Kid Roasts Teacher Over 'Lies' About Columbus And The Internet Has A New Hero

By Mark Pygas

We don't hear about how he probably wasn't even the first European to discover the Americas, how he actually thought that he'd landed in India because he believed the world was pear-shaped and much smaller than it actually is, and of course, his brutal treatment of native populations. 

Alanya Kolberg recently took to Facebook to share a school journal entry by a Detroit school child named King. In the journal, King blasts his teacher for"teaching lies" about Columbus.
