Posted on 02/27/2009 11:43:46 AM PST by Responsibility2nd
So here I was - taking my daughter to school this morning (She is a high school sophomore) and she was telling me of a discussion she and the other kids were having about Black History Month.
One kid suggested that - to be fair - there should be a White History Month. He was quickly chastised; "Whites don't deserve a special history month due to the racial prejudices they've committed over the years". My daughter related some of the "Rosa Parks" types of incidents as evidence of why there should be no White History Month.
It was early. I was driving and had not yet had my first cup of coffee. And so I was speechless.
What would YOU have said?
Excuse me, but aren’t you exhibiting the same racism that you are excusing whites of the past of committing?
It would need to be a White History decade, because of all of the accomplishments whites have contributed to Civilization.
I want Mutt History Month
I think I would have asked her what color were the founding fathers?
Nobody deserves a special month. Just teach history.
I don’t think there should be a white history month, a black history month or a month for people with blonde hair and blue eyes.
They will tell you the standard line that blacks CAN’T be racists.
Well, If you fully buy into the oppressors/victims view of the world, the kids are absolutely right. Right now the leftist culture dominating the discussion buys into that view completely.
This attempt to divide people based on skin color is evil. Frankly, I would appreciate it if schools actually taught history instead of advocating racism.
REALLY? PROVE THAT BLACKS ARE NOT RACISTS!
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.-Ayn Rand
I would have said: “Daughter, I have failed in my duties to see to it that you have a proper education”
and that, would be the best answer. Just teach history.
Sorry, It’s just me. But I don’t know what you mean. Can you elaborate and re-phrase your question?
Well, if our history is worth no more than a month...
How about WHITE HISTORY MILLENIUM!
Declare it today.
Freepers What would YOU have said?
I'd have told her to knock off the drugs.
Get out of the "high school" and into a "highschool".
I’m not certain, but was it your daughter that was taking the liberal position here?
If so, PULL HER OUT OF THAT PUBLIC SCHOOL INDOCTRINATION CESSPOOL ASAP!
I don’t know what I would have said to her but I’m tired of having to worship at the altar of black pride.
Oh yea, Black history is so much more meaningful.
Sooner or later, whites may very well leave this country, give these spoiled racists their precious black nation, and then laugh as these stupid fools fall apart. Just like Africa.
Coming soon to the nearest Barack H. Obama High School in your area.
To be fair to your daughter you need to educate her on the race baiting mentality of segments of society and to not feel guilty for their sin.
“Whites don’t deserve a special history month due to the racial prejudices they’ve committed over the years”.
To your daughter, i might have said:
Black racisim is far more pervasive TODAY, but they don’t want to hear it, and they fail to understand their own prejudices. They still have a long way to go before they can overcome the bitterness that they have been taught by their parents.
Past injustices by people who are long dead should not be imputed to people who are not guilty of such improprieties.
If people want to be treated as equals, they can’t go around claiming that some people dont “deserve” things because of their race.
Only Whites can be racist.
It is written in stone using black chisels.
All of us are Mutts..
‘With only four years of highschool available, there simply isn’t time to list all the world changing accomplishments of caucasians, honey, or the stories of the millions of dead caucasians that gave their life freeing slaves here in America, or around the world. Cacausians don’t need a ‘year’ or a ‘month’ or even a ‘day’ because they do what they do when the need arises because its the Right Thing, and thats enough for them.’
So am I. I don’t anymore, I only worship God and his Son and not these overpuffed filth.
That’s obvious, huh?
As I send her to a public skrewl.
Explain to your daughter that the real racists in our society pander to minorities for their own feelings of guilt and in the process do more harm to their intended subjects by making them feel like they are different and special rather than ordinary human beings. It is the same reason why Mommy and Daddy get Martin Luther King day off from work, but not Washington’s birthday.
I’ve had it with all this 24/7 race baiting.
My children have been forced to participate in black history month pageants. Some kid started a rumor that students who don’t participate will be expelled.
My 12 year old son wants to say, “Can I just sit in the audience and read ‘I Am Legend’? It has a picture of a black guy on it...”
He cracks me up sometimes.
Blacks are allowed to have clubs in which only blacks can be members. If blacks only allow other blacks to be in these clubs, it is the definition of racism.
Blacks accuse whites of the racism of people long dead, but think that black racism is permissible.
Agreed. What would happen if the majority of the tax base were to leave? Hell, If I have to live under a socialist regime, I might as well move to Canada.
She must be confrewsed.
Their arguement is that because blacks aren’t in positions of authority, they can’t be racists. They like to pretend that no black has ever risen above the level of lackey.
I would have her ask her friends if they did not know about the whites that shed blood during the civil war to abolish slavery? Or the whites that stood with the black civil rights activists during the 50s and 60s and risked injury or death? How fair is a Black History month if these points are not brought up?
anything to be different, right?
But if Julius Caesar created July, and Augustus Caesar created August, maybe we should have Baracktober?
OK anythng white is out, so how a Black Family Responsibility Month? (Seeing as broken homes are highy correlated with social problems).
exactly. enough divide & conquer
No that month is named for the OCTOmom
They forget that one must have (or at least should have) some leadership ability. Being able to extort other people is not a leadership quality in my book.
I want Greco-Roman Classical History month but I am kind of strange.
How about just having a “History Month” since we are all Americans?
Having an exclusive “black’ month is racism perpetuatal.
Let’s teach “American History”. It is all inclusive.
America is not all about black people. Everyone has contributed something.
Who freed the slaves? How many non-whites in Congress when the Civil Rights Act was passed?
Exactly. At least in Canada they don’t scream about how evil whites ruin the country.
I wish I could give all these spoiled brats a good whipping. It would go a short way toward getting rid of my frustration.
