20 thoughts on “Tension Remains High Over Christopher Columbus Statue At Marconi Plaza In South Philly

  1. This is a simple question – imagine a person called Colin killing all of your family, taking everything you own, will ever own (including your history) and enslaving you and your friends… would you call Colin a hero or a villain? (Advice – you may have an advanced or simple brain, I suggest clearing it before answering). Basic scum and wannabe mafia should lose every time and not be celebrated through twisted history and statues.

  2. Columbus real birth name was Salvador Fernandes Zarco and he was the son of Dom Fernando, Duke of Beja, Alentejo and maternal grandson of João Gonçalves Zarco, discoverer of Madeira. Columbus born in Cuba, Portugal, the son of a nobleman and related to other Portuguese navigators. His real name was concealed, Christopher Columbus being a pseudonym, meaning Bearer of Christ and the Holy Spirit.

    There are Court documents which confirm that Columbus's nationality was Portuguese and Columbus often uses the words "my homeland" in relation to Portugal. His wife was Portuguese too.
    It is time the world knows the truth, the real truth! The man was not Italian but indeed Portuguese, his father and mother were Portuguese too as I said above.
    It is very disturbing how the Italians continue to believe that Columbus was Italian all this time.
    Before I forget…
    Columbus did not discover America, he landed in the region by accident.
    His real name was not Columbus either!
