Well, February is almost over and with it another Black History Month goes in the record book. One thing that’s always disturbed me about Black History Month are the people, and I have to admit, to my chagrin that some of them are my friends, who say in all seriousness, “When’s ‘White History Month?'”
That’s when I say, “Have you ever heard of March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December or January, asshole?”
Not only did blacks get the short end of the stick when they were dragged to the western hemisphere, they also got the short month of the calendar for their contributions to the history of the United States, too.
One response to “White History Month?”
When I hear insensitive racial remarks from otherwise good people, my first reaction is they’re one brick short of a load. I don’t know how else to explain such a blind spot in their humanity, unless they’ve been reading Ayn Rand.
