    In it's current format, that is.:teach::teach: First let me say that I grew up in an AFROCENTRIC home. We were taught about our TRUE history. this was a bit unusual at that time. In my parents home Marcus garvey, MalX and Bro kenyatta were among many icons. So, while I overstand the concept of "Black History Month" and agree with it one could go almost a whole month and NEVER here of many of our great ancestors. They trot out the same folk (nothin but love and respect for them) and make you think that our struggle began in 1960.:qqb013: calling them "Afrikan Amerikkkans", (another term that I detest, but thats for another forum) talking about the "Civil Rights movement" as if it was not and has not always been WAR! A war against an INHUMAN MONSTER (learn the origin of the word HUMAN) :) You hear almost NOTHING about AGFRIKANS who slashed the throats of there DEVIL slavers. Almost nothing about AFRIKANS in AFRIKA that led glorious revolutions. Nothing hardly about AFRIKANS in what is now called Europe. In short...... It is NOT teaching our youth either our TRUE history, Our bravery, Our inovative, WORLD shaping inventions. It is turning into a commercial, homogenized, "We are the World" type BS! So, I am gonna spend it spreading the TRUTH and the word about The Most Highs CHOSEN people. The AFRIKAN! :cool:

    I agree. The concept of what is "african history" is given to us by others. That's why I take things like Black History month, and CNN specials of "Black in America" with a grain of salt.

    Ionlyspeaktruth,

    Word up Ionlyspeaktruth! Not only is it the shortest month of the year, it needs a face lift. Personally, Nat Turner is my man, what say you Ionlyspeaktruth? Who is your favorite?

    lol, I remember we had a brief mini discussion on Nat in my African American Studies course a couple of semesters ago. I brought up the point of religious/spiritual interpretation and how it varies from person to person. There was this one white girl in the class who didn't think Nat was correct for seeing the revolutionary passages in the bible....I made sure to put her on blast for that, lol....

    Jahari Kavi,

    And blast is exactly what was needed. Jesus/Yahsua was not only black, but was considered very radical. In hindsight, Nat's interpretation was not so strange afterall, lol.
