People lived and thought very differently over 500 years ago. Anything he did in the 1490s was completely acceptable at the time and need to be viewed through that lens. In fact, it is only within the last couple of decades that revisionists have been trying to erase the importance of Columbus.
It's like people who think they're smart or edgy by putting quotation marks around "discovered" when discussing Columbus.

Most, if not all, people at the time had completely forgotten the Vikings' earlier excursions.
