Officer Tatum, a Black man, does not celebrate Juneteenth and explains why in the clip below. He details what the holiday actually represents and does not represent. It’s portrayed as the real independence of black Americans. However, Officer Tatum has a far more important message about the meaning of this holiday.
Juneteenth took place two-and-a-half years after the Emancipation Proclamation but not all blacks were freed at that time. A war was fought to free them.
Black Americans in Galveston celebrated their freedom on Juneteenth when they were told they were free. But not all were free. The last people to give up their slaves were Native Americans.
Juneteenth celebrates an event for a small number of people in a small town.
It is important to note that not all black Americans were slaves and the first black slave owner in America was a black man.
Democrats are using this day, not to celebrate, but to divide Americans. That’s why Officer Tatum will not celebrate it. His message is, “don’t let them divide us.”
Watch the clip for this valuable information:
Basically, America is celebrating a fraud, one that is meant to replace July 4th, our actual Independence Day. It’s a virtue signaling holiday, similar to Indigenous Peoples’ Day which is gradually replacing Columbus Day.
Georgetown historian, Paul du Quenoy, says historically it’s nonsense.
“As history, Juneteenth (June 19, 1865) is nonsense. General Granger’s order only applied to Texas. Legal slavery continued in the Civil War border states of Delaware and Kentucky, which were left out of the Emancipation Proclamation for wartime political reasons, until the Thirteenth Amendment abolishing slavery as a matter of national constitutional law was ratified on December 6, 1865.”
“Since 1948, February 1 has been officially recognized as “National Freedom Day” in honor of the day in 1865 on which Abraham Lincoln signed the Congressional joint resolution that led to the Thirteenth Amendment. That date’s observance later gave rise to Black History Month, annually celebrated throughout February since 1976.”
General Granger’s order was always meant to be a work day.
It’s a pathetic ruse as a national holiday.
Professor du Quenoy Writes:
“But historical accuracy was never the point in promoting Juneteenth.
“The intent, rather, is to create a politically correct substitute for Independence Day – the nearby July 4 holiday – which in woke thought is now, however incredibly, tainted by association with 1776.
“Following the deeply flawed and factually inaccurate teaching of the disreputable 1619 Project, many of the woke persuasion believe that the War of Independence was driven principally by a desire to maintain slavery rather than protect the liberties of the American Founding.”
