Columbus Gets the Ax

In an artistic display of rebellion, a statue of Christopher Columbus in Detroit (the old French fort between the Haudensaunee Confederacy and the Anishinaabe) was decorated with an ax to the forehead, complete with fake blood.


This is reminiscent of this summer’s removal of the Confederate Flag in South Carolina (which resulted in systemic change) and last month’s attack on a statue of Junipero Serra in California (which resulted in the authorities seeking to press hate crime charges against the Native American perpetrators–   I have explained why that decision in and of itself meets the definition of a hate crime.)
