    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
    Firstly, being black does not equate to being from simply one country.

    Secondly, my nation of heritage was indeed enslaved for more than a century by the British, with certain members of my immediate family being freedom fighters. I still think it's a ridiculous concept. What's your point?

    My country WAS colonised and enslaved actually. But I have nothing to do with that.

    Why do you think you are eligible to your ancestors contributions?

    Black history month is such a dumb concept I cringe everytime i hear it.

    I remember my time in school my black friends just felt awkward all the time.

    Blacks are treated the same way as people who question the 6 million Holocaust.


    You can't say Jews sold and owned slaves. Off limits. Hate speech. At least they aren't jailed for it.

    Lol, as if it's a celebration. It's not Christmas, and no one cares about it anyway, I don't know any black people who care either
