Independence Day, 2018

What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July?

…  your denunciation of tyrants…  mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy — a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.

— Frederick Douglass, 1852

One Response to Independence Day, 2018

  1. Duncan says:

    Do I think that the framers of the Declaration of Independence saw a nation of feed slaves, women voting and gay marriage? No, but there ideas were bigger than their ability to perceive. At least that is what I tell myself while watering my roof ahead of the neighbors annual fire works and gun bacchanalia.
