were recovering from that. You know, is why do we
have to recover from It's just the barbecue and it's
just a different kind of holiday. I don't know how
to accept it, to be honest with you, It's just
just feels like boring about it. I ain't man with

a day off.

Speaker 3 (00:28):
But you know, at the same time, we're celebrating something
two years.

Speaker 2 (00:35):
Yeah, we're celebrating something late, you know what I mean?

Speaker 1 (00:39):
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's an unusual holiday, it is.

Speaker 2 (00:43):
Yeah, It's just there's other holidays we could have implement it,
but this here just I guess if y'all want to
take off, let's go ahead and do it.

Speaker 3 (00:54):
If you're not mad at it, we just kind of
like the way of the of the reason for.

Speaker 2 (01:00):
What is what was he gonna do if we march
it on? Is it a parade on this one too?
What is take that raise for years? What kind of
float is that coming down down the street? What is
that green yellow.

Speaker 1 (01:14):
Color color?

Speaker 2 (01:15):
You know our color? So it's the same float from
MLK is it the same flow. I'm just trying to
figure out is just what's different than than just let
me know.

Speaker 1 (01:27):
I'm just like you, what a nation holiday you're gonna celebrate?

Speaker 2 (01:32):
I got it, bank clothes, all that, I got it,
bank clothes, anybody where we're finish, going to get some
freedom money? I mean, what is we finish? What I'm
just asking, what does it do? Is what I'm asking?

Speaker 3 (01:44):
Well, if you celebrate the fourth Okay, did West celebrate?

Speaker 1 (01:49):
Yes, that's right, that's right, all right.

Speaker 2 (01:52):
Before find out they found out on the fourth though,
didn't they You're not gonna do another there wasn't no
two years later. Can we get the real freedom date
and celebrate that? Well, the math, that's the thing. Now,
we got put math on it.

Speaker 1 (02:11):

Speaker 2 (02:11):
We got to do all this.

Speaker 1 (02:12):
All this work on a holiday.

Speaker 3 (02:15):
Okay, all right, what you're saying we're kind of torn about. Yeah, yesterday,
yesterday holiday, Yeah, yesterday. And eventually I think we'll get
used to it. We have to teach our kids and
all of that. Eventually, hopefully we'll get you.

Speaker 2 (02:30):
They're gonna teach them in the school because you know
they don't want to do that.

Speaker 1 (02:34):
It's true.

Speaker 2 (02:35):
Oh no, Oh no, they're not true. You're gonna talk
about freedom, but we ain't gonna talk about the slavery before.
The freedom is what we're doing.

Speaker 1 (02:41):
Hello, you better make people uncomfortable, Tommy, make certain people.

Speaker 2 (02:46):
I'm uncomfortable talking about this two years later. But that's.

Speaker 3 (02:51):
I think one of the issues that they have is
talking about history. Black history is American history, American history.
Talk about it just the other day. Yeah again, right,
So talking about it and educating kids about what happened.
You know they're saying. The other side is saying, we
don't want children to feel bad. It's not about them

feeling bad. It's about educating them and to do better.
Let's move forward and do better and how we treat
each other in racism and all that.

Speaker 2 (03:22):
Educate people on what's going on.

Speaker 3 (03:24):
You can't rewrite history, and you can't not talk about
it because it didn't happen.

Speaker 1 (03:27):
It did happen, or because you're uncomfortable with it. When
we do talk about it, you get uncomfortable. That's no
reason for you not to talk about it. We have
back about these things. We need to know this and
what our country really is and what we are.

Speaker 2 (03:41):
And what reason for you to try to omit it
from the books, trying to put it all the way
out right.

Speaker 1 (03:46):
It makes no sense. It makes no sense. But any
got to keep educating. Yeah, absolutely, every day, not in
June teenth, all the time.

Speaker 3 (03:55):
We have to educate.

Speaker 1 (03:57):
And if they're not teaching you in school, do your
own research. Do your own research. You know, you can google,
you can do all that, talk to people, all of that,
you can do it.

Speaker 3 (04:08):
I think for Tommy and Junior on this and myself, well,
when we grew up in Texas, I was born Chicago,
but I was raised in Houston, So growing up, Juneteenth
was a big part of our childhood holiday, right, so
for us, we always celebrated. You always talked about it
and still was had issues then. But it's a federal

holiday now, so I think, you know, we just got
to do better with educating our kids and letting you
go in.

Speaker 1 (04:36):
But that's progress, though, you know, that's progress. That's that's
real progress that you know you guys celebrated it on
your own. Now it's a national holiday. I grew up,
of course, born and raised in Chicago. When I visited
or I lived in Dallas for a while, and I
had no idea what Juneteenth was. I had never heard
of it, ever heard of it. So yeah, you know,

you got to educate yourself. Then you ask around, you
ducate yourself, and you see what it is. You know,
And Tommy, you say, you're still uncomfortable with it somewhat,
But I mean, it is what it is, you know.
I think we will become more comfortable as we learn
more and as we live more.

Speaker 2 (05:12):
My daddy, y'all, my daddy had me dying laughing when
he was here. He said, you know, when I was
a kid, it was Juneteenth. I was trying to get
to you know, get an understanding, and my daddy said,
you know, they was free in Galveston before they was
free in Houston. I said, okay. He said, but it
don't make sense because you got to go through Houston.

Speaker 1 (05:31):
To get to Galvis to get.

Speaker 2 (05:34):
You do. I say, well, what happened, daddy? He said
it was a brother on a horse came through Houston,
said I got good news, I'll be back in a minute,
and went to Galveston and kicked it for two years
before we caught it.

Speaker 3 (05:45):
Sarah boy, my daddy, that's funny.

Speaker 2 (05:52):
I got good news. I'll be back in a minute.

Speaker 3 (05:56):
Wow. Oh yeah, Well, here we are the state of
the country, and why don't we use this time reflection
and talking about our lists y'all, make sure y'all registered
to vote, yeah, y'all, and some kind of service and
to help move this country forward.

Speaker 1 (06:15):
And it was President Biden who made Juneteenth the holiday,
who declared it the holiday. So there's that, you know. Yep,
I've been thinking about voting this November. All right, Tommy
take us in all.

Speaker 2 (06:27):
Right, in the words of my uncle, talk to God.
He would love to hear from you. Until tomorrow, y'all
be in peace. We'll see you then.

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
