    And I may be an exception but I am not proud or embarrassed of Europeans "discovering" us. They were the ones that set sail. Just a historical fact.
    I think it's the pillaging, genocide, and enslaving that people object to, less so the "discovering" although I understand the people who think "invading" is the more proper term.

    There is ample evidence that the Norsemen were here first and not only didn't rape and pillage but participated in trading with the people they found here.

    I watched a documentary on the archeological findings a week or two ago.

    I agree in principle, but what's the call to action here?
