Amen!

I do celebrate the 4th though and what it means to me. It's when my family came together. Many are gone now and new ones in their place.

Happy to 4th! To my family and friends. May you cherish this time together and leave all your hardships if just for one day.

"What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy — a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States, at this very hour."  ~ Frederick Douglass, July 5, 1852

To Black Americans and people of Black or Brown skin color, living in America, these words are as true today as when they were first spoken
