PVCC Prepares for Juneteenth Celebration

Here we go again with this nonsense. Hasn't the pendulum swung far enough in the other direction? In fact, the pendulum has broken away and is now, literally, off course. I never had any slaves.

The real fact is that they only represent 10% of the total population.(Maybe 13% if you include the Hemings family and their relatives). Enough, please.

Hint: It's not about you and your personal thoughts on slavery.
