Black History Month: Making It Superfluous

While I appreciate the logic behind Morgan Freeman’s opinion of Black History Month, I believe the point of that particular commemoration is to make sure black history gets covered at all.

However, if we were to teach history (all history) rigorously in this country, which we do not now do, this special attention provided by Black History Month would become superfluous.

I vote for that option.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
