He was the first Slave Trader (allegedly)

I note that clowns have vandalised the obelisk commemorating Christopher Columbus because, in the words spoken by one of the attackers:-

“Christopher Columbus symbolizes the initial invasion of European capitalism into the Western Hemisphere. Columbus initiated a centuries-old wave of terrorism, murder, genocide, rape, slavery, ecological degradation and capitalist exploitation of labor in the Americas. That Columbian wave of destruction continues on the backs of Indigenous, African-American and brown people.

I await the attacks on the statue which commemorates the birthplace of General George Custer in Ohio. Why Custer? He was after all a Union Army hero; but he was really nasty to the Indigenous Native Americans during his offensives and campaigns against the Sioux and the Cheyenne. He made what was to be a fatal mistake by dividing his forces into three columns, and was himself cut down at the Battle of the Little Big Horn.

Some have also added the 9/11 memorial in New York as a target for direct action, stating that the attack was actually against the capitalist system which carries on the degradation of black people, and the big square holes should be just filled in, preferably with the bodies of white people. This last remark was discounted as just bravado from disaffected members of the radical Left.
