Alveda King on Celebrating Juneteenth With the Truth

Today, for the first time, we will observe Juneteenth as a national holiday. This is a dream come true.

For more than a decade Civil Rights for the Unborn, a ministry of Priests for Life, in concert with the National Black Prolife Coalition, has been working to help make Juneteenth a national holiday.

In 2020, great progress was made when national Black leaders met and prayed with President Donald J. Trump. Juneteenth was a high priority during the discussion. Shortly afterwards President Trump expressed his support from the White House for the initiative.

I’m glad to see that our dream has finally been realized. I thank God, all elected officials=, and everyone who helped to get a bill passed and signed into law to make Juneteenth a national holiday.

June 19 marks the day in 1865 when slaves in Texas learned that slavery had ended in the U.S. when President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation was enacted on Jan. 1, 1863.

This month with Juneteenth and Father’s Day, we celebrate fatherhood, life and freedom. On Alveda King’s House and Prolife Praise, we discuss reasons to celebrate.

Also, as we celebrate, the ongoing controversies of systemic racism and the critical race theory are yet dividing and conquering our cries for unity.

Systemic racism does exist in the process of embedding a premise of racism into legal systems of a society. Systemic racism occurs within a government that uses money from people of influence who want to control human populations to elect government officials who will promote their agendas.

What is systemic racism? Here’s an example: Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, a renowned racist and eugenicist, helped to promote an agenda of genocide which included birth control to what she considered to be the less needed communities of people on the planet.

Sanger declared that colored people were like “human weeds” who needed to be exterminated. Even though she died years ago, her Planned Parenthood abortion legacy is well-funded through private donations and political strategies paying lobbyists to promote the abortion agenda legislatively.
