Can't we just CELEBRATE instead of using every single opportunity to blame and place guilt and berate people? Those who continue to do this will soon have the shoe on the other foot. I won't be going to this because I am tired of being blamed for things that may or not have been done centuries ago by who knows what color of humans. Have fun feeling sorry for yourselves.

prejudice is a hypocritical way of thinking you can hate them for their point of view and become just as prejudice. Prejudice thinking [to pre-judge without facts ] violates the constitutional right to free speech. Other rights will become vulnerable when even one right is violated. Each right is a connection [created equally] Freedom of the press does not mean uncensored"" it's a manipulation of the freedom of information act which would include promoting a prejudice act The freedom of information act includes the peoples right to know- not the right to know harmful information. The hypocritical belief is getting back at the people who hate for no reason other than to draw attention to themselves a group effort- N.A.A.C.P. Juneteenth and even religious groups that do not include everyone who will insist on their o thinking and nothing else. It can be ridiculed as a joke it isn't funny it's wrong
