A woke California school board member is calling for people to boycott the Fourth of July, claiming 'there is no reason to celebrate' America's Independence Day. 

AnaMarie Avila Farias, a third-generation Contra Costa County resident and member of the county's board of education, shared a fading blue and white image of the United States flag on June 28, along with the words 'BOYCOTT 4TH OF JULY,' on Facebook

'I haven't celebrated 4th of July since 2016 and I don't think it's a holiday to celebrate' Farias wrote in a Facebook post. 'What do you think?' 

The elected official's stance on the federal holiday prompted a mixed bag of reactions from people on her private page, some agreeing with her while others were critical.

Another agreed him with him, only to ask: 'Why? The holiday celebrates declaring independence from Britain's tyrant King George III. You wish we were still subjects of Britain?' 

AnaMarie Avila Farias, a school board member of the Contra Costa County Board of Education, said on her Facebook page that she didn't think the Fourth of July was a 'holiday to celebrate.' She shared a picture of a fading American flag with the words: 'BOYCOTT 4TH OF JULY'

Avila Farias responded to a few comments under the controversial post, on one replying: 'I am not feeling particularly patriotic.' She later added: 'Lastly, last Friday women's reproductive rights were taken away. We are not in a place of progress or celebration when human rights are being taken away.'

'I am not feeling particularly patriotic,' Avila Farias replied. 

'I am especially not interested in celebrating a holiday centered around freedom from oppressive government when that freedom is not a reality for so many people in this country. Lastly, last Friday women's reproductive rights were taken away. We are not in a place of progress or celebration when human rights are being taken away,' she said.

The woke school board member didn't stop expressing her opinion there.
