  1. * Holidays are an opportunity for focused & intense training, education and experience

    I don’t agree with this asterix statement, at least not as an axiom. Holiday for White people is very different than the same for Black people. Holiday for a post-slavery, though pre-restituted Black mind means a time away from labor. To Black people, “Labor” has the connotation of being harsh and stressful, and/or being inlieu of a preferably enjoyous period of time. So “Holiday” is a time taken to be away from this laborious period. Another way to view it is as a period of coping.

    Learning is best received through observation and self-indulgence. However, in our learning curriculm for our youth, we often “force-feed” them what they need, rather than using exploratory and less-adversive methods to provide them the same necessary knowledge. So our youth seek the opportunity to lament in “Holiday” time as a means of coping with or escaping from the laborious time of learning.

    If intending and attempting to redefine the contextual meaning of “Holiday” than I can co-sign the majority of what was shared in this post.

Marcus Garvey Aug 17, parade the flag used against the Klan movie “Birth Of A Nation”con federate flag and instilled the Red, Black and Green flag to live is to love and own land and businesses. Labor Day weekend sat in brooklyn is the childrens carnival toddlers on up. Sunday night Jovert’ and the Father Of Labor Day a Black Male lawyer from Ohio started to end the twelve and sixteen hour shifts for Africans, Asians or Spanish speakers. *December 12, July Madiba=Nelson Mandela Day.
