There should be a White History Month in America. That way we can teach all about the things White Americans have done in history, like:

  • Cherokee Trail of Tears
  • Japanese American internment
  • Philippine-American War
  • Jim Crow
  • The genocide of Native Americans
  • Transatlantic slave trade
  • The Middle Passage
  • The history of White American racism
  • Black Codes
  • Slave patrols
  • Ku Klux Klan
  • The War on Drugs
  • Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo
  • How white racism grew out of slavery and genocide
  • How whites still benefit from slavery and genocide
  • White anti-racism
  • The Southern strategy
  • The rape of black slave women
