The company I work for is a racist bigot if they don’t give me off to celebrate white people putting an end to slavery! We did a pretty good thing my dudes! We didn’t start the fire, but we were the first ones to to put it out! Celebrate!
Looking forward to the “independence” part.
Awesome! One more paid day off.
1 more day I don’t get junk mail!
cool another national holiday I wont have off.
Sue them for their racist white power’d ways!
Good. It’s a thing worth celebrating.
Our company has a few events scheduled, speakers and the such, for this Friday and they encouraged all of us to clear our meetings and attend. Perhaps next year a day off?
How do we celebrate this holiday?
Do you drive south and talk to people about their freedom? Do you pay for the next person in line at McDonald’s on your way home from work?
I hope, I’ve been slaving away at work so long I don’t remember my last day off. A paid day off from working would be nice!
LOL. Why are Democrats celebrating the end of slavery? The Republicans/GOP pushed their shit in to stop the Democrat party’s support for slavery.
They also love it when you point out that it was White Republicans that ended slavery.
Do the Juneteenth challenge where you ask every one in your social media network to repost their 2019 juneteenth posts for $20 bucks. The results will shock you
Where can I get a juneteenth greeting card that says “You’re Welcome”
Seriously though, how do you celebrate it?
Re enactments are probably out of the question
How do we do this? Are sparklers involved?
Same as the US independence and the same as honoring soldiers who died fighting for freedom… so I assume hot dogs, and over indulging on alcohol. Duh
