This irritates me every time I see it because it's factually incorrect.

Slavery existed in Kentucky and Delaware, Union states, right up until the 13th was ratified on December 6th, 1865...six months after Juneteenth.

Instead of getting irritated, you could celebrate the end of slavery in the USA on the anniversary of Dec. 6th, 1865.

ETA: UA should probably correct that. It's easy:

Seems kind of wrong to celebrate the end of slavery on a date when there were still slaves.

Like I said, celebrate it whenever you like. The important thing is that slavery was abolished.

Or is it the fact that black men are finding any and everything to be offended by. Not one individual is associating race with that chant. This has become silly nonsense.




I think it's becoming apparent that the protesters have found a shortcut to 150 years of political bureaucracy.

I’m wondering when they come after the Alabama State flag. Even though it isn’t really similar to the Confederate flag for the most part, it still has a St. Andrew’s Cross.

Fun Fact


Slavery continued in various Native American nations and tribes for YEARS after the end of the Civil War and the 13th amendment.

re: If you think "Roll Tide" is safe from the purge, I have some sad news.
I’m a descendant of Raphael Semmes (Captain of the CSS Alabama) and have heard about “Roll Tide” being based on that “Roll Alabama” song my whole life. Now if that’s just family lore or based in fact is uncertain to me. Considering that football in the South became popular because it was seen as a way to somewhat avenge the Civil War, then it wouldn’t shock me if there’s some connection there. Roll Bama Roll had an article on it a few years back LINK

However, we live in crazy times and while I don’t expect there to be a movement to ban it based on all that, it wouldn’t really shock me either.
