Who I was in my first marriage that didn't work for me and my ex husband there is nothing wrong with the way he did things there was nothing wrong with the way. I. Did things it just didn't work together. What I wanted and what he wanted or not the same thing. So that means when I'm in a relationship today with someone. I have to be willing to see the facts and the truth in ass myself. Is this what I want in. This is what I want except in if it's not and the answer is super clear like you said before we always know like your quiet you always know the needed to decide what you want to do with that. And this works for every single relationship in my life not just relationship with my partner, right? At people as I can love them as is, or it can say, this is toxic I don't have to have a relationship with people because I'm an adult.

Once again, just as a reminder is to guide people back to their higher power through the steps you only advice I give is if someone harming another person, right? Suppose we fall short of the chosen ideal is what we wrote down and stumble does this mean we are going to get drunk some people tell so but this is only a half truth it depends on us and our motives if we are sorry for what we have done and have the honest desire to let God take us to better. We believe we will be forgiven and while learned our lesson. I underline this next person read if we're not sorry and our conduct continues to harm others, we're quite sure to drink and probably die rate. We are not theorizing these facts out of our experience. So this basically means if nothing changes nothing changes..

"He instinctively reached out and grabbed the first thing. He could which happened to be the arm of the seventeen year old elevator operator, Sarah Page, her arm, not abreast not our ass, not her pussy, her arm. Startled she screamed and then a white clerk in a first floor store who didn't see shit call the police to report seen role and flee from the elevator, and then the white alarmist and obviously super racist clerk on the first floor reported the incident as an attempted assault. Sarah Page never filed anything. She never claimed addicted Shitter Sarah filed no charges against it because nothing happened but the following. Day the Tulsa police arrested the completely innocent. Roland cannot stress enough. He didn't do anything and they began an investigation and then an inflammatory report in the May thirty first edition of the Tulsa Tribune spurred a confrontation between black and white arm mops around the courthouse where the sheriff and his men had barricaded the top floor to protect Roland. Nice be sure and protect him after unjustly arresting him. Interesting. Shots were fired and then outnumbered African Americans began retreating to the Greenwood district the most prosperous African neighborhood excuse me african-american neighborhood in all of America that time the Black Wall Street, it was known as Greenwood in eighteen ninety eight had the fifty five room Stratford luxury hotel built the largest black owned hotel in the country. It had the Tulsa Star a black newspaper a newspaper that regularly informed african-americans about their legal rights core rulings legislation that was banished beneficial or harmful to their community. Greenwood had luxury shops, restaurants, grocery stores, jewelry, and Clothing Stores Movie, theaters, Barber shops salons. Saloons Library, pool halls, nightclubs for Doctors Lawyers Dentists, Greenwood resident, and business developer W girly quite possibly the richest African American men in the nation at the time worth around twenty million in today's dollars. In the early morning of June first nineteen twenty, one, this gem of a neighborhood. This shining example of how black Americans could prosper in post world want America was looted and burned the fucking ground by white riders. Listen one hundred years ago. America's black community has fucking heart punched out of its collective chest and stopped on I cannot imagine how incredibly demoralizing this must have been to the hopes and dreams of every single black citizens, America. More injustice added to America's dark legacy of racial intolerance. The white mob deliberately burned or otherwise destroyed homes credibly estimated to have numbered over twelve hundred and fifty along with virtually every other structure including churches, schools, businesses, even a hospital, even the fucking library. Oklahoma Governor James B A Robertson declared martial law national guard. Troops arrived in Tulsa the guardsmen assisted firemen and putting out fires took African Americans out of the hands of vigilantes and that's awesome. But they also imprisoned virtually all black Tulsen's now already imprisoned over six thousand people held at the convention. Hall and the fairgrounds some for as long as eight days and that's not awesome. They said, they did this for their own safety you know would have been safer Jalen, their white attackers, but that didn't happen. Twenty four hours after the violence erupted, it ceased in the wake of the violence thirty, five city blocks lay in charred ruins over eight hundred people treated for injuries in contemporary reports of deaths begin at thirty six but historians now believe probably more likely around three hundred died. And not one of these criminal acts was prosecuted or punished by the government at any level municipal county state or. Not One motherfucker went to jail for destroying the finest black neighborhood in America. Can you imagine how much resentment and mistrust and lingering anger and rage and hurt this one right created for Black Americans? Imagine if someone destroy your neighborhood, burnt it to the ground less than sixty years after the end of slavery after decades of incredibly harsh discrimination and lynchings, your community finally builds up one neighborhood one in the something to be really proud of a that is flourishing a community that could have if not for the riots turned into something monumental in its destroyed. Seeing the pattern here, the legacy of destruction we didn't Cherry pick these rights and exclude others to force a false narrative that American rights have hurt black communities more than any other. That's just the Goddamn truth. Rides have consistently hurt the black community more than they've hurt anyone else in America time and time again. Now. Let's jump to the sixties the watts riots, watts like Inglewood and Compton another south central Los Angeles. Predominantly. Black community less than ten miles east Inglewood about three miles north of Compton. Couldn't find racial demographic information for Watson Nineteen, sixty, five But in nineteen sixty, five US Census Bureau report did describe the entire south central area of La to be predominantly African American. Today. The neighborhood is almost sixty two percents panic just over thirty seven percent black and half a percent white. According to another source of nineteen, sixty, five watts was predominantly low income community with a large African. American. Population many of whom who felt that in addition to high unemployment poverty and racial discrimination. They were also a regular recipients of brutal treatment at the hands and clubs sometimes guns of the. LAPD. This right this watts riot is a riot that would lead directly to the nineteen ninety two La Rights is the first massive American race riot truly focus specifically on a perception of police brutality. Important understand this right to understand the roots of many of twenty twenty s race rights focusing on acts of police brutality. On August Eleventh Nineteen Sixty Five Marquette Frye a twenty one year old black motorist was pulled over and arrested by officer Lee W. meniscus. Beliefs I say his name Mikus. Elsa NECAS MINAKA's this White California highway.

He said I told him he was under arrest. He was real nice about it. He was joking around putting on a show for the crowd that started together. I was even laughing. What followed is still subject to debate but most accounts reflected RENA FRY started screaming at her son angry with him for driving drunk and that fry then spurred on by his mom's anger began to resist arrest, and then in the melee that followed somebody shoved his mom officer Minaka's later recalled when he tried to arrest fry, he jumped back verbally snap at the officer for the first time.

What Was the Tulsa Race Massacre?
"In Tulsa Oklahoma, a group of scientists and historians is on the verge of unearthing chunk of the city's past that has long been buried and one. Some people may prefer to keep that way. It's a potential mass grave from worst single incident of interracial violence in American history. Beginning may thirty first in nineteen twenty one thousands of armed white. Tulsen's invaded black section of the booming oil town, terrorizing its residence looting, their homes and businesses and burning to the ground, some thirty five square blocks of the city. Before the rampage was over more than ten thousand black people were left homeless, and more than six thousand were turned in camps where they'd stay in some cases for months. We spoke with Scott, Ellsworth, a native Tulsa and a professor of African American history at the University of Michigan. Ellsworth is the author of the Nineteen Eighty two book death in a Promised Land, one of the first books to take a comprehensive historical look at the Tulsa race massacre previously mystically called the Tulsa race riot of nineteen twenty one. He said to this day. We don't know how many died. Reasonable estimates range from I would say forty to his high as three hundred. When the unmarked suspected mass grave and a Tulsa cemetery is excavated in July of two thousand twenty. It may provide a few answers to exactly what happened over those two days and nineteen twenty one. It will be for many a literal. Reopening of a wound festered within the city for nearly a century. The Tulsa massacre of nineteen twenty one did not a word often used to describe such events erupt. The city simply reached. What now seems an inevitable breaking point? In early nineteen, twenty one tulsa was awash cash from the oil boom. The good fortune reached into the north section of the city, mostly populated by black Americans. That later to be known as the Black Wall Street contained one hundred ninety one businesses, including hotels feed store, a roller rink cleaners, mom and pop stores and restaurants plus offices for doctors, dentists and lawyers. The area had at least five churches to a library movie theater and a hospital. Like the rest of the city at that time, the black area also known as Greenwood had its problems alcohol, even under prohibition was readily available. Illegal drugs were easy to find to. As we're gambling and prostitution the whole city, not just greenwood struggled with crime end with lawless punishment less than a year before a white teenager, accused of murder, was taken from jail cell and lynched by a white mob. The police did little to protect him. And Racial Violence against black people was commonplace, even though thousands of black Americans had just returned from fighting in World War. One Jim Crow Laws and pervasive racist attitudes meant that equality remained nothing more than a dream for black Americans and many white Americans. Wanted to keep it that way. Ellsworth route and in two thousand one report commissioned by the State of Oklahoma on then called riot that quote during the weeks and months leading up to the riot, there were more than a few white Tulsen's who only feared. The color line was in danger of being slowly erased a believed that this was already happening. So into that explosive milieu, a black teenaged boy, working as a shoeshiner, had a brief run in with a white teenage girl operating elevator. and. The fuse was lit. The boy was taken into custody. A group of more than two thousand angry white people, some intent on lynching him, possibly prompted by an inflammatory editorial in a white run newspaper gathered on the courthouse steps some armed black war, veterans and others squared off with them there and soon shots were fired. White people from all over the city began their march on the green. What area to tamp down? What many white people saw as an uprising? Their stories of black citizens being murdered in their homes interrupted in their evening prayers. The terror went on for eighteen hours into June first. Despite their sworn duty to serve and protect neither Tulsa police, nor any other government agency assisted the black population. Instead Tulsa police officers helped set some buyers, an all white unit of the National Guard joined the invaders. Other. Public officials provided guns and AMMO two white men. The KKK got involved a semi functioning machine gun was on black. Tulsen's and some reports indicate the airplanes dropped homemade fire starters. Despite being largely outnumbered black Tulsen's fought to protect their homes and businesses and most of all. Greenwood. But in the end, scores of black people and some white people were killed in. Greenwood was left in ruins. The exact numbers of injured and dead. Even after what's to be uncovered in three suspected mass graves may never be known. It's still unclear exactly what happened between the Black Shoeshine Boy Dick Rowland and the white. Elevator Goal Sarah page to spark the massacre. Though one thing is known. She refused to bring charges. Roland was vindicated. For years. Tulsa refused to acknowledge in any meaningful way. What had happened in nineteen twenty one. Nobody has ever been charged or prosecuted for the crimes that occurred during those eighteen or so hours, even those who grew up there ellsworth included were not taught that part of the city's history. The Tulsa race massacre became a terrible and closely held secret. That began to change with Ellsworth's defeated promised land, and some earlier work, then in nineteen ninety-five, when members of the national media descended on Oklahoma City after the bombing of the federal building, they were informed of this other more terrible episode of domestic terrorism in the state's history. More news accounts and more books of the massacre followed and twenty nineteen, the HBO Comic Book Superhero Series Watchmen inspired in part by Tulsa, enlightened many to the story. But pulses failed efforts to come to grips with its deadly past has left scars. Ellsworth said city was robbed of its honesty. You have entire generations growing up in Tulsa who've never heard of this your people growing up with a false reality, a false vision of the land they were on I mean imagine if today right now that you had young people growing up in Manhattan, who had never heard of nine eleven, but there were no books to talk about nine eleven that it's as if it didn't exist. The race massacre was a gigantic myth in the history of Tulsa it was deliberately buried for a long time. With the honor thing of one of at least three suspected mass graves and Tulsa next month will mark another step in the long road to understanding and perhaps one day recovery.

And if you want to be a good citizen of the United States, you need to understand private property, so each tribal citizen is going to get more or less one hundred sixty acres. With one. The Friedman receive one hundred and sixty acres of land in what is slated to become the new state of Oklahoma. The land was poor. So where did the wealth come from? It's right on top of what became the biggest oilfield pre-world world one end, so greenwood became Black Wall Street. That's where the money was right. It was a beacon in the nineteen teens. You start to see descendants of slaves, especially Texas in Mississippi, Alabama come to Tulsa. Come to Black Wall Street to make it like the American dream and we're to black schools. Thirteen churches to black movie. Theaters of Black Public Library and don't forget a roller skating rink. black-owned shops black owned hotels, even a black owned newspaper the Tulsa Star the Tulsa was started by Aj Smitherman and Smitherman was one of a handful of black leaders who would not stand idly by as Oklahoma became more and more like the rest of the south, so as segregating was imposed as lynching story to take place as fake news spread about black men attacking white women. Smitherman denounce these things and even called for self-defence. Ren- was predominantly black. WAS IT entirely black? It was not like there was this entirely black greenwood, and this entirely White Tulsa remember, this was a place that was literally called Indian territory just twenty years before this. So. There's all kinds of mixing and it's also a boomtown. You have white people going into Greenwood Jewish merchants setting up shop in Greenwood Native Americans the Friedman and then you have what they call that the time state blacks because they were from states as opposed to territory. Tulsa was a wild west town, but it was also a Bible Belt town which it still is, and there were plenty of white. People were curious about black clubs music. Dance Greenwood attracted all the big names in Jazz. There's that famous song about Tulsa. Take me back to tell I'm too young to marry. Drop me off at Archer walk down to Greenwood. Wills is saying you can put me on the White Street and I'M GONNA. Walk down to Greenwood because that's where the good times are. Are and so the the powder keg, the thing that made it explosive was that you had these two towns. They were intermixing and a lot of ways both prosperous, but white Tulsa was increasingly adamant about enforcing white supremacy, and that's where the rule of the media really comes in, so there's one publication in particular that you flag in shaping white pulses sentiments. That was the Tulsa Tribune. It was owned by Richard Lloyd Jones. He was sort of a celebrity journalist. He was writing for Collier's weekly. And he landed in Oklahoma, and he said this is the place for me. It's got white supremacy. It's got an economic boom going on. He was essentially handed the editorship. The Tulsa Democrat which he turned into the Tulsa Tribune this paper of his repeatedly struck a couple of themes. Yes, Tulsa was indeed a wild west town. There was all kinds of police corruption. There was violence in the streets bootlegging etc, etc.. But what Jones did was say it's coming from Greenwood or is. He called it little Africa, and they went on a fact-finding mission and they found white women. Dancing while a black man played the piano. And they heard this infernal new music called Jazz. But most importantly for them was that the black Tulsen's were getting a sense of equality. Both the Tribune and the world, we can't give the Tulsa world. A free pass because of those papers said that the number one issue that is creating tension is this black man's notion of equality, which of course Aj Smitherman was very adamant in saying in the Tulsa. Czar. Yes, we are equal, were equal under the law. If you're not going to protect our rights, we will stand up and protect them ourselves. Jones publishes a note warning the mayor and the Tulsa police chief. If something isn't done, something's going to explode. Yes, he actually is chilling chilling to read that. The precipitating event. Involved a young man named Dick Rowland who's black and white woman named Sarah. Page, Dick role and worked in a building, called the direct so building shining shoes. This was Memorial Day, so there wasn't anyone else in the elevator and rolling was going up to the top floor to use the segregated bathroom Sarah Page operates the elevator, and so she takes him up there, and on the way back down there. Some sort of physical altercation between the two what got out was that he had attempted to rape her. Of all Sarah Page, never actually pressed the charges, and furthermore a lot of things suggest that many Whitehall sons were looking for an event. One example that showed the dangers of social and racial equality page was very poor, uneducated white girl who had recently relocated to Tulsa. It is possible that she was told to do this through. Certainly no evidence to even indict much less convict rolling. And that story went directly to the Tulsa Tribune as the following headline. NAB Negro for attacking girl in an elevator. At, the top of the interview, we heard the survivor Olivia Hooker talking about planes dropping things on people's houses I mean what would. Someone see if they were in a helicopter watching all of this. They would have seen a war. The white attackers were often deputised. The police chief Atkinson was handing out badges like candy. White mobs looted gun stores and sports equipment stores for any kind of weapons they could find. Police themselves participated and battle lines formed thousands of white attackers and black Tulsen's who are prepared to not take this lying down. Obviously, they are vastly outnumbered, but they were also well armed, and they took up defensive positions around the neighborhood. When the actual attack begins, survivors remember at five o'clock in the morning. This loud whistle going off, and then all of a sudden guns are blazing and here come the airplanes. What would they dropping? Incendiary devices, so molly Tov cocktails, and that's why the fires spread so widely of course people are filing out of their houses, and a lot of them are being rounded up and put in internment camps, but some of them are just being shot. Right on their front porch. We don't know how many people died that way. Hundreds. Now. Let's talk about. How we remember. How did the regional and national media react? The Tulsa. Media wants the world to know that there was a quote unquote Negro uprising. And they pointed to the armed black defenders who came to stop the Lynching of Dick, Rowland in the courthouse. They said the blacks went crazy. They invaded white downtown. That's how it was remembered was as a riot. What about Aj Smitherman? The editor of the Tulsa? Star the black owned newspaper. Were there any countervailing voices? They're worse. Smitherman was one of the main targets of the white mob. He got away.

Whether Greenwood would have a chance of rising from the ashes. Would depend in part on where the blame land. Two words would become critical in understanding how the city fathers were trying to control the narrative, and why almost immediately the white community in Tulsa referred to the events of the previous forty eight hours as a negro uprising, but soon, the language changed, and the destruction of Greenwood was labelled, a race riot a word that conjured up images of lawless black people fighting a race war, what white Tulsen's did not call. It was a massacre a word reserved for innocent victims, murdered by violent mob. In this case, a white mob. There was a lot riding on what it would be called from the preservation of dignity to financial repercussions to the most crucial distinction of all, there was a two year statute of limitations on a riot was no statute of limitations for prosecuting murder amid the violence and chaos, the young man at the center of it was largely forgotten sometime between the standoff at the courthouse Tuesday night, and the devastation that followed sheriff.

The only Tulsa to receive a payout was downtown shopowner who lost twenty thousand dollars worth of guns when the white mob, looted his business, but philanthropists around the country were eager to help and sent donations small and large to the Red Cross other cities and towns, grams, offering funds the Chicago Tribune, even attempted to donate one thousand dollars a huge sum at the time. The city of Tulsa, however, sent the Tribune's contribution back, Tulsa officials would allow the Red Cross to accept cash for.

We reach MS Brown, Intel, MS Brown lie. Has it taken until now for an investigation like this to happen? You know, that's a great question. And I think that we finally have a mayor who is courageous enough to approach the situation and incident to actually move forward and. And reinitiate the investigation. We're talking about an event from nineteen twenty one, the spring of nineteen twenty one that meant that mobs white mob, set fire to hundreds of businesses and homes, whole city blocks, hundreds of people dead ten thousand homeless, and we don't know the whole story. So maybe just to start off, tell us how this began began quite simply, didn't it? It did and it's a story that was all too common during that period. The inflammatory accusation that a young black man had a salted a white woman in an elevator in broad daylight in downtown Tulsa. When he got into the elevator as he did every day as to shine boy, he was given special permission to go into the Drexel building and get water and use the restroom. Everyday.

The elevator doors, open and dick Rowland takes off running. He's later arrested and taken to the jail house last courthouse. And the accusation is made that they're paying have been assaulted, and that's the story circulated throughout Tulsa. Throughout the day, it went from claims that she had been assaulted two. She was sexually assaulted by the end of the day. They were claiming that she had been right and this infuriated a mob of angry whites who were determined to take matters into their own hands. Lynchings were all too common in Tulsa. Dick Roldan was arrested and whites began together in front of the courthouse, angry and upset about what had happened about forty, black men approached the courthouse initially spoke with the sheriff at that time and offered to help protect Grohl, and he told them to go on back to Greenwood that he had everything on a control and dick Rowland would be fine. So they did return to Greenwood, but some estimates have it that there were as many as ten thousand whites that had gathered in front of. The courthouse last Joe house later that evening angering upset determined to take matters into their own hands and grew up about a one hundred black men returned this time. A white man approached the black man with a gun and said, what are you going to do with that gun? He said, I'm gonna use it if I have to and they begin to struggle over the gun and during the struggle the gun goes off. And at that point there forget all about dick role in page. There's an all out battling front of the courthouse blacks retreat to the Greenwood district and whites slowly advanced towards the Greenwood district. Eventually breaking through the barriers that African Americans had set up protecting their community, but because they were so outnumbered outgun eventually whites are able to overtake the blacks and invade their community and when they do so they invade killing looting stealing and within a short day, by the following day, more than thirty five square blocks of property has been completely destroyed. A thousand homes burned to the ground. Three hundred black on homes, three hundred black owned businesses completely destroyed and not only were they shooting, but they were also dropping nitroglycerin bombs from airplanes that had been borrowed from a local company. And this is described in two thousand and one report, but the Oklahoma commission to study till sa- race riots is that this is probably the only time that the United States is anybody committed bombed from the air.
