You're not educated enough to be in my math class, but I would imagine that you're the kid that farts.

The bloody napkins are from your nose bleeds. They happen when you forget to wear your helmet. I've told you time & time again. You tend to forget with your brain being in the shape that it's in.

Hoss, you're missing the point. If there was a White History Month or a European-American History Month there would be a minority public outcry the likes of which this country has never seen. There are no exclusively European racial heritage celebrations.
Celebrating somebody because of their race, not their cultural background, is blatant racism. And don't start on celebrations such as St. Patricks Day, which celebrates being Irish, not "white."
The aforementioned logic, and it is logical, applies to awards ceremonies such as the Essence Awards, BET cable television in general, as well as some of the most stringent affirmative action laws. All are racist and the ever-growing list goes on and on.
If we should be celebrating anybody's racial heritage, it is the Native Americans, but our forefathers viciously saw fit to either kill them off or put them in concentration camps, better known as reservations ... as opposed to giving them 40 acres and a mule.
Summary? It's en vogue to be minority in 21st century America; you get what you want, if you want to work for it. If you don't want to work for it, then we'll give it to you anyway because of your color. We just won't say that outright, because that would be ... what ... racist.
And by the way, it hasn't one damn thing to do with "upper East Tennessee at its finest." Saying that makes you culturally biased, because your statement is not based in fact. Part of the real facts include the historical realism that your backwoods "upper East Tennessee" was anti-slavery and supported the Union during the Civil War. So much so, in fact, President Lincoln acknowledged "upper East Tennessee" with praise for fighting against the grain. Get your facts straight.
True, BUT....upper east tennessee was represetned by Andrew Johnson, an opponent of secession, but was OPENLY racist and opposed any rights for newly-freed Blacks when he became 17th president upon Lincoln's death. Get YOUR facts straight....

Keep history alive by telling that history:

Read the greatest 'historical novel', Rescue at Pine Ridge, the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers. The website is: http://www.rescueatpineridge.com This is the greatest story of Black Military History...5 stars Amazon internationally, and Barnes & Noble. Youtube commercials are:
and http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Rescue at Pine Ridge is the epic story of the 9th Cavalry from its Congressional conception in 1866, to the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, 1890. The 7th Cavalry was entrapped again, after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry. This story is about, brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, heroism, redemption and gallantry.

You’ll enjoy the novel that embodies the Native Americans, Outlaws and African-American/Black soldiers, from the east to the west, from the south to the north, in the days of the Native American Wars with the approaching United States of America.

The novel was taken from my mini-series movie with the same title,“RaPR” to keep the story alive. The movie so far has the interest of major actors in which we are in talks with, in starring in this epic American story.

When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at; http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for the US Postal System in Montana, in the 1890's,“spread the word”, http://www.stagecoachmary.net .

Peace.
