The United States of America’s true Independence Day is today! June 19th, not July 4th. 241 years ago, those original 13 colonies demanded and declared their independence from British rule. July 4, 1776, this nation celebrated its freedom, however not all were free! June 19, 1865, almost 100 years later, slavery came to an end. My ancestors were not yet equal, but at least they were free! We’re still fighting that battle to equality. One thing I’ll stand on today and claim as equally mine is this hot mess of a nation. My lineage may run back to the inhumane injustices of slavery, the belly of slave ships that swallowed Mandingo Warriors whole, the blood drenched coast of Africa, the unforgiving jungle of my ancestors home continent. But truth be told, we are all many generations removed from some immigrant. Be it by choice or force. We’re here now. Not slave. Not nigger. Not negroe. Not ‘other’. Not black. Not African American………..American. Happy Juneteenth. #ThisNationsHistory #TheTruthFrees¬†#TrueIndependenceDay #Juneteenth
