Words that I overheard while waiting for July 4th fireworks | Brooklyn

“As a black person, I’m telling you don’t come here. Go find somewhere else. People here are willing to get into argumemts over spots.”

July 4th. Not independence day. Independence from the state and the system. Independence from the stereotypes.

“This is why i go to school and get 2 degrees. This is what my mum told me, this is why i go to school. This is why you go to school too.”
