This coming Monday is to some Columbus Day and to others Indigenous Peoples’ [sic] Day.
Since there appears to be much debate and controversy about the history of this country as well as the entire hemisphere, let’s stick with science:
We are all immigrants or descended from immigrants to this hemisphere.
Therefore, we unilaterally declare this weekend to be
We Are All Immigrants Holiday Weekend.
Today the United States (still) celebrates Columbus Day as a national holiday. On October 12, 1492, Christopher Columbus landed in the New World.
