    My neighbor came over and asked if I was going to do fireworks today. I told her no and that I do not celebrate the 4th. She asked me why and I told her I didnt want to spoil her fun. She insisted I tell her and I eventually relented. I told her that my ancestors were still enslaved on this day even though a man that looked like me was the first to die in defense of this country.

    Why celebrate anything? We all die and it amounts to nothing, anyway. All is vanity.
    All.

    Many black patriots fought and died in the Revolutionary war for American independence.

    But I guess it's still your freedom of choice to spit on your ancestors heroics that we celebrate on the 4th of July. ... :cool:
