    Social media users commemorated July 4's Independence Day by starting an “#AmericaWasNeverGreat” hashtag on Twitter.

    The trend “America Was Never Great”, a riposte to Trump’s campaign slogan, blasted the reductionist, rosy view of the nation’s history celebrated on July 4, which obscures slavery, racism, sexism, homophobia, and the persecution of Native Americans.







    Many #AmericaWasNeverGreat users celebrated and shared Chris Rock, who famously blasted July 4 as “white people's independence day” , because many people were enslaved at that time and did not have independence.

    Wtf are they still complaining about? None of these fucks had to pick cotton. Women have been enslaved since the beginning of the human race and you don't see us bitching about it. Fucking Africans were only enslaved for a couple of hundred years.

    Dividing America along racial lines the most it's been since the 1960's, will be Barrack Obama's legacy.
