TULSA STATE SENATE MAKES TEACHING BLACK WALL STREET MANDATORY

Senate Bill 1381 by Sen. Judy Eason McIntyre, D-Tulsa, and Rep. Jabar Shumate, D-Tulsa, passed by a vote of 33-6 and now heads to the House.
"School districts shall ensure that information concerning the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921 is presented in high school courses in U.S. history or Oklahoma history," the bill states.
The measure would be effective July 1. McIntyre said no cost would be associated with it.

The silver lining in some of the highly visible murders of black people is that identifying them as a white generated race problem makes it more blatant to white people that more black history needs to be taught to white children.

Dylann Roof is a prime example of what can happen when race based ignorance finally gets to the extremist in their midst.

I am glad the these two Black Americans that wrote the Bill were able to get this through their Senate.

May the idea of telling the true tale of Black American History spread across the nation.
