NightSide - Should We Still Celebrate Columbus Day?

BOSTON (CBS) - The second Monday of October became the federal holiday known as Columbus Day in 1937. But now there seems to be momentum building to abolish or rename the holiday, as this year nine new cities will officially celebrate "Indigenous People's Day" in one form or another, rather than the holiday named for the Italian explorer. Do you think it's time to get rid of Columbus Day? Or do you feel the explorer deserves a holiday?

Originally broadcast October 12th, 2015.
