Now people going to ask what about brown, light brown, tan etc?
No, I don't think it's racist. Hell maybe what's racist about it is that only 1 month out of the 12 is devoted to it?
Rather it's to respect that culture in my opinion.
It's true, there is so much to celebrate about the "whites"...and about any culture..maybe you guys don't get the true amount of appreciation that you would get.
You say scared...what is there to be scared about? Celebrate all you wish, I don't think there would be anyone stopping you..rather they would all want to join in!!
I respect the culture, I celebrate it..because I think it's necessary and I want to...but sometimes I think it's stupid that people are being told to respect it..
They need to learn to.
Okay I've gone off topic now lol

White history = European history, American history which is something you studied in school and live in every day as history is a living entity. Do you really want to be limited to a month and then forgotten the rest of the year? Do you really want "white" history to be commercialized and turned into a fad where people celebrate the history just within that month and not every day? Black History month celebrates Black American history - it has nothing to do with race but rather black culture in America - which is a EURO-CENTRIC country. There is no such thing as white history because you can't just base history on race and dismiss all the different European cultures.
If you are American, and by your negative tone, you are, why don't you become a scholar on American history? Why not find about your ancestors? Are you Scottish, British, French, etc? Learn about that and stop making this about race.edit on 13-2-2011 by DevilJin because: (no reason given)

Isn't white history taught in schools, for like all year?
It's celebrated on st.patricks day, and I guess the other significant white imigrant groups special days in the US.
