Today in America most people will be celebrating what is known as Independence Day or The 4th of July.
The Black Fist and those of you of like mind feel the complete opposite. We feel no independence and no reason to celebrate.
Black people were in the wicked throes of AmeriKKKan chattel slavery in 1776.
General Nikki X would like to take a moment on this national hell-a-day to give a little, How should I say this, aaahhh yes, ode to the 4th of July.
HAPPY 4TH OF U-LIE AMERIKKKA!!!
STRIPES - represents the whip marks on our backs. The beatings-usually performed by another slave-were done in front of all the other slaves; thus terrorizing the others into submission, as well as creating disunity.
STARS - are we saw when we were getting our asses beat by our overseers/officers and were forced to perform back-breaking slave labor in the hot deep-south sun.
RED - is for the blood of the black soldiers that fought and died to help America gain its independence. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and the "founding" fathers would then label blacks as slaves/three-fifths human beings/private property in the Constitution of the United States.
WHITE - YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BLUE - is how our forefathers/mothers felt when they were stolen from Mother Africa and never given reparations for over 300 years of forced, free labor.
I am not included within your glorious July 4th anniversary! Your independence only reveals the immeasurable distance between us. Your rich inheritance of justice, liberty, prosperity and independence obtained by your forefathers, is shared by you, not by me. The sunlight that brought life and healing to you, has brought stripes and death to me.
This 4th of July is yours, not mine.
You may rejoice. I must mourn.
- Frederick Douglass
July 5, 1852
