I recently heard a white girl say "Why don't we have White History Month", and was sad to hear her attitude. I am white, I grew up with a lot of my family being predjudice against blacks. When I was little I remember asking Santa for a black baby doll, and getting her. I was SO in love with her, but very upset and defensive when my Aunt teased me about having a "n------ baby". I indignantly told her she was black and beautiful. I still have that doll and am still drawn to these beautifully dark dolls and beautiful dark people. I may be politically incorrect and I'm sorry. I lived in Okinawa Japan and was at a flea market on a US military base. Amother and her two little girls were at my booth and I overheard one of the little girls tell her mom how she was being picked on and told she was ugly and stupid because she was black. I went over to that little girl and told her to ALWAYS be proud of her color and herself and never to be mean like that little girl was. I also told her "BACK IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!". I am ashamed of my ancestors being a slave holder and especially how mean she was to the slaves, and tho I can never change the past, I am trying to change the future with what I teach my children. They are adults now and so far so good. So I am thrilled to see how far we have come and I know we still have more to learn and change.
