It’s the END of an era. As reported here yesterday, Meghan Mccain announced her departure from the venerable panel talk show ‘The View’. Whoopi Golberg and the cast of the show got emotional as McCain spoke of her time on the show.
Meghan McCain has had a STORIED 4-year run on ‘The View’. Constantly bumping heads with her co-hosts for her conservative views, and outlandish statement at times–McCain has been a HOT TOPIC in her own right for her WILD VIEWS and WILDER hairstyles at times. WORD FROM THE CURB is that she has plans to ANNOUNCE she is LEAVING the show and will make the ANNOUNCEMENT TODAY…but her co-hosts were ‘UNAWARE’ of her departure….
It’s here! Let FREEDOM RING! It is Juneteenth 2021 and we are here to celebrate & enlighten all day, all year, forever!
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863.
Originally called Decoration Day, from the early tradition of decorating graves with flowers, wreaths and flags, Memorial Day is a day for remembrance of those who have died in service to our country. It was first widely observed on May 30, 1868 to commemorate the sacrifices of Civil War soldiers, by proclamation of Gen. John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of former Union sailors and soldiers. Continue reading #TheGamutt Remembers.. Happy #MemorialDay [details]→

As we CLOSE out Black History Month 2021, we must speak on the LEGACY of RACISM in the UNITED STATES! I came across this ARTICLE that we just have to talk about because it speaks VOLUMES!!!
In 1926, Carter G Woodson started “Negro History Week” to rectify the fact that Black people “were overlooked, ignored, and even suppressed by the writers of history textbooks and the teachers who use them”.
Woodson chose the second week of February because it coincided with the birthdates of President Abraham Lincoln and the slavery abolitionist Frederick Douglass. In 1970, Black educators and students at Kent State University began using the entire month of February to celebrate and recognize Black triumphs and tribulations. US presidents started to formally designate February as Black History Month in 1976. In recent years, other countries including Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Ireland have formally recognized and celebrated the history of the African diaspora.
