Why blacks should not celebrate July 4th

July 4, 2008

Frederick Douglass said it best when he said:

Your high independence only reveals the immeasurable distance between us. The blessings in which you, this day, rejoice, are not enjoyed in common. The rich inheritance of justice, liberty, prosperity and independence, bequeathed by your fathers, is shared by you, not by me. The sunlight that brought light and healing to you, has brought stripes and death to me. This Fourth July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn.”

He continued……..

“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 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.”

No Independence Day is not a day for blacks. To join in such a mockery of democracy with whites is to play the fool. This is not our country. We own almost nothing. We have silenced our calls for reparations except for Conyers’ yearly HR40 resolution. Black people are a tool of whites. A few of us are allowed financial success so whites can divide us and then comfort themselves with negative stereotypes for the rest. Black people have turned our backs on each other for material gain. We have forgotten who are enemy is and have sought to erase our blackness in a quest for material whiteness. We are no better than the white men who enslaved our ancestors for such treason. We have literally sold our souls to the devil.

What hypocrisy to claim unfair treatment at the hands of your government and simultaneously enslave Africans! Whites are somehow able to hold two conflicting ideals are the same time without ever having to resolve that conflict. They use several techniques to do this, not worth discussing now. All we need to know is that whites as a whole will never act in the interest of black people. If our interests happen to overlap then so be it but it will never be done our of love for us. We will continue to be killed, incarcerated, exploited and the like because we tolerate it and toleration of evil is acceptance of the same.
