'Black Wall Street' Before, During and After the Tulsa Race Massacre: may 1921 USA
 
ja, ik weet helaas niet alles maar dit wist ik al jaren geleden en het zal zich herhalen. Geschiedenis, genocides, Holocaust, rassen oorlogen zijn cyclische dingen en nu pas besef ik dat het 100 % Natuurlijk gedrag moet zijn van onze mensapensoort, omdat dit bij alle primaten, zoogdieren en aapsoorten voorkomt. OORLOGEN zijn natuurlijke processen en helaas NOODZAKELIJk.

At the turn of the 20th century, African Americans founded and developed the Greenwood district in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Built on what had formerly been Indian Territory, the community grew and flourished as a Black economic and cultural mecca—until May 31, 1921.

That's when a white mob began a rampage through some 35 square blocks, decimating the community known proudly as "Black Wall Street." Armed rioters, many deputized by local police, looted and burned down businesses, homes, schools, churches, a hospital, hotel, public library, newspaper offices and more. While the official death toll of the Tulsa race massacre was 36, historians estimate it may have been as high as 300. As many as 10,000 people were left homeless.

The incident stands as one most horrific acts of racial violence, and domestic terrorism, ever committed on American soil.

In May 2021, 100 years after the massacre, 107-year-old Viola Fletcher testified before Congress: “On May 31, of ‘21, I went to bed in my family’s home in Greenwood," she recounted. “The neighborhood I fell asleep in that night was rich, not just in terms of wealth, but in culture…and heritage. My family had a beautiful home. We had great neighbors. I had friends to play with. I felt safe. I had everything a child could need. I had a bright future.”

Then, she said, came the murderous rampage, still vivid in her mind 100 years later: “I still see Black men being shot, Black bodies lying in the street. I still smell smoke and see fire. I still see Black businesses being burned. I still hear airplanes flying overhead. I hear the screams."
