Location Details:

Now that Congress and the President have, momentarily, certified Juneteenth as a national holiday, will it become a bromide?

As a holiday, will Juneteenth serve as a reminder that critical race theory once mattered because chattel slavery WAS once institutional (and functional slavery yet abides through share-cropping-type relations to the land), or will Juneteenth be assimilated into the company of July 4 as a national day of civics illiteracy when "the right to life" means nothing more than that you dutifully paid the month's land rent/mortgage to the functional owners of the earth three days earlier?

You're invited to share your thoughts on the matter, moderated by a high school Model United Nations debate teacher.
