Monday night everyone was excited about the unveiling of Tallahassee Community College's 2008 African-American History Month Calendar. Hundreds watched as the cloth was pulled away from the calendar cover honoring the familiar faces of accomplished African Americans throughout the community.

This year's theme was, "The Mis-Education of the Negro: Re-educating and Empowering 75 Years Later." The calendar unveiling featured the Christian Heritage Church Choir and a presentation by a young man who has collected all of the Black History Calendars.

    I am against Black History month simply based on economic feasibility. Just think about how much of your tax dollar is wasted in funding this Black History month. Its also a complete mind washing of the children, especially Black children into thinking that reparations should be made, thereby raising a culture of kids with entitlement syndrome.

    "African American's" think everyone owes them everything. It's sad that people today are still paying for what was done so many years ago.

    Some of you are quite funny White history month is every month of the year with the exception of February which was designated Black History Month. Call yourself what you want because race doesn't really matter, only skin color does.

    I remember being in school and sitting through an entire month of the same thing every year. MLK, Jessie Jackson, Rosa Parks, and watching Roots. I have respect for these people, but I do not agree with an entire month devoted to them. If African Americans want to celebrate their history, that is fine, but I can think of a few others who deserve to be celebrated also, and they get what? A day? If anyone deserves an entire month, we should dedicate it to all veterans and armed forces. They are remembered one day of the year, and they done a heck of alot more for me and EVERY american than MLK could have ever "dreamed" of doing.

    The great thing about America is; We DO NOT have to observe or celebrate ANY day, or month!

    I agree with cmb. WHen are we having a white history month. Also, what is with "African American"? We are born American. I have Irish in my bloodline and sure don't call myself an "Irish American". We are and always will be American FIRST !! So it should be American African.

    Native Americans and Hispanic Americans have a month in the year when they celebrate their culture. Jesse and Al, I'm sure are very aware of these celebrations. Mr. William should focus more on his spelling and trying to learn something during these months of cultural celebrations.

    William,it is evident that you're not an African American. However, that is your opinion, and your or entitled to one. Sound like you need to be speaking with the people in Congress. Have a Great Day.
