    That time of the year is almost here. The most annoying year of the month, where all it is , is black this black that we were slaves. now im not a racist person i have black friends and like black people. But why do we still need this month, its retarded. Black history is just a part of American history, yet people still cant let it go. Everything else gets thrown into American history but black history... Let it go and be told like everything else that went wrong with this country..dont take this as some crazy red neck racist ass pig ranting either..

    To make them feel better.

    But seriously, it's just there to remind us of the African Americans who helped shape this country.

    The Civil War was actually a very interesting topic for me in History last year...

    It is a way to never let the "white-man" forget what we did. >_>

    Besides, if we took it out now, who knows how many blacks or people in general would protest and be pissed O.O

    no BH month is dumb. people need to get over shit in order to move past "racism". i never done a black man harm but they get taught otherwise and i get oppressed because someone elses ancestors died to free their people. wheres native american history month? they are still oppressed in this country.
    I'm a fag.

    meh, this belongs in the debate section, me thinks.

    Now, my opinion, being an African American myself, is that BH month is useless. Just brings up topics/facts/opinions that are not necessary.

    Id rather have a month just dedicated to history.

    It is just to remind people of the bad things that happened to black people who have become a major part of our society (president). I think it's fine just as long as they don't put all that black pride bullshit around me since I get enough of that.

    We can't get too much pride into every race or else it'll take up every day of of the calendar. Our calender (USA) is based on what is most important. I think black people month is importance since slavery. It's their time, I think they should have it. It's not going to get changed so I think this debate about Black History month is over and should be closed.

    I never knew there was a black history month. Theres virtually no black people where i live. But a theres a lot of muslims. They have no month dedicated to their history and the supression they experienced from white people.

    But i'd say it is useless. it'll only encourage radicals on both sides to shout abuse and act like retards.
