These Famous Reality Shows Are Actually Fake! Tabs, Tues., June 1, 2021
President Joe Biden's proclamation on the hundredth anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre.
One hundred years ago, a violent white supremacist mob raided, firebombed, and destroyed approximately 35 square blocks of the thriving Black neighborhood of Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Families and children were murdered in cold blood. Homes, businesses, and churches were burned. In all, as many as 300 Black Americans were killed, and nearly 10,000 were left destitute and homeless. Today, on this solemn centennial of the Tulsa Race Massacre, I call on the American people to reflect on the deep roots of racial terror in our Nation and recommit to the work of rooting out systemic racism across our country.
Republicans are responding to the centennial of when white people literally bombed the Black section of town BY AIRPLANE by actually making it illegal to teach about racism in America, in addition to all their usual DIDN'T HAPPEN and IF IT IDID WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT, and then pretending to be UNBELIEVABLY U MAD that Kamala Harris wished people a nice weekend. (That last part at The Root.)
