They don't get attention because the media doesn't shove them up your a** year after year, it's got nothing to do with them not being celebrated. If anything, they aren't celebrated because they aren't on the news or where ever else. People need to know they exist in order to celebrate them.
For example, If you are Hispanic, and don't know when Hispanic Heritage month is, that's STILL your problem.
Black people choose to celebrate it as much as possible.
Haters gonna hate.
If you're Hispanic and don't know when Hispanic Heritage Month is it's probably because you don't know there is one. If it got as much media attention as Black History Month gets, you would know when it is and you would be able to celebrate it. I'm not hating, I'm just being reasonable. Judging by the posts I've seen you making here though, I can tell you're a troll. We're done.
ummm I'm not a troll, just sick of people like you talking garbage about black history month. You sir are the troll.
I'm not talking s**t. I'm stating the simply fact that it is glorified and seems to be held in higher respect than any other history month. It gets more attention, more time on television and even hot topics on websites I like to go on. I've never seen any other history month pinned as a hot topic here and never even knew any other history month existed until I started doing a little digging.
But why come here to trash it? THAT'S whats pissing me off. Why do you want to come here and troll? I'm really tired of having this conversation with people like you but until your ancestors get enslaved and dragged from another country, to only be enslaved longer, have to put up with segregation and be treated like s**t, you won't understand the importance of this month.
Honey, who to say some of his ancestors weren't? I understand that why people feel the need to say that in Black History Month but that isn't want this month is primarily about. Its about the accomplishments those in the Black community now and in the past made through all the struggle of segregation and hate in the United States. The way we showed ourselves that we are not to be ignored and that we have the right to the same freedoms as everyone else. Now we stand with that freedom earned and do the things those people in our past had hoped and fought for us to do. Slavery is brought up to show where we came from and how we started to move ourselves forward not to be thrown in the faces of others like it was done to use personally.
Yes, the enslavement of our ancestors was harsh and cruel but don't hold onto the hate or we'll never push forward like they wanted us to and have the future they rightfully earned for us.
