Default The problem with 4th of July....

So this 4th of July I was thinking about how not everyone was free. I did some research and found that the slaves were freed (received the Emancipation Proclamation) years later on June 19th. Should June 19th be a holiday, too? Why or why not?

It's a good idea, but African Americans still weren't technically free. They couldn't get jobs easily, vote, or even ride in the front of the bus, even if it was empty.
We should celebrate the decade of the 60's. Civil rights.
BTW, you can't forget about Native Americans. They definantly were not free.

True... there are a lot of things we should celebrate, I guess.

Why should we celebrate My Chemical Romance? They did nothing to change the world.
Gerard Way's birthday should not be a holiday...
