SPAIN CELEBRATES DAY OF OUR RACE

The Ethnic European barely survives on book royalties donated by Michael Walsh and supporters of real news and views. WE AIM to replace victor’s spin with real history, to enlighten, inspire and to educate, and with your help to share our stories as widely as possible.

Spain’s national holiday October 12 commemorates the exact date when Christopher Columbus first set foot in the Americas. Italian-born Christopher Columbus, who was sponsored by the Spanish monarchs Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile, was attempting to find a western sea route to India.

He set off from Palos de la Frontera in August 1492 in an attempt to find a western sea route to India. Columbus’ ships had been sailing west for several weeks, when on the morning of October 12, 1492, land was spotted.

The sighting is recorded as having been made by a lookout, but Columbus insisted that he had seen a light from the land a few hours earlier, therefore making sure that he was awarded a lifetime pension from the Spanish Royal family for being the first person to spot land. They then made landfall at an island in the Bahamas, which Columbus named San Salvador, though it’s not clear which island in the Bahamas this actually was.

Columbus’ voyages across the Atlantic Ocean started the European exploration and colonization of the Americas. Columbus did not actually reach the American mainland until his third voyage in 1498.

Normally National Day is celebrated with a military parade in Madrid. Apart from the huge parade in the capital, Madrid, there are plenty of other celebrations that take place throughout the rest of Spain.

National Day was first celebrated in Madrid in 1935 and was made an official public holiday in 1981. In 1987, its name was changed to Fiesta Nacional (Spain’s National Day), removing any reference to Spanish colonialism, of which there was much.

The day is also celebrated around the world: in the United States it is known as Columbus Day; Day of the Americas, in Uruguay and Belize; Día de la Raza (Day of the Race) in Mexico, Chile and Colombia; and Discovery Day in the Bahamas. While in the United States, Columbus Day is a chance for Italian-Americans to celebrate their heritage.

  • As much as I can relate to the sentiment of taking pride in your ethnic and cultural heritage, I must say that what the Sephardic Colombo brothers did to the natives of the Caribbean was one of the cruelest genocides, extinction level, in known human history. They went as far as barbecuing them like pigs over fire while they were still alive, because they would rather die standing on their feet fighting than being their slaves. That’s why they had to substitute them with African slaves.
