Even if the pugs make it illegal to teach kids about it, it's still a national holiday now.

They should have named it something else. Sounds childish. Freedom Day sounds better to me.

Freedom Day would sound like some cheese ball rally involving pickup trucks and MAGA flag waving degenerates.

Juneteenth captures how I imagine formerly enslaved people in 1865 might have referred to a momentous mid June event.

So says the simpleton. Freedom Day. lol

It's nice to see some formal recognition, now it's time to ditch the asshole Jackson and replace him with Harriet Tubman.

I think it is a sorta bullshit deal.

No police reform.

No reparations.

No one other than Gub'mint workers get a holiday.

But, I have to admit, it was not until very recently that I understood, much less even heard of, what "Juneteenth" was. I had figured that it was something akin to "420".

Especially since it's about slave owners keeping free people in chains to get an extra year of free labor.

Exactly...it's a bullshit day that means nothing that will in fact do NOTHING to help anyone except government workers...which it wont help them either...as the companies that it does affect will restrict the number of 'official' holidays allowed...pick the 5 that you like...toss the rest.

Only a MORON would think this is good!

If it were up to you, there would still be segregated schools and colored water fountains.

I think that creating this day it minimal, but it is also a step in the right direction.

What did the previous POTUS do?

Oh, yeah, he tried to hold one of his rallies on the same (historical) day, and IN THE SAME CITY as the massacre of hundreds of African Americans in Tulsa, OK.

He only changed the date when one of the Secret Service agents told him about the significance of the day. (that's when Steven Miller wept)
