President Joe Biden is set to sign a bill establishing Juneteenth, the date marking the end of slavery in the United States, as a federal holiday.

Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are slated to deliver remarks in the East Room, according to the White House.

Juneteenth National Independence Day will become the 12th legal public holiday, and the first new one since Martin Luther King Jr. Day was signed into law in 1983 by then-President Ronald Reagan


President Joe Biden is set to sign on Thursday a bill establishing Juneteenth, the date marking the end of slavery in the United States, as a federal holiday.

The 3:30 p.m. ET signing event at the White House comes two days before Juneteenth itself, which falls on June 19 each year. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are scheduled to deliver remarks in the East Room, according to the White House


image Juneteenth National Independence Day will become the 12th legal public holiday and the first new one created since Martin Luther King Jr. Day was signed into law in 1983 by then-President Ronald Reagan.

Juneteenth marks the date that the last enslaved African Americans were granted their freedom. On that day in 1865, Union soldiers led by Gen. Gordon Granger arrived in the coastal city of Galveston, Texas, to deliver General Order No. 3, officially ending slavery in the state.

The final act of liberation came months after the Confederate army’s surrender ended the Civil War, and more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation


The final act of liberation came months after the Confederate army’s surrender ended the Civil War, and more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation.

Lincoln was a*sassinated on April 15, 1865, two months before his proclamation made it to Texas.

The holiday legislation passed this week with overwhelming support in both chambers of Congress. The Senate approved the bill unanimously Tuesday night, and the House passed it in a 415-14 vote. The only votes against the bill came from Republicans


image On the House floor before the vote, some GOP lawmakers complained about the name of the holiday, and others expressed concern about the cost of giving the federal workforce another day off

image Some also railed against Democrats for pushing the bill to a vote without first allowing committees to examine the legislation and offer amendments.

Still, most House Republicans, even those who objected to parts of the bill, ended up voting for it.

The Juneteenth legislation was sponsored in the Senate by Edward Markey, D-Mass. The House version, sponsored by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, was co-sponsored by 166 lawmakers

Fax.... now he needs to sign a federal bill making black people a protected class. That’s the least the government can do for the people that labored to build this country into a global super power but refused to pay us. And then deputized white people to burn down and steal all the generational wealth prior black US citizens accumulated since the emancipation proclamation from Tulsa massacre to cointel pro to crack to police brutality.... protect us now and reparations asap

They've been passing bills for months now to make sure black people never get to vote again. Taking every measure possible to make sure black votes don't matter.

But they're making Juneteenth a holiday so that makes it even, right?

correct me if I wrong but wouldn’t that be just as much pandering since they can’t do nothing outside of the federal level?

He knows that doesn’t do nothing.

First off, why would black people need a racist to approve a day to celebrate their historic freedom? Oh yeah, massa Biden must tell us when.

they absolutely can influence local police with funding



when it comes to medicare the government won't pay hospital bills unless certain criteria are met with the patients care

same can be done with police

Yeah, that fu*ker clearly showing he’s conscious of “doing something” for black people” but deliberately slip over the important sh*t.

He a grand wizard so of course he wants the race soldiers active with leeway.

that’s not gonna make the cops change what they are doing. You need something more substantial than just limiting funding

What does this part mean? Only certain people would get the day off?

I don’t want Juneteenth. I want November 4 so we can actually participate in vote, considering a lot of us will have to travel four hours and stand in four hour long lines to vote.

Question -- and legit asking for information. Making black people a protected class, that's the same thing they did for the Asian community?

And how does that work for white people? Are white people just open season? Lol.

fu*k them. Another bullsh*t thing to make black people be quiet. Anyone besides me feel that this is mad racist? Black people only want to be treated like everyone else and left alone. Why the fu*k is that so hard to do.
