I come from a racially mixed family. Meaning...my step siblings are from another country, family members are married to members of other races and cultures. But at this point we are all Americans. I have grown up in a town that had a fair mix about it. My point is that I get along with everyone regardless of where they came from.
So my question is...if we are all equal, and we all want to be Americans...then why do we celebrate so many "Pride" months?
I see no problem with being proud of your heritage. But at this point we are all American. None of us were slaves, lived in internment camps, or lost our land. Yes our ancestors did...but we have worked hard for equality. If we all want the same rights then I say we change all those "Pride" months into just one. American Pride Month.
What do you think?

We are a unique melting pot, where each of our cultures and mores adds a bit of spice. Yet, being homogenized at all times, does not make for a healthy environment. So, we strike out and show our colors. And that is wonderful!
