There is a holiday for when the slaves were freed called juneteenth its just not widely celebrated. Plus I think Fourth of July is when america was freed from the british. My friend and I were joking around about wearing Union Jack shirts for Fourth of july.

My Chemical Romance isn't even a good band. They look like zombies. Well, at least Gerard does.
Do they call him Gerry?

I think people should celebrate whatever they want to celebrate. I celebrate Richie Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi's b-days.

Well, the 4th of July is just the holiday celebrating our freedom from England after the Revolutionary War . . . It doesn't have anything to do with the African Americans being freed. Was that what you were saying?? Probably not. Sorry if I misunderstood.

I think July 19 would make a good holiday. ^_^
But July 4 should stay one too, because it's the day American in general were free from England and their own country...
