    I was In a "Q" joint today, and this white guy when he got his food told the sista behind the counter "happy Independence day". She,I, and others just had that blank look on our faces. I don't know what they were thinking, maybe it was the samething I was thinking.

    "This day is not for us"......and it isn't.

    But he had this big smile on his face as if he wanted us to be just as joyous.

    Me personally see this day as a day off with pay...nothing more, nothing less.

    Oh..and I get to set off explosives.

    But to celebrate as if my race was included in this victory, and to think these words below was written with us in mind is foolish, and shows a lack of knowledge of our history in this country.

    Peace!

    Oh no! I'm going to reveal my lack of knowledge right now!--I wonder what does "Q-joint" mean!?

    Anyway, I feel the rest of what you said! A few years ago, I recall when this gorgeous Nigerian young woman said to me as a matter of factly that she does not celebrate the 4th of July, and she said it very sternly. I never responded back to her, but I thought then as I do now, that she is so enlightened. My heart went out to her because she felt the need to tell me that, and deep down inside, I believe that she did it out of respect to the kind of history that goes behind this holiday, in that it is based on the time when 'we' were stuck and oppressed in chattel slavery..for about another 89 more years!!!-- and for many, the count still goes on...!
