I learn white history all the time, no need for it. Black History Month isn't somthing that was just pulled out of the ass to show any type of segeration or diffrence. I'm sure (even myself) many people learn possibly more history on white americans than black americans. Also how there is no need for White Entertainment Television. I flip channels and see a (VERY) highy majority on every channel.
But you know I mean Enigma your maybe like at least 15+ years older than me. I'm sure you have had a very diffrent experience than I have.
You live in America...therefore white history is much, much more pertinent than black history.
To sum up black history: Inner-continental war, inner-continental war, inner-continental slavery, inner-continental slavery, europeans have an interest in our natural resources, we like the white man's guns and they buy our rival's pow's, oh no the middle passage, we don't get any wages, that sucks, the north won, wages rule, mlk, rodney king, i believe i should get a job based on my skin color rather than qualifications, form equal opportunity, reverse racism.
In short: You don't hear much about African history because they didn't write shit down and Europeans played a very, very large role in Africa's past, excluding the hundreds of years of inner-continental tribe wars prior to the Europeans' arrival.
Black history month is perpetuating racism, and glorifying a past that has little to do with the development of America's history.
