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.
