Something I sometimes hear from my white brothers and sisters when it gets around to Black History Month each year is, “Tony, tell me again … why we have to have Black History Month? And shouldn’t we have White History Month, too?” That statement is usually followed up by a chuckle in an attempt to take the edge off of what has the potential of turning into an awkward conversation.
I live in Dallas so Super Bowl XLV was more exciting than most to me since it was held here in Dallas. Not only that but the Steelers invited me to come and deliver the chapel service message the night before the big game. The atmosphere was electric.
