Juneteenth!

Dear (Your Personal Identifier Here) People,

I’m a black dude. Not sure if you knew that, but if not…SURPRISE!

Today is June 19th! In case you didn’t know, back in 1863 a little thing called the Emancipation Proclamation was passed in an attempt to weaken the southern military forces by declaring all of the slaves free. However, it wasn’t until June 19th, 1865 (2 Years Later) that the last remaining slaves were informed of their freedom in the great state of Filthy Ol Texas.

What does that day mean to me? It actually means a lot. I’ve never been the type to be bombastic with my afrocentricity, but people should know it exists. I’m 100% proud to be black. I don’t celebrate the 4th of July. Don’t get me wrong…I’ll slide through a cookout for a burger or two, but that’s about the gist of it. I’m not against the fourth in anyway. In realize the importance of the day to many of Americans. I just realize that when the US got that wonderful independence, my kind of people had to wait about 89 more years to hear about the concept of freedom. And then it took another 100+ years to actually start tasting it.

But I’m not here to bait anybody. I’m just here to say HAPPY JUNETEENTH to everyone that visits the site. I’m hoping that everybody enjoys their day and doesn’t do anything racist. I love you guys. Be good.

      • I need to actually plan my blogs again. I’ve been pulling these out the deepest parts of my ass lately. And I do mean the deepest. I’m talking the area on the other side of the tracks. Nobody ever wants to travel that deep…lol.

      • I want to travel to those deeper, innermost areas of your thoughts. You never know who you can touch or change someone’s perspective on a similar situation. We are spirits living a human experience after all.

      • So you want to basically do what Jennifer Lopez did to that serial killer in, The Cell? I wonder what interesting things there are for you to see in my mind!
