As an educator, I agree with Mr. Freeman.
well, it has been like four years since i was in high school, but i really don't remember that much black history. has that much changed in just a few years? and what of the history channels of TV?
I agree that history should just be history, unfortunately it's not right now in this country.

You mean a black man for history (getting rid of the labels).

Gay friends of mine feel exactly the same way about gay pride day. They feel it creates more separation than unity and they want to be recognized as people like everyone else, not gay people.

good point.

i understand where Pride came from, and i don't see why if there's a St. Patrick's Day parade there can't be a gay parade, but it seems increasingly anachronistic with each year that passes.

Agreed. Still, for people who want to celebrate their gayness (or blackness or whatever) I certainly have no problem with it. My friends simply don't participate but it's not like they strongly feel it should go away or anything.

I know that few things send me running to the hills faster than just about any gender-specific event. You won't find me in any women's group ever.

Black history month used to drive me up a wall in school. I couldn't stand it. It was really MLK month. Or "You, Black Child, Could Be President!" Uh huh. Suppose I want to be a rock star instead? "NoNoNo! Be PRESIDENT. You are a Nubian Queeen. Hate Whites. Be Suspicious. They Are After You."
Heh. It got to be a joke. To this day, 11 years after my last black history class, I can tell you /nothing/ of the so called highlights of my 'race's triumphiant history'. Seriously. They tried, poor buggers, but they simply ignored too much American history in trying to make Black kids feel speshul. I think it's really a long as stick for the previous generations who went through shite to whack the younger generations with when we don't perform as expected. Long and short is, most young blacks I know don't care to continue the crappy, suspicious attitude of the past over.
