Who Made America Better? Trump or Obama?

New York Times Smears White Americans

During a recent interview with MSNBC, New York Times columnist Mara Gay insisted that white Americans are “good at forgetting history” during a conversation about racism.

According to Breitbart, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said, “Mara, of course, we’ve been talking about connective tissue that have drawn Americans together for so long. Of course, Tulsa is a reminder of so many Americans who never felt that connection, and these pictures come back 100 years later as a stark reminder of what has happened in our history and what so many Americans today are still fighting for.”

Gay responded, “Yeah, it is a really challenging story for several reasons. One of them is just we were talking about veterans and the connective tissue that could build, and that is absolutely correct. Of course, then you look at what happened in Tulsa, and we have images today of hundreds of World War I Black veterans from World War I being rounded up and put into the equivalent of local concentration camps and many of them lynched. It is a very harsh, difficult history that really is, I think still present today when you think about today, we still have survivors from this.”

She continued, “The other reason this is an important story is because I think Americans, especially white Americans, but Americans, in general, tend to be very good at forgetting history but also tend to think that slavery was a very long time ago and that discrimination was a very long time ago. The reality is that is just not the case. So we have individuals — I spoke actually to Dr. Olivia Hooker, who was one of the last survivors. She died in 2018. I was fortunate enough to get a chance to interview her both in high school and then again at The Wall Street Journal, and she survived the massacre as a little girl.”
