FIST PHOTO: Billy Porter bowed down as he kissed President Joe Biden hand at White House during Juneteenth concert

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Billy Porter bowed down as he kissed President Joe Biden hand at White House during Juneteenth concert.

U.S. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris celebrated the Juneteenth holiday early on Monday with a White House concert that included singers Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle and rapper Doug E. Fresh.
Biden signed a law in 2021 that made June 19, or Juneteenth, a federal holiday. It commemorates the day in 1865 - after the Confederate states surrendered to end the Civil War - when a Union general arrived in Galveston, Texas, to inform a group of enslaved African Americans of their freedom under President Abraham Lincoln's 1863 Emancipation Proclamation.

"Black history is American history," Biden told the nearly 1,700 people in attendance. He said he would continue to fight for the rights of Black Americans even as some political leaders were working to take away their hard-won freedoms.
"The day reminds us that we have a helluva lot more work to do," said Biden. "Let's keep marching. Let's keep the faith."
