happy bartolome day!

i’ve not been a fan of celebrating columbus day since even if he wasn’t a tenth of the monster he’s been made out to be, christopher columbus should still not be worthy of a national holiday. the oatmeal does a good job of highlighting the monstery bits of the columbus story ( and much of it is truly horrifying ) and if you read all the way to the end they make the case for celebrating instead bartolome day after bartolomé de las casas. henceforth, we shall celebrate bartolome day and tell his story of advocacy of universal human rights.
