The 4th of July is fast approaching and Americans prepare to celebrate but what exactly are we celebrating?

It's almost that time again, Americans are  gearing up to  celebrate America  gaining it's freedom from the  British. I and My ancestors are Black, we were considered property in 1876, according to the constitution 3/5 of a person. I can't celebrate the 4th of July when I know that My people  didn't  gain any freedom in America in 1776. In fact it  wasn't  until almost 100 years later in 1865, 2 years past the  start of the emancipation  proclamation for all Blacks to be freed in America. I wrote a full article http://theurbantwist.com/2016/06/05/black-conscious-celebrate-juneteenth-keep-european-independence-day-away/ I'd love your opinion. If you celebrate  Juneteenth how  do you celebrate?
