The south lost the Civil War and the loss left disgrundle White men, even today. Some wealthy, most poor. The White man longed for life before civil war. Slow motion Civil war acts lives today.  result was the passing of laws, know as black codes, so that White supremacy still would reign. 

Yes, there would be no more US slavery, but there would be laws and anyone who come against those laws would be imprisoned and treated as slaves were treated. See 14th Amendment. JuneTeenth ended slavery in America. The strength of Blacks to endure changed America for better. 

JuneTeenth always was celebrated in my family. My great grandmother was a slave. My great grandfather was an Indian. My maternal and paternal grandparents owned their own farms. My parents left their parents farms and relocated to Houston, where they found work and attempted to raise a family. Racism would take down my father's pride. He was skilled in many areas, yet he could not find work, or the work he had would not adequately support his family. He suffered an on the job injury, and never again was able to support his family.

Through all my family endured, never once did any adults in my life teach or practice hatred of White people. We were taught to work hard, be honest, and do unto others as you would have them do unto you. JuneTeenth commemorates the strength of my family. Happy JuneTeenth! Click this link and enjoy my 2012 JuneTeenth Show.
