Which bit of "abolished" don't you understand? If it was abolished then it had to exist and be condemned. Europe has had a long history of slavery, tyranny and nicking everything that wasn't nailed down.
But the way some Americans speak.. and I'll say "enough Americans" It's like bloody Alf Garnett- who was a 60's parody of a racist moron.
"what do you mean? I was reinforcing my original point to chi" - chi_bloodlollie ....I took the necessary step to make it obvious I wasn't talking to you....But you still had to peddle your ignorance...
Being a black american, I can say that black history month is mostly for our own self esteem as people. It has little to do with white americans in general, mostly because its about celebrating our history. Blacks in america don't have a culture like our african counter parts, so we had to create one, our origional cultures having been lost. I wouldn't say we needed one, but if you don't want to take part in it, no ones asking you to, just ignore it.
