Unawareness of Black Wall Street demonstrates need for Black History Month

Feb 17, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Examiner.com

February is when many African-Americans dread the question "Why do we have/want/need a Black history month?" The question may be said in anger or with sincere curiosity.

Great thread that shows when people were trying to do for themselves or "pick themselves up by the proverbial boot strap" some white woman had to go and lie and get the whole town burned down. And after the town was burnt down the whites then complain about how Blacks refused to work and were lazy, and didn't own their own businesses.
All part of the American hypocrisy, with racist men like Strom Thurmond forcing the Black female hired help to have sex with them and making babies, and then chimped out if someone even whistled at a white woman. Or made the mistake of riding in an elevator with a white woman.
in many respects the jim crow years were worse than slavery. aa were suppose to get land and the means to work the land during reconstruction, so they could live. but of course that never happened.

without any land or money or legal protections, most aa were forced to sell themselves back into slavery as share croppers. and other menial slave wage jobs.

sometimes a young attractive black girl from a desperate family, could get a job as a domestic or in a store, where sexual exploitation was always expected as just part of the job. which makes the politics of the strom thurmond's of the south even more evil.

You are quoting the liberal revisionist’s version after they tried to rewrite history.

The real version is:
Major General William Tecumseh Sherman's Special Field Orders, No. 15, illegally issued a policy on January 16, 1865, which provided for land, while some of its beneficiaries also received mules from the Army, for use in plowing.

Known as “40 acres and a mule” refers to the short-lived illegal policy, illegally issued by Sherman during the last stages of the American Civil War during 1865, of providing arable land to black former slaves who had become free as a result of the advance of the Union armies.

Your free because your Parole Officer hasn’t caught up with ya’ yet, just kidding, lol.

In other words it was not a policy for people that did not endure the advance of the Union Armies like welfare, soonercare and snap are today. Sorry you thought you were owed something because you’re not. Turns out no one was owed anything and Andrew Johnson, revoked Sherman's Orders and returned the land to its previous owners.

Co-sign 100 percent!

Strom Thurmond represents the typical white male in the South at the time, that had the God complex and felt that it is alright for him to do whatever he wanted to any Black female. And in Tulsa, some Black man accidentally stepped on a white woman's foot to trigger this outrage.

As you read thru the archives of the Tulsa race riots, the police and National Guard participated in the destruction of the Black section of Greenwood, and murdered and destroyed the businesses of scores of Blacks.

Very few people know this, but Black Wall Streets reappeared later throughout the country. I can't remember all off them, but I know we had one right in Durham, North Carolina up until around 1960...look it up. But guess what? You got it. We bought into integration, and we lost all the rest of black owned business throughout the country. And what was the end product, major black unemployment, and the destruction of the black family unit. It didn't happen over night, but it got there.

As anyone reads thru the actual facts of the Tulsa race riots, the Police and National Guard participated in the defense of Tulsa from the Black section of Greenwood. That was because those people didn’t mind their own damn business AFTER that day. That day of course was Memorial Day, a Monday 30th of May 1921 when D. Rowland, a very short-pecker horny black shoe-shine boy tried finger Sarah Page, an attractive, very well respected white female elevator operator, in the elevator of the Drexel Building. She didn‘t want to be fingered or screwed by a short-pecker black shoe-shine boy either so... She screamed as Rowland unsuccessfully tried to finger her anyway, drawing a clerk from Renberg's attention, which was closed at the time and he stopped Rowland from savagely fingering Sarah Page. This event did not start the riot because...

On Tuesday 31st May 1921, The chief of police had hauled Rowland’s ass in a detention cell in the county jail, on the top floor of the courthouse that was considered by both the police and sheriff's department to be a safe defendable place from a mob lynching or breakout and escape of Rowland until court. That should have been that until court day, but hell no... what happened that day was the real event the race-baiter’s try to cover up that really sparked the trail that led to the riot. It was an incident between a white deputy and an armed black man outside the Tulsa Courthouse. The deputy attempted to disarm an angry black man. This is the actual account:

John McQueen, a white deputy, approached Johnny Cole, an armed black man who was leaning in an open automobile doorway with a .45 Colt automatic that Cole was holding, McQueen politely asked, What are you doing with that pistol?

I am going to use it, if I need to, Cody replied.

No, you'll give it to me, as the deputy politely reached for the weapon.

Like Hell I will, was Cody's rude and hateful response to law enforcement.
As they wrestled for the pistol, Cole discharged it, striking Andy Brown,“another nosey black man looking for trouble and found it“, in the chest and killing him.

Then a mob of armed and hostile black men pimp-marched up the street to the jail. They had come to stick their damn nose in the business of the authorities who had Rowland in custody for trying to rape defenseless, Sarah Page. The sheriff and one of his black deputies (YES, THAT IS NOT A TYPO, IT WAS “HIS BLACK DEPUTY“) told the men that they should return home quietly and mind their own damn business. Armed with their cell phone’s (soup cans and string) the black men called for help and continued to stick their damn huge nostril noses into the laws business.

Next thing you know, the Deputies see a car with 9 black men parked across from the courthouse on Boulder and encountered 3 carloads of black men coming to the courthouse and they tried to warn them back, but they just threatened them. When they went to Boulder and Archer, they seen 5000 blacks, more or less that looked like they were getting ready to make a jungle movie in the city so they go back to the Courthouse. A report is received that the Blacks are gathering at 1st and Cincinnati to invade the business of a Sporting Goods Store and yes, loot it for firearms and ammunition to break Rowland out of jail and escape.

That is the real spark that lit the fire and started the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

It sure did all across this nation as well as in Oklahoma. An Oklahoma treasure-hunter has discovered dozens of film reels documenting everyday life in Black Oklahoma, from a time when few Americans of any color could afford cameras. The chronicle in black-and-white sold at auction for $60,000. Even in silence, musicians marching through Muskogee and the rest of the footage found by historian Currie Ballard speak volumes about Oklahoma's past.

"I've been in this business almost 30 years, and I've never seen anything like this," Ballard said. From the Langston graduating class of 1925 to kids playing outside a country church, every frame of footage documents the lives of black Oklahomans in the years after the deadly Tulsa Race Riot.

"I know of no other early film footage ... four years after that nightmare Race Riot of 1921," Ballard said. "I don't know of anything else that exists as far as motion pictures." Ballard says the movies are a testament to the resilience of Oklahoma's black communities. In town after town, the photographer found black families thriving, even some bringing in thousands of dollars a day with their own oil wells. "And it shows these Dusenburgs and Cadillacs, all these fine automobiles that black people were driving," Ballard said.

Twenty-nine reels were stashed away in someone's attic, and Ballard says he immediately recognized how priceless the footage was. "The difficulty was coming up with the money," he said. Ballard bought the whole collection. The Smithsonian Museum, Harvard and Yale were calling to buy it from him. But he says it's important the images of black farmers and businessmen stay in Oklahoma. Ballard says the most precious pictures are proud people sitting on their porches and other forgotten faces from the past, a silent reminder of an unspoken part of Oklahoma history.

The footage features life in Oklahoma, but also crosses the country from California to New York City and even has scenes from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. An Ivy League school purchased the films, but the university doesn't want to be identified.

So what happened?
Well, as you know, but didn't bother to mention, a group of armed black men crossed the tracks into the white section of town. For their efforts, they got their @zzes kicked back to Greenwood and their community burned down.
So, I guess you could say, if the group of armed black men had stayed on their own side of the tracks, the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921 would not have happened.
SIMPLE
AS
THAT
the tulsa race riots happened because the WHITE FOLK ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TRACK WERE JEALOUS OF OUR PEOPLES GREAT SUCCESS.

simple
as
that.

not long after black wall street was destroyed from the sky and ground, white trash came to the town AND LOOTED whatever they could find left over from the carnage.

how convenient for a savage to find a simple reason to justify the murder of over 3,000 innocent people and the total destruction of a thriving and totally self dependent town.

i guess BLACK BOTTOM and PARADISE VALLEY in detroit was deliberately destroyed and justifiably so because some blk dude looked at some ole 80 year old white woman.

i guess Treme here in new orleans was destroyed because some blk girl had a fight with a white girl.

and what about rosewood? etc.. etc.. etc..

don't know about you sir, but i see a diabolical trend here.

Of course you choose to ignore it, but do yourself a favor from here on out...look outside the race baiter's box. Seriously. The rest of the world laughs as you beat your chest like the monkey you are. If I were you, I would just kill myself.

you still are not able to reveal how an incident involving some blk men at the jail house justifies the destruction of a whole city, 36 blocks and all of all kinds of businesses, homes, etc.. etc..?

I never spoke about the white population but with the numbers like, white 79.96%, black 12.85%, I can hardly wait to watch next time if you insist but...I hope you won‘t. Of course you choose to ignore what I did say, but if you insist on another 1921, it too will probably be like that Cheech and Chimp Movie “Up In Smoke”.

Seriously, You only read about it, my family lived through it, my Grandfather saw it all first hand and we still the have the family pictures of the mess while it was happening. My brother still has the Double-Barrel Shotgun and Restored Flatbed Truck he used.

Our home place is in the East Pine Street and North Lewis Avenue area, the children were still grilling hot dogs on clothes hangers holding them in the air in the yard for days afterwards so don’t tell me I don’t know how it happened.

They weren’t minding their own damn business and their actions are well documented. The response was swift and severe and for the next 50 years they did mind their own damn business and did rather well, proof they did I posted earlier.

Majority of the Black Race has now sold out to the Democrats for a free pass back to the Government Plantation. Obama is just standing at the bully-pulpit to welcome those that voted for him back home. Trust me, that Plantation is not the American Dream. It’s fixing to be America’s worth nightmare.

What they did too Black Wall Street came back on America in the Great Depression, say what you want. Then they had to rebuild Black Wall Street anyway. As I was saying, over the years, although they were stretched-out, we still had other Black Wall Streets up until around the late 50's, and until around 1960, which was when the civil rights movement was hi-jacked by TPTB with a move for integration. The whites knew that bombing these black businesses wasn't going to work in the long-run. Those civil rights sit-ins were staged, and the ideal was sold through the mass media.

Again as I was saying, the end product of integration for blacks was, high unemployment, high incarceration rates, poorer health care, the destruction of the black family unit, etc... You have did more damage to blacks than you did by bombing Black Wall Street, and in slavery. And guess what? You about to pay for it again, with an even greater depression.

Instead of properly sharing your business with blacks, that could have had this nation in the highest stage of prosperity in recent history, you chose to kill, and do business overseas. Now that you've sold us out, you are for sell, and about to be sold-out.

You were given a fake cigar for dancing with the devil, and now that cigar has exploded in your face.
