After seeing all these comments let's try to get back on the topic of BHM. I do not believe that it should not be mandatory. Although I think all etnicities should know how they contributed to this country, but none should be forced. I hope this doesn't sound like I am being closed minded. I just do not like the word mandatory. ( only intelligent answers please)

You are so wrong the people that are dead and gone have contributed so much to the history of African Americans or Americans period. They should be honored in each and every way.
I do not celebrate Black History month in February becasue to me it is plan silly when I know I am black so I celebrate it each and every day. I do not need a month, the shortest, to celebrate th econtribution of our people.
So name some of these so-called "contributions", besides contributing to the crime rate of every city they're in.

<quoted text>I said i scrolled down on this thread and i can see most of the comments are people who do no know anything about BHM. Your posting tell me you do not know why BHM is in February.If someone think you are stupid, why open up your mouth and remove all doubt.
Since you seem to be the "expert" on BHM, please educate us on the "true" meaning of BHM.

And don't forget anything, tell us ALL the facts.

Let's see what YOU know about BHM.

You are on a computer and you are to lazy to research how BHM begin. Before you come to this site with mockery and racist comments you knew how and why it got started. Maybe you do not know about Google,Yahoo and other search engines.

Do you intend to answer my question or do you not have the mental capability to do so? Again I will ask escuchan por favor. What did you all accomplish that would be considered history that I and others should be forced to learn about? I see no black history worth learning about. I mean how many times can we learn about peanutbutter. Please explain. The different screen names is a result of there being one computer and many of us using it, so in other words to simplify it for you, you mental midget one computer different people using it, thus the different screen names ok.

I do not believe there are 10 different dummies using the same computer making dumb postings. If you can find this site with out my help, I am sure if you want to know the truth about BHM you can do it. From your posting I see your purpose is not about BHM but advancing your racist opinion.

I don't care what you believe. This is a college dorm. Of course you wouldn't know about college all you do is whine and cry and that fact that your a darkie who runs away from education. Yes we are racists against whining crying lazy monkies like you and so what. I answered your question coonerachi why didn't you answer mine? Could it be because black history is nothing?
