You know it, and so do I. Black History Month is an effin insult! Black people have been here since day one. Nurtured the cradle of civilization and all that. Black, white, hispanic, Asian, Hindude, we all have that DNA strain in our gonads, so don’t front. And don’t make like Black history started here in America, under the form of slavery. I’m not accepting that scrap of ham from off’a massa’s table. Shortest month of the year to celebrate our history? GTFOH!
Angry Black man? Nah, don’t play me B. Irreverent? Nope, I love my peoples (as I do all peoples) too much for that. So do I suggest we completely ditch February as a celebratory month? Nah. Combat Jack is all about the recycle, preservation of resources, all that. What I’m proposing is that we swap out the word Black and replace it with the word Rap. Rap History Month! Why? Well for one, rap/ Hip Hop culture is still a relatively new art form. An art form that’s gone from being a small subculture to become ingrained in new American culture. Actually, Hip Hop is now ingrained as an important part of New World culture. Internationally known from rocking the microphone.
I know it’s late in the day, what with February almost being over. But being tardy to the party don’t mean that it’s ever over. Extra bonus is that Hip Hop is Black, Asian, Hispanic, Caucasian, we can all celebrate the month without anyone feeling a kind of ways of being left out and such. You think I’m being silly? I’m dead ass. [||]. You know it’s a great idea, a great concept. Plus, when you say it, Rap History Month sounds way better than Black History Month. I already did my part on my site by honoring rap’s first fallen soldier, the late great Scott La Rock of Boogie Down Productions fame. I won’t ever stop. It’s official. February is
Black Rap History Month.
And remember kids, Black History is every day.
