THIS POLL IS ANONYMOUS. PLEEEEEEASE ANSWER TRUTHFULLY.

Not just the fiasco, but do you know the history of Tulsa, OK? If you feel like you heard the name before but cannot give a basic summary (it's very straightforward) then the answer is "no". Nothing wrong with that, just trying to maintain the integrity of the poll results as much as possible.



Just a small, meaningless survey.

Are you aware of the fiasco that happened in Tulsa, OK in the early 20th century?

  • Negros in Tulsa are barely aware nor do they care what happen.

    Are you aware of what's going on on the Northside (the north of Green Wood) of Tulsa, Ok today? That's a little more relevant.

    Here is a full documentary via Youtube with the story along with eye-witness accounts.




    I'm not trying to undermine anyone's intelligence by assuming people do not know the story. But they do consider this "Black History Month" so I choose "celebrate" by shedding light on those who have not had the fortune of running across this important piece of unspoken history. I am not an expert on this subject, nor do I expect or want anyone to use me as a reliable source today, so I refer you to this video.

    You'd rather some microwavable popcorn and visuals instead of my titangraphs, right?

    what happens in north tulsa?

    The same shit that happens in every other Negro community. A lot of Negros killing Negros and destroying their own community.

    In all reality Blacks in Tulsa recovered well after those riots. North tulsa was once mostly full of good working class black people and for the upper class Negros there was/is Gilcrease Hills. This was long after the riots.

    What happen? These Negroes decided that they wanted to imitate the Gangs in Cali!!

    How do I know? I grew up inbetween Tulsa and Cali. After my parents divorced my mom moved back to Tulsa where she was from and my Dad stayed in Cali and I would spend a year with one parent then a year with the other parent until the 11th grade.

    It's important to understand and acknowledge your past to better your future, but nothing is more important than the present.

    Nope, they all have equal importance. The past is for understanding and learning, gaining knowledge and wisdom. Not to make the same mistakes, a sense of pride and guidance. The present is taking the positive and ushering out a new future. Thus they are all equally important.
