^^^I don't see anything she was right about.

But white people aren't the only people with fu*ked up views on race issues. All races have them, it's just that White people have the privelage of always being on top in America, so they can do the sh*tting and not receive.

i'll boycott black history month just on the principal that its on the shortest month of the year. And SOME white people are ignorant to what black people go through, but on the flip side SOME black people doesn't know what White people go through. the bigger problem is how the word racism is used. Every time a black person goes through a problem its racially motivated. When a white person
goes through the exact same problem they don't holler racism, they handle the situation. Don't get me wrong there racism still exist, but nothing like in the 50's and 60's.
As Blacks we are the only race that is unified, we distrust one another, get jealous because one doing better than the others, and want to k!ll one another over some bullsh*t. i was watching the movie Animal. i was curious about the willie lynch papers. i looked on the internet and read them. Even though this was written over 250 years ago. that mentality is hard wire in SOME our brains. Yaw should read it and think about how todays Afro-Americans act

no because u simply wouldnt be able to as your knowledge of britain is far inferior to my knowledge of america.

and when did i tell ppl how 2 live their lives? i gave my opinion.

@ "our people died for black history month" no they didnt, they wernet thinking, we better get our own tv channel out of this and a month where people learn about their history, tehy were campaigning for civil rights, whcih every one has now.

is it not racist to say the only time black people will learn about their history is if a special month is set aside for them?
Your right but even if i had superior knowledge of Britain culture is it my place to tell Britain's want months they should celebrate or what should they get over.

or the atrocities of the past no i don't believe i have that right but because you know about American culture.

you obviously believe that gives you the right to tell us what month we should celebrate or tell us we should go about living our life and that we should shut up about slavery.

and instead of trying to be smart you understood my point of course they weren't thinking that they will receive a month or television channel but that is what we received for there death.

should we have more than a month yes is a month a perfect solution to learn about African Americans history no but its what we have and having one month is better than no month.

Asian americans have there own month ,native Americans have there own ,Latinos americans have there own they even have a parade in new york.

if you take away ours or boycott anything that is determined for blacks but others can celebrate you should also try to eradicate other celebrations or other things that are set aside for only one month.

is it fair that other races can celebrate things or have things named after there race but when blacks have it there is an uproar over it.

She makes some good points; however, she seems to believe that racism doesn't exist. When it comes to doing the right thing, asking ourselves, who has it the worst-is implausible. We should judge each case separately. Did the American Indians have to pretty bad? Yes. Did the Jews during World War II have it bad? Yes. Did Blacks have it pretty bad during slavery, the reconstruction period, and during the civil rights era? Yes. So when we look at the blacks plight, there is something unique in it. Westerners erased our culture- (any African American remember where their ancestry is from? or how to speak any of the 100 plus African languages?)-and built a country off of the work and blood of African Americans. Do some research...even after the civil war ended, whites put blacks in the worst conditions possible so that they could not raise up and do better for themselves. Fast forward one-hundred and forty-two years, and we still have the same stuff. Look at the public schools in the inner-city. When you try to get a job who makes the decision? Does anyone ask themselves why Ghettos exist?
When you read the history books, do you read about the Yoruba tribe, or the major contributions that came from western Africa, or about the major contributions of other African Americans aside from Malcolm or Martin? No. Do you read about the American Indians? Yes. Do you read about the Jews? Yes. But you do not read about the era when Greece, Rome, and other prominent western civilizations depended upon Africa for their source of knowledge. Look at the cases around the country of injustice towards African Americans and ask if it happens to American Indians or the Chinese, or to the Jews? Does a Jew get shot 21 times because cops believe he supposedly pulled out a gun? Does an American Indian have one his siblings dragged at the end of a truck because a white man didn't like the way he was trying to protect his land from the nearby bank? Look in the newspapers in the small sections that are not displayed on the front page. Cases like this are posted everywhere! Whites are so quick to say racism doesn't exist anymore-but White, western, males rule the world-of course in their eyes, they won't see it! Black history month is proliferating the separation of the races-but if America would teach our history in conjunction with everyone else's we wouldn't need a month to recognize it.

U know why no other race is compaining u dumb bi*ch? Because every other race has received reparations. U shouldn't speak on something u know nothing about.

and what reparations have the native americans receive?
or the Jews?
or Chinese?
or the Japanese?

Truth be told, every race has underwent oppression in some manner or another..

i don't mind the concept of b.e.t..there are certain channels that speak to different groups of people..fox news for example..

but the concept of black history month..I never got it. Why not just learn it as it goes, just like learning about the history of every other race?

People would take her opinion more seriously if she was black, and that in itself is something thats wrong with society.

Logically speaking, is a month of learning about what went on before, during, and after slavery really considered reparations?

I'd rather see something more positive than that..of course is it important to know the past, but why devote a specific month to it?
