National Preparedness Month on September, 2018: Do you think having "Black History Month" helps or hinders race relations in America?

September, 2018 is National Preparedness Month 2018.

Do you think having "Black History Month" helps or hinders race relations in America?

There are MANY commemorative months celebrated by this nation and/or used to raise awareness. I wonder why republicans take issue with ONLY this particular celebration.

listen to the best public advice

stay away from crowds and people, that means you need a month or so of food fuel and water and basic medical supply..Support the national Health programs and scientific biological research!

STOP WATCHING ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE MOVIES

prepare for the worse , hope for the best

a severe disease is possible, BUT even in the Great Plague of Europe in the 1400s MOST people survived.

civilization is much more interdependent today. for the first time in history over half the people in the world live in cities and cites CANNOT support themselves with out imports from the rural areas

there are many risks

you MIght be struck by lightning from a clear sky in mid afternoon. does that mean you hide under the bed all day?

Why is that people complain about Black History Month but dont complain about the other months?

I think it is retarded to have a black history month. Most of those other things you listed are to raise awareness for things like disorders and illnesses.

The jews were treated worse then the blacks more recently and they don't have a holocaust month. Atheists and every religion other than catholics were tortured in the Spanish Inquisition. Do they have a month? White people get the most disadvantages nowadays and we don't have a month.

If you don't believe me go look at the requirements for standardized testing, if you are white you have to score higher on your exam in order to pass. High schools are allowed to have a Minority Student Union, Ebony Club, Black Honor Society. White clubs are not allowed due to racism. White people have a harder time getting on government assistance. I have tourettes and Autism and I am unable to get on government assistance. My disability lawyer even said (in joking) "too bad you are not black, then it would be easier to get you ssi". There is a channel called BET and a magizine called Ebony. Do you see a white magazine or a white only tv channel? They even have their own award shows that only give awards to black actors, singers, etc. They are allowed to call themselves the "N" word without getting in trouble.

Now I expect to get thumbs down. But just ponder this. If my yahoo avater was black would you have thumbed me down for saying these things? probably not.
