Why Are Nubians/ Blacks Going To Be Celebrating Independence - Day :?:
Because.. even though we still feel the effects of slavery. Were still free. And Independent.. I will celebrate for those who do not have what little independence we have here in the U.S of A!
Because they're told to by white people. There's no reason black people should feel the need to celebrate anything this country celebrates, because this is not our country in the first place. Also, black people should not celebrate American independance from Britain because blacks were still slaves at that time. That's just pure stupidity and ignorance.
The slave that thinks he's/she's free is subject to eternal bondage....
when the master is sad the slave feels sad...
when the master is free the slave feels free...
Yet still a slave...eternal bondage indeed
I have a better question to ask - because I believe it is not what you do, it's how you do it:
HOW do you plan to celebrate the 4th of July?
Black people will celebrate "the fourth" as it is more affectionately called because for many it is a day off of work, a reason to Bar B Que (if they ain't started already), a time for family gatherings, a time to vacation, they want to watch firework displays, it's a tradition, it's a good day to get drunk or high and socialize or because there's nothing else better to do. For all the reasons Black people celebrate "the fourth". America gaining independance from British rule in 1776 is not one of them.....
My suggestion - forget the Nubians, stop complaining, and just think about where "America/U.S." would be today if it hadn't gained its independence. All else is relative.
Nubians/ Blacks don't celebrate that day, the so-called negroes do.
it's the 4th again yall
are things any better ... different for us ?
The reality of the matter indicates our social and economic condition is getting worse, Destee.
Black people better wake up.
