Black History Month

I never think to celebrate black history month.

I just make it a point to celebrate 365 days a year.

But it's not just history for black Americans.

The lessons are for people of other ethnic backgrounds.

I figure others have more to learn and need to realize we are more than what has been shown.

We are not just professional  athletes. 

We are not just rappers.

Contrary to popular belief we don't have own the market when it comes to getting drugs in the hood. 

We are intellectuals.

We are professionals.

We are educators.

We are so much more than what the media purposely portrays.

So, I thank everyone for using social media, that show black Americans from the past 

that has and will continue to have a positive influence on America and beyond.
