I watched a news segment last night where they were discussing whether or not we should still have Black History Month.
One black women said that in a world of Opra, Tiger Woods, and Barrack Obama we no longer need a Black History Month.
Some argued that some children still don't know about the things that happened in our history while others said it's unfair to have a Black History Month when serious injustices were done to Native Americans as well as other groups and we don't have specific months sets aside for them.
WHAT ARE YOUR OPINIONS AND THOUGHTS ON THIS?
****PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE**** DO NOT TURN THIS INTO A RACIAL ATTACK POST AGAINST ANY RACE!!! We are adults and moms. We should be able to discuss this in a rational and adult manner.

No I don't think we should have a month dedicated to any race. Things of history should be taught by the parents and school.

I think we need to acknowledge America's diversity and how we are a blend of a variety of different cultures, religions, and ethnicitys. Including but not focusing on just Black History Month.

As a Black Woman, I do not think there should be a black history month! We should teach our children important facts everyday of the year. Why just wait for a 28 sometime 29 day month to do this??? I hate when people focus on race. I teach my kids to judge people by their actions not skin color.
