Apparently, The new black trend is to put niggas on blast for partying on any occasion that isn’t directly related to pan-Africanism....

….Which is basically every holiday in the U.S.

You constantly see quotes from our wonderful ”Woke” community such as “you’re celebrating your Master & oppressors holiday” like niggas out here kicking it for National “Own a slave” day. There are only THREE reasons black people celebrate holidays:-

1. To get a day off of work

2. To have a reason to cook

3. To party and get drunk

.....that’s it.

Recently, The Hotep community has lashed out against black folk for celebrating St. Patrick ’s Day, stating that black people are more enthused about a White holiday than a Black holiday. Well, unfortunately we are too busy shitting on each other for not being “Black enough” & “Too black”  to collectively create an Alcoholic influenced celebration for memorable days in black history such as Juneteenth. Contrary to the popular conspiracy belief, St. Patrick’s day isn’t a day that white people celebrate their whiteness and all its glory.    St Patrick’s day is a religious holiday that recognizesthe introduction of Christianity to the island of Ireland, So celebrating it is the same as celebrating Christmas, Good Friday, Easter, Halloween, Mardi Gras and many more.

  The thing is,the westernized celebration of St Patrick’s Day amongst millennials has absolutely NOTHING to do with the true tradition of holiday. No one showed up at the crack of dawn in river north to perform ritualistic historic Irish traditions.Niggas was out there to get DRUNK!

I have NEVER sat down with my homies and said “Hey, let’s take a moment out of the day to Recognize the great patron saint Patrick for his heroic feats of bringing Christianity to Irelandand ridding the land of all snakes.” The only thing I’m recognizing on St Patrick’s day is the right to eat corned beef and Drink Guinness at 9am in public without being judged. Getting shitfaced at 9am to recognize the Patron saint of Ireland is equivalent to dying bunny rabbit eggs and eating candy to recognize the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

St. Patrick ’s Day is celebrated throughout the world by many cultures. If someone tries to give you shit for celebrating because you’re black, just tell them that St Patrick is the Patron saint of Nigeria, and then walk away.
