Sunday Discussion: How A 1921 Mob Destroyed America’s Richest Black Neighborhood

Yeah, we know President Trump had his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma over the weekend.  But, do you know about the 1921 mob in Tulsa?  What happened in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1921? A mob of 10,000 whites descended on Greenwood, the richest black neighborhood in America, after a black teenager on his way to a blacks-only bathroom stepped on the foot of a white elevator operator. The same flimsy pretext was used for a town’s destruction, including the Florida Rosewood Massacre only two years later.

Watch what happened from the Weird History YouTube channel below.
