Indiana city renames Columbus Day and Good Friday to be more 'culturally sensitive'

Recommended Posts

Mayor John Hamilton, who made the change on Friday, said the politically correct names will make the two holidays more inclusive in a memo to city employees.

‘We are terrifically proud of our diverse workforce at the city,’ Hamilton wrote.

‘That diversity makes us stronger and more representative of the public we proudly serve.

‘These updated names for two days of well-merited time off is another way we can demonstrate our commitment to inclusivity.’

Good Friday is not a federal holiday so they should leave it alone.
Columbus Day is and it's a slap in the face to history and to Natives.
I don't think it should be abolished but we should be honest about it.

Fall Holiday and Spring Holiday... so stupid.
They're still calling them Holidays and therefore still celebrating them.
