dying to make them equal citizens.

To quote revolutionary emcee and historian.. me – “burn in hell Christopher Columbus” (from our song, Movement – download here).
