Post How the Tulsa Massacre Was Almost Lost to History

June 1 marks the 100th anniversary of the destruction of “Black Wall Street” in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

But that day — with hundreds of Blacks killed, and houses and businesses burned to the ground — did not become part of the American story.

Instead, it was ignored, unlearned and untaught until many years later. Even this year, the Tulsa massacre is still unknown to many Americans.

The massacre in Tulsa began when เกมสล็อตฟรี white anger built over a Black man accused of stepping on a white girl’s foot. Blacks came with guns to the jail in Tulsa where the man was held to prevent his killing. White people answered with deadly force. For the next two days, on May 31 and June 1, mobs of white people terrorized and burned the Black neighborhood of Greenwood. The attackers killed up to 300 Black people and forced survivors into internment camps.

Understanding society
Joshua Guild is a professor of history and African American studies at Princeton University. He and other historians say racist attacks like Tulsa are very important in understanding the United States today. When an event like that is lost to memory, American society cannot be truly understood.

It is “sort of a lie that we tell ourselves collectively about who we are as a society,” he said. “If we don’t understand the nature of the harm ... we can’t really have a full reckoning.”

Manisha Sinha, a professor of American history at the University of Connecticut, agreed.

“It’s really important for Americans to learn from the past, because you really cannot even understand some of our current-day political divisions and ideas,” without knowing the country’s full history, she said.

Some terrible events that many Americans do not remember were from long ago. For example, the 1887 Snake River attack in Oregon where 34 Chinese gold miners were killed. Or the Sand Creek massacre in 1864, where U.S. soldiers in Colorado killed around 230 Native American people.

But other forgotten events were within the lifetimes of Americans living today. In 1985, a bombing by the Philadelphia police killed 11 people. The police were targeting the Black organization MOVE.

Robin Wagner-Pacifici is a professor at the New School for Social Research, who has written about the MOVE bombing. She said that just because an event is important or impacted a large number of people does not mean it will be remembered.

Remembering the Tulsa massacre
In Oklahoma, the massacre mostly was not discussed until a committee was formed in 1997 to investigate the violence. For years, the state’s public schools called it the Tulsa race riot. Students are now asked to consider the differences between calling it a “massacre” or a “riot.”

How an event is presented can make a difference, Wagner-Pacifici said. That could include whether it is connected to other historical events and whether or not parts of the story are given importance.

In Tulsa, news of the violence that started on May 31, 1921 did make it to the papers. Front-page stories from The Associated Press spoke of a “race clash” and “armed conflict.” But the stories of the aftermath — of a community destroyed— went mostly untold. Weeks later, The New York Times reported that a jury in Oklahoma had determined the violence was the fault of the armed Black people. It was off the front page and not major news.

“All sorts of political forces and actors will kind of move in, to try to name it and claim it, in order either to tamp it down in its impact or to elaborate it in its impact,” Wagner-Pacifici said.

She pointed to a current example: the deadly Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol. Some Republican lawmakers have blocked the Democratic-led attempt to investigate the attack.

A presidential visit

President Joe Biden visited Tulsa on Tuesday to honor the victims of the massacre. As the first president to do so, his visit will bring even more attention to the massacre.

Biden also met privately with survivors of the massacre. And his administration presented several new policies aiming to narrow the wealth gap between Black and White Americans.

Eddie Glaude is with the Center for African American Studies at Princeton University. He said Biden’s visit “is so import

Stat writing The scope of tong-ji-dai-xie/is relatively large,so many people use this writing service, including students in mathematics and students in the humanities.In fact, professional organizations often need to carry out data analysis, so find senior experts to systematize their data and make predictive reports.Applied statistics study how data can be used to solve practical problems.There are two main types of applied statistics, so looking at your purpose should determine what methods and rules you want to use for your research.Descriptive Statistics Use different indicators to describe the characteristics of the data.If you need to build mathematical models to solve problems, then you should probably be familiar with the basis of inferential statistics.In addition to applied statistics, there are mathematical statistics.This field of science learns how to improve statistical methods in theory.
