He didn't discover the continent.
He wasn't the 1st European to reach the continent.
So what exactly is he celebrated for?
I would commend you for your continuous attempt to make the thread about PC/SWJ/cancel culture, but that's nothing to commend anyone for.Well sure you are. The entire point of your thread is to cancel a historic figure based on the fact that he did not conform to modern values.
Yeah, no.There is no question that his exploration directly led to significant contributions in the way that mankind understands the world,

Oh... really??? You have read my posts and you think I'm all about the so-called cancel culture? LOLThe main reason I think that is what this is about is I read your posts.
This is an extremely poor attempt at framing what I posted.But, if you want to limit your position to an argument that Columbus was an underacheiver have at it.
