    I remain convinced that historical 'months' or 'weeks' based upon identity are counter-productive, insincere, and wrong.

    I think black history month served a purpose...and that purpose was to give pride to black youth on black accomplishments...some of which werent in textbooks or being readily taught in the classroom....whats wrong with that ? fast forward to today...is it still serving the purpose it was designed for...honestly I dont know

    I'll make you a deal - when we start teaching a history that is not only non-rhetorical and concise but also inclusive of relevant aspects - you can preach to us about the "divisiveness" of teaching history that isn't white washed. Until then, hey, I'll guess I'll keep Black History Month and you can keep your creationism and beliefs that the FFs were demigods.
    I don't make deals with race baiters.

    The so called race card was minted by the right wing through their own racist beliefs and policies. It exists only because racists invented it, created it, coined it and made it possible. To remind people of the real existence of racism and its effects IS NOT playing any such card however. It is merely invoking reality. And that goes directly against the right wing cause celebre to take the very topic of racism off the table since it hurts them and makes them look bad.

    I certainly would hope that family are also best friends.

    Libs love to revise and ignore history that does not suit them. The fact is Joihnson was a racist and to deny this is to deny reality.

    “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” —Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One -

    “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”—LBJ

    “It’s simple: I’ll have those [racial slur] voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” — Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One according to Ronald Kessler’s Book, “Inside The White House”

    I could go on and on but as they say, one picture's worth 1000 words.

    Pointing out that someone is using that accusation of racism, disingenuously, isn't the same as saying racism doesn't exist, or is a non issue
