DO YOU KNOW ABOUT BLACK TULSA? IF NOT… WHY NOT?
This horrific incident has been well documented, everywhere: from YouTube videos of survivor interviews to PBS Lesson Plans for school teachers. Please do your Google diligence:
- From May 30 to June 1, 1921, white citizens of Tulsa bombed burned and shot up the “Little Africa” section of Tulsa FOR 18 HOURS STRAIGHT
- Why would they do that? That same old lame excuse, a Black man supposedly did something to a white woman. But the real reason was ECONOMIC JEALOUSY. Whites may have called it Little Africa derisively, but there is a reason that Black Tulsa is known as Black Wall Street
- In addition to the 300 Blacks killed, and over 1,000 residential homes burned to the ground, also destroyed were:
- The Mt. Zion Baptist Church and five other churches; the Gurley Hotel, Red Wing Hotel, and Midway Hotel; the Tulsa Star and Oklahoma Sun newspaper offices; Dunbar Elementary School; Osborne Monroe’s Roller-Skating Rink; the East End Feed Store; the Y.M.C.A. Cleaners; the Dreamland Theater; a drug store, barbershop, banquet hall, several grocery stores, dentists, lawyers, doctors, and realtors offices; a U.S. Post Office Substation, as well the all-black Frissell Memorial Hospital. All told, marauding gangs of savage whites destroyed 40-square-blocks of Black economic and entrepreneurial prosperity!
64 years after the first bombing of an American city was committed against the Black residents of Tulsa… the second bombing of an American city took place in Philadelphia when the city bombed the black members of the MOVE organization. (see the blackourstory archive for details).
Isn’t it a shame that 76 after the bombing of Tulsa, when Timothy McVeigh blew up the Murrah Federal Office Building in Oklahoma City, most historically illiterate Americans - including American “journalists” - responded as if it were the first time such a horror had been visited on Oklahoma. If only we knew.
While there are many lessons to be drawn from this, a few questions that stick out to me are these:
- If the answer to Black second-class treatment from whites in America is supposedly to become the ultimate American capitalists…the ‘model minorities’… how do you explain Tulsa 1921?
- For those Black folk who think that the sole answer to Black people’s problems is simply more Blacks becoming business owners and more Blacks spending money with other Blacks… how did that work out for our people in Tulsa in ‘21?
- Considering not only Tulsa, but Rosewood, Florida, and many other thriving all-Black towns that you may know of that all met the same fate at the hands of murderous, envious, lazy crackers… WHEN ARE WE GOING TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND TAKE SERIOUSLY THE IDEA THAT BLACK WEALTH (ESPECIALLY ALL-BLACK WEALTH) WILL NEED TO BE PROTECTED WITH PHYSICAL FORCE?
There is a reason that Marcus Garvey AND Elijah Muhammad had armies of trained Black men as a huge part of their organizations. Many of us Black folk took those great men as jokes, yet NO BLACK LEADERS SINCE THOSE TWO have reached the same heights of economic and ideological success and unity of Black people.
Not only do we need to LEARN THIS HISTORY, we need to start taking these events men and movements MORE SERIOUSLY, and doing some CRITICAL HISTORICAL ANALYSIS if we are ever to stop being on the bottom rung of every metric in American life. Not just some casual or accidental reading of history; some CRITICAL. HISTORICAL. ANALYSIS.
TULSA 1921 was real. PHILLY 1985 was real. Will it happen again?

THIS POST IS IMPORTANT.
It’s interesting to note that that the garments that have a cross over style when worn correctly are all worn with the left breast over the right.That is because these countries tend to wrap right over left when they are wrapping the dead.
It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…
That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.
"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!"
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”
A concerned woman tried to grab the baby, and a police officer slammed the door on her.
LOS ANGELES, CA – Around the block from where Ezell Ford was killed by LAPD, officers from the Newton Division stopped, Brandon Dawson, 26, on Sunday evening. Dawson had just finished his shift as a dental assistant and was picking up his seven-month-old daughter from his grandmother’s house. He was strapping the baby’s carrier into the car when officers stopped Brandon asking why Brandon had parked in the private driveway. Brandon explained that there were no other spaces available and he had just pulled up to pick up his daughter. The police asked for no papers, and told Brandon to put his hands up as they snatched the father’s baby. Soon after, Brandon would be tazered, beaten, and arrested by police on suspicion of assaulting a gang officer from LAPD’s Newton Division, according to Officer Lilliana Preciado. However, Officer Preciado claims not to have any details regarding what led to Dawson’s arrest.
An eyewitness on the scene that asked not to be identified or recorded due to police terrorizing members of low income communities that call for police accountability, watches the confrontation between Daawson and LAPD. A witness who says that after LAPD snatched the baby from Brandon’s arms, an officer began violently shaking the seven-month-old back and forth as if they were intentionally trying to make the baby fly out of the carrier.
“My baby! My baby!” screamed Brandon. LAPD then put the infant on the sidewalk. Alone.//
A concerned woman tried to grab the baby, and a police officer slammed the door on her. Upset, Brandon’s grandmother came and took her grandchild from the sidewalk. Ten cop cars soon pulled up. Police officers piled on top of Brandon, tazering and beating him. A beating that was recorded on video that has yet to be released. Witnesses and angry community members surrounded the officers recording the police. Police told witnesses to stop recording, but community members continued to film the police anyway. Police responded to by taking photos of those recording them. A tactic that police use to intimidate community members with threats of arrest and deportation according to the witness.
Upset, community members gathered calling police out, “He did nothing to nobody.” “They (police) threw his baby.”
The community response was caught on tape by Ceebo Tha Rapper. Ceebo has been organizing the neighborhood and recording music about police brutality ever since the same police department killed his cousin, Ezell Ford. However, as the community filmed, police swiftly formed a line. With hands resting on their guns, officers aggressively push the crowd back in the video as community members remind police, “We’re unarmed.” This incident which began as a traffic stop between 7-8 pm, had 65th & Broadway sealed off and occupied by a small army of LAPD until midnight.
Following Brandon’s arrest, his mother, Linda Washington, was shocked when she received a call from her sister. She had just gotten off the phone with her son. He had called to say goodnight and ask how her day was. “(My) sister called saying I needed to come down because something happened with Brandon and the police.” Mrs. Washington didn’t believe her at first. After all, it was only minutes ago that Brandon was fine and now suddenly, her family was thrust into an emergency.
Given the wrong information several times by police, Mrs. Washington says she had to do a lot of running around just to locate Brandon and his impounded vehicle. Out on $50,000 bail, Brandon is being treated at the hospital. He has injuries and scars on his neck, forehead, and wrist from being beaten by LAPD. To make matters worse, Brandon’s wallet containing $1200 for his rent, was inside his car. Both the wallet and his rent money are now gone. According to witnesses, Brandon’s vehicle was driven away by a police officer, not a tow truck.//
This seems to be about more than a traffic stop, according to Mrs. Washington. One of the officer’s recognized Brandon from two years ago when they had stopped and arrested him in the very same place destroying his pending opportunity to join the marines as an officer on Monday night reminded Brandon: “You thought you were going to the Marines last time.”
This is a young boy with a baby in the car. And it’s obvious, he’s got on work clothes. What harm is he doing?
Washington asked regarding LAPD immediately using force on her son. Residents of Dawson’s grandmother’s building and his Mom all say Dawson is a sweet and hardworking young father. He has nothing to do with gangs or drugs. In fact, the only other problem Brandon has ever had with police, was in the very same place by 65th and Broadway two years ago with the very same notorious Shootin’ Newton Department.
Concerned about the psychological affects police targeting may have, Mrs. Washington remains determined to support her son.
What happens if every time you take two steps forward someone pushes you two steps backward? Once the police come at you, you’re almost tagged… It’s almost as if they intentionally want to get him to the point to get him locked up.
The eyewitness expressed similar sentiments about local police targeting the community:
They’re racist against the black and latino community. They insult us. They humiliate us. They belittle us.
Statistics back up their sentiments regarding police targeting and racist policing.
According to the NAACP:
- African Americans now constitute nearly 1 million of the total 2.3 million incarcerated population
- African Americans are incarcerated at nearly six times the rate of whites
- Together, African American and Hispanics comprised 58% of all prisoners in 2008, even though African Americans and Hispanics make up approximately one quarter of the US population
The Newton Police Department has been under fire from community members since August when officers from the department killed unarmed Ezell Ford nine days after they killed unarmed Omar Abrego. Regular demonstrations demanding justice for Ford and Abrego and an end to police brutality have been ongoing, but have yet to be met with any response other than force from the Newton Police Department. All of this of course occurring while those rallying for #FergusonOctober are making it look like there will either be justice against racist killer cops or revolution in America. One more family may be joining the efforts to stop killer cops and end police brutality. Mrs. Washington said her family hopes to attend the October 22nd day of national action against police brutality in Los Angeles.
That sounds cool. BUT HOW DOES IT WORK?
(Helicarrier Hulk wakes up, no control, attacks everyone. New York Hulk is good guy buddy only hurt bad guy. Wait! OK! Loki was harshing the vibe on the helicarrier. No, wait further, Loki was just as there in New York. In fact, quite close to Mr. Grabby Hulk.)
I am continually drawn to this dumb film by the interaction between Downey and Ruffalo. I am continually put off by this dumb film by how dumb it is.
Wow, look at this! It’s 2014, and people are still saying things like this! Amazing!!! :D Here, let me explain to you why, and how:
First of all, why do people keep forgetting that The Incredible Hulk happened?? In that film it was shown that Bruce can actually control the Hulk when he deliberately hulks out.
Please notice that Bruce hulked out on the helicarrier because something blew up and he was thrown so hard he fell one floor down through the window. It was obvious that Bruce was hurt and in danger.
Hulk exists to protect Bruce, Bruce was in danger, you do the math.
Not to mention that Bruce was understandably angry at Natasha and Fury because he felt like they’d lied to him. (Therefore, causing Hulk to went after Natasha).
Manhattan Hulk showed up because Bruce ‘asked’ him to. Because he fucking did it on purpose. The Hulk is the physical manifestation of Bruce’s emotions — all his anger, frustration, empathy, sadness, disappointment, sympathy, love, hate, everything. That’s why Hulk knew which are the bad ones and which are the good ones, that’s why he saved Tony from falling off the sky, that’s why he listened to Steve’s orders. Hulk isn’t just some mindless beast who has no feelings whatsoever. He recognised and saved Betty in the midst of his rampage in TIH, looked hesitant when he saw the fear in Natasha’s eyes (it was brief but it was there), punched Thor as a payback, etc. Hulk is not that simple.
Bottom line is, that Bruce can control the Hulk to some degree when he has the option or actually gets to choose, and that’s not what happened on the helicarrier.
So, yea, that’s how.
In this post the uneducated are taught that The Hulk isn’t a mindless monster born simply out of rage.
Anybody gonna mention that our lowdown was given to us DIRECTLY FROM MR. BRUCE HIMSELF?!
Took me until that last comment to realize it is actually Mark Ruffalo, the actor who planed Bruce Banner, who left that incredibly informative comment. Much respect, sir!
Today is Ada Lovelace Day, celebrating women in STEM
Ada Lovelace is widely held to have been the first computer programmer. Close friends with inventor Charles Babbage, she was intrigued by his Analytical Engine and in 1842 translated a description of it by Italian mathematician Luigi Menabrea. Babbage asked her to expand the article, “as she understood [it] so well”, and this was when she wrote several early ‘computer programs’ a 100 years before the first computers were built.
Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of celebration helping people learn about the achievements of women in STEM, inspiring others and creating new role models for young and old alike.
Ada herself was an inspiration to many including Michael Faraday.
On the 10 June 1840, Ada Lovelace sent a copy of her portrait to Michael Faraday with a note saying
'Dear Mr. Faraday,
Mr Babbage tells me that you have expressed a wish to possess one of the engravings of me, by which I feel exceedingly flattered, & hope you will accept one that we still happen to have by us.
I am sorry that there is no proof left, to which I might have put my signature.
Believe me, yours very truly
Augusta Ada Lovelace
St James’ Square
Faraday liked to collect images of people he met or were acquainted with so this etching was gratefully received into his collection.
This was the start of a friendship and admiration which lasted till until Ada’s death in 1852 at the age of 36.
I am not always logged into twitter. You can view an account while logged out. My guess is that she saw the tweets on her phone and went to the nearest computer to get a screenshot.
She went to the account’s url directly. Nothing needs to be in the search bar for that.
The person clearly created a throwaway account so they could harass her. They didn’t bother uploading an avatar so it went to the default twitter avatar. Usually these accounts are created using a IP address proxy so they cannot be tracked.
Since they created the account for that singular purpose, that is why those are the only tweets.
Clearly the person was writing all of this in a rant like state. Publishing them one after the other. It is totally within the realm of possibility that she took a screenshot in the middle of the rant, explaining the 12 second tweet.
I’ve actually had attacks very similar to this. Where someone creates an account just to threaten and harass me.
I’ve analyzed the image she posted, compared it with what twitter looks like when logged out, and there is no manipulation.
The only way it could be faked is if she created the account herself and screencapped the results.
I find that highly unlikely because I have personally seen hundreds of comments, tweets, and messages of harassment and threats directed at her. Basically go into any comment thread where her videos are discussed.
She doesn’t need to fabricate these things. She has plenty of authentic samples to choose from. I can’t even imagine what her email inbox looks like.
The part that makes it scary is that the person had her address.
Whoever told you this did some very shoddy detective work. In my personal opinion, all of the evidence shows that it is authentic. Especially since it closely mirrors harassment I have received in the past.
I’m also a little disturbed how willing people are to blame the victim. Studies have shown that “false victimhood” is actually very rare and it is prudent to always give the person the benefit of the doubt. What if this was a real threat, the police were like, “I don’t believe you” and then something happened to her.
Be very careful with things like this. Victim blaming can have serious consequences you may not be aware of.
And “debunks” like this, where someone says “oh the page is clearly faked for xyz reasons,” are almost always a calculated lie. Sure, not everyone will believe you, but a LOT of people will be inclined to believe you no matter how shoddy your proof, and a lot of people will be impressed by the confidence with which you announce “it’s a fake!”
For every actual logical rebuttal like Frogman’s, there are probably ten more people who see this “proof” and become convinced Sarkeesian is lying about the whole - despite the PLETHORA of publicly visible evidence that there are people who are willing to threaten her.
If you spread the lie that Sarkeesian is faking her harassment, you are complicit in that harassment. You are aiding her harassers. Stop it.
also the moon landing was faked and obama was born in kenya
