Should The Black Wall Street Holocaust Victims Receive Reparations?

There have been some reparations paid for specific offenses perpetrated against certain groups of blacks historically. For instance, reparations were granted to the Chicago Police Torture Survivors.

I feel that the solutions made were satisfactory in that example and I recommend all readers to look into that particular story if you're serious about fighting for reparations for the wrongdoings of our government. Also, the Tuskegee airmen and their families who were unknowingly infected with syphillis in an unethical scientific experiment were given reparations as well.

As you should all know by now, the Black Wall Street Holocaust (or the so called Tulsa Race Riots) is a well documented historical event that needs to be addressed or else this will continue to fester as an unhealing wound on the face of American history.

The families who lost their homes, lands, businesses, and relatives through murder or separation should receive reparations just as the families of the New Orleans Flood Holocaust (better known as Hurricane Katrina) should be given reparations for all the systematic atrocities they had to endure.

The living survivors and their descendants of the Black Wall Street Holocaust (or the so called Tulsa Race Riots) should receive reparations just like all the families across the USA who suffered from the actions of the Iran/Contra Scandal that flooded the streets (primarily black neighborhoods) with crack cocaine in the 80's so that the government could afford to send weapons to Iran.

It goes without saying that the war on drugs was born out of that scandal and still affects the Black population today via unequal prison sentencing and prisons built for profits due to the cheap labor provided by a majority of Black inmates.

Summarily, the bottomline is that this country has taken baby steps to acknowledge the atrocities it has committed against it's African American citizens and this country has taken baby steps to right those wrongs in comparison to the mountain of injustices that need to be corrected; that's if anyone is to say with a straight face that America is the greatest nation on earth.

At a recent function in Cleveland, Dr. Michael Carter, Sr., national president of Black Wall Street USA, said "Even though the line is long to reparate our ancestors for inhumane and ungodly acts by our government...we must continue this effort and make those responsible pay."

The Need for Reparations for the Tulsa Oklahoma Survivors

It was the worst race riot in the history of the United States; however, most people have never heard of it. Tulsa, Oklahoma, 1921, in less than 24 hours the prosperous African-American section of Greenwood, also known as “Black Wall Street,” was completely destroyed. An estimated 300 were killed and over 10,000 people displaced, as a 42 square block area of their homes and businesses were burned to the ground by a white mob that had been deputized by the sheriff.

From the data gathered there are only 45 survivors still alive today. This is a story about the struggle for the soul of America and efforts to right a wrong that is long past due.

We honor the great attorney for the Supreme court Case in 2006, Dr. Olgetree and Bishop Otis Clark  a survivor before he passed in 2012.

The  diabolical  act of  race war reaped destruction  on American soil, and just giving the Tula Black Wall Street survivors a metal to wear  is not a replacement for the destroyed properties they owned, and the life’s that were lost.

The reason the survivors need to have reparation’s is because it is rightly due for these reasons and violations: their human rights, property owner’s value, hate crime, civil rights, historic preservation, the economic value of their business.

The word reparations means: the making of amends, restitution, redress, compensation, recompense, repayment, atonement for a wrong one has done to the survivors of Tulsa Oklahoma and even the people that stood by and watched are as guilt because they did not do anything to stop the crimes as they were done.

America has also benefited off our ancestors backs of slavery against their will, they were  compensated with rape, torture, and lynchings for 400 years, and have not granted reparations as the Jews and other nations America has chosen to compensate showing favor .

This country America would not be where it is today if it weren’t for the slaves, and the people of Tulsa Oklahoma and their lineage .The slaves caused the masters to prosper as did the black  people of Tulsa Oklahoma prospered Oklahoma and their wealth spread around the world as it  played a large role in the GDP in which Wall Street prosper!

The story the Trail of Tears is validated that the Black freedman and Black Indians were on the same journey together from the south to Oklahoma, and we the descendants of those Black Indians and Freedman in the treaty that has been written of 1866 that the Black freedman and Black Indians have the same rights as the Native American Tribes that they cohabitated with due to the slave trade with the Indians during the 1800’s. Dr Claude Anderson has this case in the supreme court fighting this fact currently.

Black Wall Street USA Announces Prisoner Release and Re-entry National Committee

OAKLAND - Black Wall Street USA Announces the formation of the Prisoner Release and Re-entry National Committee. The national committee's Co-Chairs are Black Wall Street USA members Dr. Martha Bireda and Black Wall Street Tokyo president, Dr. Jaha Cummings.

All Black Wall Street USA Movement members who specialize in programs or ministers to the formally incarcerated were asked to join in on this very important Prisoner Release and Re-entry National Committee Conference Call Meeting scheduled for December 11th.

The conference call will focus on the following topics: Spiritual guidance, housing the released population, health and wellness, pre-release entrepreneurial focus, pre-release jobs & careers focus, reaffirmation, additional topics are subject to be added.

In an unprecedented move, 6,000 inmates were released from federal prisons in what the Washington Post calls history’s “largest one-time release of federal prisoners.” This change is due to last year’s decision by the U.S. Sentencing Commission to lower sentencing guidelines for drug crimes and apply the change retroactively.

Remarkably, this release is only the beginning. The Sentencing Commission has stated that about 8,550 inmates will qualify for release over the next year and has estimated that their sentencing reforms could mean the release of 46,000 of the 100,000 federal prisoners incarcerated for drug crimes.

Black Wall Street USA Inmate Release and Re-entry National Committee 2016 National Platform (BWSUSAIRR)

BWSUSAIRR Committee National Platform:

1. Letters we get from inmates upon release

2. Prioritize (3) major issues faced by inmates: housing, income ( inability to get a decent paying job), old mindset (connection with old "crew"/social group)

3. Needs for re-entry: Pathway To Change (PTC) type program is cognitive behavioral program, and on the national list of recommended programs for offenders.

4. Housing- greatest need

5. Black businesses to hire; need some income to pay probation expenses, etc.

6. How can we work together to get sponsorship of PTC in prisons (6-9 months before release date? Would use train-the-trainer model; set up new empowered "crew" to stay connected to, African-American model.

7. What churches, organizations have transitional housing for ex-offenders? Could they also sponsor PTC as part program? Could their staff be trained in the model?
