  1. Propaganda to further divide Americans along "racial" lines. Even though we are all one race, created in the image of our father in heaven. This kind of stuff always comes wrapped up in a bundle of false sincerity… it's of the devil.

  2. A month ain’t enough, let’s just make every year black history year. Maybe then that’ll be enough to stop constantly giving them attention and recognition. Meanwhile, all of the other minorities, like my fellow hispanics, are completely disregarded because apparently blacks are the only oppressed and affected minority group. This is getting out of hand. And you “woke” white people need to stop trying to act like you suddenly care, as do politicians and organizations like YouTube, Google and Twitter. They are all just jumping on the bandwagon and gaining momentum
