I knew it was just a matter of time before it happened and it did. I just noticed an announcement for the “Second Annual White History Month” (I missed the first one).
Along with “Black History Month” and “Hispanic Heritage Month”, I can’t help but wonder when someone will start a “White Miss America” contest, or a “White College Fund”, etc.,etc. We are getting more divided all the time. If you think racism is dead you must be living in a cave! Enough of this nonsense. This is the very thing that keeps racism alive. The very people who complain the most about it are the ones who do the most to keep it going. That includes the politicians who play the race card every chance they get for the sake of getting support. They ought to be fired!
We could learn a valuable lesson from Theodore Roosevelt who said, “A hyphenated American is not an American at all. This is just as true of the man who puts ‘Native’ before the hyphen as of the man who puts German or Irish or English or French before the hyphen. Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul. Our allegiance must be purely to the United States. We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance.”
If we ever get to the place where people will be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin, we have to stop this kind of behavior. Surely we’re smart enough to figure that out. But, are we? That’s what I’m wondering. Think about it!
