Victoria Jackson, former “Saturday Night Live” comedian turned ultra-conservative gadfly, delivered a rant on Thursday in which she targeted “Black History Month” and suggested that whites ought to create their own annual celebration.

“Now, that the white race is becoming a minority in America, perhaps we need to make … say, January, White History month,” she wrote on her website, according to the political blog Wonkette.

    I watched her on SNL in the 90s, she wasn’t funny at all. I rather for January to be Native American heritage month than the people who took their away from them!

  • Sure, as soon as they find another month with a maximum of 28 or 29 days


    I don’t know why people entertain these kind of comments from White people. It is obvious they are ignorant about history and their own privilege.

    Dumb b!tch

  • .:*whitneyeclectic*:.

    They have history books filled cover to cover with their historical achievements. Centuries, decades and the like. Why are they (those who agree with her) so bent on ONE month (which, mind you,just so happens to be the shortest out of the entire year)? Is that not enough.

    Yeah, her and Keyshia ” I shouldn’t have Tweeted” Cole can have several seats this morning.

    For over 400 years its been white history stole America from the Indians,lied about inventing which blacks started now scared being minority please!!

  • Kenedy

    The white race hasn’t become the minority yet….yes they will…but we should probably wait 100 years after they become minority to establish a white history month…how long after slavery was abolished did it take to have a black history month??? Yes bish, please sit & eat a salad

  • JaneDoe

    364 days of the year.. Why is she complaining

    • I could’ve sworn there where 365 days in a year…

      • TRUTH IS

        lol….minus the 28 days in feb which is black history month….lol…and why black history month is the shortest month of the yr…foul!!

        • I don’t like the fact that Black history has to be limited to a month, period. Watch Morgan Freeman’s 60 Minutes interview about Black History month. Sums up my thoughts perfectly.

        • RAVENS GANG!

          A simple Google search will tell you how Black History Month came to be the month of February.

      • JaneDoe

        I did that purposely but I guess I should have explained.. The barely give us the month of Feburary. I minused the day for Martin Luther King’s bday bc thats really the only day they want to give us.. Take it however you want to

  • ieshapatterson

    Lol is she joking?? And since when did whites become the minority??

    • Trisha_B

      Whites still have the largest group, but compared to other races together (blacks, asians, hispanics, indians, etc) they are the minority. But i agree w/ everyone else, ma’am stop!

  • She needs to take a seat somewhere, with her bow wearing self.
