The exact 99th anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre happened just under two weeks ago — 5.31 and 6.1. It’s nonetheless astounding that in the wake of the nationwide George Floyd marches, Donald Trump has slated a political rally in Tulsa, of all places, and of all dates on 6.19 or “Juneteenth“, an African American holiday that celebrates the end of slavery.
The symbolism couldn’t be plainer. Trump is more or less announcing the following: “To honor the 99th anniversary of the mob murder of dozens of black citizens in 1921 Tulsa, I will stage my first post-COVID shutdown rally in this very same city, thus ensuring that my racist bumblefuck supporters will attend in droves…you know what we’re saying and why we’re gathering in Tulsa…long live the greatness of redhat America!”
President Trump is holding his next hate rally on Juneteenth … in Tulsa, the site of the 1921 race massacre.
