@Steelgrid "Black History Month, Asian History, Mexican History....Cool.... White history month is RACIST!!!!"
Really? Every month is White History Month, even when they're called "Black, Asian, Latino, etc. History Months". History as a field itself is biased towards white history in the U.S. because we`re a white centrist society... but wake up. The "minority" groups are growing and soon whites will be the minority.
Meaning that in the future, there just may be one month of the year dedicated to White History only.
But for now, even the "minority" history months are chalk full of white history as well, as we`re inexorably connected in this country. ANY history--regardless of any cultural biases--can teach us ALL about ourselves and our other brothers and sisters.
There is no white history month, not because it would be racist, but because all 12 months are white history months. That`s the bottom line. I like
