SORT BY Relevancy
Greenwood, Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa, was the type of community that African Americans are still, today, attempting to reclaim and rebuild. It was modern, majestic, sophisticated and unapologetically Black. Tragically, it was also the site of one of the bloodiest and most horrendous race riots (and acts of terrorism) that the United States has ever experienced.
It has been ninty-two years since as many as 3000 African Americans lost their lives and more than 9,000 were left homeless when the small town was attacked, looted and literally burned to the ground on June 1, 1921. It’s impossible, however, to realize what was lost in Greenwood, which was affectionately known as "Black Wall Street."
The Greenwood community seems almost imagined when we examine it through a historical lens. The oil booms of the early 1900’s had many moving to Tulsa for a shot at quick economic gains and high life, and African Americans hoped to prosper from the new industry as well. Tulsa, like many cities and towns throughout the US, was hostilely segregated, with African Americans settling into the northern region of the city. As we often saw before integration, Blacks in the area created entrepreneurial opportunities for themselves, which housed an impressive business center that included banks, hotels, cafes, clothiers, movie theaters, and contemporary homes. Greenwood residents enjoyed many luxuries that their White neighbors did not, including indoor plumbing and a remarkable school system that superiorly educated Black children.This is our history

We cant fix the problem pretending we don’t see it. There is a secret agenda of blaming and complaining and creating soft black males and not men. We are losing the battle but the war isn't over. Always remember, Successful black people will work with people who are good at doing what they can't do and add them to their team. They find their weaknesses and reinforce them with people who can strengthen them.
Successful black people don't worry about hoarding their wisdom, knowledge, and resources but they do the opposite. They train people to be their best in what they love to do and can do easily. They develop people and add them to their team and inner circle. They network with them and follow them. They learn from others as well as help them to improve. And in order to fight the monkeys we must come together and rid ourselves of the bitches and crab in the bucket people in our lives.
