Earlier: For Fourth Year In A Row, Mass Black On Black Shooting At A Juneteenth Event (Two Dead, 16 Shot): This Time In Texas At Round Rock

It’s June 19th tomorrow, and that means it’s only about two weeks until the Fourth of July, which John Adams said should be ”solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations.”

That’s not good enough for America’s black population, though.

They tend to consider the Fourth of July to be “White People’s Independence Day.”

Blacks have their own Black Independence Day—“Juneteenth,” today as prominent a national holiday as Martin Luther King’s Birthday is and as George Washington’s Birthday… isn’t. (We’re supposed to call it “Presidents Day.”)

The Washington Post has an article titled What to know about Juneteenth and its historical significance by Indian immigrant reporter Niha Masih.

Whenever I see the words ”What to know” in a headline, I get the feeling that the reporter has some things we’re supposed to know, that she’ll tell us, and there are other things not to know, which she’s keeping from us for our own good.

Here’s one cheering note—well, I find it cheerful—while 30 states and the District of Columbia recognize Juneteenth as a holiday, Alabama has proposed the following enlightened policy:

In Alabama, a new bill, H.B. 4, would make Juneteenth a state holiday, although state employees would be able to choose between recognizing Juneteenth or the birthday of the president of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis, on June 3. 

Here’s something to know about Juneteenth: It’s dangerous.

A while back, I asked “What, To The Historic American Nation, Is Your Juneteenth?,” based on a similar question asked by black Abolitionist Frederick Douglass before the Civil War.

I concluded that it wasn’t very important historically and is basically an anti-white hate fest.

What Juneteenth means in practice, however, even before it was an official Federal holiday, is a huge summer street party in black neighborhoods. And what that means, this year as much as last year, is rioting and gunfire. Badly aimed gunfire, true, but frequently lethal.

So what is Juneteenth to you and me? A day to stay inside, or if not, at least to avoid large crowds of blacks, obeying Derbyshire Rules (10a) through (10e) from John Derbyshire’s 2012 The Talk: Nonblack Version:

10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally. (10b) Stay out of heavily black neighborhoods. (10c) If planning a trip to a beach or amusement park at some date, find out whether it is likely to be swamped with blacks on that date (neglect of that one got me the closest I have ever gotten to death by gunshot). (10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks. (10e) If you are at some public event at which the number of blacks suddenly swells, leave as quickly as possible.

And remember, only fifteen days to the Fourth of July, which I called in 2020 Juneteenth For The Historic American Nation.
