I'd say it's problematic to limit the subject to one month.
I don't see how we're ever gonna get past the mentality of difference between races if we keep making a big song and dance about race like this. The aim is surely to end up with race being so insignificant that it isn't even worthy of being mentioned. This is doing the opposite. Same goes for gay pride marches etc.
There is not a white history month in African countries, so a black history month in European countries is a blessing.
Black history is a joke. Its designed to create division and hatred towards the majority culture.
For example, The Arab/African slave dwarfs European involvement both in terms of time frame and scale, yet 'black' history month completely fails to mention it.
Black history is a carefully constructed and fictional narrative. It's not about facts, but agenda.
Also, having one month dedicated to 'African' history is completely absurd in a European country, which has over 14,000 years of 'white' history to choose from.
Black history isn't that interesting imo. It's much more interesting to discuss the political, economic, social reasons why black people were enslaved, how the powers did, the politics involved in dividing up Africa, the relationships between the Imperial countries etc. Learning about how black people were treated as slave always bored me.
It isn't as if blacks are so important to have one month dedicated to their history, and furthermore, why should it be relegated to one month of the year? It should be treated like all other forms of history, read at all times.
It's condescending rather than racist.
Blacks building the pyramids is ridiculous have you seen Africa? at least undeveloped countries. Afrocentrics even believe that Chinese people were once Black.
Morgan Freeman thinks so.
And yet again, a well meaning concept is torn apart...
Seeing as there are people who study slavery on the GCSE History course and not the World Wars...I think not. I don't think we even need black history month.
