The Tulsa Race Massacre: Where Are the Reparations?
"Week was one hundred years right. Since the tulsa race massacre occurred this is when a mob of white people with support from local politicians and the police killed an estimated. Three hundred black americans burned down over one thousand two and fifty homes destroyed businesses. And all of this in the greenwood district of tulsa oklahoma. Which by the way was known as black wall street because it was so thriving so dynamic so filled with life and economic potential. Well okay no surprise. None of the white attackers were ever convicted for this crime which happened after a false report of a black teenager attacking a white girl. The girl later dropped the charges but white local media ran a racist article with an inflammatory headline which essentially incited the mob attack. So okay the role of media and journalism historically in this country. Let's take a look at that. Also white media. There helped cover up what happened in this. Like incredible part of the united states in the greenwood district barely any mentioned in the newspapers in textbooks government officials locals so finally one hundred years later. There is a reckoning happening in mainstream establishments. I have a question whether or not if george floyd had not been murdered.

Anyway it's kinda cool that tolson's got me live right now while i'm talking about this topic. Because it's it's the big deal the tulsa race riot or the tulsa race massacre of however. You wanna talk about it. It's being used to push a political agenda. And i wanna talk in a couple of ways about it and i need you to understand something out of the gate. There is a conservative impulse just as there is a progressive impulse that when the other side is saying x. y. or z. Our side than says the negative the opposite the counter so One side says the tulsa race riot or tolson race massacres a very big deal. So the it's actually. It's not everyone wants to be contrary to the other side. As a matter of fact it was a very big freaking deal on may thirty first and june first nineteen twenty one white citizens in tulsa oklahoma engage in the systematic destruction not systemic systematic destruction of the greenwood district in tulsa oklahoma which was essentially the black wall street has many described one of the most prosperous black communities in the nation Precipitated of it was the sexual assault on a seventeen year. Old white girl. In the deaths of ten white men led the white citizens and the local government to round up lack citizens in detain. Most of them really for their protection as the riots got out of control and but then they simply leveled the greenwood district. It was notable because it was the first time domestically aircraft were used to rain down fire on positions. It was civilians. American citizens civilians with biplanes. That were firing down upon the black residents is a friend of mine said a few weeks later the military would use airplanes to quello riot. But this was the first time it happened. It was not military it was citizens it was bad and then there was an engaged government. Cover up and it turns out probably. Hundreds of people died now in the nineteen nineties. A bipartisan commission and oklahoma was formed frank keating the governor to oklahoma oversaw. This was a republican and by two thousand one. They had an airing of grievances. They pushed for a number of steps scholarships and other things to make right. What had happened. Some people what more some people have agitated for reparations but it really was a revelation. A lot of people had not heard about it nationally. Now it was bad and we should know about it but a lot of the people. Who want you to know about it at this moment. Want you to know about it as proof of systemic racism. The number of people. You haven't heard about this have you. Whitey covered it up. Well yeah in tulsa oklahoma. The white government did try to bury it for a while and it was overtime reveal. But they're not talking about that they're talking about a conspiracy of the white history textbook. Writers to keep you from hearing about what happened in tulsa oklahoma the number of white people. I know who wanna feel guilty about their race. These days we covered up tulsa oklahoma where we repent. This isn't the way works. This is very much like cunanan. The difference is that the media believes this conspiracy theory so refused to take it seriously. Here's what actually happens. The reason the tolls the oklahoma situation is it talked about is one. It is also cla homa no offence to those in tulsa. I would love to come hang out with you. I've never been there. I wanna go see the pioneer woman.

And i'm gonna need this. Because i finished the first second season of the boys. Finally okay so now speak openly. 'cause i've been finished it. I know you did okay. First of all benz just said just in general. He just the half of part that he did he just thought it was trashed a no. No okay okay. let me be clear. The half the half of the said nine eight so you almost have the whole season and feeling. Let's say that now never edge. Nice rash not good actually. Okay very entertaining. That's the same saints very entertaining very well done on what is doing but that is my problem with it like all right. I'll ask you some questions right. Now you know are non spoiler. I mean not really spoiler the spoil if you have. I mean it's like three weeks later like it's fine. What do you know about mother's milk. Absolutely fucking nothing. Besides his real name they this as real name. But i forget how many times i say like once and it was I think it was a catholic but the point is they say is real name and that's about fucking it. All i know is still that. He is the angry black man from the nineties. Tm what you know about the female other than other than that. She has the that that that said You know prisoner of war story with her brother and her brother gets caught up and then she's just they're not that much beside the fact that they still calling her the female granted. We don't know her real name. But still how much screen time did they give to the deep too much fucking screen time because the deep could have been oft in episode one of season two in the first three minutes and it wouldn't have made a difference when you really look at it and once again i enjoyed deepest deepest one of my favorite characters like i love every time he's on spring. But this is what. I'm talking about this show right. It is making heroes out of the wrong people. It is so wrongheaded. It is so like wait. Manish is the only word i can think of.

I think is very entertaining. It's not in the same way. But it's like power where power is to me this mess of a black soap opera. I worship at the feet of power because it keeps me so entertaining week after week. It's just such a dynamic show and so great but it's also a hot mess but this is a different type of hot minister. This is a hot mess. That is like thinks it's absolutely saying something and that's.
Human remains found at site linked to Tulsa Race Massacre
"It was 1921 when mobs of white residents attacked black residents and businesses off the Greenwood district in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Many people were killed and more than 800 wounded. 35 square blocks of the wealthy blind community were destroyed. Now archaeologists in Oklahoma have found at least one set of human remains at the site where they've been searching for victims. Scientists say they'll be looking for signs of trauma things like burning or gunshot wounds before making any determination about whether this person died in the Tulsa race massacre. Archaeologists say they found the remains inside a wooden confident we're told More remains from a possible second person were found in a separate area. It was a year ago in October, when the Oklahoma Archaeological Survey team started its initial groundwork here at Oaklawn Cemetery. We asked Dr Carey Stack Lebec, the state archaeologist, about the moment human remains were discovered. We knew very quickly and could react very quickly and get in there and start doing the more finer scale excavation work by hand. That's Amy slang, chick reporting

S. so famously over the years but none became so closely associated with it as Bob Hope a nationally a lot of hopes work entertaining US servicemen had happened on the radio at that point he had become a star as a radio personality but he yeah he only started his film career in nineteen thirty nine the main gig that he had going on was the very popular the Pepsodent show starring Bob Hope which had started running in nineteen thirty eight and his first performance for an all military audience happened when he took that radio show at the urging of his producer to March Air Force base that is now known as March air reserve base in riverside county California to record a live show and he opened with a joke that would probably not play today which was as soon as I got into camp I received a ten gun salute they told me on the operating table there is footage of him delivering that joke in the exhibit yes it's well on its no shade to Holly's comedy timing not Bob Hope I hate to break it to you I do different comedy yeah it's one of those things I wonder if the same joke would play as well today yeah when the whole topic is a little bit more frauds much different yeah but yeah have you can see him say it in that exhibit do it this show took place in a gymnasium a gymnasiums still exists today and is now called March field sports and fitness center and that facility had a plaque added to its exterior in nineteen ninety eight to commemorate the start of hopes ongoing work with the tree what happens there and the plaque reads on may sixth nineteen forty one Bob who brought his NBC radio show to the March field gem and broadcasts as national network show from this site it marks the first time Mister hope had ever performed for military personnel this landmark broadcast was the forerunner to the legendary you SO shares that have entertained American troops around the world since nineteen forty three and he also started appearing on a radio variety show called command performance on July seventh of nineteen forty two that was produced by armed forces radio exclusively for broadcast to bases and he was also the president show was also being broadcast to the troops but hope love hosting command performance because he could be a little more daring and get away with a little bit more blue humor than you could with NBC so it's kind of a freeing experience in some ways the military RD audiences like the network audience very aims that same summer we had a conversation with a friend and former colleague who had become an army sergeant about the troops and the sergeant suggested that hope should visit soldiers who were stationed in Alaska he went with for this idea he started planning the trip almost immediately and the plan was for Bob and then fellow Pepsodent show radio personalities Frank Francis Lankford and Jerry Colonna and guitarist Tony Romano to all make this trip together and ask this for some September departure from San Francisco approach they actually got news that inclement weather suggested it would really be better if they can't song and their schedule was really super tight because Bob Hope of course was already popular entertainer and he had other bookings that he had to do like for his radio show to keep it going and there was absolutely no way that they can promise him that yes you will be back in time and keep this thing on schedule but hope did not care he telegram the base saying that they were all packed and ready and he concluded his missive with please let us make our trip and we'll take our chances and they were soon on right on route to Fairbanks Alaska from there hoping the team went to nome univac island and you can't hear Tories troops always didn't always have advance notice that celebrities were coming and even if the tour schedule had been announced there would've been some surprises the comedians and musicians would sometimes do impromptu shows for much smaller groups of soldiers one night I ran into them during their travels from one location to another this was definitely not glamorous they it was freezing travel could be really dicey in some cases dangerous and they did not have any kind of luxurious accommodations now this is one of those moments where I was doing the research and and reading about this and I just feel like my respect kind of went off the charts for all of them because they really put up with stuff that I think most of Abertis today would scoff at just in terms of dealing with really gross unpleasant moments but there was also a street he said a lot of danger so on a flight from Cordova to encourage their plane lost first it's radio and then one of its engines it was only lucky enough to make their landing very hard because when Elmendorf Air Force base crew found out what was happening that this plane who had lost communication they broke protocol and they turned on their search lights and they were not supposed to do that but that gave the pilots a visual to guide them in and Bob was very aware of how close we came to this Astor he described later when he wrote about it that he looked at Francis and remembered that he had promised her husband that she would be okay and that he had begged him to let her go and he thought I've just walked her to her death but later on he gave inscribed watches each of those pilots see I'm getting choked up that red bags from my life which was something those pilots leader reiterated that they went on the long careers that was still the scariest flight of their lives oh man you can tell me that part well I saved it for now despite all the odds in a series of bad weather issues hope was able to get to Seattle and do his scheduled radio broadcast from there before turning right around and going back to the Alaskans work and once the trip concluded despite of all.

"One ends in nineteen. Eighteen American servicemen returning from the war flocked Tulsa. Because there's a bunch of work in a bunch of money there because of the oil but many of these white veterans are not happy that they have to compete for jobs with educated black citizens so this is also the same time black. American veterans are coming back to America. And they're trying to assert their equal rights saying that he's got fuck. Our country just fought and watch their fellow soldiers. Die Out of the country they come back to. They have no fucking they have no rights. They can't vote. They can't go to the bathroom in a regular restaurant like it's it's so restrictive and ridiculous and they're just like this Bolshaya as it is and then the kind of like the third or one of the elements. That's the topper which I mentioned in my story. Last week about the Death Mary Fagan the murder of Mary Fagan in the murder of Leo Frank. It's around this time. The KKK starts to have a resurgence tat. Yup So tensions are high in in the south. Yeah and everywhere in one thousand nine hundred twenty. A white eighteen year old Boy Named Roy. Belton is accused of murdering a local Tulsa. Taxi driver and before his guilt is even confirmed. A group of armed men stormed the jail take Belton and Lynch him hauling shut. Yeah he was white or black white So many Tulsen's blame the police for not protecting belton other support this lynching as this vigilante act that's righteous but this event makes the Black Citizens. Tulsa fear for their lives because of that can happen to a white boy. They know that they are definitely not safe though. So we're now we're back to nineteen twenty one with the elevator incident the morning after which is Tuesday may thirty first nineteen twenty one. The police find nineteen year old Dick role and at his mom's House on Greenwood Avenue. And they take him to the Tulsa jail at first and Main Street for questioning. Dick Explains to police it. Although he did put his hand on Sarah he was not trying to hurt her that afternoon around three. Pm WITH DICK in custody. The white own newspaper that Tulsa Tribune Princess Story About Dick's arrest with the headline quote. Nab Negro for attacking girl in an elevator. The rest of the article support this biased headline and makes declan guilty of an attempted assault. Yeah Okay so the same paper. Also publishes an editorial piece. It's like they had these ready to go. And they published an editorial piece with the headline quote to Lynch Negro Tonight essentially calling for more vigilante justice so obviously this newspaper is putting Dick. Rowland's life in or intentions like a call to action certainly is so after the paper releases those articles Police Commissioner J M Atkinson gets an anonymous phone call threatening to kill Dick Rowland so that coupled with the fact that the police are still shaking off the criticism that they properly protect Belton. Commissioner Atkinson Moves Dick. Roll into the more secure jail on the top floor of the Tulsa County courthouse but rumors of potential lynching. And the calling for a Goddamn Lynch rumor draws more and more people to the courthouse and by seven thirty that night hundreds of angry white. Tulsen's are gathered outside the courthouse demanding to be shown. Dick Rowland House dear. It's called the mob. It's an angry terrorist mob. So Sheriff Willard. Mccullough sent six of his officers to the roof of the courthouse with rifles. He disables the courthouse elevator and he positions more officers on the top floor with directions not to open the door for anyone around eight twenty three white men from the angry mob somehow quote unquote and get inside the courthouse. The sheriff immediately gets them out. any then addresses the crowd telling them there isn't going to be a lynching they all need to leave now. It's it's questionable. Whether or not he made a real effort here yeah because despite his quote unquote orders. The crowd continues to build and by nine o'clock that night there are four hundred angry white. Tulsen's outside of the courthouse with rumors of a potential lynching swirling around the town. The people of the Greenwood district gather on Greenwood Avenue to come up with a plan because they know Dick role and is basically a dead man. He's innocent and they're going to kill him terribly. They don't know what their strategy should be. Though the World War One vets want to collect up guns and and protect prepare for potential battle businessmen. Want to be as peaceful as possible. Because they don't want anything that would threaten their hard earned properties and businesses about twenty to fifty of the manager of the Greenwood district decide to go to the courthouse as a group. Some of them armed and offer their services to the sheriff to help protect Dick. Roll out there right. I was thinking about that whereas like it's not the best idea but you'd have to go armed our going. Is this tiny group of black men. You can't take sure it's understandable with you. It's just like you know where this is going. But is the only option is to let them kill an innocent nineteen year old and also I think these were very empowered intelligent people who are just kind of like it ain't GonNa be this way anymore like let's not. Yeah when they arrived. The sheriff is like no thanks. Get out we got your help. You're making it worse. They go back to the Greenwood district but the angry white men who'd been standing outside the courthouse were surprised by this group of Greenwood district Men and they were enraged. They would appear there so a bunch of them leave the courthouse. A bunch of the angry white mob leave the courthouse. Go home to get their own guns and a group of several hundred decide to try to get more weapons by robbing the National Guard. Oh no yacht so mayor James Bell Who was of the National Guard? One hundred eightieth infantry regimen. He knew what was happening downtown at the courthouse. He was prepared. He had his guards prepped and ready to shoot any intruders on sight and so basically they come up to the national guard armory. Yeah go me like we're taking guns and we're GonNa go and they were all just like Whoa kill you. You keep coming so they just walked away okay. Great rate so they give up there and go back to the court house so now the crowd of the courthouses swelled to nearly two thousand angry white and most of whom are now armed. By word of the growing armed mob gets back to the Greenwood district and some of the men in green would decide that this is their last chance to save Dick. Rowland from being lynched. This time seventy five black men from the Greenwood district now. Most of them armed Arrive at the courthouse just after ten pm again. They offer their services to the sheriff again. He Says No. But but now that the white mobs armed they're feeling boulder one of them reportedly appl- approaches one of these One of the black men from Greenwood the Greenwood Group and demands. He give up his pistol. The man with the Black Man refuses a shot is fired so no one knows for sure who fired that shot and whether or not it was an accident if it was just like every you know emotions were running high of was meant to scare both groups off. No one knows what happened. But ultimately that doesn't matter because it starts a shootout that leaves twelve people some black and some white dead drastically outnumber so the Group of black men retreat back to the Greenwood district but this time the white men follow looting stores along the way for more weapons and AMMO. So now it's on. Yeah the gunfight continues along the Frisco train tracks which separate the Greenwood district from the neighbouring white districts. Some of the white mob drive into Greenwood proper and start shooting at people and businesses. Dry Vice style so they just start and some of these people didn't know what was going on so there's that was part of the watchman thing is so amazing. Is People coming out of a movie theater there? They went into movie theaters. Were those people had no idea and then just murdering everybody in a movie theater. So they're just picking people off on the street. In some cases business owners trying to protect themselves returned fire. Meanwhile the National Guard come up with a way to stop the chaos. But it's not a great plan. They station guards at the courthouse. But then they Station Protective Guards only around the white neighborhoods. they send other guards to round up black people whether they're participating in violence or not and detain them at the Convention Hall on Brady Street so immediately. It's protect white people and arrest black. The fighting continues through the early morning hours of Wednesday June first nineteen twenty one around one. Am The white mob against a setting black businesses along Archer Street. On fire some reporters say that Tulsa Fire Department tried to put the fires out but the white mob threatened to shoot them if they did some other reports suggest that the fire department was citing with The white mob and deliberately didn't put the fires out right the fires rage and by four. I am roughly two dozen black. Owned businesses are burning on my God. Okay so this is where but Colbert. I'm pronouncing it. Colbert like Stephen Colbert or could be Colbert. But Buck Colbert Franklin. This is from his ten page document where he wrote it right after he saw A. Hey and this you can also read this and Smithsonian magazine. He wrote quote. I could see planes circling in mid air. They grew in number and homed darted and dipped low. I could hear something like hail falling upon the top of my office building down East Archer. I saw the old midway hotel on fire burning from its top and then another and another and another building began to burn from their top. The sidewalks were literally covered with burning turpentine balls. I knew all too well where they came from and I knew all too well why every burning building I caught. I caught from the top. I paused and waited for an opportune time to escape. Where aware as our splendid fire department with its half dozen stations? I asked myself is the city in conspiracy with the mob. So people were flying overhead of the Greenwood district and throwing turpin flying burning turpentine balls down onto the building. So they'd all catch on fire and so it was like a complete it was onslaught yes. A blitz completely overpowered by the mob. A many many Greenwood district residents flee the city troops from another Oklahoma National Guard station. Arrive on the scene around nine fifteen. Am On June first as backup at this point. Roughly four thousand black people have been detained by the local National Guard. Four thousand the National Guard Declares Martial Law around eleven fifty am and tried to regain order between twelve and one PM. The violence finally stops but the fires raged on for two full days. The rounding up and detention of black citizens in the city continues throughout when martial law finally withdrawn on Friday fourth nineteen twenty one. They're still about six thousand black people. Being held in detention. Some are held for as long as eight days. Wow when all of a sudden done more than thirty five blocks in the Greenwood district or destroyed thirty five blocks one hundred ninety one businesses twelve hundred homes churches and schools are burned to the ground. An estimated ten thousand black citizens are left homeless. It's hard to say exactly how many people died because many media outlets time would change their counts and release conflicting information that the estimates today range anywhere from fifty five people to three hundred..
