Version 2.029

The riots are escalating across the country, but in order to become a better country, we must give up what we are today. The basis of all creation is destruction.

I do not believe we will see a de-escalation soon and I expect we will continue this process until after the election. If Donald Trump wins, many people will be upset about it; if he loses, his supporters will be upset and Trump will spent over two months undermining the President-elect, although there is also a good chance that he will refuse to step down. And considering that he plans on holding rallies during the campaign and nobody will be wearing masks, he could also become ill before the election, which would create a new conspiracy theory and God knows what else.

Anyway, June 1 is the beginning of hurricane season and June is a special month for African-Americans. June 19, 1865 is the date in which Texas recognized the emancipation of slaves, so this date, referred to as Juneteenth, is known as Freedom Day, Black Independence Day, Jubilee Day, and Cel-Liberation Day.

In 1865, in Galveston, TX, the following announcement was read aloud:
The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor. The freedmen are advised to remain quietly at their present homes and work for wages. They are informed that they will not be allowed to collect at military posts and that they will not be supported in idleness either there or elsewhere.

So anything can happen between now and the end of this presidential term.
