President going to give a speech in Tulsa commemorating the Race Massacre in 1921.

What political tricks will he use ?

What Legislation will be proposed and/or suggested by Biden and other Leaders ?

Tulsa race massacre



The Tulsa race massacre took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when mobs of White residents, many of them deputized and given weapons by city officials, attacked Black residents and burned businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma, US.[10] Alternatively known as the Black Wall Street massacre[11] or the Tulsa race riot,[12] it marks one of "the single worst incident(s) of racial violence in American history".[13] 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".[14]

All I can say is I can't for the life of me understand or comprehend what happened 100 years ago. Its sorrowful and a huge stain on our history. White folks acting like friggin' animals!

Nevermind a 100 years ago, I feel the same way about the events of last year! Hell...more like the last two decades to be honest.

Those college campuses turned out some of the worst minded individuals in a generation. Now look at the mess we're in..🤮

How have I never heard of this until this year? I am a well informed person and think they are dredging this up to just create further division and push a racist agenda through

This was never a mainstream thing. I am not saying if you drag the internet you can't find it. You can fid everything on the net. My point was this was never a mainstream thing that people observed the anniversary every year. Hell we had a black president that didn't even talk about this. There is an agenda behind this being brought up now and that agenda is further division and a racist agenda by the progressives.

I had heard of it and I haven't been within 3000 miles of the USA since 1998.

The MSM shy away from this kind of story because it scares its advertisers but, like all history. it's not secret.

It's not being dredged up to create division. It's a painful part of your history, important enough to need recognising and commemorating.

If you don't like it look away.

Can I ask this? How long must America have to pay for its past ? Look we had slaves, as did most other societies throughout history. The difference is we were the first western nation to go against the grain and say it was wrong and change it. It is funny to hear Biden and the dems feign disgust at white supremacy( and white supremacy is disgusting) when they are the party of KKK, and had their dear leader at one point be a former KKK Grand Wizard (Senator Byrd)and that guy is still a saint of the democrat party. Let me tell you what, the democrats are still the party of racism and white supremacy they have just changed their tactics. They make the people they don't want to be around call for the segregation, look how many black people call for spaces where only blacks can go and no whites are allowed, last I checked that was called segregation and the dems were for it then and are for it now.

It gained more mainstream recognition after it was featured in HBO's Watchmen. That doesn't mean it wasn't talked about before that.

You may want to recheck your history. The US was actually one of the last Western nations to abolish slavery.

France abolished slavery in 1794. Britain in 1807. Spain in 1811. Mexico in 1829.

Face it. The US was behind the times.

Since VP Kamala Harris did such a good job of ignoring Illegal Alien/Migrant issues, Joe Biden has made her the CZAR of Voting Rights.

“With her leadership and your support, we're going to overcome again, I promise you, but it's going to take a hell of a lot of work,” Biden said.

"We're going to overcome once again..."????

What's Joe taking about?
