Black history month is just

As the country diversifies and more ethnicities and cultures become prevalent in the U.S. and at SJSU one may wonder if Black History Month is still needed.

In a recent opinion published in the Spartan Daily on Feb. 21, the author wrote many reasons why Black History Month is now irrelevant, one reason is that African-Americans have come far enough to no longer need a month to celebrate the history of their culture.

I was disgusted to read the point that America’s first black president represents the ultimate accomplishment of the African-American community.

The author said this is a reminder of black history every day, so why would a month still be necessary?

An attitude like that makes me say that the celebration of black culture and recognition of black history with Black History Month is more necessary today than it ever was.

Just because there is a black president in the White House does not mean that African-Americans are no longer struggling with the chains that were placed on our wrists during slavery and there is no more progress to be done.

Staff at Goldman Sachs staff can look forward to the biggest bonus payouts in the firm's 140-year history after a spectacular first half of the year, sparking concern that the big investment banks which survived the credit crunch will derail financial regulation reforms.
A lack of competition and a surge in revenues from trading foreign currency, bonds and fixed-income products has sent profits at Goldman Sachs soaring, according to insiders at the firm.
Staff in London were briefed last week on the banking and securities company's prospects and told they could look forward to bumper bonuses if, as predicted, it completed its most profitable year ever. Figures next month detailing the firm's second-quarter earnings are expected to show a further jump in profits. Warren...

-The last day for suspicious trading on American and United Airlines. Today, three years ago, the Chicago Exchange sees the purchase of 4,516 put options on American to only 748 call - 60 times above normal. On the Pacific Exchange, the trading ratio on United is 25 times greater than normal. Later, investigators can't help but notice that no other airlines saw such trading in their put options.
