    Whether someone wants to participate in it or not, will still leave problems in equality.

    If you're not going to give everyone they're own day/month, then why bother giving anyone a day/month at all if you're aiming for equality? Why not just have everyday be everyone's day.. universal history from every culture & race, and not just one month that's dedicated to one race of people.. Otherwise you'll get protests, and people making their own parades because they don't get a day or a month to honor their race/culture's history.

    Other minorities speaking up with "What about us? .. We were treated just as badly as them, had important speakers and inventors... and we don't get our own period of appreciation?"

    I myself personally, am not that bothered by it.. But I do see it as one more thing that makes us less equal. Raise the awareness of everyone's history to an equal level, a special day or month for one certain group of people, is not really necessary.

    There's people out there who object to it to an extent.. King, I'm sure, was not the only activist against racism and and a speaker for equality.. maybe the most successful one, but not the only one.

    Bruce Lee didn't get his own day... did Ghandi get his own day globally? What about Harriet Tubman? I personally am not bothered by King having his own day, but these are things people will bring up, sometimes regardless of who the person is.

    Exactly. An entire black history month means we should have a Micheal Jackson Day and an O.J. Simpson Day.

    And for the record, I'm against a Gay Pride Week as well.

    And I haven't even gotten any hugs off Hug a Korean Day, so I'm not assed about that either.

    While I get what you guys are saying, some of you are sounding extremely racist with some of your comments, their are definitely better ways to voice your opinions; some of you are being downright disrespectful and I think chances are it's because it's the internet and no one is scared to speak their mind no matter how racist it sounds.

    For example Brawny saying: "I don't understand how we've shaken off our stereotype and they haven't. I think it's because we can speak English.."

    That is extremely disrespectful and i'm damn certain you wouldn't say that to my friends. Why? Because you know saying that minorities can't speak English is racist.

    I do agree Black History Month is hurting more than it's helping because it's actually adding to the division. You think young kids born in these times even know about racism? They do not know it until they are taught it. You see white supremacy folk on TV teaching their kids to be racists and now they absolutely hate Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Jews, etc. simply because their parents taught them that. Then when kids are in elementary school they start to learn about black history month and it starts to make a divide because now it seems like blacks are underneath the whites.

    I agree 100% with Morgan Freeman and I even once saw some show on TV talking about Spanish Week or some bullshit like that and it pisses me off that Hispanics people would want some stupid week devoted to the Hispanics. That just makes us seem lower than others.

    There are ignorant folks from all walks of life and this thread alone proves that. You can voice your opinion without actually feeding to the fire (being racist yourself).
