Juneteenth is officially a federal holiday.— President Biden (@POTUS) June 17, 2021
It’s Juneteenth AND reparations.— Cori Bush (@CoriBush) June 17, 2021
It’s Juneteenth AND end police violence + the War on Drugs.
It’s Juneteenth AND end housing + education apartheid.
It’s Juneteenth AND teach the truth about white supremacy in our country.
Black liberation in its totality must be prioritized.
Juneteenth becoming a federal holiday is an important moment in understanding our country's history, and the horrors and lasting legacy of slavery. But real justice is when all Black Americans live free of oppression. That is not the work of a single day, but of every day.— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) June 17, 2021

In the span of three days, the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act sailed through the House and Senate and was signed into law by Joe Biden. The Republican Party put up virtually no resistance in Congress to a bill which is supported by exactly 7% of Republican voters. The same was true of the Anti-Asian Hate Crimes bill because these gutless cowards were afraid of being called racists.
Note: Last year, the Supreme Court looked into the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch saw a mandate for transgenderism.
