The celebration is premature.

The error persists. The celebration of Juneteenth is premature.

It’s not about race, the characteristics of the victims of subjugation/oppression; it is about the objectives of the oppressors, the desire to exercise power. What was originally unique about North American slavery was that it was legal, a socially approved and protected behavior. This offense to the moral sensibilities of humans persists in the designation of humans, who are younger than 18 years, as property.

It is this designation which provides a basis for challenging the right of a women to remove a parasite that has been implanted by someone else.

The legal subjugation of women persists and the designation of children as communal property is evidence.
