Moses will start ranting about the black walstreet, like he has done in the past. He will get hung-up on the subject and rant.

How do you think the Black Wall Street would have fared during the Great Depression?

Keep in mind that it was rebuilt in 1925 and was more vibrant then it was before the riots.
It was still prosperous during the great depression.

Will the next Black Wall Street have their own fire station this time?

I guess your right, I had never read much about it till now. It failed because blacks were allowed to spend money most anywhere by 1955.

It seems to me the the blacks were capitalizing on the blacks and making them spend their money the way the business owners dictated.
Black Wall Street failed because of lack of support from other blacks.

Nope! It failed when whites burned down Black Wall Street and black lacked the capital to rebuild...

That was partly true but they also failed because the city wanted to build 4 highways in the same area.

Oppressed people preying on others in their group who are also oppressed = cannibalism.

I asked this question many moons ago and people didn't get it. So I'll ask again.

What lesson can be learnt from Black Wall Street?

Until you can answer that question correctly any further iteration of a Black Wall Street will end in failure.

This is why we study history...

It first failed because blacks pulled together and kept an innocent black man from being lynched.
It failed the second time due to integration and highway building.

The lesson that we can learn from Black Wall Street is how blacks can pull their resources together and do anything they want. That is the lesson (well part of the lesson).
