It’s been a LOOOOOOOOONG time Hannity folks.
Remember me? I used to raise a lot of hell and anger on here back when it was Hannity Forums… To a lot of angst and outrage of many
I’m alive!! And it’s good to see a few names already that I recognize. Back in those days I was accused of being a “race baiter” and “making everything about” race… Well… I’d hope the past few weeks have shown us all that there has to be SOME level of truth to the things I was saying, but I digress:
There are very few people in this country that have a history as long as African Americans. We’ve been here far longer than a great many of you whose ancestors immigrated at some point or another. We built the country, we’ve fought in all it’s wars and conflicts, we’ve pushed to make the country stand by the ideals laid out in the Declaration of Independence. The entire landscape of this country would be vastly different if it weren’t for our contributions and sacrifices. How many Fortune 500 companies were started by immigrants? (Answer: nearly half) How many of those immigrants would even be here if it weren’t for US pushing for Civil Rights Act of `964, which paved the way for the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965??? This country owes us it’s very soul… and I’m just asking for the bare minimum. Recognize OUR day of freedom.
June 19, 1865 is the day US Army Officer Gordon Granger arrived on the shores of Galveston, TX and announced that we’re free. That day, despite all hypocrisy and ******** this country has introduced to us, set a precedent for everything America would soon be… and we deserve recognition. July 4th is not my holiday, but Juneteenth, July 19th, is… and it’s time we collectively embrace what it’s meant for us and will mean going forward. I mean, MLK received a National Holiday… one man… At what point do we recognize the roots from which he came? Discuss
