So what have you got planned for this special day that has nothing to do with you ?  

Since i'm a Fed contractor my boss says if you can't work because the customer is off today then you need to take a floating or personal day. Eff that.

460 wow :sarc: 

Trump owns more companies than that. 460 does not even register as a fraction.... 

 

Something to think about: There are 32.5 million businesses in the US... 

 

460 ÷ 32,500,000= 0.00001415384

It's rather odd.

Why not make emancipation day?

Yes it’s odd but the message is beyond the fairness of sacrifices.

And the country fought a very costly, very bloody war to make it happen.

This is a targeted Holiday for blacks. One group is looking to gain back black votes via this pandering. 

If we are going to celebrate the civil rights for all concept, any Holiday created should be one done that includes all Americans being treated equally.

Celebrate the Civil Rights Act.

When will we recognize the freedom of the Chinese and Irish who were also enslaved? Show that we believe "ALL men are created equal and such" rather than pander to one minority group. 

 

That’s pretty much it. It marginalizes groups.

I got no issue  with a federal holiday that celebrates the end of slavery. 
 

although it probably should have just replaced Columbus Day as same same and all.

Message : It’s not about reflection or remembering not even the day off . It’s about controlling and it’s going over very well .

Good point.  The end of slavery in America should be commemorated with a holiday.  Certainly makes more sense than a holiday to celebrate the fact that Columbus discovered the Domnican Republic by accident and claimed it for Spain.
