    Well then therein lies another problem with liberals like you, you simply cannot admit you are wrong. Executive order did not outlaw slavery it freed selective slaves. The 13th Amendment outlawed slavery

    Asked and answered already. It's part and parcel of what she does, how she lives. And ANY publicity is good publicity in her field, no publicity isthe end of her career. Not the same stigma with lesbians as there is with male homosexuality, especially when they're not ugly.

    So since there were slaves after the Emancipation Proclamation it obviously wasn't outlawed. Proclaiming something doesn't make anything illegal, law does.

    The thirteenth amendment, abolishing slavery, was passed by the Senate in April 1864, and by the House of Representatives in January 1865.[108] The amendment did not take effect until it was ratified by three fourths of the states, which occurred on December 6, 1865, when Georgia ratified it. On that date, all remaining slaves became officially free

    It's an assumption on your part and you are basically calling her a liar. Frankly, that reflects poorly on you. I thought you were more reasonable than that. You can't make such claims and state them as fact, being emphatic is not enough to substantiate it.

    If she's saying publicity didn't have anything to do with her announcement - she is a liar. And if you're believing her, that reflects poorly upon you. It's her job, all part and parcel of the life she lives in the spotlight. Empathy has nothing to do with it. She's an actress, actresses live on publicity. Really, are you seriously saying you don't know this?

    No, freeing some slaves doesn't free them all nor does it mean more can't be made in the future. Phillidelphia freed any slave that entered their purview long before the EP or the 13th, didn't mean slavery was over. Took the 13th to do that.
