Well, thats kind of like saying that the whites came and were big bullies so we pretend they dont have a history.

EDIT : Whoops, I forgot, your going to ignore any points to the contrary

I am not against contary posts, but I think it is a waste of my time explaining over and over that these months are to raise awareness to the history that doesnt make it into the history books, not to say one culture is better than another by awarding them a month to celebrate.

edit...Too bad you didnt pay attention last february or you might be able to know that answer.

Ah, but by giving every race except for Caucasians their own month its like giving everyone a slice of cake because they had something bad happen to them but not giving a slice of cake to the one person who had an average year.  Although you arent openly discriminating against him its still hard on that one person.

Personally, I say give everyone their own month or do away with the system.  What happened to the whole "All men are created equal" slogan?

Well, men and women both have awareness months and I know there is a trangendered month, so I am not sure who you think is left out and isnt included.

I am not trying to attack you, just the arguemnt there isnt a month for everyone.

i guess there are enough holidays about certain white people that it almost counts as a month... but as darur said, it's not exactly fair. not that i'd really celebrate, i mean who does? no one i know, at least. it just makes me uneasy, knowing that "we're all equal" yet we are the only race with out a "slice of cake".

I was speaking racially . . .

And before we begin the endless flow of taunts from the left-wingers out there calling it white man syndrom or whatever the hell their term is, bear in mind we have the same stuff here, though I prefer to call it "poor minority wannabe syndrom".  Hawaiians dont need all the help they get, a large group of them need support but the fat hogs at the top take it all.  Kamehameha Schools, OHA, they all stand for the well-off Hawaiian that just wants more, the only Hawaiians that need that stuff get nothing.  Further more Hawaiians arent discriminated against, were never enslaved and are doing very good.

In a place like Hawaii, a White History month would acctually be a good idea. We are talking about a place where the Caucasian race is so greatly underrepresented that a pure Caucasian when asked his ethnicity will say "haoule", or when a hapa person is asked his ethnicity he might say Filipino and hauole".  Not to mention the fact that weekly I am called an "<explicit> haoule" (I will allow you to fill in your own word, they all are used) and the only history about us told here is how we "stole the aina".

EDIT : Hades, I never consider anything said in a debate an attack on me, nor are any of my arguments (save for a few in the occasinal thread) an attack back.

I think this is just sad that there is a black history month,hispanic history month, and probably asian? dont know if there is. But if we have a white history month then that would be "racist".....

Not sure what to buy...hmm

   I don't hate blacks, they are just so liberal. White people did the hard work building this country, now black people think they have the right to run it. I am not a racist. I just gave the truth, sometimes the truth hurts, even when it comes to race.

Are you kidding me? Slavery ring a bell. African Americans had a huge role in the creation of America.
