There is research out there that shows a correlation between stereotyping and a lack of awareness of other people (skin color) in important positions. As a teacher, I am grateful for different heritage months because it allows me to find activities and information to share with my children. Respect for all makes a melting pot not ignoring.

Be certain to avoid those pesky slave oriented math questions.

[Just need to correct something in your comments, hon.. It was Thomas EDISON, not Jefferson, that invented the light... Jefferson was a president... Edison was an inventor...

Honestly...there is a Hispanic, Asian, Black, White, and Women's History Month. I hate when white Americans (even though i'm part white) say that no one gets the attention in history but blacks. I'm sorry but I am black and we still do not get enough credit and people do not know how much we have contributed to this nation. We made the traffic light, the washer, the dryer, the filament for the light (not Thomas Jefferson but rather his slave, who he took all the credit for). The University of Virgina, which Thomas Jefferson built has not even said thank you to the many slaves that he forced working to build that university. So please do not give me that shit. We deserve more credit than what we are given. The only people that get credit in the school system are Harriet Tubman, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King. What about Jesse Jackson? What about Madame C.J. Walker? What about Thurgood Marshall? What about Barack Obama? What about Emmitt Till? What about the surgeon that did the first open heart surgery (I can't think of his name right now)? What about so many people that have been ignored in the history books. Now tell me about that. It is just like white people to give us the shortest damn month out of the whole year. We need to learn more about black people doing things because black kids don't know anything about their culture because we were slaves. I have to pro-black parents (even tho one is half-white) but they always told me to be proud of my black side. They taught me all the things that I'm telling you about. So steve you can shove it!<quoted text>


This is all I can hear here; another Black person that just can't move on in hopes of living equally. That means NO special interest groups, none, including you and your incessant whining.
Join America as an American, not an African. I am of Irish heritage but I and others like me are Americans not Irish/Americans. So get a grip and join the rest of us and let's move on together working to build America not suck it dry. Please stop your whining, crying, looting, shooting, stealing, lying, hating, killing, punching old caucian women, invading folks homes, raping, etc. Stop it!
You dersrve nothing special, nothing!
You already have as much and more opportunity than I ever had, ever....
Just because I am fed up with the black never ending story don't you dare call me racist but you may refer to me as blacked out, over it.

I don't think there should be a month for every ethnicity out there in the world. Remember, race is a made up word by white people to give an excuse for slavery. There is no race, the term everyone here should be referring to is ETHNICITY. Are we really classifying people by our skin color? There are albino blacks out there in the world, and the pigment in their skin make them white, but their parents are both black, so would you consider them white, or black? You can see skin color, but you can't see the pigment in your skin. Your skin turns the color it is based on wherever in the world you live. Africans who lived in Sub-Saharen had darker skin color than White European, because they were closer to the equator. Therefore, the Africans became black because of the hot sun, and it got passed down. I don't think people should judge on skin color, sex, or even ethnicity. Judge by how the person is personally. Don't judge what you can see, judge what you don't see and their traits. ANNNNd the last thing we need is 12 different races, because I could one day claim that I am purple, and have my own cult of people. While ethnicity makes us diverse, we don't need to be that diverse to have different months for all our skin color.
