As you know, the shortest month in the year was designated as Black history month. Personally, I don’t necessarily buy into BMH because I feel that it’s our responsibility to teach our children our cultural heritage DAILY and not during one particular month.
But who I am I… I have no kids!
Anywhooo, I received the following email from one of my loyal readers who wants your input about an email she received from her child’s school regarding Black History Month:
I have a “RANT” I need to put out there in keeping with the spirit of “Black History Month”. Here goes…My daughter who will be 16 next week attends a private “CATHOLIC” school. Of course she represents the 1% of “us” there. Regardless of that, the school is VERY prestigious and affluent and this is her first year there.
I receive email parent bulletins at the beginning of the week. Well in reading it, they had THIS (see email below) in there. The WHOLE thing is so funny that I’ve been laughing for about an hour behind it.
My question is, should I be offended? It has so many inconsistency’s… i.e. the graffitti (they can keep that for Taco day – IJS), hair braiding, hip-hop dance workshop DURING “club bell”…. Its just too much!
I was hoping you could share with our fellow readers and get their take on it.
