One of the readings for week three talked about the complete destruction of the Native American race because of Christopher Columbus. Many believe Christopher Columbus was a hero, and in a way they are right. However, our history books do not talk about him killing off an entire race because of his own greed.

When that did not turn out as planned, Columbus decided to go on a slave raid and bring five hundred Indians back Spain.

But Bathsheba still gets blamed for David’s misery although she was just a women that did not intentionally try to get with David.
