Skip to comments.Biden's Disgraceful Exploitation of the Tulsa Race Massacre

This may shock and amaze you if your blinders are on, but President Joe Biden is not only not a uniter; he is actively trying to divide Americans on race -- and other issues -- purely for raw political power. There is no other plausible explanation.
During former President Donald Trump's entire presidency and ever since, we've been bombarded daily with the narrative that Trump is divisive and a racist. His political opponents and the media distorted his words, such as those he said in the aftermath of the Charlottesville attacks, to paint him as sympathetic to white supremacists. That was always absurd, but it is now largely accepted as conventional wisdom.
Of course, the real ploy was to demonize and marginalize all Trump supporters, not just Trump. The implication was that anyone who would support such a bigot must be a bigot. Truth be told, this nicely fit the left's decades-long smear of Republicans as racist as evidenced by their ideology.
Before you scoff at this as wanton hyperbole, consider that I'm not alone in my thoughts. A Rasmussen Reports poll released June 1 revealed that 39% of likely voters believe race relations have deteriorated since Biden's election.
Consider also the left's almost-farcical crusade to tie conservative policies to racism. Examples abound: Conservatives favor border enforcement because of their racial animus against Mexicans entering the United States; conservatives are insensitive to examples of police misconduct against African Americans because they're racist; they favor tax cuts to further enrich the wealthy and disadvantage minorities; they promote school choice initiatives to keep minorities down; and -- everyone's favorite -- they support voter ID measures and other laws in the name of ensuring election integrity but really to suppress the black vote.
If you think I'm exaggerating, note that CNN's Chris Cuomo suggested there is a "through-line" from the Tulsa race massacre to Republicans' election bills. He added that the GOP is "intensifying its efforts to strip people of color of their rights to vote, the boldest attempt since the era of Jim Crow." I wonder what American leftists would say about the fact that 46 of the 47 European democracies reportedly have election voter ID laws. Are they all racist too?
There is, after all, a method to the left's maddening-ness. Since the Obama presidency, leftists have identified white supremacy as rampant and as a major threat to national security. They maintain that white supremacists are legion and are domestic terrorists. In his speech in Tulsa, ostensibly to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the race riots and atrocities against African Americans in that city, Biden underscored this point with the preposterous declaration that white supremacy is the (SET ITAL) most (END ITAL) dangerous threat to America today. Are you kidding me, President Biden? Have you no shame?
That's not all Biden said in Tulsa to stir the racial pot, making clear that his primary purpose was not to honor the lives and misfortunes of the black victims in Tulsa in 1921. He disgracefully politicized the entire event, using it not for racial reconciliation but racial agitation -- and as a platform to vilify his political opponents.
Biden said: "(Y)oung black entrepreneurs are just as capable of succeeding, given the chance, as white entrepreneurs are, but they don't have lawyers. ... They don't have accountants. ... (Y)ou turn on the stations ... And I don't know many commercials you'll see ... two to three out of five have mixed-race couples in them. That's not by accident. They're selling soap, man."
Trump haters can say what they want about Trump, but did he call his accusers racist -- ever? It would have been more justified than their ubiquitous claim that we're all racist for the simple reason that they turn everything into a race issue. They also reject colorblindness as a societal aspiration. They insist we look at and treat one another differently based on our race -- not as unique individuals God created.
This insanity has got to stop. I know I write about this issue often, but as long as the left keeps fraudulently smearing us as racists, we have got to fight back. These vile slanders must not go unanswered.
People have to call Biden out on his flagrant race-baiting. They must quit depicting Biden as a nice and innocent man when he is abusing his powerful position and his bully pulpit to pit us against each other and severely damage racial relations. Enough is enough.
I’ve got a simple retort. Eff Biden and eff the Democrat party.
That’s not all Biden said in Tulsa to stir the racial pot, making clear that his primary purpose was not to honor the lives and misfortunes of the black victims in Tulsa in 1921.
If Tulsa was so important, why wasn’t it an issue until 2020?
Hell, one of the few times he ‘campaigned’ he told black people at a church that a black guy invented the lightbulb. And now they’re suprprised?
They have access to funds. Misusing them is not my problem.
“Over the last five years, Matthews says the Centennial Commission has raised more than $30 million, including $20 million for the construction of the Greenwood Rising museum. Other funds have been raised for art projects, commemoration activities and renovations to the Greenwood Cultural Center.
But some of Tulsa’s Black residents question whether the money for the construction of the Greenwood Rising museum in an increasingly gentrified part of the city could have been better spent helping Black descendants of the massacre or residents of the city’s predominantly Black north side several miles away from Greenwood.”
Now we've got that race pimp jesse carJackson here demanding free stuff. The city of Tulsa has appointed a commission with jackson saying until tulsa makes it right, they're being oppressed.
Black people. Always about the free stuffs.
Black people........ Africanization to revert to the freedom to live a lawless mud hut village existence where your betters sell you into slavery.
I know, I know there are countless black Americans who have assimilated and do not agree with the out of control corruption that rules “Black America”
I may be wrong, but I never have seen Biden cuddle, embrace or stroke a Black child.
I am be wrong.
Surprise! All democrats just seek more power over you and I.
Obama is running the country; O-Biden just reads what is written for him.
It’s the same old Liberal ‘getting it both ways’ con..
Let minorities shake down taxpayers in the billions of dollars all the while denying and ignoring that all minorities in the US are beneficiaries of vastly improved opportunities, wholly integrated policies, an extensive, varied, inclusive and growing ‘across-the-board’ favored status in education/employment/social services/legal consideration/lending policies...etc.
When you are being stalked by a 700 lb. Bengal tiger and you’re throwing T-bone steaks at him.....where does it end?
I used to live in Tulsa. I first read about the race riot in a book at the Tulsa County Library back in 1970. It was not a hidden event as people simply had other things to worry about than a race riot in the past.
In 1974, I worked with a white man who, in the 1930s or 1940s, spent lots of his free time in a brothel on Archer and Greenwood. He never mentioned the riot at all and it appears Greenwood was coming back at that time.
