    Its not for Obama, its for the symbolism of what the day means based on history.

    Hell, we give Columbus a holiday and he never even got to America, he's the most overrated man in history. Give me a break

    Great, lets take all black achievements and put them in February. You know, black achievements have helped this country in all 12 months, not just one month. Black history is all of our history - its called AMERICAN HISTORY

    None of you on this board(including me) are nearly as smart or as impactfull as MLK jr, you best remember that

    Umm, I believe Blacks have a whole month devoted to them


    Is there any month specifcally desginated towards White History?

    Even though it is kinda amusing how they agve blacks the shortest month of the year, even when they get an extra day every 4 years

    odd that people who profess to be anti-racist insist on having a whole month dedicated to Americans of one race ONLY don't you think?

    I think in school every month is white history month...

    I believe that's why it was originally formulated, to specifically celebrate the achievements of African Americans in school because the history books didn't really delve into their contributions.
