Issue: President Biden’s address to mark the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre.
The Tulsa massacre happened because white people blamed blacks for Dick Rowland’s alleged assault on Sarah Page (“Those who are more interested in politics than progress.” David Marcus, June 1).
Instead of seeing Dick Rowland as a person, they saw him as a black man and therefore blamed the black men for the attack.
President Biden condemned what happened, but he is promoting critical race theory – the ideology that pushes us to judge people by which racial group they belong to.
He is bringing back the same thought-provoking process that led to the Tulsa Massacre. Biden should heed the wisdom of Martin Luther King Jr., who said we should judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.
Great article by Marcus. There is no way for Democrats to stay in the House, Senate and presidency without reining in racism.
Biden and his boss are fueling racial tensions. They all know this. It is in their DNA.
Democrats should really get a museum called the “Democratic Party Museum of Racial Discrimination”—one with a Biden wing.
The Tulsa massacre of 1921 is a blot on our history, and Biden should have respected the survivors. Yet his speech was politically rhetorical and clearly misleading.
However, is he inclined to remember the largest mass lynching in American history of innocent Italian Americans in New Orleans in 1891?
Will he talk about the 3,000 American Indians killed during the forced displacement on the Trail of Tears? Will he honor the memory of innocent Japanese Americans forced into internment camps during World War II?
Will he invite the family of a fallen police officer to the White House, as he has done for a black man killed by a deranged police officer?
I do not think so. It is not politically justified. To quote another: Your hypocrisy insults my intelligence.
I keep waiting for the Unifier-in-Chief to arrive in the Oval Office, but I see my “divider” talking about all the systemic diseases that have always been part and parcel of America’s black history.
Wouldn’t it be great if Biden went to Tulsa on the 100th anniversary of the race carnage and used the events as a starting point for healing and growth — and not remembering how bad we are for each other? It is using race to keep us apart.
They missed our chance to connect with each other.
The time has come for the Democrats and the liberal media to stop tearing us apart because their idea of America is false.
As Marcus saw it, Biden’s Tulsa speech was divisive and pessimistic.
He wrote that for Biden, it is all about sin, confession and repentance. But I still don’t see any mercy or forgiveness from the left.
The agenda of the Left is controversial, hateful and insistent. I see no cooperative spirit, no trust-building, and no love for my neighbor.
It’s crazy to hear Biden talking about something that happened long ago, like we can change history. Yet last summer we didn’t see a word about the riots, protests and loot in our cities.
We could all discuss things that happened whatever we wanted, but it’s pointless. It just brings bad things, and that’s exactly what it wants to do – constantly reminding us of the days we were wrong and creating a rift between people.
He is not bringing us together. He is destroying the country.
It was a good idea for Biden to give a speech about improving race relations.
It would have been nice for him to explain how he has changed since his days in the Senate, when he was promoting racist activities.
