    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.

    What about Islamic History month? Indian History month? Chinese History month? Latin American History month? Womens History month? Gay History month? Transgender History month? Transracial History month? Mixed-Race History month? Trans-species History month?

    Damn, running out of months... we need more months in the calender!

    It should really be called African American Appreciation month tbh. I think Black history month is a very silly concept

    We should also perhaps have a 'Brown history month'. I mean, the Indian subcontinent did help a great deal during the Raj (oh, and curry). How about 'Pagan history month'? Picts, anyone?

    I'm so glad this doesn't exist. I'd find it quite patronising if someone tried to relegate the contributions of my race to a single month.

    Not really, Black people had about a century wiped off so it's only fair we remind ourselves of the contributions they've made - pretty ignorant of you, im sure if your country was slaved for a century+ and you had a month dedicated to it, you wouldn't be saying that
