SHS always puts on a nice assembly for Black History Month. It's nice that the middle school can now participate.

Rick has a point. It'll be interesting to see how long it stays up.

Point? What point? Sounds like his usual noise to me! Xanax anyone?
Ahh the sounds of a leftist demanding his drugs!!!!!
The sounds of a nancy boy who likes to start crap with rickross the boss! lol
It is a shame that because kids have an assembly, adults need to fuss at one another online.
Who's fussing. I just posted Michael Richards response to his N-word debacle. I agree that we are at a point now that we dont need all the seperation of color in America. we dont get a white history month or a chinese history month or mexican history month. Its like the gays that want to be treated like everyone else, but constantly refer to themselves as a "community"....Aren't we all a community? Cant we just be Americans???? I dont look at my half black nieces and nephews any different than my white ones. They're just my family.
And anyone who wants to call me a racists is so far off base it's not even funny. (Not that anyone has yet)

So why did you post a racist rant? What does it have to with the original article?
People are tired of hearing about black history month!!
Nothing. You win. Game over.
rickross--i was agreeing with your comments
I know. We both commented on his post so it made it look like I was directing my comment at you. Its all good :-)
I couldn't have wrote your last post any better. That is all so true. So what is the explanation from the other colors why they should be treated any different than the next guy ?? Anybody ??
your "long post"
Michael Richards better known as Kramer
From TVs' Seinfeld does make a good point.
This was his defense speech in court
After making racial comments in his comedy act.
In it he raised a few interesting points...
Someone finally said it.
But how many are actually paying attention to this?
There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans,
Arab Americans, etc.
And then there are just Americans...
You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you...
So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live in?
You have the United Negro College Fund.
You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah.
You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP.
You have BET...
Imagine if we had WET
(White Entertainment Television)...
We'd be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day,
You would call us racists.
If we had White History Month,
We'd be racists.
If we had any organization for whites only to 'advance' OUR lives,
We'd be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce,
And then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that???
A white woman could not be in the
Miss Black American pageant,
But any color can be in the Miss America pageant.
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships...
You know we'd be racists.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed
Black Colleges in the US...
Yet if there were 'White colleges',
That would be a racist college.
In the Million Men March,
You believed that you were marching for your race and rights.
If we marched for our race and rights,
You would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange,
And you're not afraid to announce it.
But when we announce our white pride,
You call us racists.
You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us.
When a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.
I am proud...
But you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists???
There is nothing improper
About this e-mail...
But let's see which of you are proud enough to send it on.
I sadly don't think many will.
We have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS
In this country.
We won't stand up for ourselves!
I took out the "cuss/bad" words. There is no reason in the world for the moderator to remove this one. Truth is real.
Cheers to that !!
I 100% agree with you. I want a Caucasian History Month, a United White College Fund, NAAWP, a Straight-Hair Ball, and a White Ms.America. It's only fair, right? And before you call me racist, remember- if you disagree with me, then I guess that makes YOU a racist, right? Fair is fair.
Sir?, you have pegged it as so. Why does the white person get a degree of negative response to a statement, when it speaks the facts? If an Asian, or a Latino person makes the same post, it gets viewed as, I don't know,...legit? As my great grandparents, on both sides, came here, on a boat from Sicily, in 1932, makes me no more than an American. However, the color of my skin "marks" me, a racist. My family, and ancestors, had absolutely NOTHING to do with any slave trades of any sort...but, alas, my pale, olive skin tone, marks me, a racist. Who's any sort of racist, besides the one calling it out?
What's up with the police brutality must stop sign the kid is holding up? Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't a black guy kill a white cop not too long ago in Sandusky?
What's that have to do with him holding the sign?
What's the sign have to do with black history month? The majority of crimes against blacks are committed by blacks.
I enjoy the we have freedom to vote sign. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't a black woman in Cincinnati just admit to voting for Obama 6 times in the last election?
What's that have to do with this article?
There are kids holding signs saying those things. What do those signs have to do with black history month???
They look like quotes from the Civil Rights Movement and from other blacks throughout history. All part of black history.
What group keeps segregation alive..... blacks! It benefits them their oppressed.
Time to move forward now.
The reason we celebrate Black History and the reason the kids are holding up those signs is to remind folks of where we were and celebrate where we are. We often fuss because the younger generation tosses the N word around like it is nothing .... today's program at SHS helps remind these young folks what life was like for their great grandparents and grandparents. The reality is the Civil Rights Movement wasn't that long ago and it would be very easy to repeat those days. I agree we should celebrate other cultures or races besides the black race. But please tell me, what other race of people here in the USA was owned by other people? White people owned black people. We celebrate our freedom from England on July 4, 1776 why not celebrate the granting of freedom for black people?
Then asking purely out of curiosity and not sarcasm would it be appropriate to make February "U.S. History Month" instead? That allows for the introspection of all U.S. citizens from various backgrounds and ethnicities. Certainly Black History can fall under this but it would not be exclusive to others. Just look at the holidays that fall in this month anyway. They span the gamut of secular to civil to religious: Groundhog Day, Super Bowl, Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, Valentine's Day, and Presidents' Day. There is so much culture in each of these, including the currently-observed Black History Month, that this would be a great, uniting month of remembrance and reminder that we are all a part of history as modern citizens!
I'd go along with that, HZ.
Exactly, and the N word gets played alot on the radio and on BET. Celebrate freedom.Thumbs up!
But please tell me, what other race of people here in the USA was owned by other people? I'll tell ya who, all of us by good ole' UNCLE SAM !!!
Keep stirrin' the pot, y'all. It'll never get better unless we all stop.
Funny thing is the ones that have the spoon in their hands are the blacks!
Beg to differ . In this day and age , with the access we all have to voice our opinions . We all have a spoon . Start stirring . ; ))))
I see where Mississippi just last week officially made slavery illegal in that state. The times are a changin' ??? Oh , yeah . There is a white news network - FOXNEWS . ; ))))

I celebrated it by blaring NWA and Ice-somebody outa my ghetto blaster, chugged a few 40's and watched New Jack City, burned a hole in my new FUBU with a black n mild.
Gila , I think you would enjoy listening to Unknown Hinson .
