Have you heard the latest? Being an indentured servant only pays about $176,000 a year. Yes my friends we have several folks from Congress who are not free. I call them indentured servants, but they say black folks aren’t free, so I guess they call it slavery.
Just think about this. Back in the day when Democrats legally owned slaves, did they ever think that some day they would be paying slaves about $176,000 a year?
When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people.
This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.

July 4th… & so, the Declaration of Independence says all men are created equal. Equal to what? What men? Only white men? Isn't it something that they wrote this in 1776 when African Americans were enslaved? They weren't thinking about us then, but we're thinking about us now!

So Congresswomen Bush and Waters can not enjoy the freedoms that white folks have. I guess $176,000 doesn’t buy that much.
