Ever Heard Of Black Wall Street?

Post by 1st Pharaoh on Sun Aug 23, 2015 2:17 pm

Greenwood is a neighborhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As one of the most successful and wealthiest African American communities in the United States during the early 20th Century, it was popularly known as America's "Black Wall Street" until the terroristic acts of white residents lead to the Tulsa race riot of 1921, in which white residents massacred black residents and razed the neighborhood within hours. The riot was one of the most devastating massacres in the history of U.S. race relations, destroying the once thriving Greenwood community.

Black Wall Street Had: 600 Businesses, 21 Churches, 21 Restaurants, 30 Grocery Stores, 2 Movie Theaters, 6 Private Airplanes, 1 Hospital, 1 Bank, A School System, Libraries, Law Offices and even a Bus System. But it seems the fine people of Greenwood either forgot or refused to acknowledge they were still inside the Yankee White System. Ultimately with all they had, they really had nothing. I suggest they needed a Pharaoh.

Then to the list of Everything they had would have included an Armory a few Tanks and some people willing to die for their Land. But that is just the opinion of a humble man. What do you think?
