Every time I hear this I remember Morgan Freeman on CNN telling them to shove their negro history month up their ass. We don't have many Black people up here so it's not really in the public eye, and one of my best friend's since I was 4 and his family have never once brought it up (Dr Earl Bernard, my family's dentist and they are a family of 5 black people in Central Canada). Black's just aren't treated as a protected class up here, at least in the same way as America, the Natives get to claim the majority of that deal. I see what goes on in the USA though and it's absolutely ridiculous.
Why can't the blacks act like the Asians anyhow...the Chinamen weren't treated any better for the most part post 1865, and you don't hear them whine about it, or demand to be a special protected class with their own history month. The Democrats should make December Asian history month, and have a day of remembrance on the 7th.
