independence Day is a Widely Celebrated National Holiday in America “Land of the Free” I laugh every time I hear the phrase Every year millions of Black People spend billions of dollars celebrating July 4th, America’s Independence but I wonder if African American know them history On July 4, 1776, America would adopt the Declaration of Independence which would mark its Independence from Britain but whose Independence was it? The harsh reality is that while “Americans” were celebrating their Independence but Black People were still being beaten, raped, and tortured While the “Bombs Burst in Air” Africans in America would continue to be enslaved and The adoption of the Declaration of Independence meant nothing to Black people who would still suffer enslavement for almost 100 more years So with that in mind I ask just as Frederick Douglas asked in 1876 “What is July 4th to me?”

Capricorns are often pessimistic in their way of thinking at times that they try to make sure they have a plan for every possible scenario that might happen. This is usually done underneath an exterior of calm detachment.
