Happy Juneteenth!

There are some holidays where "happy" is not the word to use. "Happy Memorial Day" makes me want to punch someone a little. Juneteenth is one of those days where "Happy" is appropriate.

I don't care if you're not black. There are (currently) more whites enslaved in Africa than there were, total, ever in the New World, blacks enslaved. Slavery is not a racial topic, it is a human topic. If you are a human, then Juneteenth is a day for celebration, and General Granger is a name you should know.
