Disconnected lip service, IMO. Americans have been pushing to have Election Day declared a Federal Holiday for DECADES, to no avail. Now, in the Cancel The Kitchen Scraps For Lepers And Orphans No More Shirt of voter suppression laws and ever increasing work hours and measures to complicate the process at the polls for MINORITIES especially, the current administration decides that Juneteenth, which SHOULD be a Federal Holiday (albeit maybe not before Election Day), is the priority. It’s literal bandaid on a bullet wound behavior that further displays that our government has NO CLUE what needs to be done to support it’s citizens and move forward. Also, If our government REALLY wants to support it’s black citizens all it needs to do is LISTEN to the messages of last year’s protests: LESS POLICE. MORE COMMUNITY FUNDING. Yes, this is a BIG step in the direction of recognizing that Black Lives Matter, but without taking the actual efforts and measures that need to be taken to ACTUALLY improve black lives, this is a publicity stunt, at best.
