    People our going to have to learn to get along. The inner cities of the US are among the most violent areas in the world. According to Justice Department satistics, black on white hate crimes are higher than white on black ones as a proportion to the population.

    Any type of racist attack is wrong.

    Most of the crime in the inner cities is minority on minority and that's wrong too.

    Not to sound racists but..

    If the ones beaten up were black, there would be streets lined up with blacks marching. Al sharpton would be there to preach and act like Martin Luther King.

    I live in Louisiana, and the Jena 6 thing just made me sick to my stomach.

    That's not racist. It's only racist when white people do it.

    In case you missed the national vote on race behavior, I'll explain:

    Black History Month: Good
    White History Month: Racist

    Black Entertainment Television (BET): Good
    White Entertainment Television (WET): Racist

    Negro Improvement Association: Good
    Caucasian Improvement Association: Racist

    H. Christ. It's amazing how clueless people are. The other things you said are clueless too but this one is the easiest to point out. THERE ALREADY IS A "WHITE HISTORY MONTH." IN FACT THERE ARE ELEVEN.

    Black History Month is about black people reclaiming part of history for themselves. It's amazing to me that people don't put these things into CONTEXT. Black people were legally second class citizens in this country until only 40 years ago. 40 years is NOT a long time.

    CONTEXT. Look into it!

    I'm gonna have to disagree BIG TIME. I've heard this from blacks ever since I was in elementary. Like what the hell are you talking about bro? Eleven months for white history? Since when do we celebrate white history for 11 months and cat around in our white power t-shirts?

    The 12 months in the year is for both races. Black and white. Then the blacks get a special month all about them. Whites don't. Unless I miss it every year.

    touchAshley - you are entirely missing the point. White folks history is what our country is based on - everything is "white history" - that's why things like "black history month" have been created - to help black folks learn about their own heritage so they feel a connection with history as well. Again, it's the context of the situation - acting like white folks and black folks have taken the same path to get where we are today is pure ignorance. What you need to do is really put yourself in the shoes of history and try to understand what was happening, not just the dates and the names, put yourself there. And no, this is not ancient history. This is very recent if you have any real perception of time. Dig it man, get a little deeper, you can do it.

    Wow, where is it? I never heard it on the news. I've never experienced in school. No teacher ever told me Christopher Columbus is a great WHITE MAN, and discovered America, due to his great whiteness in his skin pigmentation.

    I guess, I'm a person that is trying to wipe racism off the Earth. That means removing the ideas of race, not building certain races up.

    That is crazy talk. 11 months of celebration for white history? Damn I'm missing the party aren't I !? I want my white pride t-shirt..

    As far as the all black television stations.. and the black history month and what not, the blacks are just asking to be singled out and to be different. Then they bitch about it.

    This is why you should carry a gun, especially in Brooklyn. I would've put a Glock down each of their throats and play slip'n side in the aftermath.

    ...and white people are legally second class citizens now. Affirmative action gives preference to certain groups regardless of qualifications.
