Should There Be A White History Month? Or Should We Get Rid Of Black History Month. Or Neither?
TheDebater321

Con

First of all, I will be taking the side of doing none of those. Everything is good as it is, we should keep Black History Month and I don't think we need a White History Month as almost every month is that.

Why Should Whites Not Be Recognized For All The Important Things We Have Done? Not Just Because A Different Race Feels Bad For Us.
TheDebater321

Con

Why would we white's need a History Month, when we are the ones not being discriminated against? You have made no clear or relevant points as to why we need a White History Month. And we should not get rid of a Black History Month because they were the ones who were being discriminated against, and they were the ones who worked to get rid of the prejudice.

Slavery was over 200 years ago. You can't go to a black person and have them say that they have a grandparent still alive that was a slave, because it was over 8 generations ago. While WW2 that was about 50 years ago Jews are not recognized and they are white. You can that find a white person that is still alive was discriminated in the concentration camps. There was even white slaves from 200 years ago. Africans knew what they were going to do when they came to this country, they had to pay there way to America.

@ Oshun: How have white people not been displaced? They are not Native Americans? Many arrived here to avoid religious persecution or famine. Also, by your definition we should celebrate every displaced race that arrived in America?

African Americans have been displaced and would not otherwise know their history if they were not taught. So it's very important. The same cannot be said with American History that mostly talk about how this country was colonized by whites.

I've heard the argument CON used before and I am a bit skeptical. It seems to me that there is a difference between celebrating American history and celebrating white history. I think it would be clearer if the question were to be asked: should we celebrate Irish history or Native American history as opposed to "white" history.
