Hispanic Heritage Month & others

Wow, has a year gone by already! Just kidding! I don't follow what goes on when it comes to celebrating this type of event. There is African American Month in February each year. There is GLBT,doesn't look right, but it is the Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender, Pride day in July or August, National Women's History Month in March . Then there are the political organizations like the caucuses in congress. The Veterans Administration has "Minority Veterans Programs" that recognize the following: Pacific Islander, Asian American, African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American - to include American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian. The VA minority programs are based on public law, Title 38 Public Law 103-446
In conclusion how many of these are there? It is amazing that as the Anglo-Euro population and heritage diminishes in the US and minority populations increase what will the future look like? Will there be a White American Male Heritage month or something similar in 2050? Or will history relegate the Anglo-Euro population to asterisks in history books. Something to ponder in this (stupid, literally stupid) PC de-nationalization of America.
