man lived 105 years hoping for justice for Black Wall Street atrocities

The story of Black Wall Street in the Greenwood section of Tulsa, Oklahoma is the kind of story that every black person in America should share with their children. Everyone who is very quick to criticize black people for not having wealth might want to realize that there have been situations when black people actually exceeded their white counterparts when it came to money management and wealth building. In the case of Black Wall Street, the only fault of black citizens is that they did not exceed their white neighbors in fire power, legal power or shear brutality.
This Facebook message was left by Damario Solomon-Simmons, a prominent attorney in the state of Oklahoma. Damario tells the story of Otis “Dad” Clark, the oldest known survivor of the Greenwood Massacre. Please read carefully, share with those you know, and make sure that the legacy of these brave black Americans is never, ever forgotten. The message is below:

On this sober 93rd anniversary of the Greenwood Massacre (a/k/a Tulsa Race Riot), I dedicate this post to Otis “Dad” Clark the oldest known survivor of the Greenwood Massacre who died two years ago at 109. I had the GREAT opportunity working with and traveling to Washington D.C. on several occasions with Dad Clark while representing the survivors of Greenwood.During these journeys for justice, Dad Clark often spoke of looking forward to the day when he and the other survivors would get justice for themselves and the Black community of Tulsa. Sadly, Dad Clark left this earth without the satisfaction of the elusive justice that he pursued with vigor, grace, and enthusiasm.You can continue Dad Clark’s pursuit of justice by educating your network about Greenwood, requesting your local schools to teach at Greenwood, and requesting your Congressperson to support Rep. John Conyers “The John Hope Franklin Tulsa-Greenwood Race Riot Claims Accountability Act of 2012 which will create a federal cause of action to allow the survivors of the Tulsa-Greenwood Race Riot of 1921 to seek a determination on the merits of their civil rights and other claims against the perpetrators of the riot in a federal court of law.” #NeverForget!

A Black Male With A Degree And A White High School Grad Have The Same Chances Of Getting A Job

Several studies have pointed out the evident racial achievement gap but recent research has revealed a sad truth -- an African-American male with an associate degree has the same chances of getting a job as a white male with a high school diploma.
The study, conducted by Young Invincibles, looks at the effect of race and education on employment, revealing the impact race can have on an individual's chances of getting a job.
The findings aren't incredibly surprising, considering that black millennials are more than two times more likely to face unemployment than their white counterparts, at 16.6 percent compared to 7.1 percent. But the study delves deeper, exploring hiring discrimination, high black male and female incarceration rates and the gap in generational wealth between whites and African-Americans.
In an interview with Think Progress, Tom Allison, one of the study's authors, pointed out the positive impact additional degrees can have on African-American earning and employment potential.
According to the study, even though unemployment is higher among African Americans at every level of education, the added gains in income and employment opportunities gained from getting an additional degree is much greater for African Americans than whites. For example, a professional degree gives a black male a 146 percent larger increase in employment opportunities than his white counterparts. A bachelor’s degree raises the median wage of a black man by $10,000 per year, compared to a raise of $6,100 per year for a white man.
But despite that fact, African-Americans still face challenges obtaining degrees at all educational levels. Census Bureau data shows that black students are twice as likely to drop out of high school as their white counterparts, and less likely to obtain a college degree.
