On this day

On May 31, 1921  the richest community in the history of the US was burnt to the ground. The Tulsa Black Holocaust i.e. the Black Wall Street Carnage, the worst riot in America history took place on this day in 1921.  

15,000 Blacks were left homeless, between 300 and 3000 were killed, wounded and/or missing, 1500 homes were burned to the ground and over 600 Black owned businesses in a 35 square block area were bombed in the all Black Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma. It was the first American city to be bombed by airplanes. More people died this day than in any single event since the civil war. White historians did an excellent job in wiping their footprints from the sand. Reference to this can't be found in any history books. But we dig deep and uncover the truth...
