Vice President Kamala Harris botched a history lesson about the Juneteenth anniversary, informing students that black people had been slaves in America for 400 years, which is more than 150 years longer than the real period, showing that Harris either doesn’t know the history or made a terrible math mistake.
Harris was speaking to a group of approximately two dozen primary school-aged students gathered at the National Museum of African American History.
“I think that we all know today is a day to celebrate the principle of freedom, and think about it in terms of the context of history, knowing that black people in America were not free for 400 years of slavery.”
“Let this be a day that is a day to celebrate the principle of freedom, but to speak about it honestly and accurately, both in the context of history and current application,” Harris continued.
In 1619, the first African slaves came into the American colonies in Virginia. Slavery was abolished by the 13th Amendment, which was ratified in 1865, ending the system after 246 years, not 400.
“The vice president was referring to 400 years since slavery began,” a White House official explained.
Hariss explained that Juneteenth is a great opportunity to discuss freedom. Juneteenth, a federal holiday in the United States, commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. Juneteenth celebrates the anniversary of Gordon Granger’s 1865 proclamation of freedom for all enslaved Texans.
“With the Emancipation Proclamation and Civil War, it required America to really ask itself, who is free? How do we define freedom? Freedom in terms of the autonomy one should have? Is freedom given to us, or are we born with freedom? Right?” Harris said.
“I would argue it is our God-given right to have freedom. It is your birthright to have freedom. And then during slavery, freedom was taken. And so we’re not going to celebrate being given back what God gave us anyway, right?”
“We should think about it also in terms of current application, asking is everyone we know free?” Harris went on. “Do we know anyone who is not free? Around the world do all people have freedom? Are there those who are without freedom? When we talk about freedom, are we talking about freedom from — or are we talking about the freedom to?”
Kamala Harris is often mocked for her ridiculous public speeches:
Vice President Kamala Harris is on video butchering another speech so bad that she sounds like a broken record saying the same thing over and over.
Kamala Harris said: “We will work together, and continue to work together, to address these issues…and to work together as we continue to work, operating from the new norms, rules, and agreements, that we will convene to work together…We will work on this together.”
The vice president has been mocked left and right for years as she often seems unprepared and unknowlegeable with the task at hand. Critics slam the United States government for allowing Joe Biden to make a ‘diversity’ hire based on her gender and skin color, rather than her career background, work, ethics and skills that would qualify her to be vice president.
It remains clear to this day that Kamala Harris appears unfit to lead a country and hiring people for diversity reasons is never the most successful path for an entity to take.
