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.

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)


 In Canada they can and do...my son has one girl in his boy scouts group and he is a cub!

I can agree on the race thing. The gay pride and language stuff, not with you there.

I agree with most of this too.

Never heard of boys in girl scouts or girls in boy scouts. That's just dumb.
