Tulsa’s ‘Black Wall Street’ Flourished as a Self-Contained Hub in Early 1900s

Before the Tulsa Race Massacre where the city’s black district of Greenwood was attacked by a white mob, resulting in two days of bloodshed and destruction, the area had been considered one of the most affluent African American communities in the United States for the early part of the 20th century.

At the Start of World War II Imperial Japan Was on a Roll

Key Point: After six months, Tokyo would suffer great losses at Midway. However, before that happened the situation looked grim for the Allies.

Both sides needed reinforcements. For the Japanese and the Americans in October 1942, the battle for Guadalcanal was turning into a bottomless pit, demanding more and more scarce resources—in the air and at sea and, most importantly, on the ground. Control of the malarial, jungle-clad island and its airfield might determine the fate of the war in the Pacific.

George Floyd situation shows America’s problems don’t lie with China

[Trump] claims China has cheated the U.S. out of millions of jobs, billions of dollars all the more. By waving the magic wand of “America First” or as Pompeo now likes to say “confront Communist tyranny,” the administration claims that aggressive foreign policies on the country can return everything “back to normal” and make all these issues go away.

But this is a grave and deeply misleading falsehood. In pursuing an all-embracing vilification of China, the White House and its supporters are deceiving the public as to not only what America’s true problems are, but what they always have been – that is that the United States is a deeply unequal and divided country with staggering levels of wealth inequality, structural racism and underwhelming poverty unprecedented within the developed world.

HK proposal brings flood of crocodile tears

I’m formulating a theory. It’s in the early stages; let me know what you think.

Here’s what I’ve got so far: The severity of an action taken by China is inversely proportional to the madness with which the West reacts to it.

Let’s test the theory with a recent example. On May 21, during its third annual session, the 13th National People’s Congress announced it would put forward a draft decision on national security legislation for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. One week later, that decision was passed.

Why are Chinese partaking in ‘revenge observation’ on US riots?

Aside from gloating, more Chinese people are surprised and also confused about how the US could descend to such a low level since it currently has both the largest coronavirus death toll and a rioting on such a scale re-emerging after 50 years. Nothing has changed in regards to racial problems and the social divide. Human rights, social equality and democracy… all the things that the US used to boast about are nothing but a bubble poked by reality, Zhang said.
