It’s Black History Month. Many conservatives, Libertarians and Tea Partiers disapprove.
So what else is new?
Charles C. W. Cooke of the Right-wing National Review suggests that Black History Month is contrived and ”over with.” He believes that black people should get it together and join the rest of American history. We should stop being so racially divisionist as to require our own month. The cause of the uneven playing field, after all, are Black people themselves.
Affirmative Action, Civil Rights Laws, the Congressional Black Caucus, Black History Month…You know: All of the “special treatment” we Blacks in America get.
