Bet you didn’t see that coming
Columbus was so shit, but you know who wasn’t?
A rando Olmec woman.
A statue of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, which stood on one of the main avenues of Mexico City, will be replaced by one of an indigenous woman.
Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said the bronze likeness of Columbus would be moved to a park and a statue of an Olmec woman would take its place.
The Columbus statue was removed from its plinth last year ahead of protests.
Protesters have toppled Columbus statues in Latin America and the US.
Christopher Columbus, an Italian-born explorer who was financed by the Spanish crown to set sail on voyages of exploration in the late 15th Century, is seen by many as a symbol of oppression and colonialism as his arrival in America opened the door to the Spanish conquest.
Mayor Sheinbaum made the announcement on Sunday at a ceremony marking the international day of the indigenous woman.
She said that relocating the statue was not an attempt to “erase history” but to deliver “social justice”.
Ms Sheinbaum said that the Columbus statue “would not be hidden away” but that the civilisations which existed in Mexico before the Spanish conquest should receive recognition.
The mayor said that sculptor Pedro Reyes was working on a statue of a woman from the Olmec civilisation, which flourished in the Gulf of Mexico from 1200 BC to 400 BC, to replace that of Columbus on Reforma Avenue.
What even is “Olmec civilization”?
Does anyone care about that?
Do Mexicans even know what it is?
Mexicans don’t have this PC issue, generally. They’re not bothered by the idea of “yeah white people came and had sex with brown women and created the Mexican race.”
They do not feel bad about Christopher Columbus or Fernando Cortes or whatever.
Maybe they do when they come to America, because they’re stupid and will believe whatever Jews say if it seems financially beneficial. But naturally, this political correctness thing is a white phenomenon, sold to them by the Jews.
