Everyone has history

I don’t know why anyone has to assign a special “month” to anyone’s history because EVERYONE has a history. Every race, every nation, every culture has a history  that is important to them and important for understanding them. If every immigrant race in the world demanded a month to celebrate their history in their adopted countries, there just wouldn’t be enough months to go around. I think the way to go about it is to simply adapt to your new country. If you want your new country to be just like your old country, why’d you leave in the first place? Go back to your old country. When in Rome, do as the Romans. When you move to a new country, be part of it, then it will become a part of you. Follow the rules, learn the culture, learn the manners, learn the language. There’s a good reason for that. It doesn’t mean you have to forget your own past or your old country’s history. It just means that you’re starting a new life in a new country with a new culture. Sharing of cultures is great. Imposing your culture on others isn’t. It’s like joining a club. You join with the knowledge that they have rules that you have to follow. No exceptions. It’s called order. If you don’t like the rules, don’t join. It’s that simple.
