What 's everyone so proud about anyway?

Their parents Snip

You did NOTHING to be here. You did NOTHING to turn out whatever 'color' or 'race' you are.

2 people maybe from the same block, maybe from different continents met and 'made love'

You share the histories of both.

WHAT IS EVERYONE SO PROUD OF?!?!??!

SEX?>?>!

I thought while I was at it, i'd add my opinion about the whole "GAY" thing.

Yes it's a 'defect' in a way, but also a genetic phenom in another. It could easily be natures answer to overpopulation. The 'defect' because they cannot reproduce with same sex. It's nothing to "celebrate" and it's nothing to be tortured or bullied about. They are the answer to a question of balance. IMO.

Why celebrate it?

My good god... (oh i'm not religious, either.)

Just like the dumb incorrect term African American, it did not come from everyday black people, I can guess with high probability it was started by a socialist sepratist professor.


I am going t repeat this answer every time someone brings it up. Next up... 'Women Liberation Movement' whatcha think?

I like Heritage Month, that would be great!

I have a friend from Nigeria (No, not on email
), and I was really surprised that it was so huge, more than 152 million people in 32 states and yet I know next to nothing about this huge country. Heritage Month would give people a chance to educate themselves about their own and others origin.

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.

No way. Black history month seems to celebrate black history BEFORE America. I don't mean to sound mean but if were only black America history wouldn't there be more black only water fountains, cotton, and everyone saying boss. I think they want to forget their history in America and celebrate the history that came with them from Africa.

I am Canadian by the way, sure i have some German, British, and even Lebanese background. I have never lived in those places.... I AM Canadian....*crack..fzzzz*


Wrong again. Black history celebrates all the heroes of black history who helped make huge strides in American history from Martin Luther King Jr., Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas, Little Rock nine to Thurgood Marshall, etc. etc. It celebrates those after America became a country. What you are referring to, in a bad way too, are proponents of extreme Afrocentrism. Afrocentrism and black history are two completely different things. Again, please read up on this stuff before talking ignorantly.

My point is that history should be perverted by limiting to race. History is very important. I don't really think anyone who agrees with you understand that black history, Native American history, etc. etc. have all been subverted under European and American history. They are sub-cultures that are mocked, avoided, and commercialized. They deserve their little spotlight. Goodness knows no one in America gives a sh-t anymore.

I agree, there should be no parades, no networks, no months, for anyone.

It is decisive and I am tired of people trying to make me ashamed for things that happened in the past that I had nothing to do with.


Nobody can make you ashamed. Only you can do that to yourself. You should be ashamed though.... for claiming you want no parades, networks or months for anyone. People can do what they want, regardless of your paranoia that it's all being done to shame you.

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.

Think about this...

IF women were never 'working' we would have at LEAST twice the available job positions for men.

IF women were never 'working' we would have children that knew right from wrong, were shown love and taken care of and taught real-morality.

IF women were never 'working' we would probably use less fuel, oil, FAST-FOOD, etc.

Think about it.

I am not for having women in the dungeon cooking meals... or anything like that.

I think we have bodies designed for tasks. Men are clearly designed for leighbor, women are clearly designed to nurture.

I think women work EVERY-DAY with children. Some, harder than many men.

So let me clarify before the spamming begins... I love women, I think they deserve much praise, but also... I believe in nature, and naturality.

Balance.

I should point out that my OP was a reaction to a news cast on Canadian television. What is celebrated here may be different. We don't care about Martin Luther here, we actually got busy and physically saved people instead of running some political platform for one mans popularity

White history month is every day of the year! I think they celebrate black history particularily because its usually regarded as "historically insignificant" and never covered.

That, or we really need a white Jesse Jackson (AKA the emperor of black people)

I don't want to derail my own thread to explain how much I agree with you in so many ways. this is a big problem. Try telling a Woman that.... hooolllly *SNIP* they get mad, like hate me mad, and they cannot even explain why without their lower jaw shaking in pure hatred
Balance.

When is true and accurate history month?

Academic history is as ridiculous as Bullfinch's Mythology.

So you're saying those days are not part of white culture?
As MLK day is part of black culture.

How about thanksgiving month, turkey and hats with buckles for everyone?
I mean if you find a need to celebrate your origing for a whole month, then just do it, whatever it is.
I just think it would be kind of time consuming; Italian History Month, Jewish History Month, Norwegian History Month, Jugoslavian History Month.... You get my point. Even a day for each of the imigrant countries now staying in the US would propably make a dent in the productivity of the country.

BTW, I don't see the need for any colour history month.

Second thought.

I like the heritage month, for everyone. Human heritage month sounds good. We should be proud of our diversity.

Celebrate it!

I do agree that if there were a white history month, a white entertainment channel, white pride day, it would be viewed as bigotry.

I am not saying I want these things, but they would not go over well and you know it.


Still not ashamed, thanks for your opinion though.

This is why we should all just be "American" rather than African-American, Mexican-American, Asian-American, etc.. America is the only country that does that.

It's pointless, yeah, we (Africans) were slaves in this country, but the new-generation is getting past all of that now, racism is slowly dying and it would be faster if we wasn't so separated. All this "racial pride" going on around Black History Month isn't even about black history anymore.

My little sister was told to do a project for her school and dress up along with the project. I asked my sister who she was she doing her project on, she told me, "Beyonce." I said, "WTF?? I would give you a ZERO!" She told me that their teacher doesn't care who they do it they're project on, they just have to be known and black. I'm like BS, just kill Black History Month, it's a waste of "pride" anyway. The new generation is coming together better than ever, kill the unnecessary racial profiling.

Partial truth at best. How do you think those slaves were captured? Do you honestly believe that "great white hunter" launched endless raiding parties into deepest Africa in search of warm bodies? I suggest a little research on the topic my friend.


It was the white man who kicked the Indian (native American) out of his home.
True. It was a time of expansionism and conquest.


It was the white man who took over India and the rest of the world.
India seems to be doing very well in my opinion. What rest of the world? China? Hardly, Japan? Hardly. Vietnam? I think not. Malaysia, Indonesia? Doesn't seem that way. Pakistan, Iraq, South Africa? In the past yes, but such inequities rarely last to long.


It is the white man who has to answer for the crimes of his ancestors.
LOL. Bite me.


What we once used to be (the white man), we should be ashamed of, there is no room for pride.
You go ahead and be ashamed. Hide your head. Or is your culture so devoid of accomplishment that you must denigrate others in order to feel good about yourself?


That is my opinion.
You know what they say about opinions, right?

It's part of the hate whitey racist agenda that the powers that be seek to program into people's minds, even whites, which one self hating whitey posted exposing himself. Slavery was and still in, an African business, blacks captured and sold their own people. Slavery in the US was capitalistic, not racial, they would have bought slaves from anyone, just was that the Africans had the market, and were right across the sea, if it was China there, and there was a Chinese slave market, then the slaves would be Chinese, and the same if it was Croatia. This is the real racism in the US, the hate honky racism, that so many, even whites have been brainwashed to hate themselves and believe lies that pass for history.

Your sister just made me laugh for a while, and ya that sounds like a roll call to make sure the shirts are with the shirts and skins are with the skins," now back to racism everyone" holly crap.
