Trump Defies Nevada Directive as Thousands Gather for Indoor Rally
"It appears that corona virus doesn't seem to affect Donald trump or indeed any of his supporters at a rally in Nevada. This weekend supporters mostly mask free stood cheek by jowl as president claim that the US has nearly conquered. The virus O'Brien classes assistant professor in global politics at UCLA AND CO author, how to rig an election and he joins me now for an update on the week's election events in the United States Brian Welcome back. Good Morning. Let's begin with this latest rally in Nevada. There's widespread coverage of the fact that social distancing rules will broken practically on every single level going against Nevada state regulations and indeed the national regulations. Yeah I. Mean it's it's just remarkable in mind boggling I mean here in the UK we have new restrictions in place trying to limit the spread of the virus on Friday. There were six new deaths in the UK in the US were over a thousand and you have the president of the United States not just talking about how public health measures should be further rolled back but actually leading by example in doing. So by putting people at risk at his rallies and remember. That in a previous rally that he held indoors in Tulsa. Oklahoma this summer, a former presidential candidate Herman Cain seems to have contracted the virus at that rally in died. So I mean, this is not just putting people at risk in the abstract could actually kill some of the people who are at the rally not to mention infecting others who have made no choice to go to rallies and have been infected by by trump supporters. The many people have said that rally in Tulsa was. A turning point for Donald trump insofar as because of the deaths and because of the large infection rate that followed it, and the fact that that's that whole was pretty one-third empty when that happened it kind of changed his attitude towards everything. The fact that he has so openly you'll. have so openly defied all of the regulations isn't this now just a clearer sign that there is a, there is a public rift now between Donald Trump, the White House, and effectively all the rest of the world science. Yeah, there's there's no other comparison in world leadership I mean you know when? When Donald? Trump. Talked about the virus in the beginning. He called it a hoax. He down played it repeatedly, he lied to the public as we know now with these revelations from Bob Woodward's book in which he privately was saying that this is a very deadly virus in publicly saying there was no risk that it was going to disappear like a miracle but then recall in in April when public health measures were put in place in various states donald trump called on people to liberate those states that was the language used in tweets from the public health measures when masks were recommended by the public health officials, he said they're not required and he took it. Pains to say that you don't need to wear them. So you know there's a reason why the US consistently is having about a thousand deaths today while most most countries in Europe are in the either single digits or low double digits, and you know it's it's just an ongoing problem where the US is effectively given up right now in the US, the worst states are in the upper midwest and the reason for that is because just weeks ago, two hundred, fifty, thousand motorcyclists descended on a small town of seven thousand people in Sturgis, South Dakota, which is allowed to go ahead and it spread a massive outbreak. Of Two, hundred fifty thousand people meeting in the middle of a pandemic doesn't exist doesn't compute in other countries in the world and yet it's being done with Republican leaders sanction. Where is the drive coming forward to defy the regulations into to go in a different path you mentioned the the infamous interview he gave to Bob would march when he said I wanted to play it down I still like playing it down because I don't want to create a panic but at that time he did recognize the he's huge risks of a place by corona virus. Is there a sense that the the decision to make everything feel normal put everyone together in the same room is coming directly from trump or is this a campaign move? I think it is coming from him and I think it is a campaign move. I think it's coming from him trying to argue that he is putting the economy I A lot of this has been with his sort of mindset that we must open the economy and the fundamental mistake that he made in some other world leaders made, and then quickly realized that it was mistake is trying to divorced the economy from the virus. The economy will grow in the virus goes away. The economy will improve when the virus comes under control and so you. The what's happening in the United States is very, very bad as or equilibrium where you have high levels of virus transmission and therefore you have a very low levels of economic recovery because people are still scared and I think the campaign is going to have serious implications for trump not just because of how bad the virus outbreak is for everybody. But specifically, because the people who don't want him to put the economy, I are those who are most vulnerable to the Virus Aka those who are. Sixty five plus and vote a lot. Especially, our key voting demographic in places like Florida and Arizona where they have large retirement communities in their swing states. So if he continues to do this to sort of model behavior that clearly shows that he is willing to put their lives at risk, it's a it's a very big opening for Joe Biden to say to those voters. Look I'm I'm worried about the economy to, but I also don't want kill a whole lot of Americans before you know. Before the virus comes under control through a vaccine or or petering out through her immunity God forbid. So I think this is a very risky strategy and one that could end up backfiring for

College Football Embarks on Uncertain Season Amidst Pandemic

Fauci disagrees with Trump on coronavirus
"The United States has not rounded the corner that is from Dr Anthony Fauci. The Nation's top infectious disease expert delivering a blunt specifically worded rebuttal to the president to, of course, Said said the other day that the US is rounding the corner on the pandemic. I'm sorry but I have to disagree with that because if you look at the thing that you just mentioned the Statistics Andrea. The. Disturbing. Disturbing. The US Steph told you shy of two hundred, thousand number of new cases hovering around forty, thousand, a day and an influential model. At the White House sites all the time predicts the death toll will more than double by the end of the year. Four hundred thousand people dead by the end of December, and yet trump's behavior continues to scorn mask-wearing or social distancing his rally yesterday you see it three thousand supporters more than that. Actually packing an airport hangar in Michigan without masks without social distancing. And and you might say why why are they doing that? It is clear. They are following the leader the person that they are there to support. They are following the president just listen to them and then listen to the president. Care for it. It's that simple. I don't see it for myself. I am young and likable are year are not young. People are very strong. It gets this horrible disease. Temperature taken already, and I'm not saying not necessarily here. Everybody's been tested and I've been tested a hard time understanding people when they. So that's why I don't wear. You can hear me right now I can hear you you're going to have to take. You can take it off your your health how many your wet Well if you don't take it off your very muffled. Those trump supporters Jim Acosta speaking to them getting those very powerful Soundbites Jeremy Diamond is out front and Jeremy You know very strong words from Dr Voucher tonight specifically using the words rounding the corner. No, we're not right. Exact words the president used to rebut his claim. Yeah, no questionnaire in Doctor FAUCI typically tries to avoid directly contradicting the president's or directly confronting and putting himself in opposition to the president, and it tends to happen quite a bit simply by the fact that the president often downplayed the threat of this virus in Dr, Fauci is stating the facts, but it is notable to see dumpster here directly contradicting the president saying, I have to disagree with him on that and he does because ultimately Dr Foudy does rely on. The facts you relies on the science and the facts and the science show that the president by any metric you consider is wrong when he says that the United States is rounding the corner on this and of course, we started this week Erin with the revelation that the president had intentionally misled the American public about the deadliness of virus. He said that he likes to downplay it, and what's remarkable is that we are finishing this week with the president continuing to do. Exactly that because the president is saying that we around the corner, he is saying that the numbers of corona virus cases are plummeting. When in fact we know that we are at a plateau of nearly forty thousand cases nearly a thousand deaths per day and Dr found she is warning about a potentially difficult fall and winter, and of course, it's also remarkable when you see this rally that the president is holding three thousand more than three thousand people huddled together very few. Of them wearing masks and obviously it's coming from the fact that the president in his rhetoric has really downplayed those things. Yes he has acknowledged in in recent weeks. That mask wearing is important. He is called a patriotic, but he is still not modeling that public health behavior, and of course, for months on end, the president downplayed some of those significant public health safety measures and as you just showed in that video, the president's words. So often being mimicked by his own supporters. Jeremy Thank you very much earlier. We spoke to David Plyler these local Republican official in North Carolina and he spoke out this week urging president trump to wear a mask during his rally in that state the state by the way I wanna make it clear has a mask mandate. So we asked him why why does he feel the president should wear a mask and here's what he said. The president is a citizen of the United, States Nettie wants North Carolina. is asked to voluntarily do that not is a matter of health alone. But in the leaders situation, it allows the leader to be seen by people he or she represents and they generally hopefully would follow suit as an elected official. I've been asked to look out for the safety and health of our community, and that's exactly what I was doing. So. Yeah. Know that's just the reality right? That's how it should be but this has become political and plyler happens to be Republican. So he got some feedback on his comment about the president. Here's what he told us about. Well I got backlash from everybody they didn't call it say I'm a Republican or Democrat. I hadn't felt on for south. Carolina. Who taught me a cuss words? A sailor has never heard before. We also ask piler why he felt the need to speak out right? Why? Why did he do it? He could have just been quiet and just rolled his eyes and been angry about it but he didn't he spoke out and he said that mash to be worn, the president should wear one. Why do you do that? It's something we have to do. No chores. And this is not the first time that plague of this time has hit this country nor will it be the last I'm sorry to say in we've had plagued across the United States. We've had things in Europe. We've had him an England China just goes around the world I just hope we can get out of this. So. reasonable. So calm collected. I want to go now to Dr Jonathan Reiner Director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at George Washington University Hospital who else would advise the white? House. Medical team under President George. W.. Bush. So you heard Dave plyler right I mean it just just just so reasonable. So clear. And and he wants the president's followers to to wear masks wants the president to wear masks you heard them. They they they scorn it. They disdain it. It comes from the top. Do you think it's possible to pandemic would be a lot less worse if the president had from day one said where mask. I think if the president had said from day one everyone is wearing a mask. We'd have got forty five thousand deaths in this country and I say that because that's extrapolating German experience they've had a middle of the road haven't been the best. They haven't been the worst they been okay in their pandemic response. And they've had about ten thousand deaths. We have four times the population of Germany. We'd have about forty, five, thousand deaths in this country. So about one hundred, fifty, thousand people would be alive if you WANNA think about why we still have forty thousand cases day and a thousand deaths today in this country is because. We're still talking about masks. It's so basic. It just seems so nefarious now that we've heard the president. Really articulately express how dangerous this virus was on February seven. He knew the route he knew he knew how lethal the virus was. He knew that this was ACM dramatic people. He understood yet he decided not to protect the people. It was a conscious decision not to protect the people even now even today. Do you think his supporters would go and be unmasked. If they knew what he knew you think Herman Cain would have gone to Tulsa. Sit there shoulder shoulder without a mask knowing what the president knew. So so you know you Dr. Fouled. She the president said that we were rounding the corner the latest in his many salvoes sang right it's going away. But that's what you just said. Doctor felt she came out today and we're not rounding the corner, right? I mean he didn't. He didn't talk around it or generally obliquely rebutted he rebutted it using word for word because he felt it was important and then he went on to say this. When you're in the middle of a pin damage and you're trying hard to address all the appropriate issues, it is truly a waste of time. The bunk nonsense but unfortunately, we had to do that. Frustration is coming through in a way I haven't seen it before. I admire the man. So much I'm he is a brilliant scientist who's devoted his life to protecting America from all kinds of horrible pathogens. And he still added and he he he he does not get discouraged. Look. It is a waste of time for him to have to deal with some this nonsense, but it's necessary. He has to debunk we rely on him. If only the the White House brought him out to these press events and had an let the press on Moss as can questions wouldn't that be refreshing? I'm grateful for him everyday

But I think that you know one of the burning questions that we seem to be having is how much vitamin D is right for me and there's really It's different for everyone and there was a book called optimal dose that Dr Louis Read. There was some other of our. Clients that ask about that book they wanted to know well, how much do I take because? I think it was very high levels and Dr Lewis is going to answer all that for you.

You what can happen when you do too much of that, and we are also going to answer a whole lot of questions that we've received from our audience via our shooting straight with Dr Louis facebook group, and if you're not a member of that, all you have to do is go there and ask for yourself to be invited in either by email or send him A. Message on facebook and he'll accept shooting be part of our community. You can also answer or ask US questions online. There's an online forum for the PODCAST. So anything we don't cover here today that you still want to know or any other topic Please reach out to us that way we try to work it all in and make it a very enjoyable show. So Dr Louis. Vitamin D seems to be the thing immune system right now can you tell us how much what the difference is and is there anything wrong which is loading up on it? You ever been just one drink away from telling people what you really think. Never. have been quite often Yeah, you know I'm GonNa talk a lot about this, and you know it's absolutely amazing facebook The shooting straight has been a good thing. There's people that follow me there that actually work for some really big. Supplement. Companies. Which is afforded US Janet and may an opportunity to do some really big things I was called salt of the Earth yesterday which I thought was funny. In longhorn Texas as well as we thought, that was even funnier. We've renamed our town from Longview to Longhorn now I I love it. I guess SOCI- eight that we owe steers and Texas I. was kind of funny Yeah. But I've got lots of and this all started about five years ago when I was on a podcast as guests from Jack, Speer Co, the survival podcast, and he is crazy crazy smart, incredibly intelligent. man he he really knows what he's talking about and he's tastes certainly blonde by giving his opinion and you need to listen to him. But I got a lot of people from being on his podcast and people would say there I'm taking five thousand or ten thousand years and you know of course I'm looking at Lamma. It's not working. But I'm taking over ten thousand I said, it's not working MO- supplements don't work. And some of them are actually very toxic to you and there's reasons for that too. I finally did the percentages on it with the help of my count it because I'm not good at percentages good Lord I skipped that class in high school probably when fishing or something and ninety three percent of what people were buying and taking not working ninety three percents your odds of getting something niche. Good. Yeah and Jack Speer Co was talking about it and again spare 'cause a really crazy smart guy. You check him out he's he's really good he. He'll tell you what to do during times of stress and trouble where I'm just good for telling you how to be healthy, which is not bad too but. And I was in Tulsa. and. He he was talking about that Nina is getting involved in his facebook group and he said, well, you ought order this book and you know it'll change your per-. Paradigm about what you think about bottom of day and I said with the books already been ordered. It's on the way coast read books all day long. And Yeah, I don't know this change paradigm I try to push it in any way but I do think what this book outlines, which this guy says take thirty thousand a day. It's like one Manana don't do that not without testing and that this is from the book. Now from Jack Sparrow one of the things that people talk about is I can't sleep dog do you have any kind of thing for sleep? Well, if you're low in Vitamin D. That can cause you to not sleep well. At date threes plays a very pivotal role in the body achieving the state needed for deep sleep and very, very important and I have people at tight. You know five, thousand, ten, thousand and some it gets them up for you need to be I think the sweet spots hundred. Seventy, five or this book says more than that, and there's no evidence of it being toxic, but there's more to that some teach you that. But when you're three levels are optimal, you your your immune system, the depth of sleep in the rest that you get there and your metabolism, your metabolism becomes primed to function more edge greatest potential.
Chasten Buttigieg: Shares His Side of the Story
"You know for all the Presi during the Democratic primary and for everything that was written about you. It wasn't until reading your book that I realized how unique your position also was as an out gay man in a relationship with cylinder running for president that has never happened before in our history with that something that you thought a lot about our talks about with the team I thought about it endlessly. I obviously encouraged him to run. You know gave him all the support and instead go for it. But that's because I had no idea what running for president was like so it's very easy. Say Like Yeah I love you great president and then you know the campaign took off rapidly and then my profile rose pretty rapidly and for a few months as you read in the book I had there's a lot of anxiety about how do I feel this rule? This world has never been done before there's no playbook I was anxious for a long time about making sure I got the moment and making sure that I was doing it whatever quote the right way was and ultimately I just decided. I have to be myself like I can't do this pretending to be anybody else or. Expecting people to think anything else but myself and that worked really well, and it was also disappointing to some other people but at the end of the day, I just wanted you know people liked me I, want them to like me for me and if you know if it wasn't enough in at least it, I wasn't going out there pretending to be something else every day. Are you able to explain why it was different being a gay man married to a gay man in the middle of a presidential campaign compared to like any other spouse? Will there was sometimes, it was like sitting in the middle of the blender and just kind of like watching the world like swirl around you and you're getting all this input and feedback and everyone has an opinion about what you should do, what you should wear what you should say, and then sometimes with really invasive things like how you should perform your identity, your sexuality things you should talk about or shouldn't talk about and it was weird to watch. You know one side of the aisle we were far too gay for people like rush Limbaugh, right of course, and then other people saying like there he is or he is not performing a way that is what I would like to see and you know at the end of the Dan thinking like I am just being myself but I I don't think I would have been as successful. Had I been trying to pretend to be this mash up of? Michelle Obama and Chrissy. Teigen. Something I was wondering during the campaign was. Fun joked that people had was calling you the future first lady did hearing things like that like hurt or offend you know? I mean I felt like a lot of it was just ingest and felt like people were celebrating it. They knew that it would be historical and they and they knew it was something to be celebrated I never really took offense to. Anything like that was a piece of criticism that was the hardest to hear some of the criticisms that sort of made my head spin. You know when when we talk about like what is enough in what isn't enough? And I was spending so much time on the trail and I. Wish. I. Wish more media would have covered what I was doing on the trail because I spent most of my time with teachers, students, lgbtq centers, homeless service providers they all have very personal connections to me in my story and so almost every day I was in some sort of LGBTQ senator or Having roundtables with young people and I. Hear these stories that were so reflective of mine you know young kids who had ran away from home without they didn't belong who were bullied in school who were pushed out of their churches who didn't feel like there was space for them and who are literally questioning their worth and their dignity, and then I see these criticisms of myself, my marriage, this campaign saying were straight men I think one. Person Quips that you know we're just two straight men without women. These situations that like Queen's must look a certain way and I'm thinking like, why are we policing the boundaries in making young people believe that clearness has to be performed surgery has to look a certain way as if you have to exist a certain way to belong in our community when many queer people are sitting, for example, in Tulsa Oklahoma or in the desert and California. Wondering if they even deserved exist at all and at the end of the day like I'm, I'm a big boy. I can read that criticism and think about it and you know examine it through our critical lens. But then I thought that was really dangerous to to young people. It is a funny thing because you know talking to somebody queer people everyone's like digesting messages of how to be gay how to be translated all these things and a common theme I've heard over and over again is they didn't feel like the right kind of gay and then suddenly we have you the national spotlight and like throwing that same criticism that hurt so much on you as well. Yeah it's funny because like I was I was at an event once and this woman asked me. Does being gave matter. I. Mean You keep talking about it like you talk about running away from home and you talk about. Marriage equality and the fight for Trans writes does any of that really matter I think it was one of the only times I had to like look at my team on my God you know hold me back. This is is so insulting and I said. You know until people stop killing us it does matter.
Live Hurricane Laura Track: Storm now an 'extremely dangerous' Category 4 system

And I was like, okay, we got a nice little main card. Overall. I really thought it. disappointed. A. Wasn't. It wasn't it was some weird circumstance. Is Not, the fighters falls yes. It's not like they all wanted or tried to go to decisions or anything, but some sheet happened that made it kind of weak. So I will talk about John Dodson. Showing up in doing nothing. Mood he's gun shy told you these headed someone's wrong sums? Are you gotTa drop the weight? You know it's not it's admit this is mental. This is a one hundred percent mental Dj Rodham, his soul Shang soon them he probably I think. So something happened because remember when Dawson arrived on the scene like he knocked out Tj dillashaw the magic man, but he was everywhere. Hands hit bricks for hands fast as hell you couldn't take them down. Like he was easily the number one number two, the fastest fighter in division. Easy. Maybe the entire UFC. But now it's like he's completely gunshot. And visibility. Didn't he just? Fuck this, he had so much fun beating up on John Dasa just like tossing him around. I don't know who John Dyson it's over this drop the weight it won't matter if you don't let your hands go. Yeah. Morale was having a blast Murrah was in his quarter just like that's easy lay. This is mile in after the fight through the headdress back on he just didn't care and do we both picked us and I can't remember I definitely did. White I feel terrible and morale is going to be a problem at bantamweight. He's. If. He continues fighting like this. The way he's you know just out wrestling guys like he's on a nice little fight he streaked. Yeah and he was able to out strike Dotson granted Dotson tried too much to to throw hands I. Don't I don't know what the game plan is for Dotson Eurofighter anymore like why watch them fight I go to the Jimmy Rivera finally what's what's cleaning I? Don't think there is one. Rob. is on a firefight winning streak last lost. What's to Ricky Simon Smoke. Yeah. Okay. That makes sense. Okay I. Remember there was a submission. So young has buzzer. By the way you might have won that fight yet move rob has been dominant these past few fights but this the dots performance impressive. I. Think he could be a problem but I put more of the blame on John Dasa because something mental is going on with this man is not up to his capability. Yet Very Weird I. Can't call it he needs a sports psychologist. He's recapture some late when you don't even try to let the hands go. That's when you got a problem. So next fight, Herbert, Burns versus Daniel. Pineda this is where you are right and I was wrong. A feeling this and like this. I I don't know another weird fight because I think burns was just dominated from the jump. Eight just he didn't seem to have it this night. No. Cash wait forty, five, I don't. I can't. Blame it on but. The elbows came down and it was a rap so. Whichever I mean yeah I mean. Significant strikes. Ten. For burned. Fifty, seven for opinion. Yeah. I mean like it'll be like this but I kind. Win this fight, but that's wild and that was in dominant fashion. Then we go to the next night jd s versus Rosen struck. and. Bump you know super buff. Different, body. Mustached. GPS. Didn't help him because he got rocked. And slumped on cage. So the thing about Rosen's struck is what I've noticed now is yeah. Okay. Everybody's GonNa lose the Francis in God like if you rush Francis and got gotTa, you're going to lose that's what's going to happen. So this fight, he was a little bit more patient picked spots really didn't do a lot in the first round. Waiting for eighty s kind of open up getting a little bit more comfortable like ease up on the guard and he's just let it has put away. But this division. I don't want to say that there's like a huge gap is not a valid Musa Tanko gap. That's we're going to call that gap that's shift that's it is absurd. Touching her, but it's a pretty significant gap in skill after steeping. DC's probably gone. I don't know skill wise because. Roy, as he is. With all the raw power, he's still a role as an enemy fighter. Roses stroke is a raw power like the striking's there but. What happens with Steve puts him on his back. And clearly debate Baker Take Punch. So I don't I don't know who's who's going to be a problem for steep A. At this juncture, we'll talk about it in a little bit because even though I think in God who's going to be better if they have another fight. I can't. Skill wise. It's different levels of this shit.

"tulsa" Discussed on BrainStuff
"Brain stuff a production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff, Lauren Bugaboo I'm here. 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. Ellsworth said I know that this has been a process that has been going on for a while now it's caused people to kind of reevaluate how they look at the past. How they look at their town and what's going on? I think that's been liberating process for some people. It's been a very difficult one for others.

Yeah, that would have been way too much inhibition of civil liberties. Can you imagine? Also in the offing is violence that many black community leaders in Tulsa have said to expect as holding the trump rally during the day June tenth celebration of the emancipation of slaves, black people in a state with one hundred year history of the worst racial violence in the country from the Tulsa massacre to white supremacists Timothy McVeigh's act of domestic terrorism in the ninety s to police brutality against black kids accused of walking away. was that in history that was two weeks ago. Having the father of birtherism and champion of police, violence and internment camps come to town dispute. And Cova nineteen pathogens with the backing of the National Guard and the police. In case, anyone in trump's crowd starts brawling with protesters well, whatever is deeper than idiocy and louder than insanity. That's what this is. Anyway no matter what happens in Tulsa, this would not be okay. The fact that this rally is going forward is just wrong, but it seems to be happening were minus two days, and it is time to talk about Tulsa. My guest.

"Sir New People to Tulsa? How can they? Get involved to help support the program. Support the the people in the cohort. How can they get connected? That's a great question there are there are a lot of different ways that people can get involved. First and foremost if you meet somebody from Tulsa Remote. Be Nice to them. And ask them how you can help them get connected at Tulsa remote got people's attention and the ten thousand dollars helped the move here, but it's not gonNA help them. Stay here, right? It's the city of Tulsa and the people of Tulsa that are going to convince these individuals to stay, and if they don't stay there, they will hopefully be advocates and ambassadors to the community wherever they end up a because of their experience in Tulsa beans, a positive, and there's definitely an ancillary benefit to all of that. Yeah, because I imagine you living on East. Coast on the West Coast had to on occasion defend the middle of the country. All the time I should have gotten a salary. A was. I was regularly. The first person somebody had met from Oklahoma. Let Alone Tulsa. and. I had an opportunity to change perceptions and A lot of my friends were not surprised that I moved back to Tulsa. Because they knew how much care about this community and in how excited I was about the trajectory that it's going. Tulsa is going to grow, and as you were saying. You know you're passionate. There are a lot of people who are passionate about Tulsa, NYC. Tulsa is going to grow. It's it's whether or not it's going to grow in the right direction, and we need individuals who are active in the conversations who care about accessibility and affordability in in an urban core care about education care about public transportation who care about food deserts, being part of the conversation to ensure that as we grow. We've learned from the other communities that came before us to ensure that we as we grow that nobody nobody is being left behind in that growth so easy thing is just to be nice to the remote bryce. If you, WANNA get involved in. In actively working with Tulsa remote, we have a facebook group that you can join and we will be starting this year to invite individuals to events that are happening throughout the year. You can also email info at Tulsa remote dot com and give your contact information..

"And I feel like remote workers have. Sometimes low more freedom to be more community engaged than people who have a nine to five office job and have to be at one place all the time you know remote people can do their work from a local coffee shop can do go. The library can have lunch meetings, so it's. It's an interesting angle. My question when I first heard about this program was. Both of us moved away came back. Would that ten thousand dollars have been? Better used, but differently us to track people who moved away to come back, so we don't. Differentiate between individuals that were from Tulsa and left and came back and people who've never been to also if individuals that have left also want to participate in the program. We're really excited about that. The ten thousand dollars is meant to remove a barrier it removes risk. The risk of there's a financial risk in moving to a new city so if you can remove that risk and provide additional incentives, the community development aspects that the co working space. My opinion is is that you're you're you're developing a program that that really attracts the right type of people. The people who were actively looking at moving into a new community hadn't considered Tulsa before said why not try it come and visit see what makes his town special and spend a year getting connected? I know that you're still you're you've just past the sort of year? One Mark, so you don't necessarily have the data to answer this question, but. What would be? Success tells her mode going forward of those people. How many of them would need to stay for two years five years ten years for you to look back on and be like okay. This worked this brought. New. Energy new ideas new people to Tulsa. That you can measure success. In one way, we've already been extremely successful. The exposure of Tulsa to the rest of the world is has been pretty huge over three billion and reach at this point people who had never heard of the city before are now thinking of a town that is moving in the right direction. That's willing to take chances that are attracting really talented people in other ways. We've already been successful. The people who've come through in the first year have already gotten incredibly connected to the community and are are helping the the existing leaders push issues forward that they're really passionate about I would say the greatest example of success would be that the individuals that come in like living in Tulsa and choose to stay longer than a year. And while I, don't expect every single person to stay. I think the vast majority are going to stay and the feedback that I've gotten from them anecdotally is that they are happy. They're excited I mean. It didn't have help this year that we had a tornado in an earthquake in the same week, but but for the most part people are extraordinarily excited about Tulsa and and have been really happy about the decision to move here. And you don't have to get into specifics, but I'm curious. What are some of the? More interesting. People who've moved here either the type of work they do where they came from or people that have interesting stories. That's always a really difficult question for me to answer because each individual that came through the program is really incredible. Yeah, I. Am Really Lucky..

"Okay so We actually took a commercial break in the midst of a massacre so the the thing is like people are being driven out of their houses and shot in some cases but more often than not there being like just flushed out but no house no building no business. No nothing was spared there the intent of these these white terrorists. There's really no other named forum was to Burn Down Greenwood yes fighters were kept at bay. Yeah they said do not come in here like the the the riders will kill you. Yeah do you is just stay away. They burned greenwood to the ground. Thirty five blocks thirty-five blocks do you know how many blocks that is. There's a lot of blocks talks. About how many blocks is thirty five blocks and then add like ten because I guarantee your conception is less than actually thirty five blocks. There's a lot of blocks of buildings burned into the ground. People killed in their front yards including Dr Andrew Jackson. The famous surgeon shot like a dog in his own front yard in the chest. There's there's a picture of him. Twelve hundred homes Churches Schools Hospital Library I think I mentioned the six hundred businesses total right. They're all torched just torch. There were six people who owned airplanes. They were that wealthy in Greenwood. There are planes were stolen by the writers and used to drop bombs steinem might nitroglycerine fire and then there was also accusations. The National Guard was helping. Coordinate this too yeah. The National Guard was called in In when they got there by all accounts they did not try to help quell the riot. They more acted as Helping to arrest black men Let's just historical fact. Oh yeah they were they were bringing in. I mean they were killing people for sure but there are also arresting black men. The women and children fled The six thousand people were arrested and the women and children fled toward the woods. Basically right like leaving behind everything they owned. Who are homeless there is there is ten two thousand people who lived in Greenwood at the time and after this one night this orgy of violence there the There were the nine thousand left homeless and hundreds dead. Yeah and apparently back to the National Guard they said that they brought in planes just just to spot fires and coordinate ground security but there are reports from people they're That said that they were actually shooting at people right on the ground. Say That that's a rumor rumor. Yeah even setting that aside. The National Guard didn't come in and quell anything. They just started arresting and detaining the victims of this massacre that was the role they played in this in this situation. That's right so The whole thing culminates with I mean in the end. It's really hard to get the the amount of people killed. I think the official report says thirty five black people. It's certainly way more than that. I've seen all the way up to three hundred. That's that's sued. I saw is almost across the board. Three hundred yeah it again might be one of the things everyone just sort of settled on a on a number But it was not thirty five people to be sure no definitely not so like as the sun comes up the day after I think June first Greenwood burned to the ground. There's people hiding in the woods. Thousands and thousands of former affluent residents of this black community homeless now homeless. No they're not homeless because the national guard is very kindly put them in detention centers at the fairgrounds other. That doesn't qualify as a home right. That's my point is that it's not a home. Yes yeah right. They're kept detained at the fairgrounds. For months I saw in some cases most of them had to endure the winner. This happened in May may yeah. These people were still a lot of them kept in detention camps at the fairgrounds through the Winter Yeah Tulsa winters and summers are both tough. They were kept in detention camps APPs because white rioters burned their town to the ground. Yeah and this was in June so right right so Yeah it was June. I guess it was the end of May so who The way that you got out of these detention centers was your white employer. Came vouched for you and said this person works from Anita back. Yeah please let him go. That's how you got Out Yeah so in the aftermath. No one was arrested. There were no prosecutions no no. I'm sorry chuck there was a grand jury that was sat. You convened they. They indicated twenty people. All of them were black. Well no more white. Yeah that's meant on the whiteside okay. there were in today's dollars between fifty and one hundred million dollars worth the damage everywhere look said the only organization that really helped and they really helped with the American Red Cross Super Brave and did did a whole lot and I also saw where You know it wasn't the entire city of Tulsa. Apparently there were some white communities that reached out in the aftermath of course to to help with the recovery efforts to take people in Yeah So we don't want to paint the entire town As doing the wrong thing. Apparently some people did step up shirt. Sure I mean just literally black and white. Yeah you know there's always shades of gray in that situation any situation yeah but Greenwood Came Back Act. They it's probably not a surprise but The insurance companies had a classified very quickly as a riot instead of just a violent violent massacre Because I mean they wouldn't have to compensate. People for their homes. Being in business is being burned to the ground right because if they were riding than they were culpable for that damage accidents parents company. Yep So also despicable the county commission said. No we're not accepting any outside donations. We'll take care of our or own and then didn't didn't follow through on that at all so there were no funds paid to the Greenwood people able. We're trying to it right. As reparations order order even help them rebuild and the county commission against proposed at one point that they would handle this by buying the land for like a a fraction of its market value and then auctioning off bitter. That was one proposed. That'll an old scam. And they also say. Will you know what just to make sure that this doesn't happen again. We're GONNA and establish a new building code for Greenwood. No building can be rebuilt. Unless it's built with fireproof bricks. And then they went to the fireproof brick producers and and said do not sell any materials to the black people of Greenwood so despite this they managed to rebuild in about five years down the the people whose houses in town was burned to the ground came back and rebuilt and from just about everything I read. Greenwood was actually better more prosperous Burson more affluent from the the second time around. Yeah then it was even the first and it was pretty affluent. The first time and chuck we said like hundreds of people were were killed right. Yes so get this funerals. Were forbidden like you weren't allowed to have a funeral. That's how how how covered up. This thing became. Yeah and one of the reasons. We'll never know how many people were killed is because the the people who were killed were taken off and dumped in the river or stashed in coal mines or buried in mass unmarked grave slow. They think they found two of those Like a month ago. Yeah There archaeologists in Tulsa and. This was from Time magazine from Jasmine. Agwu Lara they have identified two sites that they thought were that they think our mass graves raves. And they've been looking since I think two thousand one because they knew people their reports of mass graves in so archaeologists have been looking looking and in two thousand eighteen They started like legit investigation And they think that they have found one on at least one maybe two of these sites but even like which is in a cemetery ironically. Yeah I saw that but even this whole thing is like fairly new wasn't like until the late nineties. That people people even started talking about this right yeah. Nineteen ninety-seven was when the state of Oklahoma introduced a bill and this was after. Just not talking about it. No in the black community they would talk about it and stories and whispers The white community just buried it and the state of Oklahoma just didn't acknowledge it. Yeah the last. Last thing I saw was the Tulsa Tribune ran another editorial on June fourth. A few days after basically saying like lynching failing thank you know they said thank you to to the police in all the white citizens who cleaned up toll so by getting rid of Greenland it was. It's actually way worse than what I just depicted but I couldn't possibly hospital bring myself to to read it verbatim. Yeah it's just vile. Yeah what it says. It's really bad But in ninety seven this when they introduced a bill for reparations and creation of the Tulsa Race Riot Commission and that report was released in two thousand one and it did hold police in public public officials to blame But it didn't do anything basically. There were no reparations As for Dick Rowland the case was the actual case. Remember remember the case known the assault that was dismissed in September. Apparently Sarah Page didn't WANNA press forward with charges and she's lost time. He supposedly Rosalie immediately moved to Kansas City. Maybe and no one else really knows anything else about him That's just so surprising. Yeah you know. And if not for the watchman coming out this might still be fairly buried story outside of Oklahoma. Yeah right it's really brought a lot of attention to it for them for doing that. Yeah so one one of the things that I saw about Greenwood itself that prospering and flourishing for decades after this until about the sixties and One of the reasons I saw that explain why not just greenwood. But a lot of black areas thirty to decline in the sixties was a byproduct of integration was is that you could as a black person in America spend your black dollar at a white owned business and like they don't. They didn't teach us that in public school like this is a byproduct of it. But as a result these these Black owned businesses started to decline more and more and more And so wasn't as prosperous as it was before the death below the deathblow is that remembering our interstates episode where a lot of the poorer areas a lot of the The areas of color. That's where they built. I saw that they bill. I two forty four right through Greenwood. Yeah Tesla's an interesting place. It's been a few weeks there a few years ago and it's It's interesting because it's got this old oil money yeah neighborhoods. Yeah some of the most amazing estates and houses I've ever seen Got some very poor communities Lot Of meth problems. Yeah it's an interesting place. Sounds like it. Yeah well that's Tulsa for you and you know what I spend a few weeks there in this neighborhood and I didn't know anything about it I didn't maybe there is a memorial or something but I didn't notice it. I'm not saying there isn't one but I didn't see it so you know Desmond Tutu sure. Who helped will bring about the change over from apartheid to reconciliation? I love work. He can't have big fan. He came to To Tulsa Basically said you guys are sitting on Power Kate here like when was this A very long ago nineties maybe even in the two thousands just just basically saying like you can't how could you possibly he'll when you still have bodies in unmarked grain and like no one's talking about this still. I believe there is a park that that they've found a reconciliation park or something like that but it sounds like there's still a ways to go. Yeah I wouldn't it be ironic. That it was watchmen that basically forcing this issue to be discussed the pretty ironic. Yeah the power of comic books right well not even TV August of graphic novels. Yes so if you want to know more about the Tulsa massacre also known as the Tulsa race riot of nineteen twenty one. There's a lot for you to go read thankfully and you should Type that into your favorite search bar since I said that it's time for a listener mail.

"All right so we should talk about The key player here or players And in this case it is diamond. Dick Rowland one of the greatest names I've ever heard in my life is pretty good. Yeah he was a Shoeshine boy in Tulsa and by all accounts he was Smart and he was a handsome young guy and he was Sort of a a man about town he was popular with the ladies. Have the world on a string. Yeah pretty much and There was a girl named Sarah page. Who ran an elevator? The Drexel building A building that I have walked paths with my own two feet. Oh Wow right. And she was white white. She was white and You Know Dick thought she was cute and he would go down there and basically kind of make up excuses to ride her elevator. Okay I I saw something different than that. yeah I saw that. He was on the elevator because he was key could use the Segregated bathroom I'm on the top floor of the Drexel building only so he had to ride up the elevator up and down to get to the bathroom closest bathroom for him to be able to use. That's what I saw. So you're saying he didn't Fancy Sarah page. No I don't know but I also saw a different explanation for why he would have been on the elevator. As often as he supposedly was all right he was both. Yeah yeah maybe. He wanted to the bathroom a little more often than he had to because they did things their patients who knows. I'm not saying they necessarily contradict each other sharing other explanations. As well I gotcha Gotcha does the Senate very lawyerly for some reason. Didn't it man. Maybe this is The new you in two thousand twenty matlock. Josh Clark Esquire Yeah Spree. That's different than esquire so At any rate we should probably also point out that And you know a mixed race couple all still get sideways. Looks in some parts of America today but certainly in nineteen twenty one in Tulsa Oklahoma The idea of a black man fancying a white woman woman was even looking at a white woman yet. It was not only Untoward but like a threat worthy of lynching right. It was still that time in America. America where If you made any advances that was sort of the biggest fear for some white men was black men coming in and taking quote unquote they're women. Yes which is characterized popularized. Thanks to birth of a nation which depicts the clan? You know coming to the aid of white women who are about to be raped by maniacal black men who just couldn't couldn't help themselves. They were just so in love with white women that they just had to rape. That was just what black guys has did. That was the view of black guys time. That's just how it was so to white people you like you. You kept an eye out for that like when you saw a black man and there's a white woman over there you want to make sure that he wasn't going to you know raper. Yeah that was the mentality that people were walking around with back then. Yeah that movie movie was actually partially shot in my old neighborhood in La. You have a lot to do with this episode. Well it's just weird to think about birth of Nation You know being shot in in Los Angeles which is very like could have hip community in on the east side of Hollywood sure But Anyway on May Thirtieth nineteen twenty twenty one Dick role went into that elevator. To either flirt or use the restroom or both. Yeah and what I saw was that the it was well. So now that the third floor Landing did not land flush with the threshold and Supposedly this is why as the story goes. Dick Rowland tripped when he was getting onto the elevator. Yeah so maybe. If that bathroom was on the third floor that could make sense our top floor. I don't know how many floors the I don't remember. Actually is more than three. I don't know I don't remember. Actually I don't think they'd call a building the something building. If it only has three floors you know what I mean. You're probably rally right. It's like an eight plus floor like moniker. I think you're probably right. But at any rate He gets on the elevator as the story goes Stumbles getting on and Kinda falls forward and grabs her arm which was kind of the first thing that he could get a hold of from falling As the story goes she started beating him over the head with her purse. Because I guess it's an old Looney tunes cartoon and she didn't have a rolling pin and The elevator opened on the ground floor of people. See this sort of scuffle going on or what appears to be a scuffle She allegedly cries is out the she'd been assaulted and people on the first floor. Call the police as Dick Flees on foot right to take takes off. Yeah in you. Yeah no no one knows exactly how this all went down. No one even knows exactly who Diamond Dick Rowland was or Sarah page. Yeah for that matter always are yeah. All we found out what was that she was an orphan. She could have been a young sixteen of seeing reports of seventeen and was working to pay her way through business college. And and that's what the the Tulsa Tribune reported like the day after. Yeah and I saw that elsewhere but I also saw like literally nothing else about her. Yeah didn't find anything. Then Dick Rowland. They think that he might have possibly been named Jimmy Jones right. I saw that too and who was raised by his grandparents. Whose last my name is Roland? So he took their name and there is a guy who would have matched his birthdate Named Jimmy Jones they found buried in Tulsa but he died like like two months before these events took place so it could have possibly been him. Yeah there were a few years apart too. I think was it. Yeah Okay but it's unbelievable that so much of this is lost to history street these two people off this one of the most despicable events that has ever taken place in this country's history just vanish almost after this point. It's just you guys played your role now. Everyone else is going to step in. So Dick goes home His mom he I guess he tells his mom what happened and she obviously was pretty scared right away because she knew probably what this meant but for that night at least nothing really happened The next next day he goes out to meet up with some friends and the Tulsa police pull up and Take Him in basically on an assault charge right right. Which is I? Don't know why they didn't go pick them up at home or whatever but they. I also read somewhere that they had arrested him on the spot. But the what you're you're recounting matches what I've seen most right right. Yeah but that's that's history especially suppressed history right one person right and then somebody else reports and then yeah enough people report it and then that's fact exactly that's the story But so either way he came into police custody. We know that is the way it is. And then this. This is like a white. Sheriff named William Sullivan I think. Right William McCullough McCullough. I was very close. Yeah when you're starting to read the story you hear about this this White Moustache Sheriff and immediately think Oh boy this guy is in trouble. Will this guy had replaced the last guy that was trouble right. Yeah who would allow the The a white mob to take An arrested black man out of his custody and Lynch him. Oh it says heroes. A white person person is that not true. I think that's wrong. Okay either way he. Somebody's your lynched by an angry mob. Yeah which I thought for sure sheriff McCullough was GonNa do but apparently McCullough was intent on kind of going by the book he followed the Heck Tate School of Sheriff Ing. Note that from From a Tequila Mockingbird oh right right which was. Hey let's let the law play out. Let's give him his day in court. There will be no lynchings on my watch right. So he took He took Diamond Dick up to a room on the upper floor. The only way to get there was this one staircase so he basically strategically hit him out. All went down to this white crowd and said there's not going to be any lynching today like Chuck said the thing is we've left out a really important point here. Yeah like why was there. A white crowd to begin again with right. Yeah there is a newspaper that was called the Tulsa Tribune that Ran An article about Sarah. Page being assaulted halted This is a news article and the headline I said News Article was NAB Negro for attacking girl in elevator. VADER NOT PEOPLE MIGHT NAB Negro for attacking Gerland Elevator. Police worried white mob might net. It's nab like go do this. Yes yes that was the headline for the Oracle. The editorial took it even a step further and this is the day after this event took place. Yeah the editorial was to Lynch Negro tonight and I gotta say whoever's writing these headlines it's inflammatory of course but but they also don't make much sense. Yeah they're poor construction. They're very poor construction and I went to try and find the the microfilm of this and I think the first one is available but blurry the second one the only copy of that paper they have is a Front page with an article cutout that scanned in. And everyone's like it must. This must have been that editorial but I I literally couldn't find any you know because I was kind of curious to read just talk variety. This person was right and get you know probably would not have been accurate details. No so no they. I mean they basically Reported it in the first one and the actual article That her hit her her clothes had been torn at yeah they they really characterize it like he attacked her like a sexual assault right exactly And then the second one is just basically like an all out editorials calling for Dick rowlands lynching. Yeah this is in the paper. So the the local newspaper has inflamed the The white citizenry into basically calling them to action to go do something about this. And they all all show up at the courthouse to to demand that sheriff McCullough handover Dick Roll into them so they can go lynch him and he says yeah no back off no but so before. I think he tells them like no. I'm not I'm not doing that like you said but Before for the crowd disperses. A second group comes and it's actually a group of World War One veterans from Greenwood who had found out that that the white mob was going to lynch role in. They're like no no they're not. We're going to go see to it. That doesn't happen..

I I'm going to push forward We've been offer a couple of weeks which was Pretty Glorious do not have to just over tax my brain but it was also nice to get back in here into the stank of this room. This I don't think this room stinks. Well right now. It smells like your caramel. Vanilla Frappe just black coffee is this happens to be. Flavored bike is really. I mean it smells great. It's I think Green Mountain or something Caramel Vanilla. Coffee pod man. It is super super fragrant. Yeah it's nice and a great way it makes. It smells like an ice cream Sunday. It's pleasant that is very pleasant but it's not doing the job like I'm instill. I'm a little tired a little groggy. I had a four shot Latte. Hey earlier and so I'm Kinda Gotcha. Maybe this what I made them zippy and go downstairs to pay for coffee but yeah good on stairs spillers park okay. He watches place a four. Shot Law yes okay. That has me going. Well I give it about a half hour show crashes everybody yes seriously anyway. I'm glad to be back. I'm glad you're back to hear the whole time. This is where he spent Christmas and new years. Yes both in this room and Thanksgiving giving and I guess you mean Momo flipped over there in the corner and he comes to visit and sometimes they say please please come stop working. I say I can't they slide the food tray through the slot You know where I got this idea and I know you haven't watched it. But the watchman I came across mention of that I was he's like why is everybody talking about the watchman with the Tulsa race riot or more appropriately wise. Everyone all of a sudden talking about the Tulsa massacre yea Because the watchmen really put it on the map in a big way Utilize it quite well in the story line and have a recommendation. I've been Dacian for everyone even though it is a marketing piece There's a thing in the Atlantic called the massacre of Black Wall Street paid for by HBO. But it's it's a It tells the story in Comic Book Form In the Atlantic Cool very cool and I didn't notice it was a marketing piece until afterward but again well still good sure your song as the contents yet. It's cool and very well done so This is like a great that the watchman of brought intention to this because it wasn't until about two thousand one. Maybe the late nineties really. That people started talking about this. I know and this this event that we're GonNa talk about happened in nineteen twenty one and almost the the week after basically the week after everyone said. Don't talk about uh-huh yeah just forget it ever happened. Where is moving forward? And we're GONNA bury the past literally buried people. The evidence evidence all the stuff that was buried and people just acted like nothing happened in Tulsa Oklahoma for like eighty years. And when you hear what we're about to talk about it's astounding that community both black and white agreed to just basically pretend this never happened at least publicly civically. Yeah and It's hard to find some some information still on some of the key events indefinitely some of the key players because a lot of them died of old age Enjoyed ever having been interviewed. Yeah no follow ups like I mean. We'll get to a couple of key players. It's like the kind of all we know right. I looked them up a tune. Like wh- what do you mean. You have no idea even who this this guy was left alone. You know what became of what do you mean like you. Just no one gets traffic. Yeah that's how complete and total this cover up was it was a cover up so let's talk about it. I talk about Greenwood which I was not familiar with breath but greenwood was a influent. I guess almost suburb adjacent to Tulsa just north of Tulsa and what was odd about the fact that it was a fluent is that it was an all black community in you know the turn of the last century and yet it was one of the most affluent communities in the entire the United States. Yeah I mean now it's just part of Tulsa like a neighborhood but back then just sort of like my neighborhood would have been a suburb of Atlanta the the nineteen twenty s Even though I'm you know five miles from downtown right exactly but In nineteen twenty one. It was like you said super fluent They had A lot of I think there were ten thousand black residents. They're called the Black Wall Street like I mentioned and six hundred businesses there were fifteen African African American millionaires living in this district. Yeah fifteen black millionaires in nineteen twenty one until so Oklahoma. Yeah it wasn't wasn't the whole area was very well to do. There was like indoor plumbing the public schools there were like top. Not and in many cases Greenwood in would had a lot to boast about that like the white areas in Tulsa just over the railroad tracks literally on the other side of the tracks. Yeah Didn't have like the the this is far better off than some parts of wight Tulsa yeah including One of the top African American surgeons urgence if not the top in the country endorsed by the the doctor. Mayo himself the Mayo brothers. Yeah this guy is Dr Ac Jackson and he he was one of the people murdered in this massacre yet. Yeah I was GONNA say. There's a spoiler but I guess we've already kind of mentioned. There's a massacre coming right. Yeah so just to take a step back even further so it's pretty impressive to think of like this. Is the Jim Crow Era United States. Yes this is. We're talking about. The massacre took place in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. That's fifty years. After the end of the civil war in many ways the Jim Crow era was just as bad as the antebellum slavery era. But so the idea to us today looking back at this it's time of others the black community In Oklahoma that was one of the most affluent areas in the country. It's kind of mind boggling. But if you dig even deeper into how it was formed. Almost you develop a sense of pride in this that these these these people came together under these conditions and not only like nick survived but thrived. Yeah in create a carved out a place for themselves where like being black with celebrated and where you could be proud and you took pride in your home in in your children and your children's education in the healthcare that they were getting in the bus service in the theater that you went to The confectionary the the Soda Fountain. That's where you went to go like propose marriage like there was an incredibly developed community and the the one of the ways that it was that it was able to flourish it was able to kind of grow like this is because the first thing that that Oklahoma did when it became a state it was originally a territory for forced relocation of native Americans and their African slaves to this area When it became mistake when the white settlers came in and said no we want this? Instead we're GonNa take this territory we gave you away in turn into the first piece of legislation they passed. I was that Black people have to stay in their own area. They can't marry outside the race. He can't frequent white owned businesses. They they have to stay over here. And so the people agreements fine with us. We're GonNa Pass Covenant that says you have to be a black person to own land here or even rent a place here don't a business here. There's a covenant restricting community and we're GONNA take a tremendous amount of pride and in circulating deleting our currency. Our hard earned money that we're making by working for these white businesses. That were not allowed to patronize right. You know go make our own businesses over here and and we're going to support them with our with our community not only because we can't spend our money elsewhere but because we have a lot of pride in the businesses that we've built over here and so in in this way greenwood flourished because of an in spite of these Jim Crow era laws that bite people had to deal with in in Oklahoma at the time. Yeah yeah and this was Dave Bruce helped put together. Put this together and Some of the research he got was from the book. The Burning Colon massacre destruction the Tulsa race riot of nineteen twenty one by Tim Madigan And various points out that this was This happened in Oklahoma of course but this this kind of thing was happening. All over the country Not just in the south or the whatever you call Oklahoma. I guess it's the West Midwest. Yeah but not mid West. I no no I think he just call it. Oklahoma's interesting some people there identify with the south. But if you're from Georgia Oklahoma it's not the south. Might as well be you know Montana. China I think of Oklahoma is like native America. Yeah isn't that what it says on the license plate. Maybe it says middle other country though the little little the positive and there's a picture of the mountain dew logo but This was happening everywhere. They were in nineteen nineteen. There were two dozen race riots. It's in places like Chicago. Washington DC Saint Louis In between the end of the civil war and World War Two there were more than four thousand lynchings in the United States. Right which is You know it's important to point that out because what and we'll get into the story here but lynching is what was The aim of the white people of Oklahoma on this night right. But I have seen also one of the reasons why I went to serve much Lengths to explain greenwood impart was too because to show what was lost here but also to show There's there are a lot of people who consider this massacre to been carried out fueled in part by envy bright Because the people of grief over there's so much better off in some instances than than the white people who were carrying out this massacre. All right. Maybe you should take a break. No and then we'll come back on man we gotTa Start Twenty twenty with an argument over break Stewart. All right. Let's take a break. We'll come back and talk a little bit about The Beginnings of what would end up being Tulsa massacre You.

"This pretty extensive collection on the Tulsa race massacre and the Curators there said when he came to the library in nineteen eighty. He found that someone had gone through all the magazines and used to raise her to cut out. All the stories on the Tulsa race at the time is called the Tesla race fry it. Yeah so people were going to great it links to cover this APP which I think is just proof that they know it's a shameful event. Yeah maybe they're trying to hide it but come on. Yeah I mean absolutely and now the the truth is being brought to light on all of this. Where do we think that the story goes next? Yeah well the next logical question is. Will there be reparations for descendants and a community that might be more affluent or more power had those murders not occurred I also talked to Deneen Brown about this. She's been talking to activists in the community and they believe reparations. It can take a lot of different forms. They say reparations means atonement it means Justice it means paying back the wealth of lost. I it means also even though the perpetrators back in nineteen twenty one most of them are likely dead. It means maybe filing charges charges against them because no one was ever arrested for the killings excuse yeah and acknowledgement on its own is a big deal And I think think that would mean a lot even as gesture to say you know this happened and we recognize that. It happened Well until now the Tulsa Race Riot Commission which is comprised of descendants descendants and historians has only identified thirty five African American bodies with the revelation of these mass graves and the commitment to transparently investigate. There's finally really a real chance for justice and family. Burials and what happens in Tulsa might end up being a blueprint for other cities across America to address in atone for past just racist violence in in those places three and more about this checkout. Deneen Brown's writing at the Washington Post. She's been on this beat for a minute. And I would encourage you to watch watchmen. It does a very beautiful job of you. Know sort of exploring generational trauma associated with specifically the massacre in Tulsa.

"Been something else, some small incident that would have escalated into an all out. Massacre of hundreds of people. Let's talk about the residents of Greenwood, we, we've mentioned quite a few of the more prominent ones, the doctors, lawyers, and hotelier as other entrepreneurs, but that was a, it was a community of almost you know what eleven thousand people at the time. So obviously, they weren't all white collar workers. In fact, many of them were returning veterans who had seen service in World War One. Yes, I think this had probably a profound impact on, on the incident. Can you tell me why? Yes, absolutely. NFL act. You're absolutely correct. Nearly ninety percent or so of the African American community continued to work in service positions as maids in housekeepers, porters and so forth. But after. War worldwide when African American veterans returned to their homeland after fighting for their country after experiencing this respect and they coming back to their own community realizing that they weren't being treated with respect here. Even 'Soldiers, even having went and volunteered fought for their country, they weren't being treated as equals, they weren't being respected. And yet, they still felt this sense of couret, and they were determined that they were not going to stand for the same thing that they had stood for before they went to fight for their country. They had a nuisance of strength and courage and determination and they were determined to protect the community where their families lived. They were willing to risk their lives to protect the young man that they believed was innocent and willing to do, so because they were soldiers and because. They felt that as men. They had a right to defend their homes and businesses. And then we come to the day of the, the master itself in just two days, three hundred Greenwood residents were killed many many, many more fled. The city forty blocks were burned to the ground, and that left ten thousand homeless. Now, the Tulsa chamber of commerce on the, on the south side of town met shortly after the massacre, apparently, we only now know what was discussed how what was discussed an and how did we find out so recently, the Tulsa chamber held a press conference, and they presented the room with cultural center would a copy of those minutes from nineteen twenty one and they were prompted to do so, by a former employee Bill white who's in African American who up until recently was also employed at the Greenwood cultural. Center as our director of development, and when he discovered those minutes during his time at the chamber, he asked that they be released to the public and the chamber took some time to discuss on how they wanted to do that. Because they knew that this was a sensitive topic, and this is a sensitive time for us as we approached the one hundred year commemoration and the minutes. Ev- sensually say that immediately following the massacre that a committee was formed to, and they decided that there should be some reparations that they should assist with the reconstruction of the Greenwood district that initial committee was fired, and they brought in a new committee of individuals who were not at all in favor of reparations or reconstruction or assisting the black community at all. So everything that the chamber initially. Said that they were going to do for the black community through this committee, that had been founded informed. They did not. Do they did not do any of the things that they initially stated that they were going to do, so the African American community without any assistance from the chamber or the city of Tulsa was forced to many ways fend for himself? What did the chamber do if they didn't meet their their own objectives? What did they do then was to make to take the land that belonged to African-Americans where their homes and businesses were house, which is what we think, contributed to the climate between African Americans, the dissension between the two whites symbolize, we believe that as downtown Tulsa exploded, and there was this needs to expand that wise, decide. That they needed blacks to leave the Greenwood district and move farther north, and they approached them prior to the massacre, an- asked them to do just that downtown Tulsa was exploding, and they realized that they did, in fact need the area, where blacks had built their homes and businesses even though initially they didn't mind them building in that area. But as they expanded they decided in realized that they did in fact need that area. And when they approached them, they were told that blacks were not at all interested in moving.
