This is long but i promise you it needs to be said. And if you choose to read it thanks. We are a divided ppl based on our own since of discrimination, bigitory, intolerance, and the accusing of many in our community of not being educated or informed because of belief. When in fact more are turned away in our community because of such things mentioned in the aforementioned. This is a true statement this is the history of this country and part of the history of two races of ppl. While many are correct in pointing out that we were still in slaved during 1776, I think Frederick Douglas said it best in 1852.
African-American attitudes leading up to the Civil War toward Independence Day itself were perhaps best expressed by Frederick Douglass in his 1852 speech named after its most famous line, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” Asking the crowd why they have asked him, a black man, to speak on this occasion celebrating freedom in a country where his people are not free, his oration demands acknowledgement of slavery, “the great sin and shame of America.”

“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 of July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn.”

We African Americans in this day and time are still so in slaved by systems that are weaved through the fabric of our democracy. But what we are most in slaved by in my opinion is the divide that is persistent in our own community. We do so little to affirm the common struggles that every African American goes through no matter how they choose to express themselves, identify etc. So what of the great divide in our community today over what we should and should not be doing. The arrogance of some to suggest just because you do choose to celebrate a holiday such as the 4th makes you ignorant, unaware and your blackness is suspect. Here's the bottom line in our community we are all the same to everyone who is outside of our community what I pray is that our community really come together and the only way that will happen if we accept the things that we don't agree with about each other and agree that we are all one ppl. Whether your, str8,gay, natural, weaved, poor, rich, Christian, Muslim, light skinned, dark skinned, adopted, transgender, etc. Appealing to your own shouldn't be a struggle.
