Does outrage have to be a national sport in this country?  Everybody has got to be outraged about something.

I was in a book store, back when they existed, and a black couple was giving a employee grief about the Black History book selection not being up in the front of the store, but tucked away in back.  And that was true. It was in back, along with all the other history books, in the farking History section.

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 ...

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 if
you'd eat a dick, but I want you to read a book while you do.




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.
