February Not Racist for Black History Month

Over the years there have been complaints about black history month being racist because it is so short and it is an intentional slight to the black community. This will be short and sweet. Again there is much misinformation out there and this is an attempt to straighten it out. Carter G. Woodson a black man and an historian created black history week. It was the second week in February in honor of Friedrich Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. Bottom line is that the natural progression from week to month would take place in the same month. This was not some white supremest conspiracy. Subject closed.
