Happy Bartolomé de las Casas Day!

Because I'm in 'Merica, I'm surrounded by a bunch of people who are going to be tempted today to celebrate a holiday invented in the 1930's by a male-only Catholic organization called the Knights of Columbus because they wanted a male, Catholic role model their kids could look up to.

But since Christopher Columbus was actually "a sex slaver, mass murderer, and a champion of sociopathic imperialism," I invite you to read THIS COMIC by the Oatmeal, and join me in celebrating Bartolomé Day!
