100 Years Ago

The good white citizens of Tulsa, OK, burned "Black Wall Street" to the ground, displacing thousands of Black residents and murdering about 300.

Many of the killers were given guns by the city and deputized. Airplanes dropped flaming balls, soaked with turpentine, to help burn everything down.

Nobody was ever held to account. None of those who lost homes, possessions, properties or businesses were ever compensated for this blatant act of state-sponsored terrorism.

Is there anything since that would make this impossible today? I don't know of it.
