This is a quick overview of what happened to Tulsa, OK’s “Black Wall Street” in 1921.

The black population grew to prominent, too successful, so they were literally massacred. They were bombed by the US government. The United States of America sanctioned the firebombing of the black population of a major city prevent “a Negro uprising”.

Most people don’t know which US city was the first in history to be attacked by air, and this is why

"Black women have had to develop a larger vision of our society than perhaps any other group. They have had to understand white men, white women, and black men. And they have had to understand themselves. When black women win victories, it is a boost for virtually every segment of society."

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

Please remember that the word “riot” has been used to silence Black political action before. It trivializes Black actions as senselessly violent or worse yet, unprovoked. “Riot” is “uncontrolled behavior” or “a public disturbance”.

This isn’t a riot. This is a demonstration. This is a wake up call.

THE POLICE IN FERGUSON ARE BARRICADING PEOPLE AND WON’T ALLOW THEM TO EXIT. THEY ARE THROWING TEAR GAS INTO PEOPLE’S YARDS AND HOMES. THE POLICE ARE THE REAL RIOTERS OF FERGUSON.
