Thread: Juneteenth

  1. #1

    Juneteenth

    When did Juneteenth become a big nationwide deal?

    In Texas it has been a big deal for a long time, then I saw the Juneteenth episode of Atlanta a couple years ago and thought...this is starting to spread....now itís a federal holiday.

    Kinda cool.

    We need a holiday in August. 8-8 for the Chinese that built the railroads. Or Hot Girl Summer day. Something.

    Trump never having heard of it made Juneteenth famous.

    Legit question

    I got a corporate wide email from my CEO saying ďHappy JuneteenthĒ. Is that what we are going for here with this? Isnít this like a solemn Holliday for reflection or some shit.

    I have to head for a graduation in Columbus in the whitest suburb imaginable. Iím going to pick up a few cases of Colt 45 and Old English 800 if they still make it and insist they swap out the White Claw for an appropriate Juneteenth drink. Some of you less woke folks wonít do your part and thatís why we are all screwed.

    It’s like an Independence Day for former slaves and their descendants. Should non-Black descendents of colonial Americans treat Independence Day as a solemn occasion given that it marks the ending of taxation-without-repreentation slavery by the British?

    Next year Juneteef falls on Fatherís Day. Naturally not a conflict of interest for those who celebrate each.

    I didn't think much about it before and I don't think much about it now. But if it's an opportunity for people to learn something, great.

    TEENTH is an abbreviation of one-sixteenth of an ounce (1.75 grams). It is typically used to refer to a measure of cocaine, but can be used to refer to other drugs. A TEENTH is also known as a Teener or half an 8-Ball.
    So they were on drugs when they thought of it.

    Iíve always felt the Juneteenth push was misaligned. Is a holiday appropriate for something regarding freeing the slaves but it seems theyíve pushed for referring to it as Black Independance Day as if they are trying to deflect from those racists founding fathers who declared our Independance from the UK. Iíve always felt the appropriate holiday would be in September when Lincoln actually issued EO 1862-90 aka the Emancipation Proclamation. But thatís just my opinion. Our Independance was declared but wasnít affirmed until we won against the Brits in 1781 thus why the same logic seems appropriate for the same regarding a freeing of the slaves holiday n
