White history month is every month of the year, including Black History Month. Maybe if you took ten seconds to think about who's in power in America right now, you'd have figured that out.

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)
Minor biological quibble, but... using the technical term of "species" - groups of organisms that do not reproduce together - the chihuahua and great Dane ARE different species.
The two do not - and cannot - naturally reproduce.
The Great Dane (18th Cent. French: Grand Danois), also known as German Mastiff (German: Deutsche Dogge) or Danish Hound (German: Dänischer Hund), is a breed of domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris) known for its giant size.
The About this sound Chihuahua (help·info) (Spanish: Chihuahueño) is the smallest breed of dog and is named after the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. Dog: (Canis lupus familiaris)
The dog (Canis lupus familiaris and Canis lupus dingo) is a domesticated form of the gray wolf, a member of the Canidae family of the order Carnivora. The term is used for both feral and pet varieties. The domestic dog has been the most widely kept working, hunting and companion animal in human history. The word "dog" may also mean the male of a canine species, as opposed to the word "bitch" for the female of the species.
Species: C. lupus
Subspecies: C. l. familiaris and C. l. dingo.
As a biological term, race denotes genetically divergent human populations that can be marked by common phenotypic traits.
A phenotype is any observable characteristic or trait of an organism: such as its morphology, development, biochemical or physiological properties, behavior, and products of behavior (such as a bird's nest). Phenotypes result from the expression of an organism's genes as well as the influence of environmental factors and the interactions between the two.
In biology, races are distinct genetically divergent populations within the same species with relatively small morphological and genetic differences. The populations can be described as ecological races if they arise from adaptation to different local habitats or geographic races when they are geographically isolated. If sufficiently different, two or more races can be identified as subspecies, which is an official biological taxonomy unit subordinate to species. If not, they are denoted as races, which means that a a formal rank should not be given to the group, or taxonomists are unsure whether or not a formal rank should be given. According to Ernst W. Mayr, "a subspecies is a geographic race that is sufficiently different taxonomically to be worthy of a separate name"
In biology, morphology is a branch of bioscience dealing with the study of the form and structure of organisms and their specific structural features.
Developmental biology is the study of the process by which organisms grow and develop. Modern developmental biology studies the genetic control of cell growth, differentiation and "morphogenesis", which is the process that gives rise to tissues, organs and anatomy.
Caucasians generally have relatively no prognathism; a relatively small face; a narrow, tear-shaped nasal cavity; a "silled" nasal aperture; tower-shaped nasal bones; a triangular-shaped palate; and an angular and sloping eye orbit shape.
Blacks typically have a broad and round nasal cavity; no dam or nasal sill; Quonset hut-shaped nasal bones; notable facial projection in the jaw and mouth area (prognathism); a rectangular-shaped palate; and a square or rectangular eye orbit shape.
Asians are often characterized by a relatively small prognathism; no nasal sill or dam; an oval-shaped nasal cavity; tent-shaped nasal bones; a horseshoe-shaped palate; and a rounded and non-sloping eye orbit shape.
It is important to note that many of these characteristics only have a higher frequency among particular races and the presence or absence of one or more does not automatically classify an individual into a racial group. Forensic anthropologists utilize the Fordisc program to help in the interpretation of craniofacial measurements in regards to ancestry/race determination.

Motion to make it "Slavery History Month"?

No offense but as a Native, whenever I watch History channel, it seems every month is white history month to me. Just sayin'.
