The Senate passed a bill making Juneteenth, celebrating the end of slavery, a national holiday.

They passed it by 'unanimous consent'--no one objecting.

At least the Senate, though they won't pass the voting rights bill presented  by Biden, to overturn all the bills in state legislatures to limit the right to vote--primarily by black and brown people.

At least the Senate had the sense not to block the June-teenth bill.

So, next year, June 19th will be a national holiday.


But much more is needed.

Much more.

Racial equality is one of the most pressing issues in our nation.

Our history is sorrowful and deplorable regarding slavery, discrimination, segregation and racial inequality.

Much more is needed.

Much more.

All people are created equal.

We must make what was created the truth.
