Welcome to Gaia! ::

Black History month is only celebrated in the U.S.A so I think anyone who does not live here has no right to even begin to complain...well aside form the fact that Gaia made a forum for it but Gaia is a U.S.A company.

The U.K does have a Black history month but in a later month.

Everyone always has a right to complain because everyone has a right to their own opinion and if their opinion on Black History Month is not a nice one, they still have the right to express it. Those who fought for our rights would be ashamed.

It's pretty clear the OP was not talking about legality but about decency.

But if you're gonna be super duper technical, since this is a privately owned forum, Gaia could make rules about all sorts of stuff that would be protected speech in the US; what we say here is not under the first amendment since it isn't public/government owned.

OP said we have no right to complain, I say we do. The First Amendment isn't the only document in support of freedom of speech, it's a pretty widespread concept in the Western World if you haven't noticed.

As a British citizen, I'd like to ask:

When was Black History Month ever anything more than part of the school curriculum here?

Honestly honey I couldn't tell you. I only did some research to find this out. It could be just like the U.S and its other history months that it goes unnoticed because no one celebrates it. I for one didn't know about the others until I did my research.
