In $14.92 Columbus sailed the ocean blue!

And what do you think he did to the natives??

I'm hearing that they are hiring thieves from other companies in certain departments. May want to look into that Mr. Rick. Hold on to your wallet!

I think the phrase "you people" says it all. 1492 Columbus is a Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

Mr Rick, we understand NXP initiatives to cut costs while trying to be fair. I don't believe that post was meant to be rude or condescending; however, to many of us in America Columbus was not the founder of this country. In fact, he was notoriously responsible for the slaughter of at least 35,000 Arawak Indians inhabiting the islands of Cuba and Haiti (what they dubbed Hispaniola). According to Howard Zinn (A peoples' history of the United States, 1980, pp. 2-5), he never made it to America; he just looted for gold and enslaved and murdered an entire population of people. So, to some of us over here calling the project 1492 Columbus is the same as calling it 1933 Hitler. This (or at least my post) is not intended to upset anyone at NXP, it is merely to correct an incorrect understanding of historical events. Also, Org change is an intense subject that affects everyone; you're going to have to accept a certain amount of venting on sites such as this one. I wish both you and us success 😊
