Rapmaster2000: The only black history is slavery, MLK, and The Jackson Five.  I'm tired of these PC THUGS trying to shove Long Dong Silver in my face!

This is a made up game show controversy, but it does bring up the point that when you decide to break down history to a category of people like black history or women history, people who don't fit into those categories are less likely to care about it especially if they have to go out of their way to learn it outside of the normal history class. Stop categorizing history and just teach it as a fact in history and more people will know about it. If you make it a special type of history, university class attendance has already proven it'll usually be ignored by people outside of that category if it not a requirement.

//I was that white guy in the black history class in college that was constantly asked by other students, "Why would you take this class?"

Yeah, I'm pretty pissed at the behaviors of others from 100, 200, 300 years ago.   But in the last 50 years or so we've more than made up for it....

And my personal behavior has been exemplary.....

We've made progress, no doubt. But to say that the last 50 years makes up for nearly 4 decades of crappy treatment is precisely the reason why we need a black history month. And even during their best 50 years in this country, we still find ways to be shiatty towards black Americans.

Should say 4 centuries of bad treatment.




No one alive today should feel bad about what happened 400 years ago. Nor should anyone demand an apology. It's in the past move on. The so called legacy of slavery is holding no one back. Get over it and grow up.

My mom reads a book by a black author every year in February.

Lol, I'm whiter than sour cream in a snowstorm, in Sweden listening to old school Depeche Mode. I'm amazed that there aren't the usual 'Zimmerman Is God/Obama Is The Devil' folks on this thread.

Again, what has recognizing that part of our past and celebrating the contibutions of an oppressed group hurt anyone?

We have treated African Americans as less than human for the vast majority of our history.

DROxINxTHExWIND: NicktheSmoker: Mid_mo_mad_man: It's not black history or white history it's just history. Enough with this pc garbage.

Now, if you could only express that to the school boards we'd be getting somewhere. A little more Marcus Garvey and a little less Betsy Ross.


DROxINxTHExWIND: /Perfect example of why black history needs to be taught more

Well, which is it?  We adequately teach American History or Black History?  Blacks have certainly endured much in this country and have made significant contributions towards its success.

We all want to live as equals here and be afforded the same chances as the next person yet we continue to focus on how we're different.  Blacks blame whites for their lot in life and whites blame blacks for the black lot in life.  JUST STOP.  We are all human beings and our focus should be on advancing the human race, not the black, latino, white, asian, etc. races.  Focus on what we have in common vs. the differences and we're bound to hasten the disparity gap.  The current hypersensitivity only fuels the divide.

I've never experienced life as a black person so I can't speak to how it feels to live that; however, we've all been wronged, slighted and oppressed during our lives yet we move on.  I don't advocate that we forget the past but stop erecting barriers that hinder our ability to move forward harmoniously.

Cry me a river. It must be hard to be the only repressed people in history. I mean it never happen to the Japanese, Irish or any number of other groups. The big difference is that they don't live in the past whining about it.

durbnpoisn: I think this is one of those indicators that some people are entirely too sensative.  I didn't even notice that they had bypassed that category until the end.  And the implication that it is in any way racist is just farking stupid.  This, for the record, is why I didn't care to notice.

The only time I get annoyed about contestants skipping categories is when it's one that I know I could sweep, like "animals" or "Science Fiction".  They save it till last, and don't have time for all five.  That pisses me off.


The most savvy Jeopardy contestants jump around from category to category and start with the lower half of the board to keep their opponents off-balance, but the show's staff actually encourages them to take one category at a time and go from top to bottom, because it's easier on the technicians and audiences seem to like it that way. Hence, entire categories being left for last. The one thing that really bothers me about the students in this tourney is their willingness to follow orders--leaves me concerned for America's future.

Although my favorite subjects are different from yours, I've had the same experience--contestants sticking with boring categories when there was more interesting subject matter in other columns.. On last night's show, one of the contestants seemed to be avoiding "British Literature," even though she was an English major (she won anyway, with a final jeopardy question in Physics: go figure).

Categories I like: the arts, history, 20th-century pop culture.

Categories that are okay: science, government, word games.

Categories that bore me: food, geography, 21st-century pop culture (I'm old!), categories involving brand names (and other obvious product-placement nonsense).

Champ, there is absolutely NO contradiction whatsoever in those two statements. Express to the school boards that the history of contributions made by black poeple should be incorporated into American History.

Some of you like to act as if last week some black person woke up and decided that we needed a "seperate" history class to segregate the history of blacks from the history of America. The REASON Universities and schools began teaching black history is that for generations the contributions of African Americans were purposefully omitted.

ladodger34: skozlaw: Mid_mo_mad_man:
The point I was making it's just history. It's not white history or black history or even Asian history.

Well, yea, except it is. The life of a slave on a southern plantation in 1820 South Carolina is "black history" because it specifically happened to "black people".

You're not smarter or more cultured than everyone else and you're not on to anything here. It's race-based history because it's a period of history based on race. That's what happens when you live in a country that systematizes treatment of a group of people based on their race. The history itself matches the systematization and specific periods and events can be tied directly to the race of the affected people.

But, by all means, keep pretending you've transcended everyone else on this matter if it makes you feel better about yourself.

I wonder how often people have read slave narratives outside of February, if any at all. At most, they've probably read a bit from Frederick Douglass or maybe Equiano. Outside of that, I doubt that many folks just don't have that experience.

Black history month is interesting because their is a cool alternative view of history that rarely is mentioned in high school or survey US history classes in college.

Face it, the way we have treated black people in this country has been awful.

Even more importantly, how does it hurt the majority to have a month dedicated to teaching the history of a group of people that have often been overlooked in text books?


Wake me when we have a Cherokee Month, Navajo Month, Sioux Month, Apache Month, Anisazi month, etc. etc.

I know right. What do white people have to feel guilty for?

Look, ma'am. Black people didn't rise up and demand that whites acknowledge black history so that we could stick it to you and make you read about Nat Turner. It was originally a way for blacks to injet some sense of pride into our communities by talking about and learning some of the great accomplishments of black people in America. For so long, schools have reduced the role that blacks played in America's development to slavery, peanut inventions and a speech by Martin Luther King.

You obviously don't get that the history being sold to you has a purpose. The tales of heroism by the morally superior white soldiers in wars, the stories of white leaders who, led by GOD, made important decisions about the direction of the country. All of that was sold to you so that you would develop a sense of nationalism which they could later exploit when they decided to go to war for monetary reasons. You probably never realized it but all of the country's "heroes" looked like you. Meanwhile, you tell the little black kids that during the times that these "HEROES" were doing heroic things, people like you just picked cotton and sang. Then, you all get pissy and you don't understand why there were black kids who didn't stand up for the pledge because they aren't filled with the same pride for their country that you are.

Teaching black history isn't just about giving black people a month to shove it in whitey's face. Its so much more that has nothing to do with you. Stop being so vain.

You obviously don't get that the history being sold to you has a purpose. The tales of heroism by the morally superior white soldiers in wars, the stories of white leaders who, led by GOD, made important decisions about the direction of the country. All of that was sold to you so that you would develop a sense of nationalism which they could later exploit when they decided to go to war for monetary reasons. You probably never realized it but all of the country's "heroes" looked like you. Meanwhile, you tell the little black kids that during the times that these "HEROES" were doing heroic things, people like you just picked cotton and sang. Then, you all get pissy and you don't understand why there were black kids who didn't stand up for the pledge because they aren't filled with the same pride for t ...


Wow. You have me completely figured out without ever having met me. I guess there is nothing more I can say.

Mid_mo_mad_man: No one alive today should feel bad about what happened 400 years ago. Nor should anyone demand an apology. It's in the past move on. The so called legacy of slavery is holding no one back. Get over it and grow up.

Inchoate: DROxINxTHExWIND: So, I'd appreciate it if you'd eat a dick, but I want you to read a book while you do.

Hahahahaha this is the best burn I've seen all week.

I don't get why some white people are all put out about Black History Month. UH OH, you might be inspired to learn something new about a historically marginalized group of people! How is that even remotely offensive or divisive?


It isn't. In Canada, I get to hear interesting history stuff on the radio and a lot of music I might not otherwise hear.

What I don't hear are witnesses to crime in mainly black communities reporting what they've seen to police, and nor do I see the breakouts showing the ratio of murders overall versus the ratio of "young black males killing same".

So maybe it's not just whites who might benefit from whatever passes for black history. The black history currently being made is like a racist's wet dream in certain areas. I know poverty plays a role, but so does culture, and some of the cultures involved aren't, shall we say, producing a lot of Tiger Moms.

baconbeard: GrizzlyPouch: You can find a reason to be offended by literally anything.

Sure, but the real trick is finding a way to -- ching ching ching -- cash in on it.


I find that offensive to Chinese-Americans.

pkellmey: God-is-a-Taco: Ficoce:
I have a dream.... that someday someone will ask, "MLK was black? Hmmm, didn't know that."

 I think it's okay to mention race in a situation like MLK and the civil rights movement. I don't know how it'd work otherwise.

So, concerns about skin color is okay for only certain people? I don't see how there could possibly be a problem there.


You're pulling my leg, aren't you? I can't tell when people on the internet are joking or not when websites like Jezebel exist

In Canada, "Black History" is obscure foreign trivia.
