    Atlanta Race Riot (1906)

    When the Civil War ended, African-Americans in Atlanta began entering the realm of politics, establishing businesses and gaining notoriety as a social class. Increasing tensions between Black wage-workers and the white elite began to grow and ill-feelings were further exacerbated when Blacks gained more civil rights, including the right to vote.
    The tensions exploded during the gubernatorial election of 1906 in which M. Hoke Smith and Clark Howell competed for the Democratic nomination. Both candidates were looking for ways to disenfranchise African-American voters because they each felt that the Black vote could throw the election to the other candidate.
    Hoke Smith was a former publisher of the Atlanta Journal and Clark Howell was the editor of the Atlanta Constitution. Both candidates used their influence to incite white voters and help spread the fear that whites may not be able to maintain the current social order.
    The Atlanta Georgian and the Atlanta News began publishing stories about white women being molested and 🤬 by Black men. These allegations were reported multiple times and were largely false.
    On Sept. 22, 1906, Atlanta newspapers reported four alleged assaults on local white women. Soon, some 10,000 white men and boys began gathering, beating, and stabbing Blacks. It is estimated that there were between 25 and 40 African-American deaths; it was confirmed that there were only two white deaths.

    Greenwood , Tulsa, Oklahoma “Black Wall Street” (May 31 – June 1, 1921)

    During the oil boom of the 1910s, the area of northeast Oklahoma around Tulsa flourished, including the Greenwood neighborhood, which came to be known as “the Black Wall Street.” The area was home to several lawyers, realtors, doctors, and prominent black Businessmen, many of them multimillionaires.
    Greenwood boasted a variety of thriving businesses such as grocery stores, clothing stores, barbershops, banks, hotels, cafes, movie theaters, two newspapers, and many contemporary homes. Greenwood residents enjoyed many luxuries that their white neighbors did not, including indoor plumbing and a remarkable school system. The dollar circulated 36 to 100 times, sometimes taking a year for currency to leave the community.
    The neighborhood was destroyed during a riot that broke out after a group men from Greenwood attempted to protect a young Black man from a lynch mob. On the night of May 31, 1921, a mob called for the lynching of 🤬 Rowland, a Black man who shined shoes, after reports spread that on the previous day he had assaulted Sarah Page, a white woman, in the elevator she operated in a downtown building.
    In the early morning hours of June 1, 1921, Black Tulsa was looted, firebombed from the air and burned down by white rioters. The governor declared martial law, and National Guard troops arrived in Tulsa. Guardsmen assisted firemen in putting out fires, removed abducted African-Americans from the hands of white vigilantes, and imprisoned all Black Tulsans, not already confined, into a prison camp at the Convention Hall and the Fairgrounds, some for as long as eight days.
    In the wake of the violence, 35 city blocks lay in charred ruins, over 800 people were treated for injuries and estimated 300 deaths occurred.

    Chicago Race Riots (1919)

    The “Red Summer” of 1919 marked the culmination of steadily growing tensions surrounding the great migration of African-Americans from the rural South to the cities of the North during World War I. Chicago was one of the northern cities that experienced violent race riots during that period.
    Drawn by the city’s meatpacking houses, railway companies and steel mills, the African-American population in Chicago skyrocketed from 44,000 in 1910 to 235,000 in 1930. When the war ended in late 1918, thousands of white servicemen returned home from fighting in Europe to find that their jobs in factories, warehouses and mills had been filled by newly arrived Southern Blacks or immigrants.
    On July 27, 1919, an African-American teenager drowned in Lake Michigan after he challenged the unofficial segregation of Chicago’s beaches and was stoned by a group of white youths.
    His death, and the police refusal to arrest the men who caused it, sparked a week of race rioting between Black and white Chicagoans, with Black neighborhoods receiving the worst of the damage.
    When the riots ended on Aug. 3, 15 whites and 23 Blacks had been killed and more than 500 people injured. An additional 1,000 Black families had lost their homes when they were torched by rioters.
    President Woodrow Wilson castigated the “white race” as “the aggressor” in the Chicago uprising.

    Rosewood Massacre (1923)

    Rosewood was a quiet, self-sufficient whistle-stop on the Seaboard Air Line Railway in Florida. By 1900 the population in Rosewood had become predominantly African-American. Some people farmed or worked in local businesses, including a sawmill in nearby Sumner, a predominantly white town.
    In 1920, Rosewood Blacks had three churches, a school, a large Masonic Hall, turpentine mill, a sugarcane mill, a baseball team and a general store (a second one was white owned). The village had about two dozen plank two-story homes, some other small houses, as well as several small unoccupied plank structures.
    Spurred by unsupported accusations that a white woman in Sumner had been beaten and possibly 🤬 by a Black drifter, white men from a number of nearby towns lynched a Rosewood resident. When the Black citizens defended themselves against further attack, several hundred whites combed the countryside hunting Black people and burning almost every structure in Rosewood.
    Survivors hid for several days in nearby swamps and were evacuated by train and car to larger towns. Although state and local authorities were aware of the violence, they made no arrests for the activities in Rosewood. At least six Blacks and two whites were killed, and the town was abandoned by Black residents during the attacks. None ever returned.

    In the back of my mind im not even mad at them rioting....what else can we do.As a people man we are tired, you can only be peaceful for so long...Its so much i wanna say about what you just posted @Blaquehoney01 but i just dont have the words right now.SMH


    I hear you. The sad thing is that it wasn't us who did the rioting. It was white people who came at us and our neighborhoods because we were prospering and doing our own thing without them, and they did not like it. So many white people want to put us down and call us animals talking about what we can't do, but they are the first ones trying to destroy anything positive we try to build for ourselves. Can you imagine what we would have now if they would leave us alone??

    Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Ezell Ford, etc would not have to happen. This protest in St. Louis would not be happening right now.

    I don't know where you are, but my goals have been to try to start building again like our people did in the past. I have the same anger, and didn't know what to do with it. This is something we MUST do. It is not an option because we have to be ready and have our numbers up when The Mikes, Trayvons, ets happen. If Black people are going to be here from the Caribbean, they need to realize that once they are here, they are in the same boat and are looked at in the same way. When things happen, we have to be ready to push back. As for the people who holler about the "Black on Black" crime, if we could take care of ourselves, we might even see a decrease in that, too. We just have to stop thinking of things as individuals and more as a group and get it together.

    What? We gotta get permission from the US to do that? Can't just do whatever we need to do for the process and send it straight to the UN, bypass the US?
