Watch and see. This is how most Juneteenth ‘celebrations’ will end up; in random violence. This will keep happening until a few cities get a clue that maybe this is not such a good day to draw attention to after all. Career racebaiters and professional victims will use this day to draw attention to ‘how agrieved’ they are. I say the whole process will take less than five years before more businesses begin to back away from this day.

Did those darned white supremacists show up and mess up the party?

Just plant some undercover cops amongst the partygoers. At one time they discharge their weapons into the air. A few female cops scream at the top of their lungs. Watch them all fly like lemmings.

I’m so old I remember when no one fought at celebrations.

"before more businesses back away from this day"

So this will not become a beer holiday like May 5th did?

Cinco (5th) de Mayo (of May).

Odd that blacks in Texas have had Juneteenth celebrations for 100 years without the chaos and mayhem.

Hopefully not in every case, but I suspect in most cases.
The wrong people will see it as a holiday for BLM/Wakanda foolishness, plain and simple.

Google had this garbage “holiday” marked on their calendar for a long time, as if they knew something well in advance.

This was at Pier Village, the water front, which attracts, well used to attract, upper middle class new yorkers
