End Black History Month!

I propose that, from this day forward, we stop telling the tale of two Americas and instead document and celebrate the full and storied, multicultural and multidimensional story that is America in all of its colors, geographies and passions, in all of its ups, downs and exhortations.( Article here.....)

I don't agree with that at all. Why not get rid of Dr. King's day will be next and Oh, let's not for get Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah and ALL the Jewish holidays! How about Women’s History Month, held in March, or even Hispanic Heritage Month, which begins Sept. 15?

Why can't we celebrate the beauty and accomplishment of African Americans even if' it's only for 28 days? Black History Month doesn't "separate" anybody it simply recognizes the achievements and the contributions of black Americans to the American story. We were the only people that was force into this country and the only people who are force to forget. THAT"S SAD!

Is there still a need for Black History Month?
