    I heard the word before but I didn’t know all of that bc I’m German (we learn about American history but probably just not as intensively) , very interesting !

    Joe Biden actually lied about being arrested in South Africa fighting for Mandela. Trevor Noah brought Joe on his show and didn’t even fucking ask him about it.

    It’s almost as if Trevor Noah works for Joe’s team. Which is odd considering Joe Biden still hasn’t apologized for the 1994 Crime Bill or the mass incarceration of black people which he helped bring about.

    Come to Galveston, where Juneteenth happened! Start at Reedy Chapel and join the parade! We live our history here. Even with the virus, it’s going to be a big weekend and the beaches will be packed.

    Slavery didn’t end for the brown people in the british and the dutch colonies either. They shipped brown people against their will to work the fields. For instance: the Indians and the Javanese people were shipped to Suriname

    The fact that it isn’t a national holiday is crazy as hell

    No can choose to be born White or Black, so its absolutely stupid to hate someone for the nationality or color of their skin. People who are racist are ABSOLUTELY IGNORANT.

    Just wondering. When you know that it is not the 19th of june that ended slavery, but the 6th of december, why would you want to make the wrong date a holiday. Kind of insulting to people who were still slaves, isnt it? The 19th is a holiday in Texas, as it should be. But why would you pick the wrong date for the nation as a whole?

    Just like independence day, juneteenth should become a national holiday. It is after all a day of Independence and liberty for African American.

    I like her humor, lol and it’s great to make this a National Holiday or a celebration thru-out the rest of the country. As for the time of true emancipation, yes it took time after the war to get things in order. After all, all bills and rights and even court orders take months, so I don’t get the point of this video. Btw I don’t need to celebrate it, I’m not African American, just like when they celebrate anything else. I don’t need to be a part of it but of course, I will recognize it. Then again if I find myself involved that great too! I’ve always been moved from this part of America’s history and yes it’s been a long road to freedom for the African American. I hope and pray you learn from history and the mistakes. After all, we are all human and we need unity to keep the peace and the pursuit of happiness. Now Let’s keep America great and continue success. There is much work to do. Don’t get in the way be part of the human race!

    Remind me again why Independence Day gets to be a holiday but THE END OF SLAVERY isnt.

    I grew up btwn Chicago & Gary, IN, in an all white town in the 70s-80s. They didn’t teach us any of this. The only thing we were taught was when the war ended, w/ emphasis that the war wasn’t about slavery at all. On top of that, I took an Early American History class in college in NY state in the early 2000s, & still I heard nothing about Juneteenth. No systematic racism here 🙄.

    Will you go back to South Africa and help stop the real and inhuman violence in your home country before spreading false narratives in the US?

    Thank you for educating people. We didn’t learn much about US slavery at school in Bulgaria.

    Yeah, they never taught us about Juneteenth in school. In fact… school basically taught us that racism was a thing of the past. We need better education systems, and we need to do better about educating ourselves outside of school as well.

    why,”teenth”? teens were slaves?
    I’m not great at English, but “June 10th” would be “June tenth”,,,, I think

    Love the information! I knew about Juneteenth but learned something new. I’m aslo not a fan of fireworks…I guess if you’re a kid, but as an adult, they’re just loud lights in the sky.
