I had never been taught about the Tulsa race riots until i learned about them here on reddit. On top of that, 'race riots' makes it sound like black people rioting, rather than the white people rioting and killing black people, just another subtle white washing.

I'm Canadian, and I only learned about them a year or two ago.

That would make sense, seeing as you live in Canada.

Yeah, but with our exposure to American and international media and history being as high as it is, you'd think that it would've come up before. At the same time, a lot of Canadians were, and remain, woefully (maybe wilfully!) unaware of some our own history, so...

But I know now.

I live in Washington state and they went over Tulsa a few times while I was in high school. I graduated in 2018
