Black Wall Street and the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921, Explained is from Teen Vogue.
After an estimated hundreds of black Tulsa residents were massacred in 1921, no arrests were made and there’s never been a complete count of the dead.

President Trump has said his plan for race relations is a good economy. But here in Tulsa, black folks disagree:
“You had wealthy folks in Tulsa at the time…So their wealth did not protect them from racism. Nor would anyone’s wealth today.” https://t.co/eGgDYAjWji

With @SandyDarity I wrote about how these erased massacres were attempts to rob Black people of wealth and income and criminalize them for daring to be full members of the economy. Eliane, Arkansas in 1919 is one example. https://t.co/ZMdbWdbWdr

100 yrs after Tulsa Massacre
“If you stick a knife 9 inches in & take it out 6—that’s not progress. If you take it all out that’s not progress. Progress is healing the wound. They havent even begun to take it out. They wont even admit the knife is there.”pic.twitter.com/46b3MfzlZ4

The Tulsa Massacre was 100 yrs ago but racists use the same 3 strategies
– Propagate a “Big Lie” to stir up white rage & white hate.
– Abuse administrative powers to inflict harm & legalize injustice.
– Create a false revisionist narrative of history.https://t.co/R9bfIY9hvh
