For the "black point of view" on terrorism ---
...ONE OF THE WORST ATTACKS IN AMERICA
UPON BLACK PEOPLE..
Early in the Twentieth Century, the Black community in Tulsa --the "Greenwood District"-- became a nationally-renowned successful entrepreneurial center. Frequently referred to as "The Black Wall Street of America," the Greenwood District attracted pioneers from all over America who sought new opportunities and fresh challenges.
Legal segregation forced blacks to do business among themselves. The Greenwood District prospered as dollars circulated within the black community. But fear and jealousy swelled in the greater Tulsa community. The alleged assault of a white woman by a black man triggered unprecedented civil unrest.
The worst riot in American history, the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921 destroyed people, property, hopes, and dreams. Hundreds of people died or were injured. Property damage ran into the millions. The Greenwood District burned to the ground.

But ever courageous, the Greenwood District pioneers
rebuilt the community from the ashes, bigger and
better than ever. By 1942, some 242 businesses called
the Greenwood District home.
Having experienced a decline in the 1960's, 1970's,
and early 1980's, the Greenwood District is now
poised for yet another renaissance. BLACK WALL STREET
speaks to the triumph of the human spirit.
Efforts to DE-POPULATE the planet of people of color --
and actions to get rid of masses of Black people have
occurred ....some out of widespread neglect --- some out
of ignorance -- and some planned.
TERRORISM has been perpetrated upon Black
people since the days of slavery....
The treatment (in those days) for those slaves, who were disobedient and would not cooperate (runaways, dissidents, protesters) with the PECULAR INSTITUTION -- then was to humiliate, degrade, beat, punish or kill them. The treatment now...is the same!
READ WHAT THE BLACK PANTHERS PUBLISHED ABOUT IT:
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR KILLING these leaders ??? --
* Minister Malcolm X
* Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
* Members of the Black Panther Party
....and many other dissidents, protesters, environmental activists, and Native American (Indian) leaders????

COINTELPRO (an acronym for Counter Intelligence Program) was a series of covert, and often illegal, projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting domestic political organizations.

While our politicians advocate that we should fight against terrorism from abroad, we still suffer from internal acts of terrorism--
Below is an example of the racist cartoons that have become more popular in the 21st Century.
As the dust of the Civil war settled, many Blacks saw an era of prosperity and hope. This dream was cut drastically as a concerted effort was begun by whites to destroy any advances which Blacks had made for themselves. This effort was extremely successful in removing Blacks from the many state and federal offices which Reconstruction had allowed them to hold. But this was not enough. The architects of the revived South needed something more to further the cause of white supremacy and Black oppression. Out of this need, the era of Jim Crow was born with its "separate but equal" claims. And with it came a wave of violence against America's newest citizens.
Black people were lynched regularly from the days of legalized slavery until approx. 30 years ago.

HAS SLAVERY ENDED?
America is keeps more people in prison than any other nation.
More than 33 percent of black youth are in prison...and mostly for "non-violent drug crimes."
Our Gov't spends a great deal more money on WAR and related...than they do on....EDUCATION, SOCIAL HELP PROGRAMS, EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAMS.
But those who commit big time crimes...like-- invading other countries based upon lies: "War crimes" ....or "crimes against the environment" -- or -- CROOKED POLITICIANS...-- either DO NOT GO TO JAIL...or certainly do not do the hard-time that small time "criminals" to which Blacks and other minorities are subjected.

WHY ARE CHENEY, BUSH AND THE REST OF THE CONSERVATIVES trying to cover up and hide data, research and reports about CLIMATE CHANGE?
Watch this video for more info on the cover up:
One big reason...they have a financial interest in the biggest source of pollution...oil. They want to keep you blind to the fact that burning gas and oil...fossil fuels is contributing to the destruction of our ECO-SYSTEM.
AND THE RECENT efforts to permit oil companies to do off-shore drilling in
the U.S. -- is nothing but the same ploy to get rich from oil.
THEY DON'T CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO THE AIR...or the
water or the animals... or you...
If you don't believe it...just watch the GLENN BECK-- TV show and listen to the
garbage that flows from his mouth about this issue. He claims to be a conservative.
THE MELTING POLAR CAPS is of no concern to these right-wing fanatics!
They don't really care if Florida, Greenland, California or any other coastal areas
go under water and millions are left homeless (or worse).
G. W. Bush and recovering alcoholic TV host Glenn Beck both have stated that..."when the polar caps melt...it'll be easier to get the oil."
