What, To The Amerikkkan Slave, Is YOUR 4th Of July? – Frederick Douglass

Fuck you! And fuck YOUR 4th of July, you filthy, depraved, debased, white-assed motherfuckers!

What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States, at this very hour.

Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me, that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.

Take the American slave-trade, which we are told by the papers, is especially prosperous just now. Ex-Senator Benton tells us that the price of men was never higher than now. He mentions the fact to show that slavery is in no danger. This trade is one of the peculiarities of American institutions. It is carried on in all the large towns and cities in one-half of this confederacy; and millions are pocketed every year by dealers in this horrid traffic. In several states this trade is a chief source of wealth. It is called (in contradistinction to the foreign slave-trade) “the internal slave-trade.” It is, probably, called so, too, in order to divert from it the horror with which the foreign slave-trade is contemplated. That trade has long since been denounced by this government as piracy. It has been denounced with burning words from the high places of the nation as an execrable traffic. To arrest it, to put an end to it, this nation keeps a squadron, at immense cost, on the coast of Africa. Everywhere, in this country, it is safe to speak of this foreign slave-trade as a most inhuman traffic, opposed alike to the Jaws of God and of man. The duty to extirpate and destroy it, is admitted even by our doctors of divinity. In order to put an end to it, some of these last have consented that their colored brethren (nominally free) should leave this country, and establish them selves on the western coast of Africa! It is, however, a notable fact that, while so much execration is poured out by Americans upon all those engaged in the foreign slave-trade, the men engaged in the slave-trade between the states pass with out condemnation, and their business is deemed honorable.

Your 4th of July is nothing! You sit somewhere waving a flag that has the blood of over a billion innocent people on it all because the premise for this country is based on a lie; a goddamn vicious lie! A country stolen from the Indians by SLAVE HOLDERS; vile white parasites that roamed the earth in search of continents to suck dry, people to enslave and make a profit off of and then turn around and tell bald faced lies about what was done, what is being done. Make claims that slavery ended by getting people to celebrate some Juneteenth bullshit when slavery only morphed into the FOR PROFIT PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. No amendment ended slavery and you lying white trash parasites know this! And yet you pat yourselves on your goddamn depraved backs and laud one another all day and night about how fucking humanitarian and benevolent you are when you couldn’t even get next to those words without bursting into flames, you goddamn lousy hypocrites.

And this bears repeating!

Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me, that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.

“Revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy” is exactly what you white-assed motherfuckers are celebrating today! Take your goddamn bullshit and shove it up your pale white wide open assholes; all you sick and twisted, depraved, debased creatures. Me? Celebrate my continued enslavement at YOUR hands? Not fucking EVER! I spit on YOUR flag! I refuse to sing YOUR national anthem and I refuse to pledge allegiance to a goddamn rag that you fucking shits have raised in the name of theft, enslavement, brutality, torture, war, shackles, chains, destruction and death and that is why your shit is getting fucked up now because ALL the vicious and atrocious shit you’ve done and are still doing is coming home to roost all up your ass! California just experienced a 6.4 earthquake. Alaska is baking and is on fire. There is an alert over volcanic activity in Hawaii and pretty soon, there will be reports that more and worse happenings are taking place at Yellowstone. Your planting season is almost over and the majority of farmers couldn’t even plant half a field, much less enough to keep capitalism running smoothly. What’s not burning up is flooding and we have debased whites to thank for that shit and that is why you are going to reap the vicious and vile shit that you have sown. Yes indeed, celebrate the fact that as you celebrate, your shit is about to get fucked up, big time and there is not a goddamn thing that you can do to stop it. Your credit cards won’t save you. Your bloated bank accounts won’t save you. Your FICO score won’t save you. Nothing is going to save you because you debased shits, not a one of you is worth saving! You are now screeching about climate change and global warming and yet, you are still driving SUVs to the goddamn store and firing up the AC because it is hot as hell outside thanks to your white ass putting all of this shit into play. And now you want everyone else to have issues because of the shit you caused while you feel that you should get off scot-free. Well, that ain’t gonna fucking happen. You depraved white shits are going to be the first to get your shit, fried, toasted, oven roasted, flooded, lightning struck and some more shit because you have made damn sure that people who look like me have nothing to lose. So who the fuck is going to do the losing? Your fucking filthy white ass, that’s who. But you’re so damn stupid, you’re out celebrating the fact that your ass is about to get fucked up! Good! Don’t bother trying to see it coming because there will be NOT a goddamn thing that you can do about what’s coming for your sick, twisted white ass! I am going to love to see you get your fucking due!

So enjoy this day because the next fireworks display, I guarantee you are NOT going to get a thrill out of them! So eat your shit you call hot dogs. Sit back and enjoy a child’s sport on a baseball field. Kick back with a beer, but remember this, your good times are at an end! No amount of the shit you’ve stolen from others, no amount of the shit you’ve acquired off the backs of my ancestors is going to continue to cushion your vile, worthless white ass from what’s coming for you! Your time is up, you filthy pieces of shit! And I don’t mind going out just as long as I know that there is no way in hell that ANY white-assed motherfucker is going to be allowed to continue sucking air. And newsfuckingflash, your white debased ass is NOT going to escape the shit that you’ve got coming to you by you taking your depraved ass to Mars or the Moon or any damn where else. This is it for your ass! You ain’t going no goddamn where in an attempt to escape YOUR fate! HA! I’m laughing at you filthy white-assed motherfuckers! No one is buying your fake ass “you are humanitarian and benevolent” bullshit! TV ain’t enough these days to keep even the brain dead from knowing what your vile asses are up to. Ain’t nobody thinking about the whores and whoremongers of Hollywood. We don’t give a shit for your awards shows for your ability to act. That’s all you do anyway, is act; act like you’re fucking doing the world a favor as you fuck us over. We are awake, many of us as to how foul you white-assed motherfuckers are! And we are laughing at YOU! Every single time I see your white ass wailing because your shit’s been flooded out, I fucking laugh! Every single time I saw pictures of the Kilauea volcano’s lava flowing through your neighborhoods, covering YOUR shit you’d stolen from others, I laughed. When I saw the Midwest flooded out just a couple of weeks ago, I laughed. When I saw the wildfires in Paradise, CA, and elsewhere, I laughed. You own every goddamn thing and so you are the ones who are going to lose every goddamn thing and that is why I can laugh, that is why I get to laugh.

I didn’t go all around the world stealing everything that wasn’t nailed down. I didn’t go all around the world stealing and enslaving people. I didn’t go all around the world bombing people and destroying their countries. I didn’t go all around the world fucking people up while thinking that the shit I’ve done would never come home to roost all up my ass. That’s what you fucking debased whites did and are still doing. But your time is SO goddamn up, it ain’t even funny! So go ahead, celebrate while you still can because soon, you won’t even be able to do that much.

“What to the American slave is your 4th of July?” A day that celebrates the whites revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, which America has always and will always reign without a rival! Fuck YOU Amerikkka and you whites know that I am saying, “Fuck YOU!” Now chow down on that, fucking leeches!

Your Ass Is Too Good For That Rag!

Black girl, you have known such brutality
from the slave fields to Jim Crow.
And yet they expect you to celebrate
what for you has been a hard row to hoe.

You are to display that racist American flag
and watch it wave over land you have tilled.
You have watched your mother and your father
work harder because they were unskilled.

Go sit outside and watch the fireworks display.
Put a couple of hot dogs on the grill.
Donโ€™t forget to eat some apple pie
and then head for the baseball field.

Forget about all the horrors
that this nation has heaped upon you.
Donโ€™t think of all the innocent people
who were killed by this red, white and blue.

Remember what this nation stands for.
And that brutality is sown in the flag.
They have watered down the truth of its history.
And your ass is too good for that rag!
