Major ethnic groups of USA are EAs fourth of July; Mexicans Cinco De Mayo and AAs. But where is our holiday for our history? And if you say Martin Luther King holiday why do most of us not celebrate? Sure people love the day off or work but why don't we celebrate as other groups do for their days. Yet AAs love to pop those fireworks on July 4 when at the time of the signing of the declaration of independence blacks were not even seen as 100% human. Shouldnt we have our own declaration of freedom and pop our fireworks on our own day?

What should we call our freedom holiday? Should it be when slavery was abolished..or when Jim Crow Laws ended.? Any thoughts?

Think about it, you can celebrate National Witch Doctor Day. National Bone in the nose Day. National Spear chucking Day. National Ooga Booga Day and some many more.
Think about it.
When you return to the caucus mountain caves of Russia I might think about it :)

Unfortunately, we still don't have the freedom that we should. Our right to vote is in jeopardy due to the latest Supreme Court's decision:

No, I have to disagree with you on that point about being mixed. Just about everyone in America is mixed with something; black, white and everything inbetween. It's only a matter of how diluted that mixture is.
But I do agree, rather pure black (whatever that means) or anything else, there's nothing to be ashamed of.

You shiftless nignogs could celebrate "fathers day", but that would be a lost cause in the ghetto, how about "Independence Day"? Naw, that wouldn't work either for obvious reasons, what about "Black Friday"? No, dat bees raciss & sheeit, let me get back to you.

Most people in America are not mixed with nothing. The ones who are, the mixture is too small to even talk about-the races in this country are endogamous, they rarely mix outside their group, and most live in seperate neighborhoods. If you referring to african americans, The ones who are mixed, have the mixed blood from generations ago, not in their immediate family, which is why most black Americans do not look like a mixed race ethnic group..they look like black people from everywhere else.

That's because your people love white people and other races too much. You have become too engrossed into white culture so you lost your own identity.

Remember black people, this is what we are dealing with.

"Albinism (from Latin albus, "white"; see extended etymology, also called achromia, achromasia, or achromatosis) is a congenital disorder characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes due to absence or defect of tyrosinase, a copper-containing enzyme involved in the production of melanin. Albinism results from inheritance of recessive gene alleles and is known to affect all vertebrates, including humans. While an organism with complete absence of melanin is called an albino (US /æl&#712;ba&#618;no &#650;/,[1] or UK /æl&#712;bi&#720;no &#650;/)[2] an organism with only a diminished amount of melanin is described as albinoid.[3]

Albinism is associated with a number of vision defects, such as photophobia, nystagmus and astigmatism. Lack of skin pigmentation makes for more susceptibility to sunburn and skin cancers. In rare cases such as Chédiak–Higashi syndrome, albinism may be associated with deficiencies in the transportation of melanin granules. This also affects essential granules present in immune cells leading to increased susceptibility to infection

AA's can take a shyt without asking boss man first.

Instead of staying our azz home making our own holiday, we ask, ask, ask, protest, protest, sign petitions and wait for white approval.

Boss man, can I take a shyt?

Nobody else in this cotton field ask for a shyt break, they take their shyt break. Not AA's.

Mixed is mixed. They put small amounts of flourine in our water and say the dosage is so small it doesn't even count.
There's still flourine in the water.

I'm not saying this as a negative towards the mixes among our races. I think it's a beautiful thing. But trying to tell a person what race they are and the qualifications therein is a waste of energy and genetics don't really care about our arbitrary qualifications.

Real life case: Slave master has child with black woman. Over a Hundred years thereafter, each generation of the woman's offspring are black with typical black features except for one child in modern day having light skin, with grey eyes - the ONLY ONE with grey eyes.
After tracing the family backwards over a hundred years, they come to understand that genetics are what they are. And we have a black man with some white features. But, so what? Are we going to tell him how white he is versus how black he is? Doesn't even matter.

AA's celebrate their holiday with gunfights, stabbings, and looting.

I agree to a certain extent. Some pride themselves of the rape of the slaves by white men. AAs distance themselves from Africans due to their gross superior attitudes over all blacks who are not born in Africa...from AAs to the Hatians and Carribean blacks. And yes some of us need some pride. I am unsure of why they have none. I am proud of the way we fought Jim crow laws and for equality. Many were hung, beaten and killed to give this current generation the freedoms and oppurtunities we have today. A handful of whites classified as n**ger lovers died in this fight also.

Yes but am unsure of who this is for and what it is about. Care to enlighten us?
