Lets not bash the New Americans for having their independence day. If anyone wants to light up the sky especially any parents; just do it, but 4th of July is not to be embraced as a Black independence day, we were enslaved by the past Americans while the past Americans fought another race for their freedom. The irony and truth in that. Juneteenth is our closest quote on quote independence day, so for Blacks today on this day we do not social gather ever. This day does not represent us, but lighting up some fireworks for your children is fair, lets not neglect our children the activities and the joyful spirit that all children of all races are entitled to. We stand with the New Americans but this is not our Holliday.
