|Black History Month

Expand your mind...
Why is celebrating influential Blacks only reserved for one month of the year? Is it a coincidence that it's the shortest month? |
Do you remember if you learned about historical black figures regularly throughout the year? Or was most/all of that reserved for February?
Of course, things in life aren't always black or white (for lack of better phrase). Perhaps Black History Month was created with good intentions. But if we are to promote equality in our society, then it's a contradiction. We should teach & educate ourselves of all races of people who have shaped history, year-round. It reminds me of the Christian who only goes to church on Christmas or Easter, and that's good enough to get into Heaven or be right with God.
