The signers of the Declaration declared that “All men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Only thing is they meant for white people not black people or anyone else.
Because Slaves were not even “freed” until almost a hundred years later.
That means almost 100 4th of July celebrations celebrating independence and that “all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”where going on while at the same time those people owned,murdered,and/or raped other human beings.
On July 5, 1852 fugitive slave Frederick Douglas gave a speech entitled “What to the slave is the fourth of July? Here are some statements from his speech
“This Fourth of July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice must mourn. What to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelly 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 denunciations 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 these United States, at this very hour”
In his speech, he refers to Independence Day as “the birthday of your National Independence and your political freedom.”
He made it clear how much he hated the treatment of slaves as well as the hypocrisy and irony that was obvious on this day
What is the 4th of July to a conscious African American today????
Y’all can go home. Put away your hoodies and cancel the vigils. Pick up the race cards, the game’s over. There is no more racism in America. The Texas Attorney General said so.
He says “they” a lot when referring to the left(liberals/democrats) when talking about the outrage being fake but last time i checked 99% of the people outraged in the streets protesting are African Americans. Its almost like he wants to but he knows he just cant come out and say “black people”
One of the things he says is:
“All these people supposedly calling advertisers of this program. There was no angry consumer outrage. It was all trumped up. The same thing was attempted with the Trayvon Martin case. To create a false reality, to make it look like the country is as agitated as the left is, but it never is. The country is never as roiled and as agitated as the left is. They can succeed in upsetting people. But the object lesson here is to, from this point forward, just don’t believe them.”
Now who is he talking about? Please click the link and check out the full story.
[To an African American female caller]: “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.”
“the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”
“Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”
[When a Hispanic man won the New York marathon]: ”An immigration agent chased him the last 10 miles.”
[when Sandra Fluke spoke at the congressional hearing]: “ …what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex….”
-America goes insane
This list could go on forever but as long as its he is not talking about a white male or female nobody will care as usual
