the truth is America had an independence day, a day of freedom, when they enslaved a whole race... thats wrong... Even though we didnt get our freedom tell the late 1960's, i choose to celebrate juneteenth instead of 4th of july... get over it... Slaves built a country they didnt want part of and then was shoved down. On 4th of july they made black people watch fireworks that represented our independence in a black only section... fu*k that we got our own independence day...

wow those were stupid comments

slaves didnt get to choose what food,clothes,and shelter with there paycheck they were given it as overhead price for the slave master business
they couldnt quit working at the plantation if the opportunity of better food,clothes,and shelter arose at another plantation...................................:just stop:
fu*k you're right they did work for free. They did not receive food, clothes, and shelter for working. Thanks for the enlightenment. The US was a socialist country back then and every citizen received those three necessities regardless of their employment status.

I also learned that not having the option of how you make and spend your money means that you work for free.

Also can you please expand on the slave masters overhead and how that differs from the overhead of companies now? Thank you.

man get the fu*k over it yall aint slaves anymore.

Yes, its sad what has happened. But god damn man, its like staying with a woman who cheated on you while you hold the sh*t over her head for life. Yeah she fu*ked up but if it bothers you that much why stay with her?

If you decide to forget about it...eventually it will be forgotten and then it won't matter, we won't look at a world of "ex-slaves" and "ex-slave owners" we'll look at a world of "humans"

dummies
youre really comparing it to a woman that cheated??

i dont really see a problem with. I dont celebrate it for the same reason, but best believe imma make the best of my day off.

told my homeboy (he white) pretty much what chris said and he hit me wit the typical, oh i didnt know u were a slave. I never understand that statement, July 4th is a celebration of that day in history, not present day. So on that day in history blacks were not free. plain and simple. Blacks celebrating independence day is like native americans celebrating Columbus day
people who were never even affected by 9/11 will always want to remember that sh*t n have a memorial every year for it years down the line and even pearl harbor....but were not allowed to mention american slavery

I understand the hyprocrisy part...at the time it was. But at the moment is it really hypocritical to celebrate your freedom? Do we still have slaves? Do we still oppress only the blacks? No, we oppress the poor. Racism is still alive sure and you have to deal with it yes, but when you want to look at a country waging war on a specific group, our country is waging war on the poor, not black people, not mexicans, they are waging war on the lower class.

So basically where I'm coming from is, you can either try and be a fu*king wet blanket and bum everybody out on a god damn holiday, or join your friends and celebrate the fact that you don't have to give 80% of your paycheck to the government without being told why. Obviously Afrocentric does not mean educated. Like I said, if you have such a problem with America why stay? I'm not saying "every black person needs to go to africa" I'm saying "every person who has a problem living in america needs to go somewhere else where they are comfortable living"
whites make 100,000+ on avg, blacks and hispanics make about 5,000 on avg...so the war on the poor is still a war on minorities

Chris, Your people SOLD YOU to the white man...

Chris, The white man FREED you...

Chris, If it wasn't for the white man, you wouldn't have all that money and fame...

People need to realize what ACTUALLY happened...Yes white people bought slaves, but who the hell sold them?...

White people independance day..Please..You've had it made ever since you got famous cause of the white man...Why the fu*k you wanna bi*ch about it...YOU GOT IT fu*kING MADE...And still want to complain...I'm white and I GUARANTEE my life is harder than Chris Rock's...

Whatever, though. I guess I "don't understand" ... But maybe you people who complain and use it as an excuse should look a bit deeper into YOUR OWN DAMN HISTORY.
lol your screen name fits your rant...

I know Im gonna get flamed saying this on a predominantly black forum but...


equal opportunity does exist and for the most part I think companies would give the job to a black dude over a white any day

what about college scholarships?
I was a middle class white dude with outstanding grades in high school
there were black dudes that I know that were higher class then me had the same if not lower grades than me and somehow they got scholarships

hhhhmmmmm?
happens WAY less than you think....affirmative action actually works in a white woman's favor moreso than a black person's


so stop exaggeratin dude

sometimes it's hard to know how evil your immediate ancestors were...I'd be pretty pissed and defensive about it to, if I knew my ancestors were as heinous as white folks were back then

Don't worry you won't get a logical response, you will get the tired "are you comparing blah blah to blah blah blah" this is what you get when there is no logical rebuttal.

what puzzles me about this whole discussion is why would would anyone get upset about a black person saying they dont want to celebrate the 4th of july because of the history of the holiday being independence day when the history of our ancestor were not free at the time when the holiday was enacted. its not like black people are saying the holiday shouldnt be celebrated or its racist to celebrate the 4th of july.all that is being said as a black person i choose not to celebrate because i dont see how it pertains too me just like a jewish or a muslim person wouldnt celebrate christmas.

that first reply is amusing if chris rock does have "staff" though.
dude he lives a town over from me, hes such a pretentious bi*ch. He lives amongst the white people and hates on every single one of them. I dont think anyone of my friends who have seen him have said hes nice or even said hi back to them. Parks in the handicap spot outside starbucks and runs to his car to avoid kids... shady.

What makes you feel that they're Uncle Toms, my man? And why do these folks not count too? There were a decent sized amount of Blacks that despised British rule and took action to help stop it.
