Regardless of the dubious origins supposedly just identifying people (IMO a load of horse manure but whatever), it was used for several centuries as an identity for genocide, enslavement, oppression, discrimination, etc. To deny that is simply to deny history. I know that's what is usually done but, sheesh, can we at least be honest during so-called Black History Month?
