Was Amerigo a racist?

 The United States of America.  America was named for an Italian explorer and cartographer in 1507 (a white guy who called Brazil The New World) Amerigo Vespucci. I'm sure that makes the name of our country racist by association. And he worked for the French, Portuguese and Spanish, all those racist Europeans. This week-end a statue in Crawford Co. Ohio was decapitated--he wasn't even in the Civil War! But he was white. Probably just vandals, but aren't all anarchists vandals?
