It was nice to see the team on tv this morning.  There was a separate interview with Greg and Oso.

Wow, that Demitrius dude is quite the douche. His tweets make ETR look reasonable about #mubb.

I worked some campaign events at a Juneteenth event in the 90’s in Milwaukee. Next year there will be big sales at Macy’ snd Target for it.

It has been celebrated by Americans for decades. 

The only "suddenly" aspect is it is now officially a Federal observance.

I was ignorant to Juneteenth until a few years ago as well.  I guess I don't understand your question.  When I learned what it was about I certainly understood why it was important to recognize.  I live in a town of about 50k people...just got back from our Juneteenth celebration...our community is about 10% black...thousands turned out throughout the day...very cool event...even the local police were a part.  It was anything but silly.

It's always been massive in the Black community. It's just finally getting recognition from White America

The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I’m sure you’re right but in the picture posted by MUBB it looks like almost nobody was there.

That is because they're focusing on the MU players. And it is not a picture it is a video.

As long as MU players weren’t actively supporting Marxism, it’s all good.

Milwaukee's Juneteenth parade has been going for 50 years. Juneteenth has been big in Milwaukee for a long, long time.

I honestly had no idea what it was until last year. I’m glad I know what it is now.

I saw another picture that looked really crowded.

Same.  It was not something I even thought about.  It is absolutely something that should be celebrated.  I am glad it is a National holiday.  Can’t believe it did not get the recognition in my community/upbringing that it deserved (national holiday status) prior to this.   It’s really kind of embarrassing.
