Uhm no. This was good until they got to that fucker Bartolomé de las Casas and someone fixed their mouths to utter ‘Deify’.
Do you know how Las Casas ‘saved the Indians’? By advocating for for African Slaves; Africans being much ‘hardier and sturdier’ and in his mind, less likely to commit mass suicide in rebellion.
He gave up his Taino Slaves, but got new BLACK ONES.
Christopher Columbus and Bartolomé de las Casas are EQUAL FUCKERS in ENSLAVING and DEHUMANIZING.
And in the Caribbean we KNOW THIS, starting at the very least from my Father’s generation, when independence happened and OUR historians got to make the books to teach us; vs the Spanish and the English and the French.
Christopher Columbus and Bartolomé de las Casas BOTH deserve to be burned in effigy.
Whoever the fuck ‘theoatmeal’ is, they’re as shitty as zenpencils.
Reblogging for additional commentary because FUCKING IMPORTANT.
