The words from the headline can only be translated in one way, but others disagree. Now tell us if this sounds like it makes sense. There were fliers sent home to elementary school parents in St. Louis that read, “Why I Hate Black History Month” in an effort to publicize a parent teacher organization meeting that would discuss the importance of celebrating black history year round rather than only in February.
Of course, the complaints rolled in and the flier was changed, but changing it didn’t lead to an explanation…at least not a clear explanation. It’s still unclear, at least to me, as to why it would be titled this way to have the discussion on a longer black history month. I know children bring fliers about all types of things going on in their area and in their school. And I, for one, would’ve been shocked to see the initial headline bursting out of my child’s folder.
If anything, it’s possible children would see the flier and say, “Yeah, I do hate it if their going to try and have it longer than February.” Read here and see if you can make sense of it.
