Why is it. (Might cause a debate)

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Why is it that black history month is celebrated but if I wanted a "white history month" its racist.

Girls in boy scouts is fine but no boy could join girl guides (Canadians)

Gay pride parades every year but if I teach heterosexual families I am bigoted.

Schools can teach about all religions and all holidays but not about Christmas

That there can be "Black Beauty pageants" where no whites are allowed but if someone tried to do a White only pageant they would be sent to court.

In my sons gymnastics class and a black child went in front of Connor for an activity (no big deal) Mom was beside me (didn't know I was mom) and mumbled  "good job we never go in back put the cracker in the back" I turned to her totally surprised but didn't say anything. What would have happened if I used the N word?

I am sorry for the past I really am...but how much longer are we supposed to bend over backwards for what our ancestors did??

Oh and learn the bloody language of the country you are moving to!

 

Okay so I will get chewed out for this. But before you do. I have friends of all colours I am not racist I am just tired of being treated like a second class citizen by those that claim they are.

Vent over

Well one hetrosexuals do not have parades because it is the norm..... My DD is not taught about religion at all in public school. Other than that. Yes I agree. Racism is at it's peak and not whites on blacks. It is the truth...

I'm a tattooed,pagan,pro-choice,pro-legalizing marijuana,pro-gay marriage,anti-war,non-vaxing,tree hugging,animal loving,book reading,animal testing free,depression battling, trying to raise a free spirit and letting her be who she is but still teaching her important life lessons,fighting for equal rights at the same time,don't like it get over it.

"white" isn't a heritage. There are orgs, scholarships, social clubs, etc. for Slavs, Celts, etc, and no one objects them.

Other than rude gymnastics mom, also known an "an angry black woman", your post is filled with tomfuckery.

I will address just one of your examples and you can extrapolate that reply. There is a Black History month bc at one time and for a long time up to the beginning of BHM, history(read : textbooks) ignored and or negated the contributions of 99% of black Americans.

1. Every month is white history month. Except February. Get over it. Black people get 28days for kids to learn the good they have done. And its not all its cracked up to be. You never learn about the awesome inventors and entrepreneurs (sp?). You just learn about slavery and civil rights. Woopty freakin doo.

2. Girls can't join the Boy Scouts. Sure they can join in on activities like Activity Day and things like that but until they are 14 and join venturing (great program. Get your kids in it) then they are not members of the BSA (unless they are a leader)

3. Having straight pride is one thing. Walking down Main Street with signs that say "God Hates Fags" is another. A "straight pride" parade will quickly escalate to a gay hate march. That is why they are not allowed.
