    When your Child asks you why there is a "Black History Month" but there isn't a "White History Month", what will be, or has been your Response?

    They are either Learning about it in School, or even on PBS Programming and other Children's Programming.

    What do you Tell them is the Reason that some Races have a Specific Month Dedicated to their History and others do not?

    What should a Parent who is Asked that say in your Opinion, if you have not had the Occassion yourself?

    :)

    peace...

    Tell that white republican child, he already has 11 other months designed for him. It wasn't too long ago, the entire year was his.

    For a long time it was considered impolitic to mention the contributions that Americans of African descent have made to this nation. Black history month is not just for people that have African blood, it is for all Americans.

    The same goes for Native Americans. All one sees in popular mythology is the plains warrior. No mention of the Native American farmer that gave the world many of the most important crops of today, corn, potatoes, and tomatoes being just the beginning of the many domesticated by Native Americans.

    I've been asked that,and it was "Why is there a black history month and not an Appalachian history month?" and I answered "Well honey, we don't need a month to feel good about ourselves, black history month is a sad attempt about feeling good about yourelf and it's pathetic".

    Where's Appalachian History Month ? Our blood and violence ensured America would exist, we destroyed the British Army in the southern colonies. We've sent scientests, scholars, indsturialists, inventers, and politicians that changed the world.

    But where is my month ?
