  2. Ya think we could celebrate Rangle and Patterson, they're somewhat still in the clear.

    Anyone would be a simple fool to propose that Hitler, Stalin, Marx, Mao, Khan, etc. be on a candidate list for Western Civilization or Eastern Civilization Celebration Month, even though academically those persons are in fact notable.

    The teachers should be suspended, and investigated for more sinister (than foolishness) motives, though I doubt the investigation would be able to prove anything anyhow.

    “I just can’t fathom what these teachers were thinking of except to make a mockery of African American history,” said Leon Jenkins, president of the Los Angeles branch of the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People.

    WTF? WTF does he think Black History Month is other than a mockery? What other kind of message does he think it sends when we say "Oh yeah, blacks have done a few things. Nothing important compared to white folks, so we set aside a special month for black history. Just like we have a special olympics for handicapped people, retards and others who aren't as good as normal people. And we made it the shortest month on the calendar." BHM is extremely racist and it is no surprise that the liberals and democrats push it.

    It was poor form for these white teachers to do this. Not to mention they don't seem to be smart enough to realize this wasn't going to go over well. However, if Mr. Jenkins wants to see the true travesty, he would be well served by examining the whole concept of Black History Month.
