Who Says We Aren’t Patriotic?

Black folks on Twitter celebrate Flag Day right along with everyone else.


(The Root) — Though we’re notorious for being very vocal about how we’re not celebrating patriotic holidays like the Fourth of July, there are still those among us who have a bit of red, white and blue in our hearts.

Friday is Flag Day, a holiday that commemorates the adoption of the American flag. It’s also considered the birthday of the U.S. Army. Though it’s not an official federal holiday, many celebrate it across the nation, and on Twitter.

Black folks got in on the online lauding and celebrating, too. Here are a few Flag Day tweets from Cousin Larry and Aunt Ruth.
