    Thank you for your recognition of Black History Month. I think that it is fantastic and I really appreciate the effort. I am a Black snowboarder! One bit of constructive criticism, however. We are a Black Americans. We are NOT African! Our origins are from Africa but over 400 years of our history is here in America. During Black History Month we recognize the contributions that Black Americans have made to American history not in Africa. While the picture of Africa that you posted represents some of our history prior to slavery. The picture of Africa should, in all actuality, be replaced with an American flag because we are American not African! At least accompany it with and an American flag. While Africans and African Americans are both Black, there is a vast difference between the two. It is almost the same as saying that all Asians are the same. This is not true. I hope this makes sense. Thank you!

    (grammar corrected) Thank you for your recognition of Black History Month. I think that it is fantastic and I really appreciate the effort. I am a Black snowboarder! One bit of constructive criticism, however. We are Black “Americans.” We are NOT African! Our origins are from Africa but we have over 400 years of our history is here in America. Black History Month recognizes and celebrates the contributions that Black Americans have made to “American” history not in Africa! While the picture of Africa that you posted represents some of our history prior to slavery. The picture of Africa should, in all actuality, be replaced with an American flag because we are American not African! At least accompany it with and an American flag. While Africans and African Americans are both Black, there is a vast difference between the two. This is similar to saying that all Asians are the same. We know this is not correct. I hope this makes sense. Thank you!
