As I read through the comments of many prominent white journalists now finally naming the president as a racist, I’m left wondering… what took so long?

We can all go back-over our lives and see what happens when we react, versus when we respond when confronted with something that makes the very hair on the back of our neck stand up and makes our blood boil.
Most people don’t know that Tate Brady was present during the massacre of 1921…Tate Brady was also a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Nathan Bedford Forrest, the General Secretary of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, was also a Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan. As we see, the history runs deep in this city and truth should be told.
Actually, no but I knew deep down with the Centennial of the (1921 Tulsa/Greenwood Massacre) coming soon, that something would take place. How can we reach 100 years of the massacre and Tulsa still honors Tate Brady?
