Where do "national (fill in the blank) months" come from?
Oh who knows?! These "awareness months" are associated with very worthy causes...worthy enough I suppose for someone in the White House to declare that an entire month of the year be devoted to educating people on the subject. (i.e. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month....February is Black History month, etc. etc.) There are a lot of little things which have been declared to have their own month but few people know about it....i.e., I don't know exactly which month it is, but there is a National Potato month and a National Adopt a Pet month, etc. etc.
Why is that people complain about Black History Month but dont complain about the other months?
I think it is retarded to have a black history month. Most of those other things you listed are to raise awareness for things like disorders and illnesses.
The jews were treated worse then the blacks more recently and they don't have a holocaust month. Atheists and every religion other than catholics were tortured in the Spanish Inquisition. Do they have a month? White people get the most disadvantages nowadays and we don't have a month.
If you don't believe me go look at the requirements for standardized testing, if you are white you have to score higher on your exam in order to pass. High schools are allowed to have a Minority Student Union, Ebony Club, Black Honor Society. White clubs are not allowed due to racism. White people have a harder time getting on government assistance. I have tourettes and Autism and I am unable to get on government assistance. My disability lawyer even said (in joking) "too bad you are not black, then it would be easier to get you ssi". There is a channel called BET and a magizine called Ebony. Do you see a white magazine or a white only tv channel? They even have their own award shows that only give awards to black actors, singers, etc. They are allowed to call themselves the "N" word without getting in trouble.
Now I expect to get thumbs down. But just ponder this. If my yahoo avater was black would you have thumbed me down for saying these things? probably not.
