Remembrance of horrific 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre
30 May @ 8:00am - 31 May @ 5:00pm EDT
Remember the NRA’s rhetoric about the “only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun”?.
The 1921 Tulsa race massacre, against a wealthy, Black-owned, Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was created, supported and funded and supported by white supremacists, including law enforcement and NRA members, who denied guns and ammo to Black Americans, to keep them defenseless against violent white supremacy.
The spark of Tulsa Jim Crow benefactor ignorance began on May 30, 1921, and began with a lie about Sarah Page being assaulted by a working black male, Dick Rowland, who was relegated to a “Blacks only” bathroom, blocks away from his job, a bathroom which could only be accessed via an elevator ride to 4th floor of building. The ensuing riot lasted two-days. A Jim Crow benefactor white male attempted to TAKE AWAY GUN FROM AN ARMED BLACK MAN, LAWFULLY DEFENDING GREENWOOD FAMILIES, while white law enforcement deputized Jim Crow-lynchers to terrorize as they wished, with blessings from the Ku Klux Klan and NRA leaders. Jim Crow benefactors believed that black families of Greenwood needed to be taught a lesson, a lesson based upon Jim Crow benefactor ignorance.
All, that wealthy Black Americans in the Greenwood District worked for, was destroyed by savages, who made up a lie and excuse to riot, destroy property and businesses. Greenwood District residents’ lands and homes were also stolen by the rioters, forcing many residents out of the city, to seek shelter elsewhere in Jim Crow America.
And to make matters worse, Black Americans in Greenwood District were rounded up, at gunpoint, like cattle, like criminals, for DEFENDING THEIR HOMES FROM A JIM CROW BENEFACTOR RIOTOUS MOB. 🤬 Again, NRA’s rhetoric: only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.
The end result: white supremacists applauded their evil actions and violence, all based upon the lies of inferior intellect persons. Sound Capitol Siege familiar? It should, because the same inferior intellect mentality was involved in the January 6, 2021 violent insurrection on our nation’s Capitol.
Remember this horrific event. Speak about it, educate children, and drown out the redundant, inferior intellect noise from white supremacists on these days especially.
Do something in honor of the Greenwood residents, who are a constant reminder of what we can do, without a foot on or rope around our necks. Greenwood residents owned their own homes, businesses, educational institutions, banks, oil fields, media and more, the same as Black residents of the Five Points section of New York, whose properties and businesses were also destroyed by white supremacy. There was a sense of honor, decency and always striving for better, within the Greenwood district, while their attackers just waited and watched with evil and contempt, while plotting against the residents daily.
Generations of white supremacy later, their Tulsa neighborhood become impoverished, and later riddled with crime and hopelessness, all while being restricted by white supremacists and “monitored” by law enforcement, to ironically, keep the black Tulsa residents “in line”. The same crime in Tulsa, is the same crime that NRA employees and white supremacist members use to promote their fear-based ads, to sell more guns and ammunition to inferior intellect persons, who then sit and await a mythical “boogeyman”, all while standing with and for actual white supremacist, domestic terrorists, who cannot wait to do the same again.
