 Jul 7 - 'White History Month' Float Stirs Controversy At July 4th Parade
topic by Ham Rove - 07-07-2013, 02:02 PM


A small North Carolina town's Fourth of July parade was mired in controversy after a float touting "White History Month" drew a number of complaints from parade attendees.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Saturday that Hope Mills, N.C. parade included a float attached to a John Deere tractor, driven by local farmer Donnie Spell. The float included a large wagon filled with watermelons, and featured a sign that read "White History Month. Hug WTE PPL." A Confederate flag was also attached to the tractor.

"This should be over, all that stuff should be over," Hope Mills resident Suzanne Singletary told ABC11. "I don't understand why people are still living like this."

ABC11 reports that Spell applied for and received a permit to participate in the parade. However, according to town officials, Spell said the sign on his wagon would read "Watermelons for sale."

Hope Mills Mayor Jackie Warner told the Fayetteville Observer she had received a number of complaints about the float, and that the parade's board would review the float application process to prevent similar incidents in the future.

"I believe we've got to make sure we're sensitive to all people's feelings," she said

*First of all i really dont care, but i feel as if they technically already have 11 damn months.
*Secondly, their history is filled with so much controversy idk what they will actually have to celebrate
*Finally, Black History month is a time period in which Black people can say against all odds, we overcame so much and "these leaders/people MLK etc..." helped us to obtain freedom.

SN: White people NEVER struggled or had to overcome ANYTHING as a group,culture, or race. EVERYTHING they have accomplished has been at the expense of others so personally i have no idea what they would like to celebrate. Would somebody like to inform me??? They say we learn something new everyday and this will be a excellent learning experience for me.

Give them month but without the editing and watch how fast they will want to stop it.

Well its impossible for that to happen because we have EDUCATED BLACK AND HISPANIC PEOPLE now so if they did try to present an edited presentation, there would be so many people to shoot down their claims and present actual facts. I dont believe that they have learned that black people can read and write now. Not all of us receive government handouts or live in the hood. Still curious to know the various aspects in which they plan to celebrate tho. Somebody let me know please.

The only reason that Black History Month, Women's History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, etc. exist in the first place is because those groups' contributions were consistently excluded from the text books and history classes. Also, white history is infused in every part of American society. Visit Washington, D.C. Hell, pull out your wallet and look whose face is on the currency. Turn on your TV.

I took some classes post-bachelors to try to earn my teaching certification. I wanted to become certified in social studies. The school required that I take both U.S. and European History. Why wasn't I required to take African history or another group? Because this society doesn't care about the history of non-European people; therefore, they don't feel that knowledge is necessary for me to be a history teacher in a public school, but European history is necessary, though...

It's not really about/for us though. It's more for them. They white-washed PoC history. That is why white people swear all knowledge begun with them. They also think they invented any and everything when in truth those ideas were either stolen from PoC or not taught that a PoC invented it. But oh I know, white people always have no issues believing word of white mouth stereotypes, racism, and statistics but don't let some PoC present them with some facts. They want sources out the a.ss. They would be surprised to see who really receives the most government handouts.

yea most people don't understand..."white" history is being taught year round, so until history teaching is changed...there is a need for "black" history...otherwise it would be non-existent all together
