Politically Incorrect Random Thought

Today is Juneteenth.

You know, I always impulsively cringe when I hear this "holiday" has arrived because I can't tell the number of times I have heard (and tried to avoid) the following uncomfortable conversation:

Random Person #1: "Hey, it's Juneteenth today."
Random Person #2: "Yep it's [deleted] Day."

I suspect that most Wise Countians know exactly what I'm talking about. Honestly, I haven't heard it quite as much over the last few years (probably because I hang out with less and less people), but I bet it was said all over county/state today.

We've got a long way to go. And I'm not sure we're walking very fast to get there.
