Those who forget history are doomed to fall for the BS of an ignorant and duplicitous MSM:
“Although precise numbers of deaths are impossible to specify, at least 100 African Americans were killed in East St. Louis, Ill., in one bloody night in July 1917; anywhere from 55 to 300 blacks were massacred in Tulsa, Okla., in 16 hours in June 1921; and dozens more were killed in Rosewood, Fla., in January 1923.
You can read the rest @
I think the difference between then and now is that then the powers that be decided to HIDE what had happened, while now they have decided to shout it from the rooftops. Having made that decision, they must hide the fact that massacring people of color used to be a US national sport.
And that in itself is strange, because one would think they would want to use that knowledge to help further destabilize the US. I suspect they want to ignore it because corporations have no intention of EVER paying reparations of the sort which would be demanded if we focused on such past injustices.
