Sin_City_Superhero: It would've been funny if all of the answers were in Ebonics.
noblewolf: White contestants only get 3 out of 5 correct....
jfivealive: GhostFish: Really, how hard could the $400 one be? No one wanted to even take the slightest gamble on what was probably an easy one?This carbonated beverage was first widely seen in American pharmaceutical stores during the late nineteenth century distributed by Miner's and Lash's
GDubDub: Seriously though, if they had all black contestants, being black-history month, would anyone have been surprised if a category called "Country Clubs and Yachting" was avoided?
Dimensio: The answer is "People who annoy you."
Ficoce: ciberido: Ficoce: This major US religion's major character is a black man, born to poverty, and advanced through life to the title, "King of the Jews".I originally read that as "King of the Jawas," which would make for a rather different story./been playing too much Old Republic, I guess.Still works - but can you phrase that in the form of a question?

Mid_mo_mad_man: 99.998er: Considering that you are from Mid Missouri, I have a feeling you are well beyond the burning & itching butthurt part of the whole Michael Sam thing. After all, he is gay and black.I couldn't care less about Michael Sam love life. Oddly enough my black pals seem more bothered with it then my white pals.

beefoe: Same thing happened a couple nights ago with the category about Cambodian history. So if I were a black Cambodian, I'd be super butt hurt right now!
GrizzlyPouch: You can find a reason to be offended by literally anything.

grath: So I actually watched it. It wasn't awkward in any way really. They are just trying to manufacture outrage and racism where there isn't any.
DROxINxTHExWIND: m00: DROxINxTHExWIND: I know right. What do white people have to feel guilty for?Well, I'm Jewish and my grandparents were foreigners (my great-grandparents fled programs in eastern Europe, when killin' Jews was a thing long before Hitler). Although, I suspect when the revolution comes I'll be up against the wall with the rest of the white people :(Oh, so they were in the country during Jim Crow. My point stands.
DROxINxTHExWIND: AbiNormal: ladodger34: AbiNormal: Buttknuckle: AbiNormal: That was Mondays show. And for the record, I don't give a fark about black history or black history month. Where's Native American history month? Or Asian American history month?You sound like a white baby-boomer.GenXer. Born in '68.We have a Native American history month in November and an Asian history month in May.Why doesn't anyone ever hear about it like we do with black history month? I never hear any tv or radio stations talk about. You never see corporations advertizing their support of anything other than black history month. It's nothing but white guilt.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 t ...
ChuckRoddy: Looks like they generally went left to right, with African American history being on the right. What's the story again?

DROxINxTHExWIND: Mid_mo_mad_man: ladodger34: ladodger34: huchipapa: Face it, the way we have treated black people in this country has been awful.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.Biatch, my grandparents are still alive. The reason my family is in DC is that my grandmother had to leave north Carolina because there were no opportunities for black people and the racism was out of control. So, I'd appreciate it ifyou'd eat a dick, but I want you to read a book while you do.
Texas Gabe: 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!I've been called a greasy thug before, and it never stops hurting.

robbiex0r: Isn't the far right category usually last to go?
Slaxl: "LOLOLLLOLLOLLOOOOLOLOLOL"It should be against the law to write "lol" in articles that aren't about internet abbreviations, let alone that embarrassing mess she shat upon the screen. I know this is Jezebel but come on, at least try and pretend to be writers.
kvinesknows: Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: l. The question about the first black regiment was really hard, IMO. I've never heard that, ever, and it was given has the second easiest.there was a major motion picture about it....
djwebb1127: In fairness, there was a black girl contestant named Kanesha from Oakwood University. Unfortunately she was competing against a WASPY Canadian girl from Harvard and an Asian math major from Berkeley. I was pulling for her but it was hopeless.
styckx: Wow.. The headline doesn't do that any justice.. I thought maybe it was going to embellish it a bit.. Nope.. They seriously just avoided the entire category.
Itstoearly: How cute, manufactured outrage.
kvinesknows: how is this a fail?
Mid_mo_mad_man: It's not black history or white history it's just history. Enough with this pc garbage.
Nana's Vibrator: They all avoided it, but it really seemed to irk the girl on the right named Whitey. Between rounds she indignantly asked aloud why we don't have White History Month, and then actually complimented Alex on learning the language when he came into our country.
