Here we are again, the 1st of February and the start of Black History Month, and once again I am going to speak my mind on Black History Month. Here is a re-post from last year regarding my thoughts about Black History Month, I re-post the very same article every year.
Nothing has changed in MY estimation! Enjoy…
Time to end Black History Month? 2013
Should Black History Month itself fade into history?
Many have long argued that African-American history should be incorporated into year-round education. Now, claims that Black History Month is outdated are gaining a new potency, as schools diversify their curricula and President Barack Obama’s election opens a new chapter in the nation’s racial journey.
“If Obama’s election means anything, it means that African-American history IS American history and should be remembered and recognized every day of the year,” says Stephen Donovan, a 41-year-old lawyer.
Ending “paternalistic” observances like Black History Month, Donovan believes, would lead to “not only a reduction in racism, but whites more ready and willing and able to celebrate our difference, enjoy our traditions, without feeling the stain of guilt that stifles frank dialogue and acceptance across cultures.”

Time to end Black History Month?
End Black History month? African-American history?
What needs to end is ANY reference to hyphenated-American ANYTHING. The Black community calls it ‘Black History Month’ when it’s convenient but the article immediately goes to the African-American reference. I seriously doubt that even 5% of the Blacks in America are African, so, WHY do we insist on this politically correct BS by using an incorrect terminology? African-American? I don’t think so.
The majority of MY family came from England, France and Germany, they migrated to Canada and eventually to Mississippi and Louisiana. I am NOT a European-American. I am an AMERICAN, nothing more, nothing less.
Blacks in America have made great contributions to this nation. Hispanics have made great contributions to this nation. Asians have made great contributions to this nation, as have Europeans and any other group that came here, save perhaps the moonbat Muslims.
I have a serious problem with Blacks being given a ‘Black History Month’, I find it offensive, I find it very racial as a matter of fact, and I feel discriminated against.
What would Blacks call it if we had ‘White History Month’? Anyone want to venture a guess there?? I already KNOW what would happen. $harpton and Je$$ie Jack$on would be on the march. The NAACP would be filing suit and there would be uprisings all over this USA, because WHITE people want to celebrate THEIR history and heritage with a dedicated and specific month.
I have always heard it said, ‘if you’re not part of the solution, you are a part of the problem’, and those are some very powerful words. America is supposedly ‘the melting pot of the world’. Yet far too many races and various nationalities seek to change America into a clone of the land and culture they left to come here. If their homeland and culture was so great, why did they come to America in the 1st place? And if America isn’t now their HOMELAND, how can they attach the title AMERICAN after ANY hyphenated name?
I ask you, just WHO are the real racists and bigots? Damn if I can remember getting so much as one penny for college from the United Caucasian College Fund. If we don’t all believe that we are equal, if we don’t ALL participate in the celebration of AMERICAN history, then we are nothing more than what I fear we are so very close to becoming, an America reminiscent of the Balkans, with the ethnic cleansing that will be a certainty.
Yeah, I know, I’m a racist. Go ahead and say it, I hear it ALL the time. But the fact of the matter is this, I am as proud of being a WHITE American as any Black person is of being a Black American. I’m as proud of American history, even the bad times, as is any American. ALL Americans should be proud of OUR history, but when I stand and express MY pride, I am labeled a racist.
If I was the one that called for an end to ‘Black History Month’, if I was the one that founded WHITE Entertainment Network, if I was the one that started an all WHITE, United White Folks College Fund, I would be castigated all over the blogosphere as the most vile bigot alive. Why is it that only WHITE people can be labeled as racists?
America 1st, for AMERICANS. And if you don’t consider yourself to be an AMERICAN, and nothing else, then this is not your home! You are nothing more than a visitor and it’s time for you to go to whatever nation it is that you consider to be your home. I’m sure they will welcome you with open arms.
So, to those that disagree, and there will be those that do, call me a racist, a caveman, a knuckle-dragger, a bigot, whatever your current buzzword may be, but I personally am very tired of being the one that has to acquiesce to the political correctness that is about to kill our nation.
