    Columbus discovered Guanaja, one of the Bay Islands. He only came into contact with one Indian.

    Unfortunately that single Indian contracted smallpox and killed off all the rest of them

    A coworker is very upset with how Columbus and America treated the injuns and took their land and I told him his is more than welcome to give his big house and yard to a family of dirt worshippers to apologize and he clams up.

    As a paisan I am Team Columbus.

    Yet nobody points the finger at the Vikings who originally brought plague and pestilences to the Redskins.
