Some prominent U.S. businesses are giving workers June 19 as a paid day off, a gesture to recognize the liberation of slaves during the Civil War. Twitter, Nike and the NFL announced this week they would observe Juneteenth – the day 155 years ago that African-Americans in Texas learned they were free from slavery. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said Tuesday that Juneteenth will be "a day for celebration, education and connection" at the company. Dorsey's other company, mobile payment provider Square, also will make Juneteenth a paid company holiday, he said. Nike CEO John Donahoe said Thursday that recognizing Juneteenth is

I would laugh my ass off if DJT proclaimed it a Federal Holiday in a couple of days. It would drive the liberals out of their mind (like most things DJT does). Could you picture the Donald proclaiming it at say the Lincoln Library in Springfield Illinois - I can dream can't I?

Back in my pre-retirement gainfully employed days I tried to take a day off for MLK day. I was told by my white boss that that one was for the black employees only. Sorry buggers wouldn't even pay me extra for coming in to work.

There are only 365 days per year. We already have too many. New Year's Day, there's no spot on the Earth's orbit that say start here. Labor Day, a totally pointless political holiday. Why not combine MLK Day, George Floyd Day, Kwanzaa, Juneteenth, Emancipation Day, etc to one day, February 30. Quid Pro Joe has stated that George Floyd is more important than MLK. Heck in South Carolina Succession Day is a holiday. Soon we will make the French look like a workaholics.

An entire month, plus MLK Day, plus Kwanzaa, and now perhaps Juneteenth. Thirty-one calendar days to reflect on the very admirable skin color one specific race, and the dubious achievement of some remote ancestors possibly having been slaves (a status shared by most peoples at some point in the past). And on the other hand, one day to recognize US veterans and one day to honor all US presidents. What's wrong with this picture?

General Motors said it will recognize Friday — the day known as "Juneteenth," which celebrates the end of slavery in the U.S. — with 8 minutes, 46 seconds of silence to support the Black community.

The videotaped incident has prompted weeks of protests against police brutality across the country and around the world.

The prospect of the first Black woman to appear on a presidential ticket looks more likely than ever before, with Joe Biden seriously considering Kamala Harris, Val Demings and Keisha Lance Bottoms to be his running mate. But there’s also a serious white contender in the mix who is showing a unique capacity to energize African Americans: Elizabeth Warren. While the continued protests sparked by the death of George Floyd have amplified the pressure on Biden to choose a Black woman as his No. 2, several Black leaders are voicing a notable degree of support for Warren, strengthening her case
