*Oh they’re really not going to like this, but dear white people, its all in fun.
“Columbusing” is the term cultivated for the ridiculous notion that you actually discovered something that has been around for quite some time.
Damn, come to think of it, that’s just about everything that existed LONG before you came to appreciate it. For example, rock & roll, twerking, even a country called America.
And what do we have to thank for coming up with this inventive term? A hilarious sketch from CollegeHumor.
Elvis did NOT invent rock n roll — but a lot of white people still think he did – a perfect example of something being “Columbused.”
Get it? We thought you would.
