I know there's a lot of discussion on Juneteenth becoming a federal holiday ( ex: it's performative and doesn't do shit to advance Black Americans) and while I do understand what folks are saying, I also think it's important to read the story of 95 yr old Opal Lee who spent decades fighting to get it recognized nationally.
Personally, I'm happy it's a federal holiday but also understand it's gonna be weaponized, mistold, and commercialized. I also understand that it doesn't equal the voting rights bill, police reform, reparations, etc.
I do think it's important to have a day that allows Black Americans to celebrate our culture, history, and ancestors; even tho for others, it will, unfortunately, just be seen as another day off.
Multiple truths can exist.

Simone is one of, if not THE greatest Olympian in history already. She has absolutely nothing to prove. Despite all the expectations and responsibilities her country put on her, she stood sturdy everytime. Now it's time to make sure she is well and safe.
She always deserves nothing but pure respect, praise, and support.

African Americans everywhere we have found a secret language our ancestors from slavery developed to keep between us so we can have dialects between each other . Would bring a sense of community .
A lot of us have been learning it fast in just a few days of knowing about it . It somewhat comes natural . We also have our own heritage flag . We create group chats and have a vetting process to make sure the people are African Americans only so we can learn between us
If you are African American and want to learn tutnese (our hidden language here in American ) hit me up and I’ll send you the chart so you can start learning to write out words . And once you learn that I’ll add you to the groups that help pronunciation .

Don’t let this minor success distract you from what Black people continuously go through in this country.
Derek Chauvin isn’t the first cop to wrongfully kill an unarmed Black man and he will unfortunately not be the last.
Let this small success MOTIVATE you to continuing to fight for racial equality in this country!!!
The fight is not over yet.
