Celebrating Columbus day is something of an oxymoron. How can we as a nation, celebrate a day named after a man who helped usher in an era of slavery, colonialism and discrimination? Leave it to the girls of Broad City to help us navigate our mixed feelings. In a brand new edition of “Hack Into Broad City” Abbi and Ilana debate the merits of what they call “the national day of not doing shit.” And they’re not having it. Columbus, according to Ilana, was “the original white douche asshole,” who “raped and pillaged his way through America.”
Wait, does this mean we should cancel our brunch plans?
