No Independence Till We Get Freedom!: Picture us coolin’ out on the 4th of July

OK look, I’m fat, I’m black, and I live in Memphis; I can eat BBQ swine any day of the friggin year if I choose. But not this year; nope, not today. Let’s just say that a brotha got a few things on his mind on this traditional day of celebrating all things American.

Yeah, I could go down the list but you probably don’t need to be depressed today; nor should I make you feel guilty for washing back that big-ass homemade burger with red Kool Aid. So I’mma let this following mashup video from my man Davey D do the talking.

Yep, a brotha ain’t really down with celebrating right now while the jury is out on the Oscar Grant trial out in California. I mean, why add the extra pounds to what I already have when I just might have to strap up and put on my famous racism chasing running shoes soon, right?
