Tulsa, OK protests 

there's literally nothing you can say about people blocking roads when they literally put highways through the former Black Wall Street to prevent it from ever being rebuilt. Not only did they burn it down, they salted the ground.

Tulsa, OK protests 

I get emotional about my hometown and I probably always will. They are literally still working to locate the spot where they buried the bodies from 99 years ago.

Tulsa, OK protests 

I wish I had taken pictures that I could show you, but where there was a flourishing black neighborhood 99 years ago, there's now a racetrack of highways, and a big chunk taken up by a university branch campus. You can see the murals commemorating black life in Tulsa and past Juneteenths nearby.

some of these I've seen and some I haven't, but they're all making me feel some things this morning.
