On Tuesday, Joe Biden (American President) was in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to attend the hundredth anniversary of the 1921 massacre, also known as the Black Wall Street Massacre that destroyed a Black community. Above three hundred people were decimated along with hundreds of businesses and homes when a riot assaulted the neighborhood.
President Joe Biden has delivered remarks on victims of the massacre while talking at the Greenwood Cultural Center. He described that for too long, the history of what had been done here was described in silence and cloaked in darkness. He added that just because history is silent, it does not mean that it didn’t take place. Biden said that while darkness can hide too much, it eradicates nothing and it erases nothing. He remarked that some injustices are so horrific, so heinous, so grievous, and they can not be buried and no matter how hard people try.
While traveling to Tulsa, a White House spokes-lady described that Joe Biden decides to shed light on what happened and to ensure the United States acknowledges the whole story. She further explained that President Biden is going to say that the American people need to recognize the nation’s history of racism, slavery, and housing.
Ineffective policies have left color communities far behind
Ahead of this, the White House explained that it is proposing efforts to help thin the racial wealth gap and spend in those communities that have been facing critical issues. The communities have been left behind because of the ineffective policies.
The White House said that the American govt. would drive new spending plans to enlarge homeownership and back tiny business ownership in various communities especially disadvantaged communities and communities of color.
The day, what had done in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is an incident in the nation’s tense history regarding racial discrimination that many American people have very little acknowledgment, also the nation struggles in the current era’s racial reckoning to oppose accusations of racial economic inequity, American police abuse of minorities, and combative discussions over freshly passed voting restrictions that critics mention are intended to control the turnout of voters from Hispanic and Black communities to limit their influence.
However, the memorial of the hundred years ago events has been matched with the clashes in 2021.
