Re: No Juneteenth Merchandise

Some people prefer to stick their head in the sand, the danger in that is of people repeating past transgressions.  Celebrating freedom from slavery  should never be thought of just another holiday.

@Love to Run I've only heard of the holiday a few years ago.  What sort of merchandise is offered for Juneteenth?  Is there any special colors associated with the holiday?


 

 

@haddon9 Yes! Red, black, and green are traditional and they represent, the people, the land, and the blood shed in the struggle for freedom.


@Love to Run Thanks!

I don't think it has a thing in the world to do with anyone sticking their head in the sand. It's simply evolving. To this point, this has not been a well known or recognized holiday for most people. One might also suspect that repeating of past transgressions seems unlikely. As for the value placed on holidays, it could be that in a free nation, individuals, groups and families decide for themselves their hierarchy.

I am not Black, but I have known about Juneteenth for as long as I can remember, and that's a long time because I am old.  I am surprised and saddened that there are so many people that did not know the meaning and importance of this day.  How can one be alive and live in the USA and yet not be aware?

Re: No Juneteenth Merchandise

If there is money to be made, trust me, merchandise will be offered!!!  @Love to Run , maybe you could design and market something that would be appropriate and welcomed by the masses.

@Suzeecat despite what's been stated in some of the comments, there's plenty of Juneteenth merchandise available with major retailers everywhere. 

I was lamenting the lack of merchandise at QVC because I would have enjoyed seeing items demonstrated and styled either live or on video prior to purchase. QVC also carries unique items not found on Amazon. Thankfully, I was able to find some really special things on Etsy. This is our first Juneteenth in our new home and we absolutely love our neighborhood and want to share the celebration with our wonderful neighbors.

@Mz iMac   I do now...but why would I have known that?  It really wasn't on my radar and I don't see it mentioned anywhere.

@tends2dogs   You've go to be kidding me!!!!  These swimsuits really exist???Smiley Surprised


Yes, @SamBrown , Google it.  


TARGET is taking a LOT of heat over their offerings.
