BC Question: Do we still need to celebrate Black History Month?

Quote to Ponder:  “We recognize then that the greed of bureaucratic capitalism in America, the effectiveness of the police force of the ruling circle, and the swiftness with which their ‘message’ can be sent to these territories has transformed the previous situation. We recognize this when we admit that the United States is no longer a nation but an empire.” -Huey P. Newton
