what it means to slaves

Correct me if I'm wrong, but they're all dead.

Ridiculous logic aside, Juneteenth isn't the day the slaves were freed anyway?

There are still slaves, they just dont care because theyre either in Muslim countries or in the elite's sex dungeons after being smuggled in over the southern border.

Slavery is alive and well in Africa and Asia as well. The number of slaves currently in circulation allegedly eclipses the number of slaves distributed throughout entire periods of slavery.

Acknowledging those realities would undermine both the narrative and the profitability of so many western commodities though, so they are ignored.

Juneteenth is a Black National Socialist holiday that they stole from actual slaves that marked thier actual liberation... in one town.

I'll relay the basic layout again.

After the Civil War had ended, but before the 13th Amendment was passed, a Union general who was assigned to occupy Galveston, Texas ordered that Galveston act in compliance with the Emancipation Proclamation (all rebel controlled areas were no longer allowed to own slaves)

  • The Emancipation Proclamation was the document that actually freed the slaves of Galveston, TX
  • It was announced in September of 1862 after the Battle of Antietam
  • It was enacted in January 1st, 1863
  • Slaves were still allowed in non-rebel territory so it isn't the end of slavery
  • The 13th Amendment abolished slavery in the US and was enacted on December 15th, 1865
  • The 13th Amendment had no effect on Galveston, TX
  • The Union Army had already been seizing slaves as property and "freeing" them even before the Emancipation Proclamation.
  • Some indian tribes maintained slaves after the 13th Amendment for a while since the 13th Amendment didn't apply to them as were still recognized as foreign nations.

What this means is that Juneteenth literally has nothing to do with the ending of slavery in America. The Emancipation Proclamation is what freed the slaves of Galveston specifically, and slavery was only ended in the US with the 13th Amendment which came afterwards.

Juneteenth exists like Qwanza: it is a racial holiday, exclusively for American blacks, that exists to pre-empt any celebrations of the regular holiday (July 4th vs Juneteenth / Qwanza vs Christmas). Black Racial Communists / Black National Socialists are seeking racial division whenever possible.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but they're all dead.

But they also include “their living ancestors”. Because apparently they don’t know the difference between ancestors and descendants.

Nope. It was the day a white man rode into texas and said they were.

And even then, that only signaled the last of the slaves in the old Confederate states. There were still slaves in places like Delaware until December that year, since the Emancipation Proclamation only applied to the South allowing tweener Union states to eek out a few more months.
