Green Thoughts on Juneteenth

Here are two pieces published today on an important topic.  Juneteenth.  Juneteenth and Reparations.  Today, the U. S. House of Representatives began hearing House Resolution 40, a bill that proposes the formation of a committee to study reparations.  It is a symbolic date.  People held in slavery in Texas remained captive for an additional two years and nearly six months after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued because nobody bothered to tell them they were out of bondage earlier.  The statements at the links below are from candidates seeking the 2020 Green Party nomination for President.  The Green Party steps up to address injustice; it doesn´t step away.
