Ep. 130 - The Massacre

Normally I release new episodes every Monday, but I'm releasing this special episode early in honor of Juneteenth. In this episode I discuss one of the ugliest racist incidents in American history, the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. It started with allegations of a black man assaulting a white woman. That led to an angry mob of white Tulsa residents burning the prosperous black neighborhood of Greenwood to the ground.
