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, and this leads to a sort of cultural blindness, where white people figure that everyone should be just like them (which is, as I'm sure you can tell, ironic as hell.)

well i do think we have enough white history...this was a white country mostly though so it makes sense except for the indians and the purchased blacks who were sold by their own people....we should have indian history month before black history month i think...they want black history...go to Africa....god forbid there was a WET... there would be extreme criticism....the latest which bothers me is BlackPeopleMeet dot com....a place for nice blacks to meet other nice blacks....match.com eharmony and the endless others arent enough for them...they have to have some fubu website for themselves for us by us

Is this country perfect? not by any means what-so-ever. I am a proud AMERICAN not a proud german/polish/american. I was born here and am glad for it.
While I may be risking sounding like a bigot, I can't help but notice that events like this are what breed racism. to even acknowledge the separation seems to be racist.
Human history is human history. I don't seem to be alone on this. If you google white history month the question seems to get asked a lot. And I am surprised to hear so many views from that search that thinks that ALL white people have had a comfortable history surrounded by servants and silk. that is BS!!
My age group never did anything to offend other races, we embraced it as far as i can tell. *SNIP* Same goes with sushi, that stuff isn't even a proper meal from what i was taught about food groups, but i supported it. I hate currie, but i will still suffer a plate of butter chicken cause that *SNIP* is good.
Why do i see so many young people from other races act like they need to be different from white people? What do white people DO that is so white? Modernized? that is white? well there were times that wasn't so, so i would say we have just as much to celebrate but are too scared to because it might offend other races

LOL. Didn't you know that whites, especially white males are the epitome of evil and all that is wrong with the world? Political correctness shows that interest in white history means that you are a racist mean spirited bigot. I mean why else would michelle obama be ashamed of this country right up until her husband was elected president? Certainly she knows better than any dirty nasty white man does. Just for future reference, you should know that the only permissible discrimination is against straight white males. [/sarcasm]

Thing is a celebration of being White, must also be a celebration of your history. Don't forget to include the Black Slavery, and genocide of the Natives.
