This is not a white persons holiday. It is for black people to commemorate their freedom from slavery. It is not the same as July 4th or any other holiday. It's not a hard concept to understand that not every holiday is for white people. You can wish black people well on Juneteenth but it isn't for you.



Then it shouldn't be a federal holiday. Anyone is able to enjoy and celebrate any holiday they wish but that doesn't mean it needs to be a federal holiday especially with your explanation that it only is intended for a minority of the population.

I've never seen white people needing another holiday.

It is abolsutley intended for minorities. I'm sorry you're so behind the times. It's a day for black people to experience their liberation from slavery and what that means to them.

Take your day off and get over yourself.



Sorry but I am not behind the times. I never said not to celebrate nor did I diminish the importance. Don't make up your own narrative to what I said.



Unfortunately, that is what many do on here, seem to interpret or take what you said out of context. I totally get what you were saying.
