"all this Juneteenth stuff got me anxious...."


  

          

not even just the whole commercialization...that's a whole issue in and of itself....
but...the sheer volume of "events" and "Things" being promoted, happening, going on, etc...

Maybe it's FOMO?
I don't know...

it's a lot though.

Also some stuff at Ross.

It's really REALLY a lot more commercialized this year than anytime I noticed.

That's where I'm at with it. We really needed those voting bills and the police reform to be enacted to get more substantive gains on top of a holiday.

That may eventually happen, but it ain't that kind of party. I don't want Desantis sitting eating some collard greens w/ ham hocks talking about he celebrating Juneteenth on Twitter.

like Cinco De Mayo and St. Patricks Day if some solemnity isn't injected into the holiday.

Both are huge commercial days.

Even memorial day, which is supposed to be a day of rememberence of the day, is just a big cookout weekend.

Not sure what folks had in mind when they got a federal holiday in the middle of the summer.

commemorative/educational. however, that's not how the US celebrates, especially in the summer.

I find it weird too because many pre-fed holiday celebrations include vendors selling their goodies. so this had to be expected on some level.

This country is always going to try to make money off a holiday

but WE should definitely party and make the most of it.

I remember a Juneteenth celebration in Philly and one in VA.. and maybe one in NYC but I can’t front, had no idea why it was a thing. Just thought it was another reason for a block party or a street festival.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

My people are turning it into a reunion for our town. We used to have it in August and it fell off once the elders started to pass on.

Realized it made sense to come home for Juneteenth and support our local community center.

I’m excited.

even then I just thought it was some cool DC shit because they'd have a parade or something downtown and I would always happen to be around at work that day...
