Share This Cartoon With Anyone Who Thinks Columbus Is Worth Defending
Web cartoonist Matthew Inman, who expresses himself on his site The Oatmeal, casts a jaded eye on Columbus and Columbus Day, and the words and pictures he's created tell the story of Columbus' legacy of atrocity better than most historical writing. Below are just a couple of sample images, we highly recommend you click over to The Oatmeal to read the entire thing, which is called "Christopher Columbus Was Awful (but This Other Guy Was Not)". The "other guy" is a name every child should know. Happy Bartolomé Day.
