CRT pt.2 and Juneteenth

Our hosts open by picking up where they left off in the previous episode about Critical Race Theory. From there, Dave and Mickey move on to discuss the designation of Juneteenth as a federal holiday. Is it too little too late? Is it a distraction while Black Americans face rampant voter suppression? Will kids even know what Juneteenth is if teachers aren't allowed to teach hard history?
