Every Day In America Should Be Black History Month
But you need some history to understand this…Because if America were really about anything significant, it would celebrate Blackness, every day, all day, since they haven’t had the decency to pay us that 40 acres and a mule they promised back in the day. They could at least treat us decently, promoting the idea we would be celebrated for our efforts, even if we aren’t acknowledged in any other way.Without us, America would be just another broke-ass first world country without elevators, streetlights,brooms,combs,telephones, cotton gins and a fuck-ton of free labor lasting well over two hundred years (1619 to 1863, give or take). I know ,I know many say ...come on "NATURAL MAN" it's our month - right?STRAIGHT BULLSHIT! When Black Apologists say the past is the past and we should get over it, I hang my head in shame for their ignorance. It is clear that such people are given a pulpit to speak because it promotes the ideals so necessary for the system of disenfranchisement we live under to continue.We can accept that stupid people will say stupid things and move on, or we can stand up and fight for what we know to be right.
"Today, the game has changed but the underlying message is still the same.You can’t compete. We won’t let you. We don’t say no. We just don’t say yes, either." I have no use for Black History Month. You cannot give me what I have already earned. Our history is more than a month given to appease us. In the meantime remember this: I will not be stopped. Not now. Not ever. Keep Black History Month for yourselves. I claim the YEAR, all three hundred and sixty five and a quarter days of it to reminding you WE ARE STILL HERE. You pink people said it yourselves "GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH" No our history can not just lumped into month...just something to think about.
