Something certainly has to give. I am not 100% sure the Tulsa Real Estate Fund is the answer, but I do admire the effort.
Folks who doubted the authenticity of the BLM movement are beginning to wonder if they should join them. Infiltrators who care only about being paid are pretending to be a part of the movement but are only creating more tension and chaos. Folks are being shipped
When I was in elementary school, I couldn’t find history books on Slavery. Regrettably, I was left to imagine what Slave life entailed on plantations in the Big House and in the fields of burning hot sun - the places where Black captives, stolen from the shores of Africa, endured their lives and their fate for generations.
It’s hard for people to believe that it was GOD’s WILL for enslavement such as ours to fall on a “race” of people who became proverbs and bywords in the “Four Corners of the
