LOS ANGELES - June 6, 2023 - PRLog -- 1. GOP Senators and House representatives enthusiastically applauded the Juneteenth Federal Holiday

2. All the states adhere to Juneteenth as a designated federal holiday

3.Most businesses observe the holiday by allowing their employees time off or some time for observance

4.It is viewed as mostly a "Black Holiday"

5. It is another part of the hidden agenda to push critical race theory

6. It is a costly, unnecessary holiday given the considerable number of federal holidays

In the Juneteenth Drama, political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson presents a brief, but concise, assessment of these issues. He contends that the battle for Juneteenth national recognition was a movement that was driven in part by compassion, in part by guilt, and in part by a need to confront painful racial issues. It also was an easy, and cost-free political concession to African Americans. Still, it was the right one for Congress and the country to make. The Juneteenth Drama tells that story.
