What is Juneteenth? Day marks
the end of slavery in the United States

USA Today, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 6/19/2017 4:58:22 PM

Juneteenth is observed on June 19 to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States. It is also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day. Here´s everything you need to know about Juneteenth: hat is Juneteenth? On June 19, 1865, Major Gen. Gordon Granger came to Galveston, Texas, to inform a reluctant community that President Abraham Lincoln two years earlier had freed the slaves and to press locals to comply with his directive. Why did it take so long for the news to get to Texas? There is no one reason why there was a two and a half year delay in letting Texas know about the abolition of slavery in the United States,

Obviously, the word hasn´t been passed down all these generations later as blacks continue to live on the plantations erected by their dRATS Masters´. Today, they are called "the hood," but lack of proper education, violence, family structure condemns them to stay liberal and not assimilate to the great things that can achieve in boundless America.

For the life of me, I don´t understand why the Republican party doesn´t shout this out every year. The day the Republican´s freed slaves from their democrat masters. Along with the ending of the Civil War which the democrats started to keep their slaves and a memorial day on which a democrat, John Wiles Booth murdered the first Republican President Abraham Lincoln who won the war and freed the slaves. But there is a reason they´re called the stupid party and this is one of them.

The Executive Order by Lincoln didn´t free the slaves. It took amendments tot he Constitution to do that. Slavery was constitutional and an Executive order can´t trump the constitution. All it did was direct the Union forces in occupied territories to ignore laws and ignore slavery. It was a symbol, not a reality.

Seems to me a whole lot of people work very hard every day and have a portion of their pay taken away and given to other people against the wishes of the earners. Slavery ended? I don´t think so.

This article (and Henry Louis Gates-big surprise) is incorrect. The 1863 Emancipation Proclamation "freed" slaves ONLY in states in rebellion against the United States. texas was in rebellion against the United States but the Union had not yet won control over Texas and most southern states at the time of The Proclamation. Thus NO slaves were actually freed in those states with the exception of some very small areas of them that the Union had gained control over. These days, it seems alomost anyone can teach at Harvard as long as they have the right color skin, sexual orientation or ethnic background. Is this any way to run anything? I would argue no unless you wish to be a laughing stock. I´ll leave it to fellow L Dotters to make that judgement.

So, on "Juneteenth" everyone who thinks they are a descendant of slaves should seek out the descendants of Republicans and Union soldiers and say, "Thank you". Right?

The slaves in the north remained slaves. The Emancipation Proclamation was only meant to cause unrest below the Mason-Dixon.

Nos. 1 and 5 are right. Slavery in the United States did not end until the 13th Amendment was ratified on December 6, 1865. Until then, it was still legal in Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, and Missouri. If people want to celebrate the end of slavery in this country, December 6 should be the date, not the day Galveston fell to the U.S. Army.

Juneteenth is the day I got out of the Army!

I view it this way, I was drafted and put into what is called ´slavery´, I was freed on June 19, 1970!

By the way where are my reparations?

Don’t for one minute think this past week of Charlottesville-tied mayhem has been over a statue of Robert E. Lee. It’s not. It’s about power, control and the political course our nation will take as we head into the future. Don’t see the connection? Walk with me. The clashes in Charlottesville, disgusting as they were — fatal as they proved — were quickly seized upon by a committed far-left that wants nothing more than to A) remove this president from office and B) change the constitutional nature of America’s society for one that’s ruled by whim and mob voice, rather than law and order. Charlottesville was the perfect confluence of hot

Baghdad - An Iraqi ship sank on Saturday after a collision with another vessel in Iraq´s territorial waters, killing at least four sailors, Iraqi state television reported. Diving support vessel al-Misbar had 21 sailors on board, of which 10 were rescued, the Baghdad-based channel said, citing a statement from the transportation ministry. The search for survivors was continuing in late hours of Saturday, it said, giving no details about the other ship involved in the collision, a bulk carrier registered in Saint Vincent, the Royal Arsenal. Al-Misbar is owned by the Iraq´s state-run ports authority.

President Trump thanked Steve Bannon Saturday, a day after he ousted the White House chief strategist amid internal feuding in the West Wing. “I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service,” the president tweeted. “He came to the campaign during my run against Crooked Hillary Clinton — it was great! Thanks S” Mr. Bannon returned Friday to Breitbart News, the conservative news organization that he led prior to joining the Trump campaign last year. He was pushed out by White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, who was brought on board by the president in late July to restore order to the West Wing. Mr. Bannon told the

Jason Kessler, the alt-right activist and organizer of last weekend’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, tweeted that the woman who died protesting his event “was a fat, disgusting Communist” and called her death “payback time” — then walked back the remark and blamed it on drugs and alcohol. “Heather Heyer was a fat, disgusting Communist. Communists have killed 94 million,” he tweeted Friday. “Looks like it was payback time.” The tweet included a link to a now-infamous article published on The Daily Stormer white supremacist website last weekend hours after Heyer, 33, died while protesting

(Video) - Isis has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Cambrils, Spain, in an official communique. It had already claimed the prior attack in Barcelona but put out an official statement later encompassing both atrocities, which police in Spain had been treating as linked. It came as Spanish authorities announced they believed the cell behind the twin attacks in Cambrils and La Rambla, Barcelona, had been "dismantled". Police had been investigating a cell of between eight and 12 people after a van smashed into pedestrians in the Catalan city on Thursday afternoon, killing 13 and injuring about 100.

Texas added 19,600 jobs in July, a middling number on its own, but it’s one that builds on just over a year straight of employment growth in the Lone Star State, data released Friday shows. Over the year, Texas added 293,400 jobs -- the most of any state -- followed by California, whose economy has grown by 276,400 jobs over the past year and Florida, which added 226,200. That all puts Texas’ annual employment growth at 2.4 percent. According to the Texas Workforce Commission, that’s twice the rate at this time a year ago.

Los Angeles - A Los Angeles judge on Friday rejected a request by the woman who was raped by director Roman Polanski 40 years ago to have the criminal case against him dismissed. Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon ruled that Polanski remained a fugitive from justice and that the court could not dismiss a case "merely because it would be in the victim´s best interest." The ruling follows the first appearance in June in the case by Samantha Geimer, who was 13 years old when Polanski sexually assaulted her in Los Angeles in 1977. The director, who admitted raping Geimer, spent 42 days in pre-trial custody. He then fled

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

As of Friday morning, the five flags other than the United States flag — representing Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas and the Confederacy — are being left to the history books.The park received criticism following last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Va., from TMZ, Fox News and others for flying the Confederate states flag. As a result, Six Flags Over Texas decided to take down all but the U.S. flag.

Thousands of anti-fascist protesters are marching through the streets of Boston in protest of right-wing activists hosting a ´free speech´ rally on Saturday. Only a handful of attendees could be spotted against the swarm of the estimated 15,000 counter-protesters who chanted loudly as they made their way towards Boston Common. Organizers of the rally had attempted to distance themselves from the neo-Nazis, white supremacists and others who fomented violence in Charlottesville last week. The city mayor had pleaded for counter-protesters to stay away, saying their presence would draw more attention to the far-right activists and could result in violence.
