Black History Month: a wretched 28-day miseducation of American children in public schools who aren’t told about all the bad things blacks are able to get away with today, and who are force-fed factually flawed (if not completely fictional) history about how bad slavery was.

At least that’s how Mychal Massie, a black conservative, views it. The columnist and pundit penned a piece for World Net Daily, published Monday, describing the evils of the month.

"Feb. 1 began the 28 day 'ceremony to injustice' that is nothing more than an aversion to modernity that encourages people to mire themselves in the past juxtaposed to embracing the present and the future," Massie, who is also the former chair of the Project 21 National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives, writes.

"Black History Month is used by the nefarious and the corrupt to divide, to evoke blame and guilt, and often for personal gain. Public school children will be immersed in a 28-day vat of a factually flawed and at times fictional history of how bad the blacks had it in America, and they will hear that whites are privileged and their ancestors had slaves, blah-blah-blah."

To prove his point, Massie claims that the things you truly won’t hear about are harmful transgressions of black people such as the "knockout game," for which blacks aren’t "shot on sight." This surely proves that America is more tolerant, he states, but that won’t be talked about in the classroom.

"They won’t be talking about the fact that blacks aren’t shot on sight in areas where 'Knockout' is taking place. For those unfamiliar, the Knockout game is what black thugs play where they suddenly and unexpectedly punch unsuspecting white persons in the face for sport," he says. 

"The physical injuries and emotional trauma white victims suffer during these attacks are viewed as 'minor,' and in the majority of cases, the attacks don’t even make it on the evening news or into the newspapers ... And it is paramount to note that these attacks are taking place across America—and it’s happening outside the ghetto. I’d say that shows America has advanced a long way because, according to the racialists flooding the classrooms and airwaves, blacks were barely suffered to walk on the same sidewalk with whites."

Massie also complains that while Trayvon Martin "will be lauded for sainthood ... as an example of white injustice," after George Zimmerman shot and killed him, white victims who were murdered at the hands of black offenders would go unnoticed for the month. 

"You won’t hear that the same black man in the White House, who was quick to stir the caldron of racial animus in the Martin situation, has refused numerous attempts by the families of these two British students, tourists who had wandered into the neighborhood where [Shawn] Tyson gunned them down in cold blood because they were white, to show them a modicum of compassion," Massie writes.

One thing Massie fails to mention was that Zimmerman was not initially charged in Trayvon's death, and was only brought to court after huge national outcry. In the end he was also acquitted for the murder. Tyson, however, was sentenced to life in prison in 2011 for the murders of James Cooper and James Kouzaris.

Massie then—after slamming the president, Attorney General Eric Holder and the NAACP—calles for the end of Black History month, saying he is tired of the lies the month helps perpetuate.

"I'm tired of the lies—charlatans posing as eruditionists and parroting myths and distortions about what slavery was or wasn't. Jim Crow is over, and the only overt segregation taking place today is perpetrated by black groups such as the Congressional Black Caucus, the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panthers," he says. "Slavery has become a crutch for blacks. It is the excuse used for retreating from modernity. Slavery happened; the United States had the good sense and decency to move beyond it. Now it's time blacks got over it and moved forward."

"It's time to send Black History Month to the ash heaps of history. It's time to teach all children factual history, not just a manufactured history used to force guilt on white students and victim status on black students. It’s time we teach students that blacks do not own the market on past suffering and injustice. It’s time we teach that every population group who arrived here had extremely difficult times at first, but, unlike the majority of blacks, they rose above it," he adds.
