I think celebrate history of an specific race is racist.

I think Black History month is still needed, maybe more than ever because too many people are on the national stage whom, in the past, have been very vocal about how America is all about white, European culture and that we need to do everything to we can to protect it. Most of text book and curriculum leaves non whites and women out for the most part. The only way I can see justifying getting rid of Black History month is if the history text books change and curriculum changes.

But I'll wait til Frederick Douglas weighs in to decide for sure.

Is that answer relevant to the question? Hmmm..

It's sort of like the kid raising his hand to say that he doesn't have Spring Break plans, when the question was, "Who here has Spring Break plans?"

What about a specific person's achievements? Is that OK?

I remember Trayvon Martin; because Obama said he could be his son. Really shocked me.

Wish to God I had never heard our president say that-such an ill-timed, ignorant statement.


That was disgusting as it was interfering with a ongoing court case.

The president should of been impeached for breaking Zimmermans constitutional right to a fair trial.

Until there is a white history month "i.e. EQUALITY" I won't celebrate black history month

There are many people and accomplishments I could mention (I've been reading a lot of Cornel West lately if that counts,) but at this particular moment in history, it feels like I can't without it spawning an endless and contentious debate. So I'll observe it privately.

To the issue of why such a month is "needed," or why it isn't racist, I would add something about intersectionality, representation, privilege, and false equivalency, but for the same reason, and because I know many simply don't acknowledge those things (which is their prerogative,) or regard them as leftist nonsense (as, again, is their prerogative,) I won't.

I'll simply say, reading about our nation's history is always a good thing. And leave it at that.

Peace.

This year is special I think I will celebrate black history month by wearing "ALL LIVES MATTER" & "BLUE LIVES MATTER" shirts every where I go.

Well since people like you are trying to erase the white European history, we have to protect it. It's obvious that is under assault. This is a majority white country. If you don't like it move to a country that's not majority-white.

Well it makes you feel good about yourself. Meanwhile 6% of the country is committing just about half of all violent crime in the country. But let's just ignore that and Pat ourselves on the back for Black History Month.
