Independence Day Playlist
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. [ Preamble of the Declaration of Independence]
Hahaha....right! Those words meant absolutely nothing to Black folks back in 1776 when the Declaration of Independence was created and hardly holds a lot of value for us today.
It seems, the more that I grow and educate myself, the more I understand that these holidays weren't made for us. However, each year we go out and spend our hard earned money and patronize these companies who could care less about the plight of Black people.
But if we must conform and adapt, let's at least do it with some flavor!
While you're at your family cookout today, be sure to plug in this playlist and save me a plate!
