i really liked this past episode of blackish. the musical theme was a bit of a dud but their point i get.  why are we celebrating some of these holidays?

i used to hate history class.  all those dates to memorize! anytime i had a question about what the rest of the world was doing (e.g. chinese dynasties, african history) i was silenced.  when i asked why do we say columbus ‘discovered’ a land that was already fully populated; teacher said not to question. but question i did and i still want to.

what do these holidays actually mean? i’m not saying don’t break out the b-b-que come july 4th or hunt for eggs over easter.  but let’s at least get a clue as to what it’s all about and decide if it’s something you want to do for yourself. i for one gave up columbus day a long time ago and am considering adding juneteenth (thanks to the johnson’s)…

halloween!! how on earth did that get started?  hit me up and let me know what you find…
