February is "Black History Month" all over, including here in the Dominion Of Canada. From former Governor-General Michaelle Jean on down, black personages have made a great contribution II the Canadian multicultural mosaic (as have many other ethnic groups.) We are a richer nation in having their presence. As a white anglo saxon who is the son of an immigrant from The Netherlands myself, I can truly appreciate just what a positive influence immigrants such as yourself Thomas have had in binding this nation together! We need II encourage young students of all races, religions, colors, & creeds II learn about black history & respect it, as well as learning about their own ethnicity. It will make them stronger human beings inside!
