Black History Month no more

Recommended Posts

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/oct/01/councils-are-scrapping-black-history-month-but-every-day-the-news-reminds-us-why-we-need-it

the analysis of this article could go in multiple directions, starting with the lack of writing ability of the so-called journalist. 

Anyhow, moving on, my point of posting it is to wonder why we don’t celebrate indigenous working class struggles. 

Going back in history, we had the diggers, the tolpuddle martyrs, the mass deportations of starving white people to the colonies because they stole food to keep themselves alive. 

In scotland we had the clearance and in Ireland we had the potatoe famine  

Moving foward, we had  the battle of union street (Scotland again). We had the jarrow March. 

More recently we had hilsboro (not directly but it was a working class battle against the establishment). We had the miners strikes. 

Im just scratching at the surface here but I bet most in the country would not know about these, even less care but we have the sjw wailing about us not celebrating black history. 

I dispair, I really do.

In the Congo or Nigeria do they have a White History month?

Also, why no Asian history month or similar?

You couldn't fit Asian history into month. you certainly couldn't fit any aspect of white history into one month.

It's a bit like having an Italian battle success week.
