    Black History Month

    I remember discussing this somewhere, but I don't remember if it's here. With the crash and everything, and it being February anyway, may as well start it.

    I personally think it's a useless month that hurts more than helps. If blacks are equal to everyone else in every way, why do they need their own special month?

    I've seen bulletin boards put up around campus of "inventions of black people". Including masking tape and some brands of makeup.

    Who gives a flying feck if it was a black person that made masking tape?

    Why not just remember who invented the important things like cars and televisions and not worry about what colour they were? Oh right, because they were all white.

    Because the majority of ignorant people in the world are white and need to be set straight.

    Well, if we're going to be fair.. let's add.

    Asian History Month
    Hispanic History Month
    European History Month
    etc


    I mean, African people shouldn't be the only ones to have their own History Month.. :| 'tis unfair.

    So what, there are no ignorant black people?

    Yes, some people could learn to appreciate this sort of thing a bit more, but we do not need a month dedicated to the subject. If there's a black history month, why is there no white history month? Or months for Asians, Arabs, Native Americans, Polynesians, etc.? I mean, we're all supposed to be equal, so we should all get months, right?



    I never add friend codes.

    I saw a survey once where they were talking about minority something or another.

    They grouped Hispanics and Blacks together, and Whites and Asians.

    I don't understand how we've shaken off our stereotype and they haven't. I think it's because we can speak English...

    I agree with Morgan Freeman on the issue.

    What?
    I'm pretty sure there are plenty of ignorant black people(and all other races). Otherwise the word "nigga" would no longer be in use.

    There are definitely ignorant people that are within all "races", not just one. I agree with Morgan Freeman's view on it, the whole thing is just rather unnecessary cause all it does is add more problems to the issue of racism.

    I'd say get rid of it, and just have a focus on what everyone has done in history, regardless of the color of their skin.
