Posted on 07/04/2020 7:18:15 AM PDT by Stravinsky
July 4th is U.S. Independence Day. But D.L. Hughley, the comedian and author, suggests in his new book that all U.S. holidays "be put on a probationary period to ascertain their relevance and value to All Americans, acknowledging that days off are nice and that mattress sales must occur ..."
His book, co-written with Doug Moe of the Upright Citizens Brigade, is Surrender, White People! Our Unconditional Terms for Peace.
"I used to always tell this joke about, well, today, as we celebrate our Independence Day, well, not all of us," Hughley says. "Some of us weren't free for a little while after that. But you know, anything for time-and-a-half and a slab of baby backs. But it's just one of those inconveniences that we tolerate because ... people don't want to upset a story. And it's one of those things ... everybody knows it's not true. Everybody knows Christopher Columbus didn't discover America. Everybody knows Thanksgiving is a little bit more sinister than we celebrate it as. But it's kind of our story in America. When you're Black in America, the best thing you can develop is a sense of amnesia ... we shouldn't have Google and we shouldn't be able to access the truth, because that's the only way that you can kind of make sense out of all these things."

So we should all be slaves to the state under communism?
in the immortal words of john lennon...
‘YOU’D BETTER FREE YOUR MIND INSTEAD!”
Just when I thought there might be hope for NPR...after they ran a piece questioning the wisdom of,the need for,this lockdown...they release this cr@p.
Yes. It freed us all. There are no slaves still alive.
It freed “most of us” though. One step at a time.
If white people surrender, they’ll kill us all.
The first one to mention race is the racist.
A lot of people in the US didn’t feel very “free” back then. Why do you think so many people headed west? There was a lot of crap going on in the cities of the Northeast.
There are as many stories about life in the US as there are people. And sometimes race played a part and sometimes it didn’t. As with all countries. Japan is arguably the most xenophobic nation on the planet. Maybe a bunch of black people should move there and protest.
Does dildo brain know that the first official slave owner in America was a black man?
Listen up, punk - I never owned slaves and you never picked any cotton. Go to Hell.
Maybe he should move to another country.
When you’re Black in America, the best thing you can develop is a sense of amnesia and try to Forget that YOUR ANCESTORS SOLD YOU INTO SLAVERY!!!
Quite a few years ago when this POS, uh, POC had a tv show we thought while in Vegas we would catch his live show. WOW! Most hateful racist crap I’ve ever heard. We left early. A disgusting POS would be too kind. Guess who AIN’T oppressed. DL.
Where are black people treated better than in the United States?
Why do you want to destroy the system that made better lives possible for Black people than anywhere else in the world?
Just STFU - YOU have always been free. I have never owned slaves.
People like him are going to keep saying this kind of crap as long as there are enough people with White Guilt who will listen.
No, of course not. That was a stupid question. Forget I asked it.
