What about the world Christopher Columbus set in motion? He set in motion western racism. He set in motion not only the colonization of history, but also the information about history. All the fight over curricula was set in motion because Christopher Columbus and others set in motion a concept of divine White right/manifest destiny. The assumption that the people of Europe had rights over other people. It set in motion another bogus concept of a ''chosen'' people by God. If God chooses one people over another people, then God is a bigot. You cannot say this is also a God of love. God is kind, God is no respecter of kith and kin and say, ''God chose me to do something.'' Then while people are choosing, inasmuch as all ''chosen'' people ''chose'' themselves, why in the hell don't you choose yourself to be free? Why won't you make a choice and say, ''We are too proud to live in slums.'' Why don't you understand what went wrong with the world Christopher Columbus did not discover?
