  • State Board of Education votes to demote Tulsa Public Schools for violating CRT ban

    07/28/2022 9:21:51 PM PDT · by LouAvul · 11 replies
    TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — The Oklahoma State Board of Education voted to demote Tulsa Public Schools after violating HB 1775, which bans the teaching of critical race theory in Oklahoma. In a 4-2 vote, the board lowered TPS to "accreditation with warning," a more serious penalty than the recommended "accreditation with deficiency." Gov. Stitt expressed concern about the violation of the law in early July. That concern stems from a complaint sent to the Department of Education by a teacher from Memorial High School who had to take some mandatory courses, which she said, "includes statements that specifically shame white...

    BIXBY, Okla. (AP) — A Black business leader and community activist who joined Tulsa civic leaders in fighting then-President Donald Trump's plan to hold a campaign rally on Juneteenth in a city known as the site of one of the nation's deadliest white-on-Black mob attacks has been killed in what police describe as a domestic incident at her home. Investigators were trying Thursday to develop a timeline that led to Sherry Gamble Smith and her husband, Martin Everett Smith, being fatally wounded in their home in the Tulsa suburb of Bixby, Oklahoma. Police dispatched on a call about a reported...

    The Daily Mail has revealed shocking text messages from Hunter Biden showing him using racial slurs and repeatedly using the n-word with his white lawyer in conversations. The news comes just days after his father, President Joe Biden, gave an emotional speech on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, in which he condemned racism. Corporate attorney George Mesires, who is white, is allegedly referred to in the text messages multiple times as being black or referenced as a variation of the n-word.

    Joe Biden Neglects D-Day; Tweets About Tulsa Race Massacre President Joe Biden tweeted a video Sunday of his meeting last week with survivors of the Tulsa Race Massacre, but did not mention that June 6 was also the anniversary of D-Day, the U.S-led invasion of Normandy in the Second World War. Biden, who appeared to confuse D-Day with Pearl Harbor Day last year on the campaign trail, tweeted: “I met with survivors of the Tulsa Massacre this week to help fill the silence. Because in silence, wounds deepen. And, as painful as it is, only in remembrance do wounds heal.”...

    For many people, Tom Hanks may be the most trusted person in America. The Hollywood star, born in Concord and raised in Oakland, has become more outspoken recently regarding societal issues, imploring Americans to wear masks following his own COVID-19 diagnosis and hosting Joe Biden's inauguration day TV special. Today, he continued that spirit of social engagement with a New York Times op-ed deploring the lack of education surrounding the Tulsa Race Massacre. In the essay, Hanks recounts his upbringing in Oakland, commenting on both the city's diversity and integration, as well as the polarization and division. He notes that...

And while darkness can hide much, it can never erase what happened. That’s why we’re here: to shine a light, to make sure America knows the story in full.”The Tulsa riots noted by President Biden are a painful episode among many acts of racist violence in the United States. One of the largely hidden parts of the history of this event is the Afro-idealist response of an...

    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...

    Speaking in Tulsa this afternoon, Old White Joe declared: “Terrorism from white supremacy is the most lethal threat to the homeland today.” You know what they say about the Big Lie: it gains acceptance through relentless repetition. That’s certainly what’s happening with the claim that “white supremacy” is the biggest terror threat the nation faces today. A bit of reality: It wasn’t “white supremacists” who rioted all last summer in Portland, Seattle, Kenosha, Wisconsin, New York, Atlanta, Washington, DC, and numerous other cities that I have already forgotten, and who are still at it in Portland, and casting a long...

    President Joe Biden delayed the start of his speech marking the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre on Tuesday by asking two girls in the audience if they were getting ice cream. The commander-in-chief noticed the two youngsters off the side of the speech and ran over before beginning his remarks. 'I just had to make sure the two girls got ice cream when this is over. Almost five years old coming to hear the president speak. My lord. In my faith we call that purgatory,' he said before heading back to the podium.

    Tulsa (AFP) - In Tulsa, the city that still bears the scars of a 1921 racial massacre, African-American residents are eagerly awaiting the arrival of President Joe Biden on Tuesday, hoping he will hear their call for financial reparations. "I just want him to feel our pain," said local activist Kristi Williams. The Democratic leader, who has benefited from a strong support base among Black voters, will attend Tuesday's commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre, one of the worst episodes of racial violence in US history. Williams, who is descended from some of the massacre victims,...

    A century ago, my hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, was engulfed in a riot, also called a massacre, that left an entire swath of the city known as the “Black Wall Street” burned, its residents either killed or displaced. One hundred years later, I want to look at our history and then forge ahead to our future. I believe that the future leads right to success. We’ve talked about the problem for a century now. I believe it’s time the soul of a nation is healed. When people look at the past, we often do things out of tradition, like beautiful...

Newton Gun Club, Anubis Arms Gun Club, and the Panther Special Operations Command as well other organizations from across the country are expected to participate in the protest. "Our hope is to try to galvanize a community, educate around the position of Second Amendment rights, and hopefully be a vehicle to more or less unify the African American community," co-founder of the Newton Gun Club in Dallas, Texas,...
