Juneteenth: Ceremonial Emptiness

Black People did not ask for a Juneteeth holiday. We have celebrated Juneteenth since 1866 and were not, are not soliciting the imput of white people.

We want just laws already on the books to be enforced and we want to be treated 100% of the time like American citizens, 100% of the time.

We want the roots of systematic racism attached to every American tree uprooted and permanently destroyed.

We want the police to stop terrorizing our person and communities. We want the Department of Education to stop terrorizing our minds and we demand that western religion end the terrorization of our spirit.
