Thoughts on Independence Day
MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY THEN.
RELIGIOUS NUTS? RELIGION WASN’T BORN IN OUR NATION AND REMEMBER THE CRUSADES?
TECHNICALLY THE COUNTRY WAS ALREADY STARTED. WE UNFORTUNATELY KILLED TO EXPAND IT BUT WE AREN’T THE FIRST TO DO THAT. IT’S APPALLING, I AGREE AND IT MAKES ME SICK BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT THIS DAY IS CELEBRATING.
IT WAS MORE THAN JUST DUMPING TEA. IT WAS A STATEMENT AGAINST THOSE SHITTY TAXES.
I’M NOT EVEN GONNA GET STARTED ON THAT WHITE MALES THING LIKE WOW REALLY PROGRESSIVE TO BE BASHING WHITE PEOPLE LIKE THEY AREN’T THE ONLY ONES CELEBRATING, ESPECIALLY NOT IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD.
Remembering things that happened in history and trying to make sure others remember them isn’t saying “AMERICA SUCKS.” It’s people like you that caused America to be created, acting their country is perfect and doesn’t need improving.
But fine, get butthurt over things that happened and should be remembered on days like today. That this country was built on death and slavery. It doesn’t mean this place is bad, because most countries were and most countries aren’t bad. This is actually a very good country.
You just don’t fucking forget history. It’s important.
