Teachers, Parents and all other peoples! Lend me your ears!

If anyone ever shrugs off the murdering, raping, starving, pillaging and enslaving actions of #ChristopherColumbus as "it was the times", I want you to tell them about a man named Father Bartolomé de Las Casas.
#THREAD
Father Bartolomé de Las Casas, the contemporary 16th century historian, *initially* believed #Columbus had been divinely inspired to make the "discovery".

He was a man of the cloth THAT WAS PRESENT WITH CHRIS ON THE LAND OF THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE.

And he wrote about it all.
The next time anyone excuses, "explains", justifies, lies or miseducates you or your children by saying,...

"Welp. He didn't know better."

"That's just what they did back then."

"You can't judge 1492 #ChristopherColumbus by our present day standards"
