White Heroes of Black History Month
By: Ehimwenma E. Aimiuwu
February 7, 2010
 

 

I would like to challenge Black America at a time were we have the first Black President not to only remember the Blacks who contributed to the progress of America, but rather, to also commemorate the White Americans that lost their lives, risked their careers, and jeopardized their livelihoods for the sack of equality under the American legal system. 

We are fond of Blacks, who were inventors, politicians, activists, and sportspeople, but we fail to mention publicly the White Americans that lost or almost lost their families, lives, and income in order to make sure that the conscience of majority of Americans in Government, Congress, and Supreme Court were challenged to take up the true mantle of equality and justice for all.  Black progress and inclusion into American society would not have taken place without  those godly, peace loving, and progressive White Americans that came out to demand that America lived up to its creed. 

 

Despite the fact that America is yet to tackle the issues of police brutality, racial profiling, and Black unemployment, Black America must publicly celebrate the Whites and Jews that also fought for equality for all, such as the Kennedy brothers and those in the Freedom Riders.  White Americans are the majority, so the success and failure of America rest in their hands.  A show of public gratitude for their courage will go a long way towards making America a greater nation that allows Blacks to contribute to America with a peace of mind.
