Independence Day 4th July, 2020: American Presidential nominee Joe Biden shared his message on independence day saying that Our nation was founded on a simple idea: We’re all created equal.
Joe Biden added “We’ve never lived up to it — but we’ve never stopped trying. This Independence Day, let’s not just celebrate those words, let’s commit to finally fulfill them”.
We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal, but we never lived up to it. Jefferson himself didn’t, he held slaves, women were excluded, But once proposed it was an idea that couldn’t be constrained.
It survived the savages of the civil war, the dogs of Bull Connor, the assassination of Martin Luther King, and more than 200 years of systematic racism and the death of George Floyd few weeks ago, through it all, these words have gnawed at our conscience and pulled us towards justice, he said.
American History is no fairy tail, its been a constant push and pull between two parts of our character, the idea that all men, women all are created equal and the racism has torn us apart, Joe biden Said.
We have a chance now to marginalized, the demonized, the isolated , the oppressed, a full share of American dream. we have chance to rip the roots of systemic racism out of this country.
We have a chance to live up to that words that founded this nation. This independence day lets just not celebrate the words. Lets celebrate that promise and commit to work, the work we must do to fulfill that promise.
We remained locked in battle for the soul of this nation, but believe me, truly its a battle we can and we will win if we act together.
Happy Fourth of July, 2020.
