Victor Ramirez: You shouldn't celebrate it cause it has nothing to do with you. That's my Inheritance all of it, since to this time.

Jiahao Wan: I like it though

John Marin: HIspanics unwittingly brought in their lungs the virus of VIRUELA or small pox which in twenty years caused a demographic catastrophe throughout the Americas.

Shivum Ganesh: I'm being perfectly honest here- but who are you guys, white supremactists?

sremmy 159: You are beyond retardation, and natives loved settlers with open arms? Don't act like natives never killed us.

Estonian Mapping: Liberal propaganda with a twist.

TheSaintFrenzy: No  doubt our text books leave out the nasty stuff of natives too.  I'm so glad for European permanence in the western hemisphere. Not one sane person would reject the advancements of western civilization. Two civilizations clashed, one with advancement and one that didn't even have a round wheel yet. It happened, I feel no guilt for it.

Brian Korpacz: Christina talking about the mattress made me crack up. 👍👍.

Angel Alvarez: first!!!!
