    Do you think breast cancer awareness is sexist?
    Eurocentric???

    Sorry if European inventions, innovation or capitalism is responsible for the civilized world, while black folks invented tinkertyoys, interesting food and dances they stole or infused from Hati or Dominican Islands...

    Yeah Europeans only split the atom, cured "incurable" diseases, invented antibiotics and just about everything that makes modern society tick....

    No you have no interest in debate except exploiting political correctness.

    Black history month is racist.

    We may as well have "Sentinelese" month next - don't worry they're black too.

    Maybe if every month were American history month, these people would have at least a small clue when it comes to American history.

    No, come to think of it, they're clueless about a lot of things, not just history.

    I didn't realize that all of these scientists only invented "tinkertoys."

    Patricia Bath - Invented the Laserphaco Probe for the treatment of cataracts.
    George Edward Alcorn, Jr. - Invented a method of fabricating an imaging X-ray spectrometer.
    Henry Blair - Invented one of the first spark plugs.
    Otis Boykin - Invented the control unit for pacemakers.
    Phil Brooks - Invented the first disposable syringe.
    Henry Brown - Invented fire resistant safes.
    William P. Cardozo - Groundbreaking research in to sickle cell anemia, whose findings are still in use today.
    Daniel Hale Williams - Performed the first successful open heart surgery in 1893.
    Percy L. Julian - Developed the synthesis of cortisone, which is used to treat arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.
    Frederick McKinley Jones - Developed refrigerated trucks, which greatly increased food delivery systems and reduced spoilage (still in use today).
    Garrett Morgan - Inventor of the early gas masks.
    James West - Developed the foil electret microphone, which became the industry standard. Approximately 90% of microphones in use today are based on this invention and almost all telephones utilize it, as well as tape recorders, camcorders, baby monitors and hearing aids.
    Granville T. Woods - Invented a telegraph that allowed moving trains to communicate with other trains and train stations, thus improving railway efficiency and safety.
    Jane C. Wright - Pioneered the use of the drug methotrexate to treat breast cancer and skin cancer.

    So, does that put aside your moronic "tinkertoys and dance" theory, or do you still want to continue spouting racist nonsense?

    Weren't the above inventors Americans?
    Is their race the important factor, or their nationality?

    I'm not saying that we need months dedicated to one group or another. I was simply pointing out that Mr. Nick is a racist with his "but, all black people do is sing, dance, cook, and give us tinkertoys" nonsense. And, in actuality, neither their race or nationality is important. Race doesn't determine ability to contribute to society, and arbitrary lines on a map don't determine it either. If someone is against Black History Month because it further perpetuates the idea that what makes us different is more important than what makes us the same, then I agree completely. But, to denigrate black people as little more than "tinkertoy inventors and dancers" is just racist crap.
