Question: What's the story behind black history month!?
How was it startedWww@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
It started as a promotion by KFC!. Every February they would drop the prices of all their food being sold by 10%!. They claimed this was to honor African Americans!. As you can see, it was a raging success!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

as a way for african americans to have their cake and eat it too!.!.!. they claimed "segregation but equal" was incorrect, yet black people dont mind it one bit when it works in their favor!.!.!. i see no white, asian, or any other kind of "history months!." apparently black people want to be treated better now in remorse for something that happened to their great great grandfathers and has affected them in no way at all, yet claim it is "equal" anyway!. apparently, they dont understand that almost every race in the history of humanity was enslaved at some point in time!. white people were enslaved long before blacks!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It was started in 1926 by Carter G!. Woodson who chose the second week of February as "N e g r o History Week" as it was that week marked the birthdays of Lincoln and Frederick Douglass (in case you don't know Douglass was a former slave who became an abolisionist)!.

(edit: because of censoring I had to add spaces to a specific word which was not meant as a racial slur in this case as I did look up Black History Month and found that was what it was originally called)Www@QuestionHome@Com
