Black History Month.

What does that look like? There are black people on the home screen of your office computer?  An email goes out that says, "Something something, black History month"?  

I think it's a nothingburger.  

Yeah except that it irritates me to think the corporation I'm dealing with is doing it purposefully to virtue signal to me, as if they're proud of themselves now. When I log into my TD web broker account there's a picture of a black woman there. When I go to my NA broke account there's a black woman and white man - mixed race couple pictured. That's not even for Black History Month. They've been on there for months. 

The way the left has deified black people is alternately laughable and obnoxiously paternalistic. 

And that's without Black History Month. 

Now, my radio station announces every morning while I'm brushing my teeth that such and such Black singer will be featured because of Black history month. None of them are Canadians. WTH? Donna Summe? Tracy Chapman? Really?

Don't you hate when your post criticizing Black History Month unintentionally underscores the need for Black History Month? 

There IS no need for Black history month. Blacks essentially have no history in Canada. At least, none that has impacted Canada. And yet now the Ontario government has mandated that all schools have to teach Black history in grades 7, 8, and 10 "highlighting the various Black communities that emerged, developed and contributed to the development of Canada, including pre- and post-Confederation."

Like what? Can anyone name me something? What did I miss by not being subjected to mandatory black history education?

“It’s important that all students learn about Black communities in Canada and their enormous impact on the growth of our country."

Like what? Anyone?

Canadians don’t know their history.  They think American history is Canadian history.  In fact, true Canadian history is being actively suppressed, because the ideologues can’t handle that slavery barely existed in pre-Confederation Canada, except among Northwest Coast Indigenous.  They also don’t like that Canada was the safe haven at the end of the Underground Railroad.  It’s important to the radical identity politics activists to maintain certain lies.  Soon truth might be called “hate speech” and banned.

It's totally racist.  They should reward it for low family income if they're actually trying to help people and not be racist.

Exactly right. Colour doesn’t automatically make someone poor, a victim, or an oppressor.  This used to be obvious. What a mess.

I'm sorry you had to see Black people, I hope you have a good support system during this trying time in your life.

Nope. There really is no need to celebrate a Black History Month because they never did anything to be recognized as far as i know. Do you have something to show me here as to why we are celebrating BHM? Just asking. 

So, when was this month declared that every month in Canada is a White History Month? I just hope that what i have been saying here does woke you up, lefty. 😁 

People really do be coming on here saying stuff like "why should I learn about history when I don't know anything about history now?" wild, wild stuff. That and the overt racism of course.

You never think. You are too emotional to be able to think, So just how am i being a racist pos here? Did i say something racist that bothered you? Pray tell me, will you, if you can? 

If you got my drift, i was just asking as to when will we ever see a day called White History Month? After all, it was the white folk that founded and settled North America, and not the blacks. So, just what have black people done to make Canada great? Just give me something instead of silly replies like this one? Go ahead, army boy, make your day. 😇

 

Yeah you never see statues of white people, see them on our money, learn about them in school, see them as subject of Heritage Moments, any of that stuff it's like crackers don't even exist.

You are one dumb motherf*cker.

There were 30k of them as late as 1971. What meaningful contribution did they make in Canada's history? The only reason it exists is because the American progressives have turned Black people into the epitome of the noble victim so progressives love to flex about how much they love Black people.

Define "meaningful" here, guy who gets triggered by seeing black people on TV.

I don't think there's any need.  I'd argue that whether or not they have history that "impacted" Canada is a subjective question.  Canadian History is pretty freaking boring after the War of 1812, with the only things I remember from then until WW1 being our independence.

It sounds dopey, and you're probably right, but do we even know they're going to teach?  Is there going to be like, 3 pages in a textbook on the underground railroad, or will they be devoting multiple chapters to the first female black woman in Canada to own her own sewing business, in lieu of talking about the Plains of Abraham?  🤔

Anything that would deserve to go in a history book about Canada other than us generously letting them flee from the Americans.

The thing about this is there's absolutely no way you're asking this in good faith and literally any answer I give will be dismissed. 

No the better question is: why does it matter, why do you care and what's wrong with you that you get triggered seeing black people in commercials lol.

The word racism is starting to become old hat and an over used word. Myself, i am fed up with hearing those two words racist and racism. Racism only happens towards white people now. Black people have become a coddled group. 😬

Soon, crackers will not exist at all if they will still allow anti white hating arse holes like you to continue to exist. All over America, statues of white patriotic Americans have been torn down by Antifa and BLM communists. You are the real dumb mother phkr here. 🤡  Long live the cracker. 🤣

Are you describing the statues of Confederates who were literal traitors to the U.S.A. as "patriotic Americans"? lmao

Show me something where someone forces you to celebrate this?

A member just posted that students in grades  7, 8 and 10 in Ontario have to learn something about black history. Is that not being forced to learn Black History Month? Why no learning about white history? Why, it is racism of course to do so. 

Show me as to why here in Canada White History Month cannot be celebrated? Who the hell founded North America in the first bloody place? Who else but white people. The one identifiable group whom are being suppressed and are being called racists these days. White people are all under attack and made fools of all over the world. Try being a white South African farmer where those white people are constantly under attacked and murdered by the blacks in South Africa.

Fact check that?

So, just where or how am i being a racist, lefty? Come on, show me, will you or stfu with your racist bullshit, lefty. 😁

Statues of some patriotic American hero's were also torn down. 

At the time, the confederates were not seen as traitors. It was war. They were seen as being patriotic hero's in the south. It was only after their defeat many decades later who were later labeled as traitors by the lefties of today of course. 👎

Like everything you've written in this thread is just dripping with racism (oh and whining like a b!tch. Oh wah boo hoo its so hard to be white, stfu).

Who cares, they're statues. And most of the ones torn down were of filthy degenerate rebel scum.

“Whatever may have been my political opinions before, I have but one sentiment now: that is, we have a government, and laws, and a flag, and they must all be sustained. There are but two parties now: traitors and patriots. And I want hereafter to be ranked with the latter.” ― Ulysses S. Grant

Patriots of which country, exactly?

They fought a war against the United States in defense of slavery you absolute dingus.

It is more like this thread is just dripping with plenty of your sheer stupidity. There is nothing that i said here that can be seen as being racist. You cannot show me where i am really being racist? I just questioned something and buffoons like you want to see the racism in what i said. Why do left wing comrades like you always try and make everyone appear to be a racist because they have their own opinion? I can call you a racist just with your anti-white racist reply here. FOB. 

I am pretty sure that there are many so called rebels living in the south that can easily call and probably do call you a filthy degenerate confederate pos. The rebels lost the battle, and therefore, the name calling goes to the victor, comrade. You don't even know as to what the word patriotism really means, comrade. You chosen one comrades despise patriotism.

The rebels fought for what they believed in. Don't forget that there were many black land owners that had and owned many black slaves, dingle pus. Those black slave owners were probably rebels also. Fact check it yourself, comrade. 😁
