Many are realizing the dangerous influences of Christopher Columbus as they relate to slavery, and other injustices he and his criminal associates perpetrated on Native Indegenous people of the Americas, and Blacks forceably spirited out of Africa to the Diaspora. Columbus's statues are being distroyed all over the United States and the world. Local officials are removing his statues from the public square for safe keeping. A rainbow of people are very upset of the murder of Black people by usually White police officers and citizens alike. Many are now embracing, and realizing Black Lives Matter.
