My daughter, who is white, participated in a Black History trivia show at school. She was selected by her teacher because she knew the answers. 2 children from every class were chosen. I thought it was great but I overheard a couple of moms, who were black, saying they thought it was wrong that a white child was in a "Black History" competition. Thier words were " why is that little white girl up there, I thought this was black history? that's just wrong!" It was run like a spelling bee. She didn't win but she did make it half way through the competition. I was proud of her. IMO just because it's black history doesn't mean it is just for black people. Isn't it also the history of America! am I wrong??
I should add that I live in an area where white is minority. My kids are usually the only white children in class. My daughter has 1 other white student in her class of 18. My son has 3 other white students in his class of 21.
