I want to know how "Black History Month" is not considered racist? What about a "White History Month"? Or for that matter, "United White Fund", all White Colleges....do you see where I am going with this. If we are to be a society without bias, the road MUST go both ways....

If you would read the article attached to this thread and do farther research, maybe you can understand. In time past the only black history was limited in the history books. Blacks were denied quality education, so much of these things were started then. Though we are in a different time where blacks can chose other schools, the purpose of the school is not just to educate blacks but educate any persons.

Careful, careful, you will be called a racist. And the weird part about it, the people that will call you a racist will be white.

Any dummy can post on this forum without giving a answer to the question. I gave an answer that can be found without me posting anything. You brought nothing to the table but insults. If you can not answer the question, you should not even be on this thread.

I don't think we care anymore. If you want a white fund (as if that doesn't already exist) then go for it.

And if you think you can make a unique white history month that doesn't already say what the white history books have been saying for centuries well then so be it. You'd still be on this site b/c that ish would be dry as hell.

your history books have been radically re written,
even current books are being re adjusted on a regular basis, The author Clive Cussler in deep siz has an entire chapter removed at the ending because it wasn't politically correct. a good example would be tom sawyer. They dont care what you think they have your children

Racism is a belief that members of one race is superior to other races. So no it's not racist. Believe it or not achievements of those who are not white anglo-saxon and protestant were written out of history.

Black History month is a joke. I have yet to see a significant achievment by a black person. You didn't overcome slavery, Abraham Lincoln & the union soldiers freed you. Jackie Robinson broke the color line in baseball. How? Because a white owner had the courage to buck the league & sign him. Calling these achievments by blacks is like praising the hammer for building the bookshelf instead of the carpenter. If blacks can accomplish so much, then why to they need affirmative action & preferential treatment? Blacks can accomplish nothing without whites propping them up, and where is the gratefulness? Nowhere to be found. You want to see what blacks can accomplish by themselves, look at Africa. Running around naked like savages trying to spear dinner. Look at black "culture" in the US; glorifying crime, ignorance, immorality...What a proud heritage.

There is not person that ever got rich, did it without other people contribution. Some people like to play with words. How do we define achievement. By the acts and deeds of a person or group. Because the accomplishments of black people were left out of the American history books, is what brought about BHM. Whether a black person invented a thing or improved on an already existing thing, that is an achievement. If a black person set a record or break a record that is called achievement. BHM is not about Africa or crime or living conditions. The only reason I see that racist people do not like BHM is they do not want blacks to be proud of black people. That is why they focus on black crime and poor conditions of Africa.

Black history month, the man that did more for the blacks than anyone else was white, he was the abolitionist John Brown, he started the Civil war. He knew he couldn't get out of harpers ferry alive, but his health was failing and he knew he had to do something. To my knowledge the black community has never erected a statue to his memory, but they are going to spend millions to erect a memorial in Washington to some itinerate preacher from Atlanta, that really got nothing done except run off at the mouth on tv. Who got your civil rights, the brothers in the Watts district of LA when they burned it down. Then the white wossy politicians in DC said , you know if these people are willing to burn down their own homes we better start paying attention and they did.

Just because someone doesn't like BHM, as you call it, does not make them a racist. You don't know my heart, I am not a racist. I am married to a wonderful woman who is hispanic, and I am white. I am for EQUALITY. Not special rights, or special treatment, but equal-ity. Black history should be American History. Just like African-Americans should be just plain-freaking Americans. We should focus on unity & not setting up walls to keep us separate. That is racist, and that is the heart of the problem, and that is YOUR fault, not the whites. Shut up about race, and seek instead to blend in with society rather tha speaking ignorant ebonics (translation=improper speech), give up this stupid hip-hop lifestyle that glorifies ignorance, crime and immorality, get married before having kids, and get jobs, and watch racism disappear.

I pointed out why BHM came about. When they were writing American History they should have put all the history in it but they did not. Your post say only achievement of Black people was because of white people. I see that as racist. Because you are married to a Hispanic do not mean you are not racist toward blacks. What is the real reason that whites do not want blacks to have positive role models. All you hear from whites is how bad black are, as if there is no whites that are criminal or thugs or use drugs or uneducated. Backs are not the only ones unemployed. There is not a day, or hour that goes by that there is some white person on this forum calling blacks animals,racist names. When blacks defend themselves, they call it using the race card. Racism will never end as long as one race think they are better than another race.

I agree, black folks are more organized and stick together more than whites, that's how you change things in this country, but if white folks band together it's racist or a hate group. Nowadays whites are the most discriminated against. Look at the tv ads. They make white men look like idiots, if I was a black female I'd be pissed off about all the blacks going after the white women. I'm like u, I'm not racist in the least, but u shouldn't be put down for being any race. Racism will never end.

Hey, I'm all for keeping it real but, I take offense when my daughter's 3rd grade teacher tells her class how white people enslaved blacks and fails to mention that whites got their black slaves FROM OTHER BLACKS. So many black people have such a chip on their shoulder, it's pathetic. Many think they are entitled to special treatment because their ancestors were slaves. It's getting real old. There is definitely reverse discrimination going on in this country. Have you ever listened to a black comic trashing white people? But what happens when a white makes some derogatory comment about blacks? I work with a lot of blacks and many, not all, act like they're so much better than the whites. He!!, they don't even look at you, like you don't even exist. Don't tell me about racists, blacks are far more racist than whites. Many act like they want us to apologize for being white. Oh, and BTW I really don't give a sh!t who calls me a racist or a cracker for that matter, it doesn't hurt my feelings or piss me off at all. Just keeping it real.

Another thing, I'm so f-ing sick of the term "African American". You're either American or not. This same nitwit teacher my daughter had took a point off her test for referring to the first black woman in space as "black" instead of "African American". I was so pissed off I called the teacher, not about a point off of a test, it was the principle. You people had better wake up. They are indoctrinating our children to be ashamed of being born white.

Seriously, you have got to be kidding. " black folks are more organized and stick together more than whites..."

I am not going to try describe how organized white people are but I will say that black folks are not close to being organized.

But, hey, if that absurd thought floats your boat - go with it.
