Happy Indigenous Peoples' Day

[Content Note: Racism; violence.]

Today is the U.S. federal holiday known as Columbus Day. Columbus Day, however, is terrible. A terrible day that celebrates a terrible man at the continued expense of the indigenous people he harmed.

Some locations around the country, including Los Angeles, have moved to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples' Day, which is such a good idea — and that is definitely what we are celebrating in Shakesville.

Fuck Columbus.
