Whitlock: We should scrap Juneteenth, aka George Floyd Day, for a holiday commemorating America’s 1865 rebirth - TheBlaze

I spent a lot of time this weekend contemplating “Juneteenth,” our newest federal holiday.

I first heard of it in 1985, when a college football teammate from Texas chastised a group of us for being unaware of the celebration. He explained the history of it to us. As a boy from Indiana, I understood his appreciation for Texas history but didn’t think it applied to me or my family.

I never celebrated Juneteenth. I never gave it much thought. I’ve lived in Indiana, South Carolina, Michigan, Missouri, Kansas, California, and Tennessee. No one in any of those states ever invited me to a Juneteenth party.
