Now, before I say anything, lemme 1st say that I appreciate any day off that the city is still willing to pay me for...that being said, Columbus Day is quite possibly the stupidest major holiday we celebrate. What the fuck this asshole do to get a day? I don't give a flyin fuck what bullshit your 4th grade history class told you, Chris ain't discover a gahdamn thing. There were folk living here already...you know, the NATIVE Americans? How you gon 'discover' something somebody already got?
You know what that's like? That's like me waiting til you're not home, kickin in the door to your crib, puttin all your valuables in a big burlap sack, sitting on your couch butt ass nekkid, makin myself some roman noodles and running up your phone bill with 1-900 numbers then when you come home and see me chillin, I say 'Na, na...I discovered this! I claim this house for me...you can still live in the backyard tho, that's cool, right?' Would I get a day for that? Well...maybe a day in court, but other than that, hellfuckin no!
There's gotta be hundreds of historical mafuckas more deserving of a day than him...Benjamin Franklin, Malcolm X (I've always wanted a Malcolm X day)...hell, even Colonel fuckin Sanders! At least that dude can cook up tasty birds...that mafucka contributed to society. All Columbus did was Debo a whole people for they land...that ain't heroic, that's a crime. So, while I will gladly stay home and collect a paycheck today, I think we need to take a second look at exactly what we celebrating...that is all.
