Hmm, will Carrie Donaldson also include displays from Egyptian-Americans and white South African-Americans? After all, we wouldn't want to exclude anyone based on the color of their skin, right? They're "African-American" too, right, Carrie? Perhaps you should just stick to "Black History Month", because you wouldn't want to offend any "African-Americans" who aren't actually Black.

Emjoe, that's got to be one of the worst pieces of racist scheit I've read in a long time. I hope that the moderators ban you from TOPIX for life! You aren't even worthy of scrubbing the museum toilets and mopping the urine off the floor in the restrooms.

“Housed in a room off the He Brews It Cafe next to the church, the exhibit…”

“He Brews It”! Who chose that name? Anyone see a problem?

BTW, what is the politically correct term of the day? A.“Black”? B.“African-American”? Some people resent being called the former --- the same ones who called themselves colored and then black – not colored!

When will the name be changed from Black History Month to African-American History Month?

It looks like you attracted a fan club.

I too want to know when white. History month is.
