Today is "Juneteenth" which was always -- [B]always[/B] -- a minor event in world affairs. Specifically it's the day that a Texas army officer made a decree that didn't make any legal or practical changes to the status of slaves in Texas and was completely irrelevant everywhere else on the planet.
Naturally, since #NiggerLivesMoreImportantThanSocietyMotherFucker is the hip thing this year, uppity blacks across America want to treat this on par with Independence Day.
For a point of comparison, yesterday marks The Battle of Waterloo where the Hundred Days War (and therefore the Napoleonic Wars) ended. That's right, just yesterday was the anniversary of a historic event that made a massive impact on world affairs. Slavery in America, despite its big media push as of late, was neither unique nor particularly interesting. The Napoleonic Wars were a major worldwide event that included the Hundred Days War, the War of 1812, and the Barbary Wars.
Also the Battle of Waterloo was a decisive final victory. Without "Juneteenth" the slaves in Texas would still have been free by December 1st when the Thirteenth Amendment was ratified. Slavery in Texas was legal on June 18th and equally legal on June 20th. In other words, this event is a nonstarter, which is why the #NiggerLivesMoreImportantThanSocietyMotherFucker types are insisting now it be a national U.S. holiday. Waterloo Day isn't a holiday in England or Canada. Until it is, tell them to shut up, stop rioting, and go to work.
"Racist myth": blacks aren't very good at math.
"Woke take:" we can't possibly put a number in the name of a single-day holiday.
