On July 2, 1776, John Adams wrote his to wife and best friend, Abigail, to tell her that the independence he had long fought for with her support had finally been seized from the tyrannical King George III and the British Empire.

Adams predicted that the anniversary of the day would “be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated… with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports… Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

As one of the most vocal of the Founders in his criticism of slavery, Adams, who called it “an abhorrence,” never considered the use of slave labor, fighting vigorously against the Southern contingent at the Continental Congress in Philadelphia to urge its abolition in the new nation.

Over two-hundred years later, one can only imagine how Adams would view a minute-long video clip of young black men “celebrating” the 4th of July in the hometown of the nation’s first black president.

While former Chicagoan Barack Obama partied in the White House among A-list hip-hop artists and rappers, the plight of black youths raised in the Democrat ghettos of the south side of Chicago – absentee fathers replaced with institutionalized government benefits, their future mortgaged to unionized teachers who regularly strike for higher wages while literacy rates plunge – must have been far from his mind.

But the video clip of Chicago’s youth – staggering and strutting on the streets of Chicago’s killing field, swigging from bottles, brandishing handguns like 9MM Glocks, cheap Hi-Points, and so-called “Saturday Night Specials” – and the “assault rifles” Obama is so fond of blaming for the nation’s ills – at the person recording their “festivities” – is at once terrifying and tragic.

These young men are the future of their city… a place that used to be Obama’s city, too. It doesn’t seem like he cares.
