We are the only race of people in the world that willingly fought for a country while that country was enslaving our race and by law, never giving us the same benefits and rights as the whites citizens in that country (over a period of 144 years). You talk about loyalty?! Our white soldiers have never done this.
As I was thinking about this, it came to me, that in the past 200 years, 95% of white people have never had a black family in their home for dinner (or for any other reason) and 98% of whites would never come into contact with blacks if they didn't have to work with them or sit next to them at a sporting event or walk past them in a shopping mall.
Wells Fargo replaced us with the Chinese New Year (this year), but who will they replace us with next year? Keep in mind, neither the Chinese or the LGBTQ community has ever contributed as much to America as the black race. Our contributions started 157 years before we became a nation - then we gave our lives so America could become a nation.
Salute the LGBTQ community and the Chinese New Year, but please don't forget to recognize us, especially during those times that we should be recognized.
