Fireworks scare my dog.

So I’m not a fan of the 4th of July for many of the reasons a lot of people of color are not. The main reason is Junetenth is when Black people got freedom in America around 100 years later. British freedom only counted for people who were thought of as American and not property. Also my dog is freaked out by fireworks.

So we don’t really do parades as much as we do fireworks and cookouts. I use the day to sleep and eat really good food that I don’t have to cook at other people’s houses. It is perfect in it’s own little way.

My favorite fourth of July food is Tamales.

So I took my nap and now I’m ready to get back to fighting the good fight to get kids out cages. Because we can’t celebrate freedom if we are not all free.
