St. Patrick's Day
Cinco de Mayo
The National Holocaust Museum
The Jewish Anti-Defamation League
The French Quarter
...and so on are all a part of the American cultural experience reflecting the diverse heritages, cultures and histories of the American people that we ALL honor and celebrate. I don't see why Martin Luther King Day and Black History Month should be singled out as somehow bad for America under an argument that because they reflect heritage of the black community its a waste of time. You cannot talk about black history in America without honoring Eleanor Roosevelt, John Brown, Abraham Lincoln, Lyndon Johnson, John F Kennedy, Viola Liuzzo, Jonathan Myrick Daniels, Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings. Maybe we just need to change the name to something else.
