Such tolerant people.
Beginning May 31, 1921, thousands of armed white Tulsans invaded the Black section of the booming oil town, terrorizing its residents, looting their homes and businesses, and burning to the ground some 35 square blocks of the city. Before the rampage was over, more than 10,000 Black people were left homeless and more than 6,000 were interned in camps where they'd stay, in some cases, for months.
and an all-white unit of the National Guard joined the white invaders. Other public officials provided guns and ammo to white men. The KKK got involved. A semi-functioning machine gun was used on Black Tulsans. Airplanes dropped "turpentine balls," destroying more buildings.
Your ignorant ass has no idea where the event is or where the greenwood district is.
But that didn't stop you from running your yapper about the bok center being "wiped off the map".
holding a rally at a place that was literally wiped of the map
Intolerant people like you are the issue.
Who gets to hold events?
Only people with your 2 bit ideology?

I'm expecting something bad to happen.
This country is literally a powder keg waiting to go off.
Maybe a white supremacist president holding a rally at a place that was literally wiped of the map nearly 100 years ago by racists a day after it was remembered isn't such a good idea???
The Tulsa race massacre (also called the Tulsa race riot, the Greenwood Massacre, or the Black Wall Street Massacre) took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when mobs of white residents attacked black residents and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It has been called "the single worst incident of racial violence in American history." The attack, carried out on the ground and from private aircraft, destroyed more than 35 square blocks of the district—at that time the wealthiest black community in the United States, known as "Black Wall Street".
The massacre began over Memorial Day weekend after 19-year-old Dick Rowland, a black shoeshiner, was accused of assaulting Sarah Page, the 17-year-old white elevator operator of the nearby Drexel Building.
