“You do know why America is so rich, right? Because we built this land for free.”
– Andre (Anthony Anderson) shares the importance of Juneteenth with his coworkers. This week’s black-ish marathon on ABC featured the episode “Juneteenth” in which the Johnsons attempt to educate their friends on the importance of a day in history that not enough people know about.
One Day At A Time (Pop TV)

“On Monday, on a call with governors, Pence tried to blame the rising infection numbers on ‘an increase in testing.’ Because for Pence, the real disease is knowledge, and you can catch it through the eyes and the ears. So he’s gonna need a new mask.”
“I say ‘There are hungry children, there are hungry children, there are hungry children. There’s a war in Syria, there’s a war in Syria, there’s a war in Syria.’ Or ‘Not everyone has a smartphone, not everyone has a smartphone, not everyone has a smartphone.’ To remind myself of the bigger picture.”
