Observing Juneteenth

Observing Juneteenth Is Quite Nice

Yes, yesterday was actually Juneteenth, but it was a Sunday. Today, the 20th is when we’re observing it. Hence, I’m off work with pay – a rarity in my working life – and celebrating it. 😉

My First Juneteenth

My First Juneteenth As An Actual Holiday

This is not my first awareness of the Juneteenth “holiday.” Nor is it the first time I’ve raised a drink for it. With one of my wives being Black, I’ve been aware of the date and what significance it’s been held to have for well over 20 years. This is, however my first Juneteenth when it was an actually federally recognized and generally observed holiday. I’m even getting a day of with pay because of it!

Hence, I’m spreading the celebration of this day with a plethora of examples of why there was a serious and pervasive upside to the South losing their bid for independence and the Blacks being given their freedom and personhood.

My MLK Day Dream

My MLK Day Dream

It’s once again MLK Day, and I too have a dream. I dream of a day when my fellow White men go forth and orthocegenate with Black women. I dream of a day when we grow a better future without the shadows of racial barriers.

And There’s A Whole Rainbow Reasons To Enjoy This

Black women’s beauty is separate from but at least equal to White women’s beauty. Hence, there’s no insurmountable barrier before White men. The rest of us should do as I have done and help to birth a better, brighter future for our nation and People.

Our Daughters Would Not The Best Of Both Worlds
They’d Be The New World

Yes, I dream of a world where our daughters are judged by the color of their skin and judged favorably for it as the scions of peace, unity, and greater prosperity. And too, I dream of a world where they are judged by the content of their character, which has been nurtured as part of the American Community instead of steeped in bitterness and exilic doctrine.
