93 years ago on this day May 31, 1921, the Tulsa Race Riot began. It is marked as the deadliest race riot in the history of the U.S. & destroyed what was known as, Black Wall Street.

Black Wall Street was the wealthiest black community in the United States, full of black owned businesses consisting of: 

movie theaters 
dental offices
independent newspapers
restaurants
grocery stores
a bank
post offices
a bus system
schools
airplanes
law offices 
its own hospital.

Racial tension boiled over on May 30, 1921 when a white woman accused a black boy of sexual assault. Late that night, a mob of nearly 10,000 white men launched an all out assault on Black Wall Street systematically burning down every home & business. 

Attacks came from both the ground and the sky as the mobs used planes from World War I to drop firebombs and shoot at residents. African Americans that were captured were held in internment camps around the city by local police & National Guard units.

Blacks who were injured during the 16 hour attack couldn’t seek medical care because the mobs torched the only black hospital in the city.

The attack left about 10,000 African Americans homeless and 35 city blocks burned to the ground. In total, 1,256 houses & 191 businesses (including churches, a middle school & a hospital) were burned. 

In the aftermath, it was estimated that 300 African Americans were killed and many of their bodies were buried in unmarked graves.

The Tulsa Race Riot was taught for the 1st time in Tulsa public schools in 2012. #NeverForget #BlackWallStreet #BlackHistory

Black bodies have been dehumanized since our horrific introduction with European culture and white supremacy. The white gaze has despised, violated and objectified the Black female body. The narrow European (and Black) standards of beauty have to be dismantled all together. Not all Black women have big hips and big butts. Not all have small waists. This photo set, though only limited by the amount of photos that could be uploaded, attempts to broaden that standard of beauty to include Black women of all shapes and sizes.

Following the disappearance of three teenagers who live in an Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank on Thursday, the Israeli army began using the hashtag #BringBackOurBoys. Their appropriation of the hashtag used by the campaign to help find the hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped in April has been sharply criticized. Palestinian human rights activists have turned the tables, using the hashtag to shed light on Israel’s killing, imprisonment, and torture of Palestinian children. Approximately 200 Palestinian children are currently in Israeli prisons and over 1,400 Palestinian children have been killed by #Israel since 2000.Learn more: bit.ly/1qWVI8X

Some time between Sunday 6/22/14 5:45pm and Monday 6/23/14 2:00pm my car was stolen from my gated complex. It’s not a great car, but it’s MY car and I cannot afford to get another one! The police so far have been absolutely no help, so I’m turning to tumblr. If silly posts can get to a hundred thousand notes, please make this important one get there as well!

If you live in Sacramento, Citrus Heights, Foothill Farms, Roseville, or any surrounding area PLEASE be on the lookout for my car! It has several bumper stickers(one in each corner of the back window, and two on the bumper itself) that should make it easily identifiable, but also a large dent on the back passenger side door(no picture, I’m sorry!).

The car is a 1995 faded red Honda Accord Wagon. Licenses plate number is 6GWH415. If you spot my car, please contact the Sacramento highway patrol (916)861-1300
