Yea the Jews never overcame injustice. Where's their month? Where's Mexican history month? It's all a reason to promote racism, get over it, we've all suffered. You guys got your retributions when Obama got re-elected. Now the white man suffers while the black man succeeds
Wow... black history month does not promote racism. Where in any black history month literature do you see something that says, "We must get retribution for our ancestors time in slavery?" It isn't there.
As for "Now the white man suffers while the black man succeeds" I don't even know how to respond to that other than laughing.
That part was meant to be a joke. I thought that was obvious. You were supposed to laugh.
Your a joke. I thought that was obvious.
Thank you. Similar to deertracker I appreciate the way you said that.
(Here it comes, look out!)
I am not disagreeing with what you said in general or even what the focus of Black History Month is. In fact, if people want to study that particular branch of history then more power to them! Learning should incorporate many points of view and opinions based on multidisciplinary support. But even with what you said and I agreed to, it would be nice to recognize that there is no usurpation of importance or relevance to many other histories that compose who we are.
Your words were true because they are thematic, universal. See?
"[Irish] history month is not about retribution, or celebrating a culture of [liquor] and [zealous Catholicism]. It is about a history of people that overcame a great injustice, and became inventors, politicians, businessman, scientists, and helped progress our society forward from a time of [gang slayings and NINA]..
By the way, I am [not Irish]."
So your words are very much the essence of any recognition. Again I agree with them and think it foolish to purposely discard "black history" from your studies. But should any kind of recognition be favored over another, and if so, who decides and implements that? Is it causing more harm than good with the way it is presented?
This and my rather long post above I hope stir thought. That was my whole reason for throwing my own questions out there. Not to tear down the label of February or even diminish historic contributions by blacks, but as a plea that we take a step back and see how all the threads weave together into our tapestry and not risk wearing one thinner than others.
Black history month programs, such as this one, are great for uniting a community.
