In less than 140 characters, Rock captured the ethos of one of the most commonly emailed historical narratives in the black community – Frederick Douglass’ “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” In order to fully appreciate the humor, irony and the pain of Independence Day for those of us descended from slaves, I do suggest you read Douglass’ classic speech. As many of my colleagues have pointed out, the speech puts into to bold relief the ignorance of Americans who expect America’s second and third class citizens to celebrate ideals to which they have been systematically denied. For those that think that life is all good for black folk in the 21st century please check – life expectancy, wealth, infant mortality, chronic disease, access to health care, violent death, incarceration, lending practices, police brutality, and/or capitol punishment – see how these things vary by race.
