Amazing article. I don't celebrate Fourth of July either. We have to ask ourselves, who was free in 1777. Only white land owners were considered full citizens. So they can celebrate all they want. I will be reading, writing, and talking to my family about more important things on the 4th.

This country has been built from slave labor and the genoide of Native people. Absolutely deplorable.
