Shameful: Aaron Sorkin, Left celebrate Independence Day by slamming America; Update: Chris Rock joins in; Don Cheadle laughs along | Twitchy

Never waste an opportunity to bash America and play the race baiting game. News flash, we dont have slavery anymore and im pretty sure non of you black people alive now were ever slaves, so quit going out of your way to find something to whine and cry about. I realize most of you will always see things through race, but you know what? Youd be better off and a happier person if you didnt.

And if you live in America, and have such a problem with it, get the hell out then. Thats to people like Chris Rock. How many millions and millions has he made for not being funny in America? Only to bash it when ever he gets the chance. Get out you unfunny, over paid, jerk. Move to Africa, Iran, North Korea.

You owe an apology to ALL of the Black service men and women who have fought and died for this country from the American Revolution through the Afghan and Iraq wars.

How ignorant and disgusting of you to start a self absorbed, bigoted thread on the nation's birthday.

Some people have no sense of decency. And you call yourself an "American"? You should be ashamed. You need a reality check.

I agree with you calipoppy, don't hold your breath waiting for an apology though.

Why is it that threads like this never get closed...?

This is going to be another long-winded thread of over 50 pages of race baiting.

I seriously thing the mods like seeing this type of stuff. It gets their rocks off.

You should denounce the people he is referencing unless you think their characterization is accurate?

Excuse me? Why dont you read the tweets at the link and then get back to me. Dont shoot the messenger if you have a problem with the message. I dont owe anyone anything. Notice I put "SOME" in the title. Dont make this out that I think most blacks hate America.

What's wrong with it? He is responding to tweets by black celebs bashing America for historical wrongs as if no country on earth has faults.

As Calipoppy correctly points out Blacks have fought in every war this country has ever had and even before that. They are one of the earliest ethnic groups in the country. Blacks in America are wealthier, more educated and enjoy a far better standard of living than any other Sub-Saharan African descended people on Earth.

So why shouldn't African Americans celebrate the 4th of July? Why would Black celebs choose to bash America on its birthday while simultaneously ignoring the many positives of the Black experience in America?

I think it's the height of bad taste to run this country down on a day when we're all supposed to be celebrating its founding. The Chris Rocks and Aaron Sorkins of this world are without a sense of shame. To hell with 'em.
