Black History Month

Black History Month:
Is extremely important to celebrate and honor.  Why?  "Black History" is "American History", it's my history, it's our history, it's your History/ HerStory.  It's important to celebrate our history and culture and give thanks to all that pave the way for us.   

Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.
Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.

It's normal for me to want to learn more about my history and culture and share it with the world. This is how we learn from one another sharing our cultural differences.
So when you listen or read; about certain ignorant people, trying to diminish our culture for a paycheck and extra publicity; makes you wonder. How far a person will go for attention. 
It started a serious conversation amongst other's, who may have felt the same way or who strongly disagree.
We're not all going to agree with each other. 
Let's all acknowledge our differences in opinion. With that being said; let's learn to agree to disagree peacefully.
Yes we're all Americans as "Whoopi Goldberg" stated "We all aren't treated the same; either"

"If you ask me; "the Shade" was thrown
by her first; with her off the wall comment"
