“White History Month” Flyer Found at Mercer University

With Black history celebrated by many in the month of February, students at Mercer University in Georgia were looking to even out the score. A flier posted in residence halls and around the school’s campus is causing controversy for promoting two months dedicated solely to “white history.”

The “White History Month” flyer stated that white students did not have their own cultural groups on campus, since others would think that such clubs would be racist. The flyer demanded that whites get two history months, since there is so much white history to cover — that statement alone shows the inherent problem with the flyer.

So is it unfair that white students don’t have a specific month, or groups dedicated to their culture? Give your opinion in the comments section below.

    I feel that the white students simply want to make a point… I’m an international student in the US… I’m from. A Caribbean country, so I am used to differnt races infact I am a mix race myself. I honestly feel that black people having their own day does send a message to the rest of America that they are keeping segregation. I personally feel that no race should have a separation; we are all people. Black, white, red, green… made in God’s image.
