Symbols of pride for Italian Americans, painful reminders of historical injustices and brutal atrocities for indigenous peoples—statues of controversial 15th century explorer Christopher Columbus have been decapitated, toppled or taken down in cities and towns across the United States amid the ongoing protests against racial injustice and police brutality sparked by the killing of unarmed African American George Floyd by a white Minneapolis police officer in May.
Mohawk activist John Kane of Native talk show and podcast 'Let's Talk Native...' explains Christopher Columbus' legacy of slavery and genocide against Indigenous people.
