But they say those enslaved in galveston were the last slaves in southwestern part of the united states right now just in the southwestern part you know let me jump let me let me let me jump in there because we actually have that graphic and i wanna i wanna make sure because again. I didn't know this history. And i appreciate you making that distinction. Because just because we're ignorant of the history doesn't make a stupid bob.

June nineteen eighteen sixty five the day on which slavery finally came to an end. The united states put that on the screen for me. If if if you guys have it handy. And this was passed april tenth nineteen ninety-seven this is where it got entered into the national record incorrectly. And it's taken and the screen. It's pass of april tenth nineteen ninety-seven And it was incorrect on the national record. All the way up until this week like at this week is they were talking about this legislation. It was getting ready to be entered into the national record signed into law by the president with incorrect information. But as it got as as people like you and other historian started establishing the record correctly word got around and then they made this correction. Wanna bring up the next one that you just mentioned which was the resolution from the senate That was that eventually became law. And this is the distinction that they made Whereas news of the end of slavery did not reach the frontier areas states.

Whereas juneteenth independence day began as a holiday in the state of texas and is now celebrated in forty eight states and the district of columbia as a special day of observance in recognition of the emancipation of all slaves in the united states. Saw right in the first paragraph got it wrong in the second paragraph it it. it wasn't the freedom for all slaves again family. I i need you to understand this.

He's telling you those of our ancestors stealing those four border states maryland missouri kentucky in delaware slavery still legal and again. When west virginia became a state. Slavery was still legal now. Three of those got rid of slavery and the state. That mitch mcconnell is from kentucky and the state that the president is from delaware. Those two states never abolished the As a matter of fact they didn't sign the thirteenth amendment delaware sounded thirteenth amendment in one thousand nine hundred one kentucky sign the thirteenth amendment in nineteen seventy six.

"Yeah but but it. It's like that it's here is something that's actually happening. On this day that we're getting together to celebrate something that the entire country can celebrate is it is unifying and we could definitely say that the entire country can and should celebrate the fact that we ended slavery and we can that june nineteenth the best fitting day to commemorate that. Now i've seen. I've also i've heard arguments and i think if you're gonna be technically legally technical about this you could say well. The day. The thirteenth appointment was ratified. Might be a better day. But i don't. I don't think it i don't think so I don't think it has the same Again because slavery that point already been eliminated hadn't been officially eradicated constitutionally for all time but and that would be creating something out of whole cloth i mean in a sense because they're already is at least some traditional and so yeah it's a perky and you would like that a little bit better i think. Maybe maybe. maybe that's the best way that i can describe this right. That holidays like the fourth of july and juneteenth and to some extent. I i suppose you could say veterans day which was originally Armistice day thanksgiving those are those are the more berkey and pre existing holidays right that the federal government just sort of recognizes as opposed to The federal government saying. Hey let's have a holiday here. Yeah i see what you're saying. But i also think it's you know it's there is something to be said for taking a pause to commemorate things that are important in our history even though they don't have that sort of prediction behind because they can of course because you can't celebrate juneteenth before you know the eighteen sixties. Obviously right so you know that kind of thing so so yeah all right. Well i guess we largely agree on that and before we get something that you might have a little bit more disagreement on and that is the fed and interest rates. We're going to take a final quick break.

When the number will get announced on thursday marquette would say what the number was it was just an estimate they were just looking at percentages and how it was going they did not really ever know for sure and now but now the with the digitals coming in you know almost immediately y. You're buys it might take you know twenty four hours but because it's digital you're getting an online you know so we figure the trailer fight club and the fight. Tv numbers by monday. They had a no a good number there but there was no way they knew what the satellite cable numbers where they couldn't even have any idea what the cable satellite numbers work. Because there's nothing to compare it to right because they did. They did not know and they couldn't use the numbers that they got off the digital because that was a totally different audience. By that there's gonna buy off of tv. So that you know. I i question added beginning For a fact that the trailer number on the tyson roy. Jones fight was accurate. I mean look. We learned this week. That jake paul has signed a deal for his next fight with showtime. If jake paul was so successful on trailer why wouldn't they burrow the bank atom to sign him like that to me just reading tea. Leaves tells me that number of wonder if something's up with thriller right because you know tyson you. There's been the kevin this of flew onto. Tyson is upset with them. And it's kind of one of the radovan roy. Jones told me on the podcast a couple of weeks back that he was pursuing legal avenues against trailer like he. That's what he said last week because he doesn't believe he was paid what he was supposed to be. Paid is upside. Yeah so of course. You got paid as guarantee the night of the five at the upset nine. That's the thing right so you look you know. You wonder what's happening with you know with trailer. When you hear this right that to jake paul say i know something i don't know i don't want to sit here and say that there are about to go under because that would be a huge leap forward that i don't have the evidence to back up but you look at it and you go. Kay tyson is upset and you know and he said he's not going to fight for them again. That's going to wind up in court roy jones. The rumor of not having been paid a upside on his. That's an issue.

A new 0-day in Win7 through Win10
"As i said we have a new zero day and it's a complicated by the fact that it is existed at least since windows ten which as we know. Microsoft has at least since windows seven. Oh i'm sorry. Yeah since windows seven. Wow so last week. We talked at some length about the bug. Google found in the free type library which had been in use since june nineteenth. Two thousand fifteen or more than five years. What we knew then was that this flaw which was patched by that update to chrome was a zero day because it was being actively exploited. They you know. They fixed it in from one when they were notified. They fixed it within twenty four hours which was impressive response and they notified the free type people who also fixed it within twenty four hours also impressive. What we did not learn until the end of last week was that there was a previously secret. Second part to this zero day. The free type law was what was being exploited through chrome to open the door to the attacker but as is often the case thanks to modern operating system design the damage that can be done by an abberant application or exploit of an application running under the non root user account is deliberately minimal in modern operating systems. All of today's web browsers are careful to run under the users. Deliberately limited account privileges. This is why successful. Attacks and attackers often need to chain two or more exploits together to accomplish their nefarious ends. If the free type library happened to run in the kernel then a single exploit in it might have been sufficient but free type was also properly designed to run in user space so exploiting the free type flaw opened the door but the attacker then needed to elevate their privilege on the system to route or kernel level in order to get anything useful like from the attackers standpoint. Done the week before all of this. Google had seen the whole picture or presumably. The person who informed them had they saw this second phase. Which was leveraging a previously completely unknown and quite potent zero day flaw in windows to achieve privilege elevation. This was allowing the attackers. Then you know to do some real damage the privilege elevation that they discovered by watching it in action existed or actually i should say exists. Because it's still does today within the windows kernel based thus we have a problem there cryptographic services. Api and because that colonel based module the cryptographic services module exports and api. that's callable from user land. The bad guys can arrange to run their malicious code with full system permissions google's project zero folks immediately reached out to microsoft to inform them of what they had found and also to explain that since this was an act of vulnerability being exploited in the wild project zero normal patient ninety day disclosure window would be reduced as they even did for themselves to just one week actually. They only needed a day. And that's why the industry subsequently learned of this only late last week. That was seven days after. Actually eight after google told microsoft so the project zero the google's project zero day disclosure starts off with saying note. We have evidence that the following bug is being used in the wild therefore this bug is subject to a seven day disclosure deadline. And we've seen these in the past when we've talked about this and look did these in the period before the disclosure deadline all there is is just like a placeholder page no juicy details available because you know they're holding that embargoed until the problem can bet can't got fixed. They begin their right up by explaining the windows kernel. Crypt cryptography driver. C. n. g. dot says exposes a backslash device backslash c. n. g. device to user mode programs so in other words there's a. There's a divide the so that the cryptography driver looks like a device which exposes services through a device driver interface to programs running on top of the operating system and it supports a variety of a windows calls i. Ctl's i oh control calls. They said with non trivial impetus Input structures it constitutes a locally accessible attack surface that can be exploited for privilege escalation and they said such as sandbox escape. So of course they're they're they're viewing it from the stats from the standpoint of a sandbox escape because they're because the way this would have gotten in was through the browser which at and we know that running in the browser is deliberately sandbox so that it if it does something wrong it doesn't have access to much but by taking advantage of this. That code is able to escape from google's own chrome sandbox so microsoft for their part doesn't see this as such an emergency. Google has already closed and locked the front door. Through which attackers were able to reach the crypto. Api vulnerability and november's patch tuesday being next tuesday a week from this podcasts. Date of the third which you'll be the november tenth expects to have this fixed
Boston - Springfield Detective Fired After ‘Hurtful’ Anti-Police Social Media Post
"Protests in recent weeks have revealed tensions between police and the black lives matter movement. An incident in Springfield reported this morning underscores that tension on May thirtieth a detective in the Springfield Police Department posted a picture on Instagram of her knees. Holding a sign at a black lives matter rally in Atlanta. It drew criticism from officers in her department. Mass live reports. The detective was fired on June nineteenth by Springfield Police Commissioner Cheryl Clap route. The former detective joins us now from Springfield flonaise. Welcome to Radio Boston. Thank you. Can you bribery? So flourish, so your story was first reported by mass. Live in Springfield Republican reporter Stephanie Berry, I wonder. Can you walk us through what happened beginning with? What was the picture? And why did you post it? Yes on the. Post and was a photo of my niece and her friend protesting the killing of toward floyd on the protests took place in Atlanta Georgia. On my niece and her friend, holding signs one of the signs read. Who Do you call when the murderer? Where's badge and the sign that my niece was holding? said shoot the F. Back. Okay. That content could be considered threatening. You acknowledge that the posting could be considered hurtful or threatening to fellow officers. Did you think about that when you posted it? I mean it could be construed as threatening to you as a police detective is well. I didn't take the polls. Have be an anti COP You know when I. When I shared the Post I, Think about how others would perceive it, at no point that I share that post with malicious intent just so you know supporting my niece and her right to a practice her first amendment. So then what happened floor? So you posted it? What did you hear from Your Department from other officers? What happened next? So after share in the post a few hours later, I received messages on on social media. Phone calls text messages. From some of my officers who express their concerns They said that they don't look good that it looked like an anti Kat post once I realized that I had offended some of my fellow officers I immediately deleted the post and I apologize to those who had reached out to me, and I also think them for you know looking out for me. I. Know that right now. At that time, emotions were very high, or all the officers with everything that was going on, not protest that was happening throughout the country. the following day I received a phone call from direct captain before he could explain himself I explained that I why he's calling me but at no point did I share that pulse with malicious intent or Ernie intent to harm or fund any of my fellow officers but the captain stated that the Commissioner was highly upset. She was embarrassed and then I did express the him that I understand How she you know. She could be embarrassed in offended especially after she honored hardship for me, the Commissioner has done a lot for me. All my career my one year career in the in the department. Excuse me. On the day after the phone call with the captain, I met with the Commissioner Commissioner Clap. there was a few deputies in the office as well a few captains, and I went in with my us union present Joe Gentile. in the meeting the Commissioner. basically told me that you know I embarrassed her and that she was highly upset with me. Especially after honoring to hardship, I apologize to her and I and I told her that I understand where my fellow officers are coming from, but at no time did I post that with militias and another time? did I think that might be as anti cop. I told her that I. You know I. Should apologize to all the officers. I'm sorry till the up to supervisors who advocates for me? I think that they deserve an apology from embarrassing and she went on to tell me that people had called up to the. Commissioner's Office and And when I see people I, mean my officers and they were upset and they wanted me terminated She did say that she thinks very highly of me in the. She didn't want to terminate me and then you'd have to figure out a way to fix this. after I left that meeting I consulted with my union president Joe Gentile. after control than what time we both agree that it'd be a good idea to go on a local high bdo. IBP Oh page. And, put up. The public apology to my fellow officers I put up the apology later that day and once I put up the apology I had a few officers that you know basically told me it's okay. No where he's. We all make mistakes. you know we. We have to stick together. Then received a lot of insults and threats on there as well. I'm sorry to interrupt you I know there's a little more to this story, and I do want to give you a chance to tell it, but I need to clarify a couple of things that you've already said. You said that the commissioner said to fix it in the mass live reporting today. She denied that she had said fix. It had a quote that said quote. Once you post something. It's out there and you can't retract it. That post was hurtful to many of her co-workers. What do you make of the dispute between your sense that she told you to fix it and her saying, but that is not what she said. I'm when I was in that meeting. I recall those words like he needs to figure out fix this. and I remember being. Sorry go ahead. No no, that's okay. Finish your thought, please. I'm I'm commenting on that? Okay, also, you said that the commissioner honored hardship for you. Some of our listeners may not know what that means. Can I please ask you to explain that? I'm so dern. The pandemic the kits for being home schooled and I. also have my father who has cancer that I for so i. Put it in a re. I spoke with my captain I was on the midnight shift. I was working twelve eighty a And I wrote up a hardship after consulting with the CAP, and he told me to put in a hardship I wrote to the Commissioner asking to go back to four to twelve as a patrol officer. And in order for me to homeschool my three children and look after my father. a few days later. She authored my hardship while I'm and. Threw me in the TV as a FDU detective. So made you a detective? Yes, Ma'am! Okay thank you now after you posted the apology, you got mixed results or responses from that my apology, my understanding was ultimately you withdrew the apology. You then later were part of a larger picture that was taken of the force, and then on that same day. Receive News that you could either resign or be fired. Do I have those events correct? Yeah! And so the firing was about a week and a half ago. Yeah, it was on Friday to nine hundred. And did it come as a surprise to you on that day? Yes, it did after spoke with Some of the supervisors in the department. They had basically told me you know lay low. Just try to blend in you know, take this as a small bumping your career and a lesson learned and You know you'll get through this. Why do you think you were fired? At this point. You know I I am I don't know. Like the Commissioner as the Commissioner stated She was pressured by the mayor I think it was It was driven my politics but that's as far as I can comment on that. Were there discussions within the police force during the the weeks of the protests prior to you posting your Social Media Post. About the protests, the movements the discussions about police brutality. Were you talking with with fellow detectives or other officers about that? Did you have a sense of where they stood into? They have a sense of where you stood. I'm no. We didn't talk much about it I. Mean I had one one officer life spoke with that was very closely with in regards to the protest and I think we both stood in support of the black lives. Matter Movement. And other than that I. didn't I didn't really? Have conversations about the protests with other fellow officers. And after you posted your apology, why do you believe that some officers came back? with strong responses threatening language. I think is the term that you used it, Cetera. Why do you believe the apology was not sufficient to kind of to begin to heal the controversy around your post? I believe emotions are just very high at this time. You know like I can't tell you why they felt offended. again I had some even had some that some officers at attack me. Flirt so, we reached out to the Springfield police to either appear on the show or to provide comment commissioner share a clap route sent us a statement, said quote. This was Miss Fuentes a second infraction during her probationary period complaints about her social media posts came from co workers who were hurt by it, and questioned her stance on the quote that advocated shooting police officers. It was my decision to terminate her employment and quote. What does she mean by a second infraction?

Don't @ Me: The Story Behind Twitch's $25 Million Sex Addiction Lawsuit
"So recently twitch was served a twenty five million dollar lawsuit by Guy Dealing with a severe sex addiction. Basically he believes that the hundreds of women streamers he follows, makes his sex addiction worse in. It's all twitches fault. Yeah this story is as crazy as it sounds. Let's get into it. Guys were streaming over at twitter DOT TV. Slash the score e sports, and we're adding more and more content every single week, so whether it's talkshow clouded or the rotating Friday streams follow the channel, so you know when we go live, and maybe you'll catch me winning another absurd game of chess. I one call now wait what what kind of stupid game! I. Don't honestly I don't know how the first happened. Okay? Now back to the lawsuit on June fifteenth. A guy named Eric Estherville filed twenty five million dollar lawsuit against twitch lawsuit states that s still suffers from a bunch of health issues, including OCD, depression and a severe sex addiction, and the lawsuit goes on to say that quote. Because of these maladies he heavily relies on the Internet for all of his entertainment, purposes and quote. Quote and basically he suing twitch, because he alleges that women twitch streamers make his sex addiction OCD worse quote twitches severely exacerbated his condition by displaying many sexually suggestive women, streamers through twitches, twisted programming, and neck owed making it nearly impossible for the plaintiff to use twitch without being exposed to such sexually suggestive content and quote to be clear, and this is in the lawsuit s to below follows exactly seven hundred eighty six women streamers. Zero male streamers not only does the lawsuit named twenty popular women's streamers including. And pokey, Main in-includes, pages, and pages of photos of these women as evidence as I was going through this lawsuit looking through these photos, it just felt really weird. It didn't sit right with me. One other issue that s says exacerbates his sex. Addiction is the fact that you can't choose to break down streams by gender quote. There's no way for the plaintiff to filter streams. He'd like to. To Watch based on gender, male or female. Therefore, the plaintiff has to choose a game and or category to watch with thumbnails, showing these scantily clad women alongside men of being the only streaming channels available to him and quote now in reality you could manually filter between men and women streamers, depending on who you follow, but remember according to the lawsuit Esta follows exactly seven, hundred, eighty six. Six women, streamers and zero men again, according to the lawsuit, the twenty five million dollars estabilish, asking for is to be split between him in other twitch prime turbo subscribers with the rest of the money leftover going to charities of the courts, choosing on top of the twenty five million s Davila was asking twitch permanently banned the twenty women named in the lawsuit. Okay, everything we just discussed. Discussed makes up the front half of the lawsuit. The entire back half of a lawsuit is dedicated to multiple academic papers, breaking down the history in research done on sex, addiction and listen. This is a real medical issue in this guy deserves all the help that he needs. But blaming women on twitch is probably not the answer now. If you're thinking where the hell did this come from. Actually ESTHERVILLE. Oh has history of filing these kind of over the top lawsuits. It all starts back in two thousand nine after s Davila was banned from PS end for being a troll while playing resistance fall of man online and if you didn't know. Is Basically playstations online ecosystem similar to xbox live? Here's a quote from an interview. He did with an gadget when he originally filed the lawsuit quote. I sued Sony because when they banned me, they banned my whole console, which is like a five hundred dollar waste there because I can't go online anymore, which was one of my ways of socializing so when I sued for fifty five thousand dollars that was something called punitive damages. When you're trying to penalize a company, and that's what I was trying to do. Penalize them for banning someone and quote from there. He sued Sony again. Plus Microsoft in ten does over flaws in different console designs that he purposely tried to find that in. In Two thousand ten I Japan gamespot could talk in a bunch of other gaming websites did their job in wrote about the lawsuits that Estella had filed against Sony Microsoft and Nintendo and he really didn't like that like as in he filed one giant lawsuit against thirteen different websites, because he was upset about the fact that they were writing about him. estabilish became so notorious that he was given all sorts of nicknames, the plaintiff the serial sewer. The list goes on. Also he wants sued blizzard, because apparently walking in world of warcraft took too long and in the lawsuit he tried to rope in actress, Wynona Ryder to explain the significance of alienation in Catcher in the Rye and quote. Rider, catcher in the Rye world of warcraft lack. Of and you probably won't be surprised to hear that. All eight lawsuits were either dropped by Estella himself or dismissed by the court outright now the complaint against twitch was filed on June fifteenth, while the summons was served to them on June nineteenth meaning legally now they have to respond in court, and while twitch hasn't made an official statement on this situation. It's only a matter of time before the core proceedings become public and hey, maybe this case will farther than anyone else was expected. What? He said all the haters. I'm not trying to zag just because everybody else is going in one direction, but I honestly don't understand. A lot of the complaints like people are really upset about the story, choices and things like that and it's just like. Why why are you upset that somebody told you a story that. You didn't agree with the choices like it's not your fucking story to tell. And I get that we have connections to characters, and when certain things happen. It makes you upset, but. Really. I fundamentally do not understand how people can be upset about somebody else's narrative created in Britain.

"Today is Wednesday June, twenty, four, th twenty twenty, and this is your host Steven Novella joining me this week or Bob Novella. Cara Santa Maria Addy Jada Villa Hey. Guys and Evan Bernstein good evening, folks. How is everyone doing? Well Steve Good question. Yeah I've realized now that I really know how well I'm doing. I'm trying to figure out like. What twenty twenty like I don't know. Should I talked to you about how? I'm feeling today or ninety eight point six? Yeah, Vega question. It is a big question because it's. Everything is so weird. You know it is yeah, it's not natural. For data, let's go over. The covert numbers is so here's the. Interesting thing because if you look at the curve for the world, we're still on the upswing. This this pandemic is is accelerating still. Yep, we haven't even crested the first wave. You know if you're looking at new daily cases worldwide that slope is still increasingly going up if Daily new cases, the greatest single number of new cases on June, nineteenth, one, hundred, eighty, two, thousand, one, hundred and eighty two cases June nineteenth. So you know that we have to keep that in mind. I think if you're on a part of the world that's past the crest of the wave. It feels like it's over, but it really isn't and the United. States is a microcosm of that right because the wave is going through the United States and the the. The northeast were four of the five of us live were passed the peak and we're on the downslope, but other than the northeast rest of the country and most states are still increasing. There's still pre crest. You know of that I believe we have like a weird thing where we were extended in California now it's like getting worse again like we thought we were on the other side of it, but then when we opened of course well, that's the other thing. Nope the opening, so it's kind of a by humped wave because we did manage to flatten up, and now it's turning, but we didn't really turn it down, but it did start in those in some states it was flat, and then they opened up cautiously, and that's good, and then some states opened up not so cautiously, and they're surging. They are spending Arizona is the worst right now, but Farda Florida. Yes, or then a bunch of other states are really spiking. You know so. We're not out of the woods yet. You know he's this again. This is the the the. This is the home stretch, but this is that part of the marathon where like you really gotta dig down and keep going? And that's challenging because. Everyone wants to be outside. We all WanNa be at the beach. We all want to be at parties and social gatherings. It's a normal time of year otherwise to do those sorts of things. But. We still have to be cautious and take all the precautions necessary so total cases worldwide nine point, five million total deaths, four, hundred and eighty, three thousand are approaching half a million in the US for a Ching one hundred twenty thousand deaths. That's what are the projection Steve? So it's really hard. Yes, we're. We're at at least one hundred nineteen thousand. They're saying in the US alone two point three million cases. This is almost certainly an underestimate underestimate. The states that are that are spiking the most South Carolina Florida, Texas Oklahoma and Idaho. Rope I've read. One model, one analysis that says that this I wave is probably gonNA, and with about two hundred thousand. That's about where we're going to land and then second waves. Anyone's guess right? It depends on what happened at that point, but given that we're at one hundred nineteen now and most states are still on the increase that seems like a reasonable estimate. But then you the farther out you go. Obviously, the more variables there are so becomes harder to predict and like there's still the big unknown of. When a vaccine is going to become available here, conflicting things so I think the experts are just making their best gas based upon where we are right now, but nobody could really say for sure, but that could be a game changer will see. This is getting a lot of variables there and don't forget. Some people estimate that or estimate that our numbers now one hundred nineteen thousand could be off by thirty fifty percent could be low by thirty. Really did yeah the. Be. Fifty one specific thing I wrote my my science based medicine blog this morning on this mess event held in Phoenix Mega Church. Because heard about this. Yeah, I was actually interviewed for inside edition which they would last night and I wrote about it today as well, and they're holding a trump rally. They're actually they did yesterday, right? But the the the owners of the Church said. We're good. We're okay because we've installed this special air ventilation air filtration system that will remove ninety nine percent ninety nine point nine percent of the covert virus within ten minutes. So everyone is saw every leasing. Why don't we have? Every plane if that works, yeah, the church is a massive complex, but it has a main auditorium that can hold several thousand people at one time, so it's it's bad. 'cause like this big kind of some somewhat circular auditorium. So you know I wrote an article basically breaking down why that claim that is total nonsense the idea that if you have an effective air filtration system. That you can mask either in side so a couple. Quick points hit. The highlights the idea that it removes ninety nine point nine percent of the virus that. Isolation is plausible because filters can do that, the question is how much time would it take to do that now? They said ten minutes, but that's based upon study of a small closed, sealed off room,

Juneteenth: People are hungry for change
"We observe June team alongside millions of other Americans. It's a one hundred fifty five year old holiday commemorating the day enslaved African Americans learned of their freedom on this day June nineteenth in eighteen sixty five major. General Gordon Granger of the Union army arrived in Galveston Texas and informed the enslaved black population that the civil war had ended, and slavery had been abolished eighteen, sixty five. That's over two years after president. Lincoln's emancipation proclamation took effect. Texas on the other confederate states ignored the proclamation, and in doing so submitted enslaved African Americans to thirty extra months of uncompensated labor and inhumane treatment this. This day the day honoring the reinstatement of freedom that should have never been taken away the day that freedom was lawful, and yet still withheld represents many Americans, the difference between the ideals of the American dream and the reality for black people in this country, the June team holiday has largely been observed by the US black population wall, and efforts to make June Tiv a national holiday have fallen short in Congress as twenty twenty, though forty seven states and the District of Columbia have all passed legislation recognizing June Tepe as either a state holiday or a day of observance this year.

Companies and state governments celebrate Juneteenth, giving workers the day off
"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. The Governor says today is a moment to honor African, American history, and to reflect on how everyone can promote equality, liberty and justice for all people.
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.
