Fourth of July is for ‘White People,’ says Black Congresswoman

Rep. Cori Bush, the Democrat from Missouri, doesn’t seem think think the United States of America is the most exceptional nation on Earth. Nor does she put much stock in us being the land of the free or the home of the brave.
On Independence Day, the black lawmaker posted a scathing rebuke of our great nation on Twitter.
“When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people,” the ungrateful Democrat wrote.
“This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free,” she added.
For the record, the congresswoman intentionally capitalized “Black,” while using lower case to refer to all of us “white” folks.
I reckon she put her white constituents in their lowercase place.
“If I as a white man slandered Juneteenth I would be called a racist,” one disgusted citizen wrote on Facebook. “We have a sitting Congresswoman slandering the founding of this country in which she has benefited greatly and We are supposed to call her a Patriot? Sorry not happening.”
Another wrote, “Maybe you should appreciate the country that gave you the platform to spew your hate, yes it needs work, yes its not perfect, but it allows correction to ‘make a more perfect union.'”
If, in fact, black people are not free, how was it possible for her to attend a private Catholic high school? How was it possible for her to graduate from a Lutheran nursing school? How was it possible for her to be elected to Congress if in fact she is still in chains?
Congresswoman Bush is free to spread her lies and spew her un-American venom because she happens to live in a free nation.
But if she is that oppressed, perhaps Ms. Bush would be more comfortable living in another nation. I’m sure she’d be welcomed with open arms in a third-world hell hole nation.
And to show there are no hard feelings, I’d even be willing to pay for her ticket. As a matter of fact, it would be my privilege.

This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.
Every day, Black birthing people and our babies die because our doctors don’t believe our pain. My children almost became a statistic. I almost became a statistic.— Congresswoman Cori Bush (@RepCori) May 6, 2021
