Adrianne Curry: "Boycott Black History Month!"

Adrianne Curry:

The original America’s Next Top Model winner Adrianne Curry is speaking out against Black History Month and cable network BET (Black Entertainment Television) on her MySpace. The 25-year-old reality TV star is married to Christopher Knight, who played Peter Brady on The Brady Bunch. Leave your thoughts on her rant in the comments section! Here’s Adrianne‘s post:

“This is gonna be hard guys. I LOVE the comedians on BET. I also LOVE the fact that they play my favorite show of all time, In Living Color. However, I do not believe in seperating ANY RACE in America. WE ARE AMERICANS! How dare we have Black History Month! In my eyes, the Native Americans deserve it MUCH more, seeing how we destroyed their ENTIRE SOCIETY. There are hardly any of them left! They also have been proven to have the WORST living conditions on their reservations. I want AN AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH. One where we learn about EVERY race, ALL OF OUR LEADERS, EVERYONE! I think by having a month dedicated to one race, and not one for any other, is RACIST. Every fund set up to only help people of one race is SICK and RACIST.

Adrianne Curry: “Boycott Black History Month!”

Yes, I get it. Black people were slaves here once. You know what? That does suck some major balls, however, it is time to move the f*** on. Do we hear the Jews crying that they were made slaves for thousands of years? Do we hear them whine that they should OWN the pyramids in Egypt because THEY broke their backs making them? Do we hear them b**** and moan about Hitler, etc? (my hubby is a Jew)Nope, we dont. It’s time for us to UNITE AS ONE. I do not think that singling out one race, giving one race opportunities to go to college (I know a TON of poor white.asian, indian, american indian, etc etc that could use that too!), giving one race the EXCUSE to blame things on others for being whatever nationality they are, is a good way at making sure we NEVER kill racism.

I am over this s***. WE ALL CAME FROM ONE BLACK WOMAN FROM AFRICA, THAT is our EVE! It has been proven by science, and I stand by it. If any other race had a chanel dedicated to just them, we would think it was racist. If any other race demanded a month be set aside for ONLY them, they would be considered racist. I am NOT living by this double standard any longer.

Think I am racist? I am not. I know what racism is. I dated a guy named “Justin” in Junior high. Nothing serious, but I really liked him. He was the blackest of black…BEAUTIFUL skin, kinda like Alex Wek’s. He was handsome, and athletic, etc. I was called a nigger lover. But you know what? I was called that by a whole 2 people out of a school with HUNDREDS of students. THAT is why I am NOT buying this racist s*** anymore. Let us teach or children that there is NO DIFFERENCE! We are all human. I hope one day aliens land and try to kill us. Maybe THEN we would finally realize that WE are ONE.

So, I will no longer tune into BET. This is going to suck, but I do NOT like the idea of having a chanel for only 1 race. In the year 2007 in a country that is supposed to be the most advanced and equal. This is unexceptable! I will also no longer acknowledge Black History Month. Instead, I will see it the way that Morgan Freeman does (I have the quote at the bottom of my last blog on Obama/jesseJackson, and OJ). AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH! I will read/watch/and learn about ALL the people who made a difference in this country.

I am asking you ALL to join me. Black, White, Indian, Asian, Russian, Australian, etc etc…..lets be AMERICANS together! What happened to the African American community was AMERICAN HISTORY, not BLACK HISTORY. If you want to celebrate in a way that excludes others and singles one race out, count me the f*** out! I am soooo proud to be an American. I am SO proud that I have friends of every race, and none of us see each other as anything but what we are..people. Lets change Black History Month to 2 months of AMERICAN HISTORY. We will still learn about all the black leaders and people who made a difference….just not with the racist name of “Black History Month”. It has to start somewhere. I am going to do my part in making sure we are all treated EQUAL in a country that CLAIMS we are. NO MORE SPECIAL TREATMENT FOR ANYONE WITH ANYTHING!

It will never happen. At least, that is what many of you will say…FINE! My number one priority here is being able to die and know that I stood up for what I believed in, and that I did not add to the SEPERATION OF AMERICANS!! I love my country, I love the people in it. I love our history, good and bad. We should LEARN from it,not dwell in it and not move forward. That’s why I am done with this s***. You are all my brothers and sisters…..even if I think you suck ; ) As Bono said, “One life, with each other..sisters…brothers!”

Note:: Opinions are like a**holes, everyone…we all have em! Please, respect each other here…listen…even if you dont agree. No name calling. I have a confession…The topic here (black history month/BET) is not what my message was about… I just knew it would get a lot more attention if I used it as an example. My message is to BECOME ONE. AMERICANS, celebrate things as such, not label them this or that…Black History month should NOT go away…but it should have it’s name changed to AMERICAN HISTORY..and be made into a few months…to teach us EVERYTHING about our history…not just focus on one race. Yep, I have a hippie view of the world, and I dont care!! I am not saying to stop celebrating and remebering our history, good or bad. I AGREE that we need to teach MORE on american history concerning what we teach during “black History month”. I am not writing this to take away anything from anyone…we need MORE OF IT, but WITHOUT the race title!!!!

she really needs to shut the **** up.
she’s such a hypocrite IMO.

# 3

I’m Chinese (another minority) and I must admit, I do agree. I feel very much neglected in this country and I never understood why there are never any other history months to represent MY people.

I don’t think you can really understand this unless you’re another minority yourself.

# 4

Whatever! We as African Americans get ONE MONTH – the shortest of them all and believe me….most Americans don’t even respect that month! Take your issues to Jena, LA and see how far that gets you. She really needs to shut up and do her homework. BET won’t miss her…TRUST!

# 5

Wow, I think that she has good intentions but is really uneducated on this issue. In theory we should all be one but in reality there are some race’s that have in the past and still are suffering from oppression and we must first solve these problems before we are one.

# 6

Well..I won’t touch that..That is a loaded gun!
Whether i agree or not..If she feels so passionate about it.She should have chosen a better format and venue..I think she wants publicity…And that is the saddest of all…

There are both American Indian History Month and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

There is an Asian history month, it’s sad you don’t know that honestly #3. Google it.

Adrian Curry’s 15 min has been over for so long. Yesterday I saw her on Dr. Phil, her and her sugardaddy. She’s pathetic.

Black History month wasn’t created because Black people suffered so much in America. It’s really about highlighting contribution made to America that would otherwise be forgotten by mainstream society. It’s a shame that mainstream society doesn’t acknowledge the contribution of others and would otherwise turn a blind eye to such contributions, and hopefully in the future the case will be that there is no need to emphasize such contributions by creating a month dedicated to them. I’d like to know how much Ms. Curry knows about Black history, honestly, the only part of Black history she seems obsessed with is Black slavery. Contributions made by Black people in this country goes far beyond slavery, how insulting.

Anyway, BET should be boycotted due to it’s crap programming. And BET isn’t the only other station that caters to a certain ethnic group. There’s also Univision, Asian television depending on what part of the US you live. Why single out BET?

Adrian Curry obviously doesn’t care for Black people much. Tyra should revoke her Top Model status, ‘cuz if it wasn’t for that Black woman no one would even know who the hell Adrian Curry was.

My mother is teacher and she made sure black history month was recognized, why look at the history books, very little is said! I’m black and there have more contributions besides Frederick Douglas! Somebody needs to slap Miss thing into reality!

melis: so they should let it go. if blacks were wronged at some point, but we are all supposed to have mended fences and now look beyond race, why devote a month to dredging it back up? it’s nothing but reverse racism.

ohhhh heeeell naaaa

She is such a typical white girl. I dated this guy named “Justin” who was the blackest of the blackest-like Alek Wek. When people try to justify they are not racist they always make claims that make them sound SUPER racist. Saying that she dated a black guy who was extremely dark does not validate her stance at all. And “dated” should not be equated with let him *** in her ****. She needs to shut her pretty little mouth and let her **** do the work–it got her this far.

SHE IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!! I WISH ALSO THAT THIS COUNTRY WOULD REALIZE WHAT IT IS….A MIXTURE OF ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE LIVING THE AMERICAN DREAM TO ALL BE FREE AND UNITED AS ONE. SADLY, I BELIEVE THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN BUT WE CAN ONLY HOPE.

I agree with her. I am sick of people saying all they want is equality, but having a month completely dedicated to one group is absurd and not equal. Racism is diminishing, we only hear about it nowadays because it is the exception, not the norm. The common arguments of black poverty and the ghetto as examples of inequality are remnants of a previous era that has not yet been successfully overcome, but they are improving, against all speculation to the contrary.
I have spent the past 4 years studying and researching this particular topic, so, while I may not be of the minority myself, I do have access and knowledge that goes beyond the often ignorant people on these types of message boards.
cheers.

I agree with her. It’s funny how black people can have BET and it is not racist. If there is a white entertainment channel, all other races will jump up to protest. Any activity,fund,organization etc. sets up for people of one race is racist. Black people make themselves different and separated from other races by playing race card in everything from getting job, being fired, going to jail, being arrested etc.

I see someones looking for attention

Are you serious. She went from being a top model to a jackass.

Why single out the Blacks. It is National Hispanic Month Right NOW!!!!

sonhadora @ 09/22/2007 at 1:18 pm

there is as asian heritage month (may) and an american indian heritage month (november), and a hispanic heritage month(mid sept-mid oct),…. black history month is just more well-marketed than the rest. if we lived in a perfect society we wouldn’t needs months to celebrate our diversity, we’d celebrate it year round, but the world isn’t perfect.

Maybe she should use google… because almost every minority in this country have a month that celebrates their heritage

I watched the show “growing up Brady” and thought she is a little childish. However, I think she is quite a smart girl after reading her older post about someone broken into her car and this time the race stuff…

Morgan Freeman once said the easiest way to get rid of racism is to not mention them. I get sick when there is a suspect on loose, the news would not mention “black” or “African American” but if victim is black, then the news would love to make a fcuking big story out of it…

They get rid of Lincoln’s day and Washington’s day, but still have this MLK’s day and Cesar chavez’s day. I think that is total BS. As a Chinese, I live here in the USA and I’m an American, I never try to force the government to honor us a Chinse month or so. When does it end? Should we have a Gandhi’s day,Bruce Lee’s day, Japanese day and etc?

I personally thing those black history month is for people who like to whine and cry out loud so they can get attention and free college edcation for free. After, slavery is history and it is at least 150 years ago, why can people move on? As a Chinese, I don’t cry about the Japanese torturing my great-grandpa during WW II, I don’t whine about Chinese being used as free labour buring Gold Rush Era…

People need to get a real lives and move on!

this girl is a complete idiot, boy does she play into the stereotype that models are dumb. why isn’t there a White History Month you say? Because every month is one. Christopher Columbus and other European explorers stole land from and massacred hundred and thousands of Indians on their way to “discover” the New World, and our children are only taught about how great they are? And when we turn on our TVs, all we see is a White Image, please don’t try to argue with his point by citing Oprah, Tyra, etc. Every leading character of a prime-time TV show is White, and here this idiot is saying that we don’t need Black History Month? That we’re all the same? We’re not all the same because our history is founded on racist principles (Slave trade, laws that would only allow white males to own property, Immigration Laws for Europeans but against natives of other countries, our 50+ white presidents).

she does not get this because she is a white, and by being white only she is privileged, of which she obviously can’t see how privileged she is. dating a black guy for a while is not the same as being black your life and living in America and taunted with racial slurs. this girl just doesn’t get it.

What is wrong with her? aside from desperately seeking attention. She talks about destroying Native American society. Uh… hon…forefathers did that too in other countries during colonization, slave trading, creating new countries/borders in mixed tribal lands. She is an idiot who needs a lesson in remedial history. She needs to spend some time not trying to be ignorant and racist.

Actually, she is the one raising an educated, academic point that one will find in many scholarly articles: to continue to position (think and speak of) something as separate or “minority” is to only continually reinforce its minority status against the dominant, hegemonic force.

Admonisher @ 09/22/2007 at 1:26 pm

Amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its about time SOMEONE on this planet had the balls to say what everyone else is thinking. God bless her and I agree 100%!!! Get over it blacks, your not the only race on the planet who has been oppressed and enslaved….your just the only race that has a viable platform (America) for lauding guilt over people. I for one will continue to ignore black history month….lets have an Asian- American history month, a Jewish American history month, Hispanic American history month and every race that makes up this great country!!

Your not special..your just one of us..and thats why you don’t want you “time in the spotlight” to go away.

I’m so over the “guilt” of slavery…..

LOVE ANGELINA @ 09/22/2007 at 1:26 pm

WTF?!?!?!??!?!??!?!?!?!??!?!?!!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wait a second????????????

Did Black people mistreatment Native Americans???????????? No they didn’t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Were Native Americans slaves in this country for over 40 years and then after they were released from slavery did they have to endure years of segregation and racism? NO Do they have a group called the KKK attacking them at every corner? no they don’t.

This woman is stupid. I love everybody and just let me say. Native Americans have been hit hard, but African Americans deserve that fcuking month.

We haven’t gotten any money or casinos for slavery. we don’t have nothing.

How dare she say that??????????

You need to some research Adrianne Curry, and every person and other people wanna forget slavery and the civil right movement.

Black history month helps honor that. We need that month, hell its only fcuking a month and its not a full one at that. Depending on the year, its a short one. Its all we have.

It honors Martin Luther King Jr. and all the people who helped get us equal rights in this country.

I love everyone, but if you don’t know what the fcuk your talking about don’t say something like that.

This woman don’t even got no Native American blood in her.
