We shouldn't need black history month. We need the history texted to be revised so they are all inclusive. The reason we have black history month is to compensate for the omission of blacks in the history texts. So correct the curriculum. Teach it all year like every other facet in history. You wouldnt need just one month. Why is this a problem?

I don't think it has to do with omissions it just the moment to recognize African Americans and the importance so many have had to our country and its not limited to Rosa or Dr. MLK jr. As an African American myself I'm thankful that it has existed for so long. Other races appreciate it too ,well those that are open minded. I would never want to do away with Cinco De Mayo even though not everyone understands it or learns about it kwim?

I mean I'm not black but if black people wanna celebrate for a whole month who cares? Lol it's not even like a real holiday or anything.... I never got invited to a black history month party or anything so I don't even think people celebrate it.... There's no black history month card section at the hallmark store haha so what's the beef why do u care?

We don't "need" women's history month, poetry month, national library month, Confederate history month, Asian heritage month, Irish heritage month, Haitian heritage month, or a whole bunch of other things that are tacked onto various months, either.  

But during these months, you get cool snippets of information you wouldn't have known otherwise.   Of course, no one is obligating you to pay attention or inform yourself.
