Bothered: Just Ranting Again :)


It is February…We all know what that means: It is Black History Month. Want to know what pisses me off about people during Black History Month? Pure IGNORANCE! There are 12 months in a year, and you know when people say negative ish the most about Black History Month? You guessed it: Black History Month. Seriously, the ONLY time I ever hear anyone say “We don’t need a month, we need to celebrate Black History 365 days a year, every month.” Oh please!

Honestly, why can’t people just appreciate recognition? It’s not as if Black History month was created yesterday, and it’s not as if Black History is taught in schools all year either. Embrace it, respect it, and allow your mind to be free. It cracks me up that everyone is all of a sudden revolutionaries looking to celebrate their history all year once February comes, but could care less about the celebration of what it is to be Black at any other time of the year.

A few years ago, it looked as if Black people would finally set aside the nonsense and be a unified people as they were in the old days, but nope…It was just a show for the people of Jena and the Jena 6!

Black History Month is a celebration of the achievements/milestones of African Americans. I see nothing wrong with that. Are we going to begin arguing against other months?

Another thing that bothers me is that people find a reason to complain about it: “Why is Black History Month the shortest month of the year?” Seriously? READ A FREAKING BOOK! It is for that reason alone, that I believe that it should be celebrated and taught. Have you no knowledge of why this month exists, and why it is in February? -sigh-

Black History Month began as Negro History Week in 1926 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson. The goal of Black History Week was to educate the American people about African-Americans’ cultural backgrounds and reputable achievements. It was chosen to be celebrated the second week of February between the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln., in which it later became Black History Month in 1976. So again, what is the problem?

Okay…I’m done. But before you have an attitude about Black History month just be happy that you’re not in chains being whipped, and actually have civil rights!

…We’re physically free, but some of us are still mentally enslaved…It’s sad!

Be Blessed friends!
