    Once again our annual exercise in institutional racism is here again. That's right, Black History month is upon us.

    Guess we're in for 28 days of reminders of how screwed up our Grandfathers were toward African-Americans.

    One would think that now that we have elected a black POTUS we can move on. Truth is what we have witnessed is a worsening of race relations the last two years, not an improvement. So if this what we can expect every time we try to reconcile with those who hate us, and receive even more hatred for our efforts, why bother?

    I'm just asking

    What a POV you have, mudwhistle. For starters, I like history very much and I approve of any effort to teach it. I think most schools neglect to teach the history of the poor, no matter what race, and so it is also a window on that many students do not usually get. Yes, the story of black Americans' struggle for civil rights is in part the story of evil committed by some whites -- but it is also the story of great courage and respect on the part of other whites. The story of black Americans is not an exclusively black story.

    The struggle for civil rights in this country is so recent, I lived through most of the significant events. Could we cherish our nation's ability to correct evils of the past for mebbe just a wee while longer before we commence to pretending none of that matters anymore?

    As for race relations getting worse in the past two years....what are you basing that claim on?

    Black History month is not about hating white people.

    What happens when you repeatedly bring up unpleasant memories?

    Answer: You get nightmares

    This month is institutonal racism. Nothing more. A repeated attempt to breed hatred against whites, thus maintaining their 95 percentile among black voters.

    Hello? You cannot be serious, mudwhistle.

    Teach the history of black Americans -- no, wait -- teach the history of America without teaching about slavery?

    Do you also want to edit out the genocide of Native Americans?

    I'm sorry that you view black history as a nightmare.

    So black people should pretend slavery never happened? slavery is not the only thing mentioned in black history months, alot of it is about civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, Medgar Evars etc.

    I see nothing in Black History month that preaches hate towards white people.
