Summary Compares the hate crime in Tulsa Oklahoma in April of 2012 to the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot. In 1921, in a frenzy of media-enflamed hatred, a white mob rampaged through the wealthy "Negro Wall Street" district of Greenwood, destroying 35 city blocks, leaving up to 300 people dead and more than 10,000 homeless, all in one night. No one was ever arrested, tried, or convicted of any crime related to the 1921 Race Riots. This is compared to the 2012 case where two white males drove through the African-American neighborhood of Greenwood targeting blacks at random, killing three and leaving two others in critical condition. Two suspects were captured and faced the death penalty for the crime. Discusses these incidents in the context of American culture and race relations.
