My compliments on providing your email. I have a complaint about adding yet another holiday that you pay employees to stay home. I am: sick of it! SICK OF IT! You pay employees to honor the end of slavery? How about the end of many things? Next the Indian tribes will demand recognition. All countries that were conquered in history will demand recognition. You promote division. You promote racisim. I am not racist one tiny bit, but this pisses me off.
