Tuesday Open Thread

Kudos to my fellow brown bloggers over at Jack and Jill Politics.

Today is the beginning of Black History Month and while some may feel we are so far removed from the incidents of events in this country and are so multi-racial, why single out one month? Some may say they are tired of hearing about the Civil Rights Movement and feel that affirmative action left out other people, why single out one month for all things black? Simple, because if hundreds of thousands of millions of native Africans had not been forcibly removed from their native land, their names, religions, family, tribe, language, customs, and dignity destroyed, the ones who do not want to hear about it, would never have what they enjoy today.

Like my Jewish brethren, we remember so we will not repeat.
