I hate 4th of July. Or as I like to call it 4th of You Lie. My ancestors who were slaves weren’t free in July 1776. Still slaves, the slaves weren’t free until 1864. Only the founding fathers dressed in powder wigs + effeminate silk stockings enjoyed the signing off of the so called independence (Ha) . With that said, what I can’t stand about the 4th are those fireworks the worst being the M-80’s. If you don’t know what they are go look it up I don’t feel like explaining, but what I will tell you is that when you hear them go off it sounds like your in the middle of a war. It’s a sound that you really don’t forget, but for some reason the idiot people love to shoot off within the city limits. I guess the fact that lighting up the fireworks is ILLEGAL, UNSAFE, COULD CAUSE A FIRE isn’t what concerns some folks. No, of course not , hey people just want to have their fun & who cares about all that right? Next year I’ll try to be out of town. Hopefully somewhere were there won’t be any stupid fireworks. I don’t celebrate the 4th. I celebrate June 19th also known as Juneteenth. When the slaves were free it was actually on June 19th 1866 two years AFTER the emancipation proclamation. Just to give you a little history. Better start researching a quiet getaway next year. But unfortunately ignorant people are everywhere.
