Well, of course I disagree and I think he's simplifying very serious issues.
The history of white people is celebrated every moment...in television commercials, on billboards, the movie "KING KONG" and the movie "Good Luck and Good Night"---are full of WHITE history if you notice.
Music videos are often chock full of WHITE history.
Did anyone notice how artists like
Madonna, Culture Club, Streisand, Bruce Springsteen and countless others incorporated
White History in their most successful videos
---and did it all the time?
Michael Jackson gave us "Remember the Times",
thankfully. But we rarely get that.
Black history SHOULD BE celebrated every day...but the schools aren't going to do it.
They don't even celebrate it during February.
And am I the only person who's noticed that
most Black children nowadays have no clue who
Frederick Douglass is?
Black parents don't teach Black history.
Black MEDIA doesn't transmit black history.
As for pretending that we're all just "humans" with no flesh and no secondary characteristics
....I blame that on Morgan Freeman's old age.
At 68, he's obviously from an older stock of blacks who actually thrive on these kinds of illusions of inclusion fantasies that to me seem so imbicilic.
I've been all around the world and it amazes me
how "Blacks" are the only people who REFUSE to learn anything from the past.
And the older I get, the more I appreciate my
Auntie Ramah's saying, "The world did not begin--on the day that YOU were born."
