In recent months, Christopher Columbus’s legacy has been under attack. Statues of the historic explorer have been vandalized in Chicago, New Haven, New York City, and Baltimore. Meanwhile, Los Angeles has decided today is not Columbus Day, but rather Indigenous Peoples Day. Austin is following suit. And some of you might be wondering why.

We’ll leave it to entertaining know-it-all series Adam Ruins Everything to explain things, and in a Magic Schoolbus parody!

“He didn’t discover America. He didn’t prove the Earth was round. He just bounced around the Caribbean, slaughtered a bunch of innocent people, and died thinking he had made it to India.”

Goddamn.

Happy Indigenous Peoples Day.
