Bill Nye created a stir on social media when he posted The “Science Guy” about American founding and slavery.
“The United States We know this day was built by the hard work of enslaved black Americans, “said David Cook, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau.
With a pocket constitution and a simple selfie, Nye added: “The last ones were not (officially) released until 19 June 1865. We celebrate – and will never forget.”
The post hit back almost immediately as many consumers did not agree that Juneteet had ended slavery.
This is not accurate.

This is not true. Juneteint did not recall the 13th Amendment. It is reminiscent of the news of the liberation declaration that reached Texas. The two union states remained in slavery until December 1865.

In fact that is not true. The last of the rebel states was created in 1865 today. Delaware kept people enslaved until it was approved on the 13th. Indigenous tribes did so until 1866. A loophole was placed for slavery as punishment for the 13th offense.

Sadly Bill Nye was wrong.
It was not until the passage of the 13th Amendment in December 1865 that the last enslaved people were liberated.
The declaration of liberation did not cover Kentucky, along with Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia & Missouri.
Read the history book bill.

In fact, the last slaves were not liberated in Kentucky and Delaware (Joe BidenHome state of) until the 13th Amendment was passed on December 6, 1865

Please open it and let us know on what date the 13th Amendment was adopted in the Constitution to end slavery permanently.
Hint: This is not June 19th …..

Tell me you can not do a simple Google search without telling me you can do a simple Google search.

Many other consumers did not agree that the United States was specifically built “by the labor of slave black Americans” as Native Americans, as well as immigrants from Europe, South and Central America, Africa, Australia, and Asia.
I hope you exaggerate a bit in American construction, but you’re right about when legal slavery ended in the United States.

So when I immigrated to this country did I not cooperate in building this country? And countless others like me? How about the backlash of the countless immigrants who have “contributed” to this country? Do we all count?

June 19 In memory of US General Gordon Granger Arrived at Galveston, Texas, On June 19, 1865 – and shared the news that the Declaration of Redemption had been approved two years earlier. The Civil War ended two months before June 1865.
Last year, Juneteenth was ranked 12th in the country Federal holiday By 415-14 votes in the House of Representatives.
President Biden signed the bill on June 17, 2021.
The date symbolizes liberation – and is often referred to as “Second Independence Day” – and many states still allow slavery to continue.
Slaves were officially freed in December 1865, six months after the 13th Amendment was passed.
“Slavery or involuntary slavery, except as a punishment for a crime, is not legally prosecuted by the party and does not exist anywhere within the US or anywhere within their jurisdiction.” Thirteenth Amendment Reads.
It should be noted that examples of slavery beyond that date have been discovered and human trafficking, described as forced labor, continues to this day.
The International Labor Organization reports that there are more than 40 million victims of human trafficking worldwide, with hundreds of thousands believed to be in the United States.
ILO accredited by US Department of State As an official record keeper, there were 10,583 human trafficking cases in the United States last year and 73,946 cases since 2007.
