Danny Kemp.

This was a comment I found on a group in Face Book and I choose to add mine.
Too Tall
Why is there a Black History Month? Isn’t that reverse racism? And why is it still Black History Month, instead of African-American History month? Don’t things like this keep us divided? Why not just a history month when everyone celebrates the history their particular group had? Where’s Irish History month, Polish history month, Spanish History month, well hell we’d run out of months before covering a smidgen of the various groups that contributed to the rich history of this country. Where is Chinese History month? I think it’s time we got over all this divisionary bs. You’re born here, you’r American, that’s it. No hypens needed.

I like your comment about being born American and ALL should be referred to as such, without any qualification to that status. I’m English but I’m not allowed in census forms to say that, I must be British. All forms of discrimination is wrong, we are what we are and share a world that despite us survives. We go a long way to destroying its construction for want of the understanding each other. We tell our granddaughter that if you were blind and someone helped you cross the road, why would the colour of that mans skin be of any consequence, it’s his help and kindness that is noticed. I feel shame over how the English and the rest of my nation treated most people in this world down the centuries, but it was not me. The past should be remembered as a guide to what wrong we have all done to each other and how not to act in the future. Some day, soon I hope, we can all live together with only a glimpse at our past and all our attention on that shared tomorrow.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
