"And there were also like i like i mentioned previously. Those who were assigning with the confederates were How for lack of a better turn the the barriers okay lag. You're not going to let my slaves. Go in. General gordon granger's i. Oh yes we will know yes we will. Yes we will so it was. It was still very much soul a struggle to actually a free aslis. We matter of fact we didn't even see even further down the line where the five civilized tribes who actually owned slaves did not let go right away either when they are when they hired when they had that particular proclamation Heard so it was. It was definitely a struggle and it had to really take the ratification of avert teeth amendment in forced. Mind you before we can actually say that. Oh yeah slavery is no longer things up. Your is except if you are a prisoner. But that's a whole word enforced is really really really significant. Because there's a difference between putting a law on the books and enforcing the law. And so i really wanna give this some historical significance. Because i'm gonna blow everybody's mind here right now but at the They didn't have the internet right so things traveled as fast as the person on horse or on train. Travelled and it got to the ears of the people who were physically present to hear it and whether or not it's spread from person to person really dependent on whether or not the person wanted to share that information and i think it's really significant to highlight. How difficult every time. A law was passed or proclamation. Like this happened how slow it was trickle out everybody but how even slower was to start enforcing it to start making sure that That the people were actually following through with it because if a landowner could get away with still having slaves they got away with still having slates current. That's very very true. Laura and nail on the head. When people talk i hear this i hear this people say things they say sir. Why do we need to have Enforcement of the laws property is theft. And why can't we all just agree to live in peace and harmony because there are fucking piece of shit assholes out there that will try to use force in the indifference of other people to get whatever the hell they want out of life in. So i i can't. I can't stress this enough. It's important that we have just laws and the equitable enforcement of those laws. Because they're always going to be assholes who will try to the wrong thing this and this is not a radical statement. I know but i'm tired of hearing it. From hippy. dippy people who just wanna latest thing her all do the right thing all the time. We have the right thing a wise so everyone's so obsessed with money and why can't you just get your parents to pay your bills. And why can't you fuck off and realize that there's nasty shit in the world and so eternal vigilance the price of liberty and all.

Juneteenth: A Celebration of Freedom

"Many people think slavery ended on the day. Abraham lincoln issued the emancipation proclamation in january eighteen. Sixty three but it actually took more than two and a half years for it to become official throughout all of the confederate states. Our correspondent pamela. Kirkland calls up. He's a museum specialists in oral history at the national museum of african american history and culture in washington. Dc to explain a bit more about the history of the holiday. We'll just start with what is juneteenth. June taint juneteenth this great day that is celebrated because on june nineteen eighteen. Sixty five general. Gordon granger arrived in galveston texas with order numbers sri announcing that the enslaved were now free this is important because although the emancipation proclamation had been signed in eighteen sixty three it had a little to no impact almost of the enslaved throughout the south. Because if there weren't union soldiers there to enforce it it literally. Nothing in did not change of your life if you were enslaved human being in texas. Which was the westernmost state. There was very little union presence throughout the war so it was as if nothing had happened in fact there were slave owners. He moved west to continue. The practice of slavery moved to texas for that purpose so this day this was a big day. He arrived with almost two thousand troops. Some of whom were united states colored troops and they enforced this order. What what kind of the history. Of june teeth in the legacy. It's only recently really bad. It's become more widely known. Yes i well. It started in texas so immediately a year. After this announcement they have the first juneteenth In texas in houston. The african americans their a saved up. Money and bought land is specifically for this purpose that became emancipation park and it was practiced throughout texas In also places like oklahoma is started to slowly spread with the great migration in which you see different ways so it was celebrated through the turn of the century than it waned a little. Then you see it's coming back after the after world war two then. There was another big boost after the civil rights era after the sixties.

"Today is June eighteenth a June. Nineteenth commemorates the ending of slavery. In the US the origin of the holiday comes from June nineteen, eighteen, sixty, five, when General Gordon Granger of the Union army, arrived with soldiers in Galveston Texas and told enslaved African Americans their the civil war had ended, and they were free more than two years after President Lincoln had signed the emancipation proclamation. June teeth is now celebrated in black communities across the US, and some have called for it to become a national holiday. Nearly all states recognize June teeth with some limited special status in this year. The NFL Nike and twitter have all recognized. June eighteenth as a company holiday. Governor Tom Wolfe is marking June. Teeth is a special holiday closure for employees under his during. For the first time is office as the more than seventy three thousand workers will get either the day off or a compensatory day to use it another time. If they are often, office remains open.

"You've never heard of Juneteenth you're probably not alone I didn't know about until we moved to Texas it's been it's been celebrated in Texas for a very long time and I guess it's kind of a Texas holiday but it's being celebrated this year all around the country and I think that's a good thing because there's something very important to learn from the holiday of Juneteenth is the oldest national celebrated commemoration of ending of slavery in the United States and it dates back to eighteen sixty five and it happened on June nineteenth eighteen sixty five there was a union soldier that came into Galveston Texas and all the soldiers came in with major general Gordon Granger and this is this is after the war has ended all right and slaves have been freed through the Emancipation Proclamation for a very long time but the people in in van Texas didn't know and they didn't know that the war was over because which plantation owner was going to tell their slaves that the war was over who is going to tell their slaves all bar where you're free none of these none of these Confederates were and the problem is that the the union didn't have a lot of soldiers down in Texas very few people down in Texas so there was nobody to deliver the news and it took time to deliver the news so anyway on June nineteenth Major General Jordan Granger and his troops arrive in Galveston Texas that's two and a half years after president Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation and he stands up and he says all slaves for two and a half years you been free the war is over the Emancipation Proclamation these southern Democrats these southern rebels did not want you to know this but you are free it was deliberately withheld that's a Juneteenth is all about and the important lesson to learn the Democrats that were enslaving and fighting for slavery where the reason why Juneteenth was two and a half years late but don't worry they've completely changed you can see by all their policies are not trying to enslave anyone today in fact let me tell you about the Atlanta GA Paul Howard now Paul Howard is the guy that said you know the cop that shoot the hood that shot the guy that took the taser from the other cop he's been charged with murder murder in fact his step mother or his visit his step mother or yeah I think it is his his step mother has been fired I think only because she was the step mother of this cop really welcome to America twenty twenty gang things are completely out of control now the the Georgia bureau of investigation that was investigating this they were asked by the the DA to investigate well they've been investigating they haven't even turned anything in yet and the DA has just decided I'm going for murder did did anybody see that shooting because that wasn't murder but I guess it doesn't matter anymore it doesn't matter because the Atlanta GA Paul Howard is fighting for his political life he's currently under investigation by the Georgia bureau of investigation for his alleged use of a non profit to funnel at least a hundred and forty thousand dollars in the city of Atlanta funds to supplement his salary yeah and he's also facing multiple sexual harassment lawsuits this guy's a prince and then there's this the state ethics commission is alleging that Howard committed a dozen violations of public disclosure law investigation allegedly revealed violations spanning for five years so it kind of puts into perspective why this guy is using the emotions of African Americans to go solo tough on the cops oh man a man on probation who failed a sobriety test who had who had just left prison for beating children he fought an attack to the police stole one of their weapons it was a taser and fired at them I'm curious what the hell did the DA expect the police to do what what what was it what would have justified deadly force in his mind what is the taser fired by Brooks what is in cav incapacitated one of the officers would have Brooks then went back and picked up the gun because that's why the police have to use deadly force once they get any kind of weapon and one of the officers is down all of it was possible and it all happened in the the in it about a two second span the DA said the shooting was unjustified because tasers aren't considered deadly weapons wow really because that's not what he believes two weeks ago when he charged six police officers with aggravated assault for using a taser against protesters I want you to listen to what he said just a couple of weeks ago alls and charged with aggravated assault of our ms pilgrim and this is for pointing a taser at Mrs Appiah room and is maybe if you all know under Georgia law a taser is considered as a deadly weapon under Georgia law so he these police officers pointed a taser this guy actually shot a cop with his own taser and now it's not a deadly weapon now either he's had a change of heart or he changes his stance on deadly force whenever it fits his political ambitions I think it's pretty clear to see which one it is an officer involved shootings the Georgia bureau of investigation is required to to investigate and submit a report to the district attorney but the DA didn't consult with the G. B. I. their formal statement yesterday said GB I was not aware of the press conference before was conducted we were not consulted on the charges filed by the district attorney despite today's occurrence the G. B. I. will complete its mission of completing an impartial and thorough investigation of this incident and it will submit the file once completed to the Fulton County district.

How Did Juneteenth Get Started?

"Every year on June nineteenth, millions of people across America. Come together to celebrate June eighteenth with parties parades, prayer, breakfast and golf tournaments, cookouts and music. The holiday is now officially recognized in forty seven states plus Washington DC though it hasn't been made a national holiday yet, despite having been around for more than one hundred and fifty years. We spoke with Paula Austin a professor of African American Studies and History at Boston University. She said You'd be surprised. There are many students who get to my class, and they sort of never learned about the history of enslavement. They've never learned about the civil rights movement. I think I've had students who because of where they're from, or their families know about June eighteenth, and of actually participated in the celebrations, but most students come, and they don't know. But let's go back to the beginning on June nineteenth eighteen, sixty, five more than two months after confederate general Robert e Lee surrendered to ulysses s grant at APP Maddix which all, but ended the civil war, a US army officer by the name of Major General Gordon Granger. In Huston Texas with two momentous announcements, the end of the civil war, and with it the end to slavery. Nobody is quite sure why it took so long for news of summation to reach Texas several stories have been told throughout the years though none has ever been confirmed including one of an earlier messenger who was killed on his way to Texas to tell the news of freedom. Others believe that some enslavers truth, but simply continued going about business as usual. The most likely is simply that there were not enough troops to enforce the emancipation proclamation whether enslaved people knew about it or not, so things remained status quo. That is until Major General. Grainger showed up. After granger's announcement, some of the two hundred fifty thousand freed people in Texas, immediately left for the promise of true freedom in the north, while others traveled to rejoin family members one formerly enslaved person, Molly Herrell said in the slave narratives of Texas. We all walked down the road singing shouting to beat the band. Others stayed defined pain work in the fields elsewhere. That day marks what is now often called lack independence day, or the fourth of July. It's the American celebration of freedom from slavery. June teen was first observed in Texas in eighteen, sixty six. It wasn't officially recognized as a holiday in any state until Texas did so in Nineteen, seventy nine. Since then only North Dakota South Dakota and Hawaii have declared a holiday. In recent years both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate have formally recognized June nineteenth as June, tenth Independence Day. Various movements to grant the day status is a national holiday are ongoing. US Senator Cory Booker said in two thousand eighteen. On this day we must confront ugly parts of our history and honor the slaves who suffered and died under a repressive regime. We must also pay tribute to all those who had the strength and conviction to fight to end slavery and keep our Union together. June teeth independence. Day is also an important moment to recognize how far we've come and take note of how far we have yet to go. Certainly during the original June eighteenth, there was still a lot of work to be done. It came just months after the civil war ended and two years after the emancipation proclamation was signed by President Abraham Lincoln the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which abolished slavery, had been passed by Congress was well on its way to being ratified by the states, but the fourteenth and fifteenth guaranteeing equal protection and the right to vote to all citizens, regardless of skin color were still a couple years off. And not all enslaved people in Texas were immediately freed some held by defiant plantation owners were not emancipated until much later, some formerly enslaved people who tried to leave historical reports show were tracked down and killed. Many more stepped into a future of poverty, fear and uncertainty. Austin suggests that many Americans ignorance about June eighteenth stems from a disinclination to completely face the country's past slavery, and it's far reaching and continuing aftermath. Still? June eighteenth has persevered. Its observance has waned through the years under the oppression of Jim Crow laws and attitudes, but the festivities that began in Texas eventually spread to more states and the idea of commemorating block independence picked up through the civil rights era of the nineteen sixties, and the parties continued today. Austin, said the kinds of celebrations that I've seen and been a part of have been incredibly wonderful there about black culture there about black history there about the resistance and the resilience of the black community. Several years before grainger made his do nineteenth declaration in Galveston famed American Orator Frederick Douglass himself formerly enslaved, spoke to an abolitionist group in New York about the fourth of July. As being dave independence, and how it didn't fit for all Americans, he said what the American slave is your fourth of July I answer a day that reveals to him more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. Opel Lee a former schoolteacher counselor in Fort Worth. Texas has been instrumental in trying to get June. Tenth recognized as a national, holiday. This year she'll walk from the Fort Worth Convention Center to the will. Rogers Coliseum, leading a caravan, urging people to sign a petition for the cause leave who is ninety three years old has been part of the Fort Worth June eighteenth festivities for more than forty years. Last year, it's as important as the fourth of July. In fact I dream some day. They celebrate from the nineteenth to the fourth like they do Mardi Gras. I haven't dreamed as large as the Rose Bowl or the macy's parade, but I'm getting there. To those who observed June eighteenth despite its shaky beginnings, and it's still unfulfilled pledge the day still holds the promise of freedom, independence, equality, ideas, and ideals always celebrating.

"Sort of financial tips, and that sort of thing. Let's go to Tom is calling in from New Hampshire. Tom, you're on free talk live all the time co host at your house. I believe that would be called a hostess. Anyway, today is June teen and that is the anniversary of the day when Major General Gordon Granger with thousands of union troops behind him. Marched into Galveston, Texas. Okay. He meant slave. All right. Hey, they were just Galveston, by the way. I mean it's not like we live in a free country. We're free in the United States of America, and neither way however, that's less free. Some even that slavery, that particular part of slavery. That was official illegal Indiana's states, did not end with the enforcement of the emancipation proclamation, okay? No twenty second. Eighteen sixty two. Lincoln realized that the United States was not winning the war, and that the in order to get a pro war congress elected in eighteen sixty two he had to turn it into a war to free the slave as so he knows the patient. Starting in one hundred days New Year's day eighteen sixty three any people held us leave in territory. Still in rebel, hands would be then then for that forever free, right? It's pointing out there were four slave states that did not wait a second. Declaring which places were free in. I mean, which ones we're still considered to be in confederate hands, right? Because maryland. Which counties in all? Federate ham counties. States counties. I don't know that you can hear me at all. Tom. Can you hear me Tom, Tom? I think Tom's gone. Tom had an issue there. He's absolutely right on that. It's worth pointing out that and lower you probably don't know this stuff because you don't spend any time thinking about it. Lincoln put out the emancipation proclamation, there were four states in the union that in the union, the United States, not the confederacy confederate states United States that still had slavery. It was like Kentucky and maybe West Virginia, Maryland, these border states and might have been Delaware to. I'm not a hundred percent. Sure. But it was those border states. I know Maryland was definitely one of them and a he didn't free the slaves in those states with the emancipation, proclamation the great emancipator never free to slave in the country that he ruled over not one. Get he put out the emancipation, proclamation sure he did. But it was like an election thing kind of Trump and his. Immigrants and the a campaign promise, just a campaign promise, really. And I mean, people are freer were freer after I certainly not here to support slavery, by any stretch of the imagination as it existed in the south the time, but I would agree with Tom that we all sort of live in a bit of slavery. Now, when the government claims of an amount of your income and claims a portion from you for your property. What is this difference, because you can never own truly own your property. You are leasing it from the government, right? You're you're basically in a lease. It's better lease than the normalise. You're gonna sign. Here's tom. We've got him back here. Just gonna go ahead and take him on air. Tom, you're back on free talk live. Yeah. There was a question in there. Mainly Kelty's in Louisiana were considered to be in confederate hands. I don't know what they all of them because there aren't any counties Louise. Oh, I see. The other part of it is that it wasn't until the thirteenth amendment was ratified at affective, undescended six eighteen sixty five after the war was over that he was banned in Delaware was banned in Maryland, by a referendum. What? I would presume somewhere between sixty to sixty five. Yeah, it was banned in Maryland with a referendum eighteen sixty four. Okay. And what what's going on there is that it looked like it was narrowly defeated. But the new state constitution was ratified after all these votes from union soldiers candidate. Cast military ballots, and the confederate soldiers could not. And that's not fair. But so what's Lavery is not fair in Maryland plays or freed by using ballots in Virginia. The plays were freed by using bullet whatever works, you know, there's a point where, hey, we don't care. See Lincoln head too much respect for the rule of law. I'm with you on this one time. Thanks for the call. Appreciate that. So laura. Are you familiar with the John? I think it's John Brown. Rebellion that went on in Missouri? You don't hear much about this one but there's net. Something was another rebellion. The went on. I can't remember his name off the top of my head. But there are several rebellions that went on and John Brown was an abolitionist who's actually contemporary Sanders. Spooner whom I'm sure you've heard of, and he. Well, he decided that violent revolution was the only way. So get together some slaves. He finds an armory. Tries to arm the slaves and tries to have a revolt, I don't know, the, you know, the long the short of exactly how it worked. But essentially, they're ready to shoot some folks in order to make slaves free. And I think that we're just now getting far enough from that point in time like a hundred more than one hundred fifty years, where we can kind of look back and say, you know, that might have been appropriate because I don't think Americans are quite ready to in many cases. Many, Americans aren't quite ready to grop, the idea of shooting people in order to free slaves, but, you know, they didn't have any problem within the slaves. They didn't have any problem killing the slaves, if you if your slave just wasn't worth working anymore. Just not worth having around. They wouldn't even use a gun. They just use a hammer, and that was the respect. They had for human life now, that's not every instance, every time there's plenty of stories out there where slaves live riddle relatively good lives. But there's plenty of them that it's not that nice and Hollywood likes to play the, the worst angles. But, you know, I can see why nothing pleasant about it. And as you were saying with, with your home, the government claims that just like a Lord claims the field of surf, you'll give me a portion of the fruits of your labor. You know, you're growing wheat, I need ten bushels, Lord's gonna sell those bushels or keep them or whatever he's going to do. And that's his because his land, not the surf's, right? And it's their land. It's your local governments land, not yours. The number eight five five four five zero three seven three three it's eight fifty five four fifty free as.

Bill, Rakoff, CBS news, Washington hope Hicks. The president's former White House communications director emerges with a smile from behind closed doors on Capitol Hill. She was testifying before members of the House Judiciary committee today. But how much testimony is really question here? Because House Democrats say that Hicks was extremely tight lipped today and would not answer questions as basic as where she sat in the west wing or whether she told the truth to special counsel, Robert Muller. The president on Twitter says the hearings are rigged called an extreme presidential harassment.
