Thoughts on Black History Month
Being that my son can literally check every EEOC box, I am not sure what is the right perspective for him. I can say that in the original I got the Power song by Chil Rob G (the clone was by Snap) where he opens with the phrase: Don't say this, don't say that, change the lyrics, everybody's a critic, it's getting kinda hectic and closes with It takes a nation of people to feel proud, about a brother who speaks out real loud is spot on.
Anyway, for those who keep getting it twisted, Black History Month is really about Black History. It is a month dedicated to removing the mental handcuffs of a nation who needs to take time to reflect on other perspectives. For those who find it distracting for me to go offtopic, I guess you should explain your rationalization to our creator, but for those who aren't closed minded, I encourage you to click play on this video (below) that I ran across today...
