Some History of Juneteenth
The holiday is sometimes called Black Independence Day, Freedom Day or Emancipation Day.

It derives from events that took place in Texas on or about June 19, 1865. On or about that day, over 2 years after President Abraham Lincoln’s (Republican) Emancipation Proclamation and approximately 2 months after CSA surrender. When a Union Gen. Gordon Granger (Republican), commander of the District of Texas, issued General Order No. 3, announcing that more than 250,000 enslaved Black people in Texas had been freed. Formerly enslaved people in Galveston TX celebrated the announcement. On June 19, 1866, one year after the announcement, freedmen in Texas organized the first of what became the annual celebration of "Jubilee Day".

Early celebrations were used as political rallies to give voting instructions to newly freed African Americans.

Early Black Independence celebrations often occurred on January 1 or 4.

In 1980, with the Texas Democrat Party losing increasing political control of the state. Decided to play the Race Card and became the first U.S. state to make Juneteenth a holiday for that years elections.

In short
1. The Civil Rights Act signed July 2, 1964, preceded it by 16 years.
Civil War by over 110+ years and other events were are historically meaningful to Black and White True equality.

2. It is the equivalent of a holiday passed due to Racial Political Blackmail being imposed by BLOM Radicals.

3. Another Federal/State Holiday will cost about $23.3+/- Billion to US, State and business operational budgets in lost productivity and overtime pay.

4. It is Race Based Holiday therefore Racist.

#4 All to easy to predict. Next up: Now that the Left has established it's supreme national holiday in Juneteenth. It will move to discredit and dismantle observance of July 4 as Independence Day. And as always, the Left will employ violence. I fully expect to see BLM/Antifa attacking random July 4 events by next year.

#6 ... attacking random July 4 events by next year

Per DoJ, that would be the anti-government terrorists celebrations.

So, every weekend in Chicago is Juneteenth? Asking for a friend.

#7 It would take a bit of data wrangling, but it would be interesting to calculate the excess deaths from Juneteenth celebrations compared to a normal 19-June.

#10 Precursor? Antifa attacks a patriot flag wave in Clackamas OR on Juneteenth. I guess the thought of Ol' Glory deployed on Juneteenth was too much. Antifa shows up with about 100 punks and got thumped by patriots n Proud Boys who were more than prepared. Antifa got routed, all under the watchful eye of local LE. Clackamas is 13 miles out from the main Antifa hive in Portland. Still going through video. Looks like PBs may have used a drone to track Antifa movement.

#11 Correction - report of Clackamas festivities filed on 6/19.. clash was day prior on Friday. Looks like this was a regular event that had been targeted by Antifa for some time.
