Damn Fool!': New Black Panther Says Blacks Shouldn't Celebrate 4th Of July -- Like 'Red Men' Shouldn't Celebrate Thanksgiving

"Thanksgiving represents the genocide of the redman and redwoman"

 

According to Black Panther spokesperson Chawn Kweli:

"Black people know full well that when America talks about the pursuit of happiness, it's not talking about you.  I see you out there, some of you out there on the 4th of July runnin’ around lightin’ all kinda fireworks, big fireworks on the 4th of July. What the hell you celebrating?  What are you celebrating?"

[...]

"What are you lightin' the firework for?  That’d be like the so-called Red Man, so-called Indian, probably -- that’d be like them sitting down on Thanksgiving giving thanks for Thanksgiving.  Damn fool!  Thanksgiving represents the genocide of the Red Man and Red Woman. Why would they sit down and celebrate that?  What do you have to gain, taking part of American holidays and subcultures?"

This quotes are from the July 16, 2012 broadcast of National Black Panther Radio.
