 OUTLINE


Oil-wealthy  Tulsans refuse  Dr.  Kerr's  request  to  compensate  Greenwood  and  join  the  Ku  Klux  Klan  by  the  thousands  to  justify  their  terrible crimes  in  Greenwood  by  the  Klan's  racialist  doctrines:  

Having no honour in the armigerious sense and valuing every consideration of life only in terms of money, the nouveau riche Tulsa civic leadership adamantly refused to pay the full compensation demanded by Dr. Kerr  for the wrongful deaths of the Greenwood Blacks and property damage inflicted by the City of Tulsa upon the Greenwood Black Community as city policy.   The only interest of Tulsa's civic leadership was to convert Greenwood into a rail,  industrial,  and warehouse district for their own profit.  

'T-Towne'  Tulsan  hunting  Blacks:

Gun  control  is  desperately  needed  to  protect  Blac ks  from  poor whites  

Not a one of these prominent Tulsa oil barons,  bankers,  community leaders and 'T-Towne' boosters  ever  repented of their  terrible  racial  crimes.  They were concerned only with 'bad publicity' which might hurt Tulsa's economic growth. First  things first…..  

The enormous economic power and political leverage of Tulsa's oil establishment has always managed to suppress much public knowledge of the 1921 Tulsa Race War …  or the complete Ku Klux Klan political takeover of Oklahoma after the November 1923 impeachment of Oklahoma's courageous anti-Klan Governor Jack Walton orchestrated by Richard Lloyd Jones.  Sanitised Oklahoma public school State 'histories' conveniently 'forget' these facts:  Some eighty-four years later, block, after block of Tulsa's Greenwood Black district  are still filled  with empty lots, 'ghost' driveways and sidewalks leading to the rubble of weed-incrusted foundations ... where middle-class Black homes once stood  

Now that Dr. Kerr is  dead … does anybody in Tulsa even care ?  

Tulsa 'social page' society women join Klan to social climb:

Tulsa may no longer be 'Oil Capitol' but it clearly  is 

'The  Social  Climbing   Capitol  of  the  World'  

Oil-rich Tulsa is one of the wealthiest communities in America in terms of number of multimillionaires per capita.   Tulsa counts numerous billionaires amongst its citizens….  

Tulsa is an American 'Tale of Two Cities':  Newly wealthy oil millionaires tearing down middle-class housing in  white south Tulsa to build huge 'gold coast' vanity faux 'French provincial' mansions (i.e., ‘mansionising’) for their 1.67 child families   ...   whilst areas of Tulsa's Greenwood Black district in north Tulsa are so impoverished and so neglected that, even, today large areas of Greenwood and Black north Tulsa still lack the basic necessities of running water and city sewage service:   

The Parable of Dives and Lazarus come to life  in  Oklahoma….  

Wearing  Dallas-styled  'big  hair' fashions  (the better to hid jug ears),  plastered with make-up  and designer jewellery (the 'real thing' not paste),  dressed in furs in tropical sultry Tulsa  and designer outfits more appropriate  for women one-third   of  their age;  Tulsa's social-page  'GREEN COUNTRY' 'society women' love play-acting  at being an elite 'high society':  Living extravagant lives of conspicuous consumption, Tulsa's common nouveau riche 'social leaders' play Lady Bountiful   at their elite 'league' charities     enjoying  making  lesser  folks  come hat-in-hand  to receive crumbs  of patronisingly  dispensed 'charity'.    

Tulsa's arriviste 'high society' even throws ostentatious 'opera debutante balls' … shamelessly modelled after Charleston, South Carolina's St. Cecilia Society, the Philadelphia Assembly, or the Baltimore Cotillion … for their 'GREEN COUNTRY'  Klan-descended daughters.  Tulsa's 'oil elite' even has an affectedly supercilious 'fox hunt' … in the middle of Oklahoma cowboy country:  

The  oil-rich  descendants of Tulsa's night riders  chasing  after foxes on blood horses having pedigrees better than their  own….  

Ku Klux  Klan take-over of Oklahoma: A yokel version  of  the Third Reich:

After  Richard  Lloyd  Jones  orchestrated  the  November  1923  impeachment  of  Oklahoma's  courageous  anti-Klan  Governor  Jack  Walton,  the  Klan  seized  complete  political  power  in  Oklahoma

'GREEN  COUNTRY'  at  prayer ?  

After the 1921 Race War, Tulsa's 'elite' 'GREEN COUNTRY' socialites even joined the Women's Klan to social  climb:   

Tulsa  is the only place on earth  where Klan membership  confers 'social  prestige'….  

Despite their pretensions to 'social eliteness',  Tulsa oil nouveaux riches are primarily disinherited  Southern poor whites who came to Oklahoma during the 1890's land grabs of 'free' Indian Land sponsored by the American Federal Government.  After oil was discovered, Tulsa oilmen frequently swindled Oklahoma's naive Indians out of their allotted lands, minerals, oil and gas rights ... often with a drink of whiskey.  This  is  not honest wealth  honourably  obtained…. 

During that very summer of 1921,  over six thousand leading citizens of Tulsa joined the new Ku  Klux Klan to justify to their own consciences the terrible  racial  crimes which  they had committed in Greenwood by the Klan's doctrines of racial hatred:   As hooded Klansmen Tulsa's oil magnates,  business,  civic leaders and all the builders, boosters, and back-slappers   of 'T-Towne' nightly  burned Jesus' Cross in renewed racial  hatred of the friendly   Greenwood Black people  on  the hills  surrounding  Tulsa….   

Rubble  of  Greenwood:

Tulsans refuse compensation and don't care about the Greenwood Blacks

But  do  you ?
