I have to say i agree with Stacy Dash on this one….
“I’m not saying we as black people deserve LESS respect. I’m saying we deserve MORE,” she wrote. “Black History should be apart [sic] of social studies and history curriculum EVERYDAY OF EVERY MONTH OF EVERY YEAR. not just 28 days out of 365!!!!”
It’s a common argument used by blacks (and whites) who feel that Black History Month separates black American history from American history in general.
“In a hundred years, do you really want the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr, Frederick Douglass, and even Barack Obama to be discussed only in the month of February?! Black history IS American history. We are not a category or a special interest group. We are Americans,” she continued.
“Our accomplishments cannot be limited to 28 days. Do not listen to liberals who try to limit you, to put you into a box, to tell you that you MUST believe one way or another, that you cannot think for yourselves, and that the government can ‘give’ you a ‘special month.’
“I can tell by the hysterical reactions that it’s not WHITE PEOPLE who are trying to keep black Americans in their place. It’s BLACK people,” she said.
