Democrat Maxine Waters criticized the Declaration of Independence in a July 4th tweet, implying it is a racist document due to the fact it was written 250 years ago when slavery was in America.

Waters tweeted:

"July 4th… & so, the Declaration of Independence says all men are created equal. Equal to what? What men? Only white men?"

"Isn’t it something that they wrote this in 1776 when African Americans were enslaved?"

"They weren’t thinking about us then, but we’re thinking about us now!"

In contrast, most Republican and Democrat colleagues in the House celebrated the 4th July, but Waters instead decided to focus on the racism in the country’s history.

Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) tweeted that 4th of July is about freedom “for white people.”

“When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people."

“This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”

Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) also did not have much good to say:

“Let us reflect on the full story of America today."

"Black people were not freed in 1776."

"Despite a system stacked against us, we must continue to use our collective power to change that system."
