No idea why these progressives have to f' around with holidays connected to and celebrated by Italian Americans. Somehow that is called progress? Columbus Day, Thanksgiving?

I have no problem creating a holiday around the emancipation of slaves. Use Juneteenth as a Memorial Day to formally acknowledge the end of institutional slavery. Using it to recognize the genocide of Native Americans is probably a good thing for America"s soul, but it also should be inclusive other ethnic groups like Chinese, Japanese, Mexicans along with other ethnic immigrants who came to the country during 19th and early 20th century. Catholic, Jewish, Mormon, Muslim and other religions should also be recognized.

The 4th of July is the annual celebration of the promise of a new and young America, taking a day to remember victims of injustice in this country is appropriate.
