    IF things continue as they have been, then “black history” will become less and less current, as black folks become more and more integrated into whatever we’re all doing. Not that we’re even CLOSE to there yet, but it’s moving that way. Some places at least. But from the moment the slave ships arrived, “being black”… or not… has made a huge difference in what you could do, how you were treated, etc. and THAT is absolutely “black history”, even if the courses seem to spend a lot of time concentrating on the very few who overcame the “handicap” of being black to do something that even (white) historians would agree was important. (Note: Women too).

    In passing: History texts do seem to spend a lot more time on the folks of any skin color who “stick out” of the norm. I guess that’s, well, normal.

    Alt-rights I have to work with have been crying “when’s White History Month” ever since Black History Month was created. They “forget” that most of our history classes – all year – revolve around white history… maybe they “forget” because they slept through it all anyway…

    Are we still following the 1/32d law, or is one of the quarterbacks half white? How are we going to work dat? Who’s deciding?

    Studying black historic figures, we might as well call it MR history? Seems to be a Lot of cream in that coffee.

    Huh. I hadn’t realized. When I was a kid they were still converting black quarterbacks (like Marlin Briscoe) to other positions. Now, no serious person questions a QB’s fitness merely because he’s Black.
