News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

The problem with Black History Month

As part of Black History Month, Tuesday's paper featured several accomplished blacks from history. Among them are a politician, an inventor, a boxer, and a soldier. There are many people who have played small parts in the vast history of the world, and it's nice to see them getting some recognition.

But that's just the problem: There are many people who have played small parts in the vast history of the world. Thousands of people. Tens of thousands. But only those with a certain skin color get recognition. Others are lucky to be remembered outside their family: maybe they're remembered in their home town, if at all.
