Los Angeles Said Fuck Christopher Columbus & Removed His Statue

The Christopher Columbus Statue that once stood in downtown Los Angeles’ Grand Park is gone!

LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis provided an honest statement on the removal, stating:

The statue of Christopher Columbus rewrites a stained chapter of history that romanticizes expansions of European empires and exploitations of natural resources and of human beings.

This interesting and progressive feat comes a year after the County Board of Supervisors and Los Angeles City Council voted to get rid of Columbus Day as a holiday. Instead, they have replaced Columbus Day with “Indigenous Peoples Day.”

Don’t believe us, watch it above and in other culture news:
