6. And sometimes, barely even then.

Did you ever hear of the massacre in Tulsa Ok in the early 20s? The river was filled with the bodies of those people murdered and I never heard about it until I was in my 30s when I met the publisher of the black newspaper there.

It's very interesting that it has always been referred to as "The Tulsa Race Riots" which makes it sound as if it was the black people rioting, not the white. It should have called racial genocide by whites.
