"MAGA, let's go back before Juneteenth." These Confederate right wing crazies really do want that. I've often asked what date MAGA refers to, I think I just figured it out. Does anyone think Trump celebrates Juneteenth?

Every single day of the week is a "This Day in History" - www.history.com

Do you celebrate, Danni? Did you bake a cake? Did you put out your Juneteenth decorations?

What historic event will you bake a cake for tomorrow? Will you demand Trump shoot fireworks?

Why should he? Were his ancestors slaves?

I'd say you have it a little backwards Boaz, when a person identifies as a White Nationalist or brings a self[-identified White Nationalist into their Presidential administration they have brought race into the conversation not those of us who notice what they did.

No, it's you liberals doing that.

And as far as I'm concerned, a white nationalist is no different than a Black lives matter idiot. One is just for the white race and the other is for the black race.

And they both equally harm the nation.

So the end of slavery is only important for descendants of slaves? That speaks VOLUMES about who people that share this point of view are.

The rest of us should lament the time the government took America's property without compensation.
It was a massive Federal overreach.

Well, if you racists wouldn't openly be so racist on a public forum, we wouldn't need to call you out on your racism. It's as simple as that you lily white redneck.

White Nationalists believe America should be a nation dominated by the white race while a member of Black Lives Matter really just stands up against police violence against black people which no one, in the country, can pretend doesn't happen nearly every day in this country. The first group I detest, the second not so much. Quite honestly, someone needs to stand up for black people being shot or tormented by the police, it takes much more courage for them to do what they are going than it does to march around with a torch changing "Jews will not replace us."

You're promoting a birther-conspiracy manufactured from whole cloth, and accusing Boaz of being a, "racist [...] lily white redneck". Do you have any evidence to present that Boaz is anyone other than he claims to be?

If not, you're engaging in racism. The racist is you.

He's stated many times that he's black. Why is that such a problem for you, and why do you deny it?

So that you can continue to accuse him of racism guilt-free? Aren't you denying his race for the sole purpose of carrying out your race-baiting style of attack?

Danni,

Please dont pretend to know anything about the black race except what you have read. If you have spent anytime around blacks, you would understand how racist they truly are.

I am a black American. No I'm not african. No I'm not African American. I'm a black American. Not white, not Indian and not Asian.

I just choose to think for myself. I choose to hold the black community accountable for it's actions. And I do call out how the Democrat/Liberal racists are only using blacks for their votes and what benefits the white liberal establishment can get out of blacks.

So we could pass the ACA and expand Medicaid, raise taxes on rich people, regulate industries, strengthen the EPA, create the Consumer Protection Bureau, enact reasonable gun control bills, insure the safety of drugs (80% of which are manufactured in China), and I could go on and on. All those things are to help AMERICANS, black people are AMERICANS just like I am, we don't just use them for their votes. We use them to help us do good things for all the people. As opposed to Republicans who pander to groups like anti[-abortion crazies, gun nuts, etc. and then use their power to pass huge tax cuts for the 1%. That's really all they care about.

White nationalist = white person interested in maintaining the "superiority" of the white race (i.e., racist).

Black lives matter = people from all races interested in stamping out institutional racism (i.e., not racist).

Just because a group of people are pointing out the inherent racism that acts as a foundation for our criminal justice system does not make themselves also racist.

I dont know where you got that from, but blacks are truly pushing the "superiority" of the black race. Why do you think it's being pushed that "everything" came from blacks or came from africa?

1. No black person alive today was a slave, nor their grandparents or their parents.
2. Blacks sold blacks into slavery; there were no roving bands of white slave owners roaming the African country side kidnapping slaves.
3. There's no reason for today's blacks to hate today's whites.
4. The only reason there's racism today, is the race pimps of today wont let racism die because it keeps them relevant and keeps them votes.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.

I would have thought February 2nd 1865 would have been more important, that is the date the 13th amendment passed with 2/3s vote in the house. Slavery was still legal technically until January the next year when 2/3s of the states had ratified the amendment.
