President Donald J. Trump is intentional when it comes to masking his racism. He creates the illusion that he’s for racial unity by using American symbols of liberty without delivering the whole history.
Mayor Bynum has the power pursuant to Title 8, Tulsa Revised Ordinances, Section 200 and the Oklahoma Emergency Management Act, 63 O.S. § 683.3, to place a moratorium on large indoor gatherings, or to at least limit their size. This is a public health issue and not a political one. Lives are on the line.
“As we head into the 100th anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, a horrific and racist event, let’s make no mistake about it: our leaders did not care about Black lives then, and our leaders do not care about Black lives now. If they did, they would not be rolling out the red carpet, celebrating and capitulating to the most racist president we’ve had in our modern history,” Kojo Asamoa-Caesar says.
Although the organizers for Sunday’s rally were separate from Saturday’s organizers, Sunday’s reiterated the same list of demands to Tulsa’s Mayor G.T. Bynum.
