Isn't white history taught in schools, for like all year?
I have always felt that we need to stop defining people by their color or race
.No wonder the aliens don't associate openly with us.
white people ,black people,Brown people,Hispanic people,indian people,chinese people
Dudes come on chill out, we have the entire year, we're the top dogs world wide
White history month will never happen.
It was the white man who made the black man his slave
It was the white man who kicked the Indian (native American) out of his home.
It was the white man who took over India and the rest of the world.
It is the white man who has to answer for the crimes of his ancestors.
What we once used to be (the white man), we should be ashamed of, there is no room for pride.
That is my opinion.
White history month is every day of the year!
That doesn't even compare with the treatment the white man showed the blacks, or any other culture for that matter
Listen closely pal, the past is behind me, but I still look at the mistakes my ancestors made so I don't repeat them, and as such I do realise without that past this present wouldn't exist, no need to swear like a little child.
No I do not agree. This is a part of American history, and it still a part of American culture today. The OP asked "When is White History Month?" There is no need for a White History Month, but that doesnt mean we dont need a Black History Month. Think about your time in school --- when was the impact of Black Americans studied? - Never. Every one should study the impact. It is good and right to acknowledge what has happened in the past in order to change the future.
Racists are funny. They're so 15th century... all Euro-centric and bible-thumping good little holier-than-thou types.
Yeah, if evolution is right then we all evolved from blacks
Well, odds are that early man was dark-skinned. The majority of people in the world have fairly dark skin, and most of our fossil record is found in places like Africa, the middle east, and south Asia, where dark skin is a big bonus.
Basically, white people are the ones most prone to talk about glossing over and ignoring racial differences, because it's never really mattered to whites in America. It's easy to ignore your background when you've never had to pay any price for looking the way you look.
As far as I can tell, the only people who are throwing up barriers, are the white people who feel that they're missing out on something because they don't get any exclusively "white" month.

I don't know, I feel like an idiot a lot. I am not good at communicating at all. I call it crap, because that is how I feel about it. I can use some cusses to describe it, but it would be deleted. I have ancestors that were martyrs, natives that were killed. I don't blame all white people for it, because that would be racist in my eyes. Blaming a race for evils is racist. Blaming a son for the sins of a father is wrong. I am a halfbreed, KKK types don't like me. I look at people as people, I dont care what color they are. I don't care if you are white, black, yellow, red, blue, purple. I see people as people, I judge people by their deeds. I know scumbag people of all races. I know good people of all races as well.

first if any one should be offended by Black history its the black people. there is no white history month because white people all know there roots. example , a German has his German holidays, a Russian there own. the entire African continent is grouped together under a skin colour. African Americans cannot in no way know a real cultural pride because the culture is almost completely lost and "white washed"

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)
