Didn't really know what it was but I've seen it on shirts some people wear around here.  Chandler educated me on what it is supposed to stand for.  Looks like we may get to celebrate it as a federal holiday soon

It's popular here in Houston...usually results in a few murders and deaths resulting from DWI...a real celebration of family values.

I never heard of it either until the liberals started gritching about Trump scheduling his rally on the same day.  Figured they had to dig pretty deep to dredge that up.   Even then what difference did it make.

I have heard of it, but I thought it was just a celebration day for being black. So I never paid much attention to it. Still don't care.

I first heard about it about ten years ago. The celebration originated in Texas, but has pretty much spread across the South.  It recognizes the day Texas slaves finally heard about freedom -- a couple of years after the Civil War ended.  There was no FaceBook back then.... :)

This is really a Texas holiday. After the Emancipation Proclamation (Sept,1862) was issued it took awhile for the message that the slaves were free to get to South Texas. Communications weren't real good. Galveston I believe was the last to get the message on June nineteenth, 1965. Obviously there was a big celebration among the not so white people. The same group of people have celebrated it ever since. Very similar, the last battle of the Civil Was was at Palmito Ranch (near the Rio Grand) on May 13,1965 months after the South had surrendered which was April 9, 1865. It is still a long way to get to South Texas even though transportation is better. And that is your Texas history lesson for today. I might add that I grew up on a farm/ranch. My dad baled A LOT of hay and I know if we had hay down, we had to get it baked and put in the barn on the 18th because we didn't have haulers on the 19th.

I have lived in South Texas on the border all my life and never knew of this juneteeth, maybe I heard it a few times but never knew about it if I did heard anything of it. I been living in Seguin for 16 years and this is the first for me and theres a ton of land here that was granted to the slaves once they were freed. The land that we bought and live on now once belonged to a freed Slave. Its just crazy history here and love it. Alot of the people that live around me are descendants of slaves.

Being born and raised in Texas, I am surprised anyone that lived here a long time doesn't know what Juneteenth is.  There have always been parades that are covered on the news.  Most of the black people that I worked with before I retired took a sick or vacation day because they were not going to work on their Independence Day.

1865? I didn't really know about the "celebrations" but I certainly knew about the date and the freeing of the slaves in Galveston from my American History class in High School !

Well all you ignorant rascist mofos need to wake up. Institutional racism is real. Just like Covid-19.

Not in my little corner of the world. White people are the minority and we learned a long time ago how to get along. Your world sucks - it's mean and hateful with no real appreciation of true diversity. We try to treat people the way we want to be treated - all people black white brown yellow, liberal conservative, gay straight. It's no utopia, but next to your sorry world, it's much better place to live. 
You are a mean, small-minded person, k no I wonder your world sucks.

I really didn't see a racist post. People had either heard of the holiday or they hadn't. Could it be because we mentioned a black holiday or because we've used the word black?  Miserable individual!

Why?  It's not a holiday that someone in China is going to celebrate. Are they racist mofo's too. Maybe.  I also don't celebrate Hanukkah (but I did look for the right way to spell it. Is that respectful enough?). I don't celebrate Canadian Boxer day.  I don't expect anyone that's not Christian to celebrate Christmas either.  Just leave us alone to celebrate our holidays and you can celebrate what's important to you.  You have a very hateful personality. But I think you know that.
