Poll: JUNETEENTH
How many people knew about this holiday before this year ? Now they want to make it a National Holiday. Is it the new Kwanzaa ?

100% knew about it for as long as I can remember.

I however thought it was a state holiday, not a national one. It’s to celebrate when slaves in Texas learned of their freedom.

You shouldn’t have known.
It’s a Texas holiday.
We grow up with it (it’s taught in elementary school).
Don’t beat yourself up.

It is a Texas holiday that been around a long time. I think it was officially recognized in 1980.

The media learned about it in the last couple weeks and has decided to push to make it a national holiday.

I'd never heard of it until I started working in Texas regularly. Early 2000's or so. I came back to Birmingham and asked some of my black coworkers if they knew about the black holiday where everyone drank red soda.

They told me I was full of shite.

Where I'm from, it was Ada May day. Folks learned about emancipation on the May 8th.

I like the sound of Ada May better. Would be great to have two days in the first ten days of May that I could attempt to justify getting knuckle-dragging drunk.

There is an annual Juneteenth thread on the OT board where mostly the same people claim to have never heard of it every year.
