In the article "People's history of the United States" by Howard Zinn, he talks about all the awful things that he did to Americans and what he forced them to do. Howard doesn't talk about one single thing that he did good and I agree with him, Columbus was a savage and a murderer. Although he was a great navigator and adventurer.
Columbus has been very stereotyped and hated. People should read more about him before judging and saying he was good and beneficial for humanity.
