In[5]:= Apart[1/((x-1)(x^2+x+1)), x]
1 -2 - x
Out[5]= ---------- + --------------
3 (-1 + x) 2
3 (1 + x + x )

You want to find {A,B,C} for which the identity holds for all x. This
may be accomplished with SolveAlways and corrected syntax (Bx is an
"atomic" variable, not equivalent to B*x).
In[6]:= SolveAlways[1/((x-1)(x^2+x+1)) == A/(x-1) + (B*x+C)/(x^2+x+1),
x]
1 1 2
Out[6]= {{A -> -, B -> -(-), C -> -(-)}}
