*I understand why a lot of black folks refuse to fly the flag on the 4th of July. The United States’ legacy of racial and ethnic oppression is a tragic, disgrace that underscores the hypocrisy of the so-called “Land of the Free.”

As the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stated with accusatory eloquence:

“America has been a schizophrenic personality, tragically divided. On one hand she has proudly professed the noble principals of freedom and equality and on the other hand she has sadly practiced the very opposite of those principals!

Yet, as a black man in America, I have no qualms about flying the Stars and Stripes. So, on this 4th of July week, I’d like to tell you why. Check out my video then go to the message board and tell me what you think.

Thanks! And happy Independence Day! — Cameron
