"Honoring Successful Black Americans" Terry Paulson; Congradulations on your foresight! Continue to fan the flames of discrimination! Honoring "successful black", does not, in your wildest dreams; Honorable! What it does do; ic continues to widen the gap between our "colors'! The simple use of "black' , OR "White", in any discription of ANYTHING, just perpetuates the racial divide! Are we not ALL, Americans? We will NEVER homologize as a Nation, until the "color" , or the lack of it, is eliminated from ALL reports! Focus on the other fact; TWO Languages! TWO sets of measurements! TWO, sets of Signing! TWO sets of confusion! What are the problems in our "United" states? Do the discriptions mean anything?

Under "Normal" circumstances you would be correct and I would wholeheartedly agree with you. However, with the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, et al, and the connivance of the MSM in fulfilling Geo. Washington Carver's warning: “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” I just as strongly feel that it is imperative to shine a bright light on those who give the lie to their Bull S***.

For successful minorities who become public figures more and more young minorities realize the "American Dream" does in fact apply to them.

Add the warning of Booker T. Washington who admonished blacks never to trust the government for anything, to avoid all appearances of evil, and to be exemplary in conduct. Whites should listen as well to what he said.

History is a fact known to all , but Black History month is absurd. Why isn't there also a White History month, and a Indian History month and a Asian History month?

Is there a black history month to honor the ancestors of former slaves? Or is there a black history month honoring the black man who was the father of slavery?

Why is one race honored but the others aren't?

Check the history of Anthony Johnson.

During black history month, we rightly celebrate men like black abolitionist Frederick Douglas and Martin Luther King, Jr. At pivotal points in America's history, these men took a stand for equal rights for black Americans.

But it's time we honor the achieving black Americans who have taken advantage of those rights, applied their skills, overcome obstacles, and achieved their piece of the American Dream. Though thankful for their freedom and opportunity, many now rail against the culture of victim-hood that sadly contributes to high black unemployment, black-on-black crime, and the explosion of fatherless families in black America.

One such man is...
