So out of my boredom, I began to think about things.
"What is it?" Was my first reaction a few years ago. Along with all of the others I have mentioned this holiday to.
A holiday most people don't even know exists, and they should. It makes me so sad that most blacks are so ignorant to their heritage, (and I'm not excluded from from the bunch.)
Instead we celebrate this white America's Independence, and put our own in the back of our minds. Where no one can see it, hear it or celebrate it. Exactly like the invisible acknowledgement on the calender.
Why is it that we as "strong" black people let things go so frivolously, we except things that are given to us, and don't fight for more.
- Is it because after all those years of slavery we have learned to settle for less?
- Is it because we don't like confrontation?
- Or maybe its because we're scared?
- Maybe its because we have all developed the house Nig__ syndrome?
Whatever it is maybe future generations will make it better. Instead of a heritage lost.
