My greatest pet peave is revisionist history. Essentially, taking the evidence, and throwing it away to create a lie to push a political agenda. Such a text is called "Black Athena" which postulates that all Western Culture was stolen from Africa. Aditional problems I have with teaching history in a public setting regarding black history, which always leads to the issue of slavery, is that inconvenient truths are left out. For instance, the trade triangle of slaves and rum leaves out the fact that African tribes would conquer an capture other African tribes and sell them to the Dutch traders. All deptictions of slavery somehow like to leave that little aspect out, solely focusing on the actions of the white Westerners and not the complicity in this by other Africans.

Thus, the whole political agenda of attempting to lie or obsfuscate about the historical record is dangerous and not ignorant, since it is done with full intent-stupid.

At one point I was dead set against that sort of stuff. My opinion changed somewhat after taking a couple of obligatory African American studies in college. I was exposed to a lot of material that properly belonged in an American History text. In my days high school texts would contain references to slavery and MLK Jr. in regarding blacks. For a long time history was 'Whitewashed'.

It's all American history not specifically black history, so I don't get it. IMO, it separates instead of uniting so I don't get it. I think if anyone was going to do anything about getting rid of it, little O would be a rational choice and something I could actually get behind him on, but I doubt that will ever happen.

This is a touchy subject, so please keep it civil.
My wife (who is an engineer) wonders the same thing in regards to women being considered a minority in some cases. According to her, she has the same rights under the Bill of Rights as me and it's demeaning to separate her out because of gender. She feels it does a real number in delegitimizing things she accomplishes because there is a tinge of perceived protection, favoritism or entitlement that distracts from her actual achievements sometimes. Basically, she feels as long as women are given specialized status or treatment, you wind up with the "separate but equal being inherently unequal" thing. She also feels you can't effectively legislate an icehole into hiring or liking someone they don't want to hire, like, promote, etc... I see her point and feel the same way about most of what are considered protected divisions of people.

Black history month also addresses those who only think of African blood people as lazy, welfare loving, fornicators to remind those other Americans about black's achievements throughout American history and society.

It may well be overkill, but guys we celebrate, for example, Christmas and Independence Day every year even though most of us pretty much know the story.

Can we find a few congressmen who will publicly identify their antecedents as PWT and propose legislation to recognize and study this under appreciated minority?

Since the focus group meetings, congressional hearings, and studies needed to support the need for this month or maybe even a new national holiday will take years, I despair that I will not be around when the legislation is finally signed by the president.
This has got to be a joke right? We already are forced to "celebrate the achievements" of a certain race while no other races are represented. On top of that you propose to have a month that points out what many consider to be the worst of the white race?

Its all a bunch of crock.

Oh and what about the black caucus?

Why ?

If any white came up with something equivalent for whites there would be an outcry on all the liberal run media outlets.

Makes no sense to me.
NAAWP does exist, it is however terrorist, security threat group.

This makes no sense. In the biggest study ever conducted on this type of thing, diversity is shown to have very negative effects.

"the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as they do in the most homogenous settings."

Anyway here is the article:

http://www.boston.com/news/globe/ide..._of_diversity/

Do not interpret this as me saying one people group is in any way superior to another, I believe everyone is equal. I just don't think the best idea is always forcing everyone to interact with each other.

I have found that the real world is a tough place for humans. Humor is a primary survival mechanism; it helps keep the grey cells agile.

As a young person I had more interaction with PWT than other folks at the bottom of the food chain. So I have some residual sympathy and appreciation for their situation. How do our children not become snobs except through continuing education?

I will be glad when we get to the point where we can associate with whom we please, we do not have to be forced to associate with people we would rather not associate with. If people would just follow the golden rule and treat others as they would like to be treated, all of this would be a non issue. One thing that I would like to suggest is that in all government applications for "whatever" only a person's name and other information such as address, telephone number, email etc be gathered. It should be illegal to collect information such as race and sex on ANY application for government benefits, this would make the playing ground level for all.

Okay, first of all...I am NOT prejudiced or racist....
I hate everyone equally....no preferences....

Until EVERYONE grows up and quits acting like a whiny bunch of *****es, there is going to be racism....Black history month....hispanic history month....white history month....

Who gives a flyin' ****** anyway?? Our schools USED to teach AMERICAN history and WORLD history and (STATE) history....
What the **** happened....oh wait....PC happened and pu**y ass politicians who didn't have the balls to stand up to the lobbyists and the mother *******ing liberal agenda.....

The libtards finally got a black man in the WH and they are STILL *****ing and whining.....
And ANYONE who doesn't agree with the GD libtards and the left is a ******ing RACIST?!?!?!?! REALLY!!!!!

Let's see....
Unprecedented government debt
Unprecedented government spending
Unemployment at record levels for record time frames
A gallon of gas costing more than a gallon of milk
China well on its way to being the world's financial cornerstone
Idle oil wells in the U.S. because of BHO's moratorium on drilling
Record levels of foreclosures and bankruptcy in the U.S.

Looks to me like the first step to a socialist republic is well on its way...

"Destroy the economy and confidence of a democracy, and socialism will brew out of the quagmire...". Don't know who said it or where I read it, but it is happening....right here...right now....and George Soros is LOVING IT!!!! It fuels his secret "I'm gonna live forever" machine.....

Personally, I am sick and mother ****ing tired of all the GD diversity...the PC'ness....tryin' to make everyone happy?!?!?!?! again....

REALLY?!?!?!?!?

Little leaguers lose....get used to it....
Life ain't fair....get used to it.....
Our forefathers had slaves....get used to it...
Children get sick and die...get used to it.....
If you want something, get a MF'ing JOB and *******ing EARN IT!!!!!!!
The libtards and dems complain like whiny little *****es when they don't get their way.......I'll never get used to it....

And yet, in this country, party whores can kill their children, celebrities get away with murder, and get this...anybody watch Fox today?

A 95 year old cancer patient was searched by the TSA today, and her daughter burst into tears over it, which then triggered an "alarm" with the TSA agent....she was asked to remove her mother's adult diaper because the TSA agent said there was something suspicious on her mother's leg...it was a medical appliance for her chemotherapy.....

There was a time in this country when anyone asking to strip search a 95 year old woman would have resulted in a corpse swinging from a tree somewhere...NO THAT IS NOT RACIST!!!! Lynch mobs were around LONG before this racist bull**** was.....THAT is how justice was served in the wild west....and remember....there were free black landowners in the mid 1800's. They did NOT rally for equality or sue someone for a racial slur....they took care of their land and thier farms and most of all....their families....

Instead, the TSA served up a lame ass statement for damage control to protect the decision of their agent....

IMHO that "agent" needs to be reprimanded with a tire iron.....

I am all for some security on the airlines, but a 95 year old cancer patient is going WAY too far.....

HEY....TSA Agent....IT'S CALLED DISCRETION YOU *******!!!!
I hope you ****your pants every ******ing day....

God help us, this country needs an enema......



Sorry gang....sorry GT'ers, but it has gone far enough.......

Just my $.02 worth....

Soooo....

When"white" history was taught/celebrated the blacks were upset..........
Now that "black" history is taught/celebrated the whites are upset.............

Seems like a no win

As far as all the black centered groups mentioned above I am not sure they are any different than all of the groups based on nationality, religion or anything else that are everywhere......I see no difference between the JDL, the NAACP or the IADLC etc.....
