Black History Month Is Hardly About Black History Anymore

by brittany31a


I was never fully opposed to Black History Month as I never considered it a major holiday or something so intrusive into everything that it became an annoyance…but that was when I was young. Today, it’s a different story. 

But that’s because today, celebrating Black History Month has become something of a litmus test for the political and it stopped being about learning and celebrating the accomplishments of important black people in America’s past and more about beating people over the head with leftist politics. As a result, some people on the right have begun pushing back with borderline racist jokes just to make the left angry. 

To be clear, I don’t necessarily fault people just telling jokes to make the left mad. Making the left angry has become something of a favorite pastime for many thanks to the fact that it’s an easy skill to pick up, but still, it all contributes to making Black History Month a social warzone. 

The problem has gotten so bad that spite and bitterness have sunk into the month-long affair. For instance, watch this absolutely lovely woman who probably smells a lot like cats and sadness talk to white people about not ruining Black History Month like we’re small children while calling us all “milk crickets.”

Just a heads up to all the other races, “milk crickets” is OUR word, but I digress. 

This is only going to make people — and not just white people or conservatives — push back against this psychopath. However, once they do, the pushback will be used to justify the claim that America is racist and the month will only sink further into hyper-politicization. 

Which is actually sad, for a couple of reasons. 

Firstly, I think learning about black history is learning about the greatness of America and that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you came from, if you come here and apply yourself you can become something great. The man in the gutter today is a king tomorrow. That’s an important thing to know and that leads me to my next point. 

Last year, I was on X and noticed a black man commenting on some of the destruction that was going on at the hands of black people. Videos were constantly being released of black people openly shoplifting and robbing stores, breaking property, and assaulting people. The black man lamented what he saw and seemed to lose hope about his own race. 

While I can’t quote him verbatim, he said something along the lines of “Maybe they’re right about us. We don’t build anything. All we do is destroy.”

It was heartbreaking because I know for a fact that this isn’t a true sentiment because Black History Month taught me that and there are numerous black people alive that I know of and know personally who are amazing people. 

Today, it seems the message of Black History Month isn’t that great people come in all shades and can contribute to the greatness of America, it’s that being black makes you the victim of a society that people have been fighting against for ages and that every black person today shares a common victimhood. 

A time that was supposed to unite us is now being used to tear us apart. 

Morgan Freeman once famously said that Black History Month keeps racism alive. He had a point. It seems to create more racism than it solves now as too many people now see nothing but our differences highlighted alongside talk about unfair power dynamics and revolutions being necessary. 

I think, at this point, Black History Month as it was is dead. Whatever it is now isn’t about celebration but politicization.
