then why dont they start a asian , latino, native, european,indian, history month? I mean surely everybody has undergone injustice just like the iberians for 600 years .or the chinese under mao . Or stalin .
So why do blacks get a history month?
because some uneducated people have a hard time letting go of the past and cant move on and make their lives better.Its all part of the victim mentality some possess because of their lack of accomplishments

Think of it this way. A Holiday is when you don't WORK, right? So in reality, EVERY day is a black holiday...

Why don't Jews move on from the holocaust...I mean there were 12 million killed, but Jews take all the credit. We real blacks don't give a damn about your black history month. Keep your month of coonery, I celebrate my history all year round.
Because they want to play victim and take advantage of whatever they can for themselves. Everybody is selfish and everybody thinks they are superior to all others.Its not just a "white" thing.Arabs hate indians and filipinos.Chinese hate indians and japanese.Chinese think they did not evolve from africa but on their own.Its good you are proud of your heritage.But just because we are proud of our racial identity and heritage.It does not means we should insult another racial identity or heritage.We cant pick what race we are born into , or how we die.WE CAN HOWEVER CHOOSE HOW TO LIVE, the way we want to live

Let's see....

Asian Pacific American Month (May)- passed in 1992 by Congressional Resolution

National Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15 - Oct 15)- started as a week designated by LBJ but later expanded to a month by Ronald Reagan in 1988 and enacted into law that same year.

American Indian Heritage Month (November)- declared by George H. W. Bush in 1990 and passed into law in November of that same year.

Polish American Heritage Month (October 1991)- proclamation by George H. W. Bush

Italian American Heritage and Culture Month (October 2010)- proclamation by Barack Obama

Need I go on? Acknowledging heritage and culture by designating a specific period of time for special recognition does not have anything solely to do with oppression or the like but rather the recognition of contributions of all groups to the fabric of our society.

Please learn something before opening your mouth.

....it gives them an opportunity to put forward lies and fantasies about bogus blak inventions and dicoveries

Derek that is great to hear but again the school system and the society as a whole.Make a big fuss about black history month and the other months are merely.Oh yeah by the way its "Asian history month". I am not american so thus you cannot assume I do not know what I am talking about .But again it seems black history month gets the most attention from the society as a whole.Where is native american history month? I appreciate your last segment it is about acknowledging contributions of all groups to our society.

I made an error, it's Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month. No, you're not American but please check Pub.L. 102-450. My reference is sound. That's what they call it here in the US.

I already referenced the Native American month in my prior post. What I posted is the official name. Please read.

Why does it offend so you that Black History Month gets the most fanfare? Believe it or not, all those other groups are also acknowledged and celebrated. Certainly more prominently in some places than others but the fact that you don't see it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.

When do-nothings like yourself have a body of work they can point to rather than riding the coattails of others, then you might have room to talk. Until then, carry on punching the clock at your warehouse job.

What's the black "body of work"? Destroying Western Civilization? Wilding? "Knock out King"? "Beat Whitey Night"?

How can you possibly know this? Because I post on Topix?(as do you)
Because you disapprove of my opinions? Or are you simply talking out of your black azz?

Did I strike a nerve? I'm not talking out of my azz anymore than you are...or did you forget your 'Penitentiary is not a University' comment?

You're a lawyer. That officially makes you a part of the problem, NOT the solution.
Or is getting violent felons off with a slap on the wrist virtuous?
