History as a Competitive Sport?

October 11, 2022

CLR Show 1769. Air Date October 10, 2022. Yes, Columbus was a creep on many levels and, yes, the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas deserve recognition both for their contributions and their suffering. The issue is, should we recognize the former in lieu of the latter? Should Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples Day be positioned as dueling holidays? Are Italian Americans less deserving of a cultural identity day than, say, German Americans? Complicated questions, and the jury is still out. With Co-Host, David Bach.
