    It is not a month of exceptionlism but a time of learning and reflection. It began as a week in the 1910s to remember and honor many black people who were written out of history.

    Without this month devoted to learning about black contributions, sacrifices and accomplishments, kids (and ignorant adults) won't know a large part of history built on the backs of one of the most undervalued and mistreated groups of people in the modern and old world. Knowing black history is knowing history! Heightened awareness makes us ALL (black, white, brown, yellow, red) more enlightened and who doesn't want to be more enlightened? Knowing what blacks have done for this country would do wonders in eliminating the ignorance of racism.

    Every month is white history month. It's extremely privileged of you to not realise this.

    any one else find it odd he's trying to belittle this persecuted minority but trying to distract from this.

    I actually had no idea they had a month. Interesting. How come there's no banner on the front page?
