Joey Demento Biden opened the Democratic Party playbook, and America celebrates another holiday built on Democrat guilt.
The declaration making Juneteenth a holiday gave black people the equivalent of beads for Manhattan; the $28 deal we cut with the Indians to buy the island.
Black History Month, MLK’s birthday and now Juneteenth. Luckily black people are the least employed ethnic group. So this holiday means we can celebrate our growing level of unemployment under Biden.
Idle hands are the Devil’s workshop. And black people didn’t disappoint.
Black Leftists took the first Juneteenth holiday to kill each other on the Federal dime. Crime funded by Joey Demento Biden at the expense of the U.S. taxpayer.
As one article put explained, the violence occurred all over the country.
Gun violence marred outdoor and indoor gatherings in cities across the U.S. this weekend after some regions emerged from a scorching heat wave.
Colorado Springs saw back-to-back shootings that injured five starting on Friday night.
And in Louisiana, six people were shot, two fatally, in the early morning hours of Saturday.
Louisiana is a big state. How much you want to bet the Louisiana shootings were in one or more of their big cities.
The article continues,
In Flint, Michigan, a woman died after she was fatally shot by police after allegedly exchanging gunfire with them near a Juneteenth parade.
The suspect, whose name was not released, died at a hospital following the shooting, and the officer was uninjured, Michigan State Police said in a statement. Police said the suspect had driven up to a “traffic point” near the parade and opened fire on an officer. WEYI reported the parade was rerouted.
Elsewhere in the Midwest, NBC Chicago reported that at least five people were killed and dozens injured in gun violence across the city so far this weekend.
And a Wichita, Kansas police officer was hospitalized in critical condition after a shooting, according to police chief Gordon Ramsay. NBC News affiliate KWCH reported the suspect in that shooting was killed after exchanging fire with police.
In Texas, two children were among the eight people were shot at a party in Old East Dallas, NBC DFW reported. Police said the shooting happened after an argument broke out at the party.
In Northern California, seven people were shot, one fatally, near Lake Merritt in the city of Oakland.
According to the Oakland Police Department, that shooting happened while thousands of people were gathered around the lake downtown, and Oakland Police were there to monitor public safety.
“Immediately after the shooting, Oakland Police Officers observed two men running from the scene with firearms. Both men have been arrested and two firearms recovered,” OPD wrote.
But by all means, making Juneteenth a federal holiday will fix everything. At least according to Biden.
Yet, the truth proves Biden is no friend to the black community.
Biden jumped on the Juneteenth bandwagon as part of the smoke and mirrors Democrats put up anytime race relations are discussed. However, Trump is the one president that actually spoke with his actions instead of his words.
As I previously wrote:
I DARE Leftists to put President Trump’s accomplishments for Blacks against that of Barack Obama or Joe Biden.
Obama’s record of achievement for Blacks should embarrass Leftists. They are just too stupid to realize it. When asked years ago what Obama had done for Blacks, Valerie Jarrett actually mentioned these three things: Obamacare, getting lighter sentencing for crack cocaine, and the growth of welfare.
With Obamacare, Jarrett saw the legislation as reparations for Blacks. The idea was that most Blacks wouldn’t need to use the insurance, but would get the roughly $3,000 stipend.
Regarding welfare, Jarrett celebrated the idea that Blacks were out of work but Obama had provided the safety net of chump change.
Finally, while crack users got harsher sentences than those caught with coke, I still find the idea of Blacks being crackheads demeaning. Most Blacks don’t use crack. So how did this impact us enough to actually brag about it as something that benefitted Blacks as a whole? To benefit Blacks as a whole requires the average Black person benefitting, not just crackheads.
And if we’ve learned anything from Hunter Biden, it’s that Blacks aren’t the only crackheads. Now let’s compare.

Who’s the real racist? I suggest it’s Biden. And he was already racist, but serving with Obama really developed his hatred of Americans. Surely, every American is realizing how much we miss Donald Trump. Because the rich, white, Republican president did more for Blacks in a week, than Obama did in 8 years. And you can bet Biden’s record will mirror his beloved leader.
