    Ok so given the title n what is about to be say i know i run the risk of possibly getting banned from here & honestly i do not care...I write this in mind to voice my opinion...the notion that race doesn't exist which is a position i've held the last 2 years now....i got compelled to write this because i've come to despise black history month & what it stands for....theres no such thing as black history or even black people....we are all humans & race is a socially constructed term that was used by europeans to further justify their actions over the african people....Its time to stop seperating history based on the notion of color...We are all human & the only remote any person has to lay claim to "race" is because society has ingrained it in our heads we are a certain race. I could only see the notion of someone being called an african american to tell of their nationality & the same would apply for all other races....but the idea of race is a tired futile idea that needs to go as does the idea of black history.....one mere month is not representative of thousands of years of history & doesn't account for "african americans" full contributions. If your going to speak on history speak on it collectively meaning throughout the year. Its rather pathetic that such is even allowed to continue & people are ignorant to how such thinking affects them.


    That is all

    I mean no offense, but how come biracial people are the main ones who come up with this same ole recycled diatribe?...

    And aren't you the same person who sees nothing wrong with whites discriminating against a black person with natural hair or locks?

    if race dosen't exist in your world, then why should a black person use toxic chemicals to alter their hair just to make a white man comfortable?

    MiKe,

    The point that the term race has been a confused biological concept or construct is valid. Here’s the bigger question, what replaces, which is to say, how should the human race be classified for the purpose of, “ I could only see the notion of someone being called an african american to tell of their nationality & the same would apply for all other races,” as you say?

    You do understand that by making the statement above plays right back into the confusion. Nationality, culture, language or religion, has been used to separate and identify the so-called different races.

    When one disagrees with something, and in this case the disagreement is valid, a replacement should be put on the table. How should the human race be classified, or what replacement concept would you propose?
