They celebrate Juneteenth instead. Sorry you missed it. You'll have to wait 11 months now.

For those that aren't familiar, Juneteenth is celebrated on a day in the middle of June which is the approximate time that word reached the outer stretches of the slave states of the Emancipation Proclamation. Since it didn't happen on one particular date, just a general date is used. The celebration began in Texas as this was one of the more distant slave states. From a Black person's perspective, you can understand how this can be an independence day for them, however I know plenty that hold the 4th dear also. Many of those, not surprisingly, served in the military and are as patriotic as anyone.

That's a really broad generalization. I'm pretty sure most of them don't feel that way.

I don’t know that they are actually celebrating Independence Day, but around here they’ve taken full advantage of of the opportunity to illegally shoot fireworks and celebratory gunfire to all hours of the night.

Very broad. I’m friends with a lot of good people who happen to be African American. Some times we need to just go talk to our neighbors and quit buying in to what the media feeds us

The hyphenated blacks hate everything about America. But black Americans love this country because they have love in their hearts not hate for a country that not only enslaved their race but also has fought and died for their and all of our freedoms. I not only served with many but I also employed some fine black folks. Ones heart has to be open before you can change their mind.


saltwater and hardwoods. Heck yes!

Some just can't be happy about anything. Stop living in the past. Yesterday is gone, live today and plan for tomorrow

Race has nothing to do with it. Keep in mind how many whites it took to vote Doug Jones in. There is your problem.

There is just as many sorry white people as there is African Americans.

PS - I'm white.

I hate the term African American, it's divisive. Meant to separate the races. We are all AMERICANS. Be Careful BPI, some Aldeer sorority gurls helped put Jones in office. Some here have a problem with common sense. Some here still harbor negative feelings towards the President and can't admit up much good he has done! Face it common sense isn't common. Trump has our Country running towards greatness and many can't stand it.
God Bless America and President Trump. How many didn't feel their chest swell during those flyovers yesterday!

Thomas Jefferson. The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Well said Perch. I know people who are seething with rage and hatred BECAUSE the country is doing so well with Trump at the helm. To quote Larry the cable Guy: "It's like Elton John thumbing through a Hustler magazine....it don't make no sense".
As for your other point...African American, BET, NAACP, Black History Month, Congressional Black Caucus etc are all divisive and encourage segregation IMO.

You’re either American or you’re not. Nothing African about America.

I believe that was the edit. I wasn't slamming sanderson, but the original comment was a rather broad stoke.

which is pretty sad considering they make up 13% of the population to our 76% you'd think sorry ass white people would out number them by at least 5 to 1
