Why do some white people get mad because blacks have BLACK HISTORY MONTH?
Many whites are not angry about the existence of a Black History Month, but by the way it’s carried out. In practice, Black History Month (and Black Studies, etc.) is a bitch-fest to stoke anger, not a celebration or an educational forum. In practice, the purpose is to instill in young black people the anger that fueled the protests of previous generations. In practice, Black History Month is focused on hatred and differences. If language of anger and hatred can be left to the past, then cultures can come together. If not, then whites will continue to complain about Black History Month, and similar movements.
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live. You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day. You have Black History Month. You have the NAACP. You have BET. If we had WET (white entertainment television) we’d be racists. If we had a White Pride Day you would call us racists. If we had white history month, we’d be racists. Blacks are allowed in Miss America…but they still have Miss Black America. If we had Miss White America, we’d be racists. If we had an organization for only whites to “advance” our lives, we’d be racists. If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships, you know we’d be racists. In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists. You are proud to be black, and you’re not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.
