Franklin was a founding father.
Hamilton was the first head of the treasury.
I was just reading his steamy love letters to John Laurens last week.
"Cold in my professions, warm in my friendships, I wish, my Dear Laurens, it might be in my power, by action rather than words, to convince you that I love you. I shall only tell you that ’till you bade us Adieu, I hardly knew the value you had taught my heart to set upon you. Indeed, my friend, it was not well done. You know the opinion I entertain of mankind, and how much it is my desire to preserve myself free from particular attachments, and to keep my happiness independent on the caprice of others.
You should not have taken advantage of my sensibility to steal into my affections without my consent. But as you have done it and as we are generally indulgent to those we love, I shall not scruple to pardon the fraud you have committed, on condition that for my sake, if not for your own, you will always continue to merit the partiality, which you have so artfully instilled into me."
i think it makes sense to (i mean, i couldnt give a shit, really...) honor every culture that has helped add to america. They should honor the Indians (i think they do), West Africans, Vikings, etc. Its a melting pot of a country, yup.
i mean, really, who cares.
whatcha laughing at in the bolded part?
The Chinese "discovered" America first.
I would be cool with Leif Erickson Day over that shit head Columbus.
The lost tribe of Israel discovered America.
That all hell broke loose when Thorvald showed up.
I'm ok with it. Not celebrating, but yeah.
Cry all you want Columbus is still important I don't care what your woke revised history says.
Columbus discovered America because he not only landed there but he also cartographed the route and spread the word around, not just to Europe, unlike the Indians who had no idea there was anything outside of it or the Vikings who failed at colonizing the new world and died there. That's what discovering something means in that context.
You could call it breaking the isolation of the Americas.
What Leif Erickson did was pretty cool. I've read his saga and that of his father Erik the Red, who discovered Greenland. He wasn't half the mariner that Columbus was though. And Columbus' discovery of the New World is a major turning point in world history. Erickson's discovery of America had no long term impact.
One of my pet peeves is the use of the word historical to mean the first time something has happened. Historical is better used to mean something that has a long term impact; something important. Columbus' voyage was a massive historical moment. Leif's was more of a historical footnote.
So why exactly should Harriet Tubman be on our currency??? because she's black??? why not MLK??? why not Obama. What did she do that was any more important than what anybody on our currency did???
I get it, your'e a low IQ SJW who is just desperate to see racism, maybe you are the actual racist.
Iberian bitches were ill with the blue water navigation.
Even though he was Italian.
Because those people in 70k BC didn't pave the way for us to live our comfortable lives that we live now in the greatest country of all time.
Show some hespect for this country for once and the real explorers who made it possible.
lol, I bet the people complaining about Tubman would gripe just as much if it was MLK or Obama under consideration.
Tubman was a BAMF, dude.
Bob Arctor with his 5 day old alt account is such an Obvious try hard edge lord troll it’s comical.
Please just get banned again already
That gave me pause as well. I believe @NoDak is praising the navigational skills of the Portuguese and Spanish at the time. "Ill" meaning "good' and "bitches" used in a general, non-derogatory sense.
I believe what that was is an example of an extremely white, northern mid-westerner attempting to use urban parlance from about two decades ago. I hope I've cleared some things up here.
Me either, and it is.
I thought this was about that teen idol dipshit from the 80s
the one who ended up going full junkie
