On the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER) website, Thomas Krannawitter has an interesting perspective on Juneteenth:
Many Republicans ignore Juneteenth. This is a mistake.
Juneteenth is a uniquely American day of remembrance. It should be celebrated by all Americans, of all colors, ages, and walks of life, who love freedom and hate slavery.
Republicans, in particular, should embrace and promote Juneteenth, which memorializes a great Republican victory. Without the Republican Party, after all, there would be no Juneteenth.

Juneteenth is your day to shine, Republicans. Don’t ignore it. Wrap yourselves in it. It’s your story to tell, and it is a beautiful story.
