Celebrated professional activist and face of Black Lives Matter Colin Kaepernick took to Twitter on the Fourth of July to blast Independence Day as a "celebration of white supremacy," posting a video condemning America with quotes picked out of an 1852 Frederick Douglass speech:

Kaepernick said:

Black ppl have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized by America for centuries, & are expected to join your commemoration of "independence", while you enslaved our ancestors. We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all. ✊🏾
