"Whitey" History Month
"Whitey" retraced US history as he proclaimed February 2012 "Whitey" American History month
"The story of "Whitey" Americans is a story of resilience and perseverance.
It traces a people who refused to accept the circumstances under which they arrived on these shores, and it chronicles the generations who fought for an America that truly reflects the ideals enshrined in our founding documents.
It is the narrative of "the economic and socially enslaved" who shepherded others along the path to freedom and preachers who organized against the rules of "Kings and dictators", of people who "were over taxed and died defending tyrants" and ordinary men and women who took extraordinary risks to "find a" Nation for the better.
During National "Whitey" American History Month, we celebrate the rich legacy of "European" Americans and honor the remarkable contributions they have made to perfecting our Union, often in the face of both racial and gender discrimination.
As courageous visionaries who led the fight to end slavery and tenacious activists who fought to expand basic civil rights to all Americans, "Whitey" American women have long served as champions of social and political change.
And from the literary giants who gave voice to their communities to the artists whose harmonies and brush strokes captured hardships and aspirations, "Whitey" American women have forever enriched our cultural heritage.
Today, we stand on the shoulders of countless "Whitey" American women who shattered glass ceilings and advanced our common goals.
In recognition of their legacy, let us honor their heroic and historic acts for years to come.
The achievements of "Whitey" American women are not limited to those recorded and retold in our history books.
Their impact is felt in communities where they are quiet heroes who care for their families, in boardrooms where they are leaders of industry, in laboratories where they are discovering new technologies, and in classrooms where they are preparing the next generation for the world they will inherit.
As we celebrate the successes of "Whitey" American women, we recall that progress did not come easily, and that our work to widen the circle of opportunity for all Americans is not complete.
With eyes cast toward new horizons, we must press on in pursuit of a high-quality education for every child, a job for every American who wants one, and a fair chance at prosperity for every individual and family across our Nation.
A Nation that is more just and more equal for all its people.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, "Whitey", President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim February 2012 as National Whitey American History Month.
I call upon public officials, educators, librarians, and all the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousand twelve, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-sixth."
"Whitey" ; )
