Happy Juneteenth everyone!

Recommended Posts



The 19th of June is the actual recognized day. It is a day no different for the race of folks who were enslaved than July 4th is for folks who said the King is no longer the boss of me. Not a single one of you was ever the subject of King George, so you should never worry about Independence Day. You weren't there. 

This is one truly sad thread. You should be embarrassed. You know who you are. You know what you are.

What race of folks gained freedom on July 4th? None. A country did. A country of many races.

If this holiday is so important, why did it take 158 yrs and a demented pedo socialist to turn it into a federal holiday? If we're going to start celebrating ethnic holidays, I fully expect to see a Hiroshima Day, A Nagasaki Day, a federal Internment Camp Day, a national Holocaust Day, a day celebrating the Pogroms of Russia, the Chinese genocide...

you know, events that affected a lot more people and did more to shape world history. That's the right thing to do, recognize everyone's suffering, not just the loudest ones.

I have a question... My great-great grandfather (and family) were indentured servants (my guess is today's woke means the same as "slave") He was brought in from Scotland.   Cant get more Caucasian than that.  So, reparations for my grandfather??  I think not!  No holiday for you!!

Really? Is that why only white men could own property and vote?

I am sure there are plenty of remembrances for those in the country they actually occurred in. And you will see a federal holiday for the Internment Camp sooner rather than later. 

That doesn't change what some of you folks said earlier in this thread.

I think it's fair to say that nobody alive today thinks that slavery was a good thing, especially for Africans.

However, what we're seeing today is the rise of black supremacy and treating them as a protected class. I could give 100 examples, but let's just look at TV. We is advertising Allblack, OWN is essentially a black agenda channel, BET is all black programming and actors, producers, etc.

If even a single TV network announced an all white channel - with no black cast or crew - they'd be labeled racist immediately. But it's perfectly fine for multiple channels to discriminate against white cast and crew. That's just one example, and there are many others.

Those were jokes. TBH, even my black friends joke about the lack of father figures in the black community. Ignoring it, or making it a taboo subject isn't going to make it go away, or make anything better.

You're beginning to sound like a snowflake.

BET has been around since 1980. Even before MTV. And it is not all black. There are channels the do lean toward their desired audiences. How can you really have a problem with that? Businesses have to make money. 

Just live your life.

Nice job ignoring the truth. If a TV network was all white, you know exactly what would happen. Why are you supporting a double standard? You are, in effect, supporting racism.

Lolz. Thanksgiving and the 4th of July weren't official US holidays until 1870.  If they are so important why did it take almost 100 years since the founding of our great nation to turn them into federal holidays ? ?

Sucks that Xiden couldn’t have waited until Monday to sign this crap. Nobody knew if they had to be open or closed today and plummeted the markets. Took a big old kick in the dik today. Hell I work for the gubment and we were notified at 1530 yesterday to not come to work today and Monday. (We are on split shifts)

Just another idiotic move by this horrible administration that divides our nation even more. 
Scared to think about where the greatest nation in history is headed these next few years

Is she black? Did they give all employees the day off? Does this mean Starbucks is closed?

White chick.  She's an admin type working from home.  No idea if it's across the board or what.

I hear some hilarious inside scoops on their liberal policies.  They have people who's sole job is to deal with their homeless issues since they've allowed them to hang out all day in and around the shops.
