Protesting the Fourth of July?

Protesting the Fourth of July?

Apparently, activists in Raleigh are planning to boycott and protest the Fourth of July…

Community activists and advocates in Raleigh and in Durham are urging their social-media followers to boycott the Fourth of July this year, telling people not to buy hot dogs, not to buy fireworks. No celebration, they say, until the nation lives up to its values.

“I hope it’s going to start a chain reaction,” said Durham minister and activist Paul Scott, repeating the call he’s been making on social media for weeks.

“People are asking, ‘what can I do as an individual to make things better?’ Well, one thing everybody can do is boycott July Fourth,” Scott said on his Instagram. ABC 11

I’m not sure I understand what the point of this is.  Most of the activists who hate Trump and think he is a bigot think the founders were too.  Shouldn’t they always be boycotting the celebration of rich old white men who stole this country from Native Americans?
