The black financial district was burned down by white supremacists this week in 1921, just like 911 of 2001.

magine a police officer killed your son, daughter, husband, or wife. What would be your first reaction?

Let us get all the facts!

Look at a photo of George Floyd begging, “I Can’t Breathe” before you return to your normal life. I summed up the courage to view half of the video yesterday. Warning — -It can cause PTSD.

Ninety-nine years ago, this week, the black financial district was bombed by a white supremacy group, and the state of Oklahoma and the US government did nothing.

We can start a conversation on violence, 911 of 2001, and Black Wall Street of 1921 We will never forget.

We can do better

  • Listen to understand and practice radical empathy.
  • Ask questions and stop assuming
  • Check our insecurities and our values
  • Put our love in action
  • My son or daughter is yours
  • Let us protect one another.

It starts with me. It starts with you.

Help yourself grow.
