Joe Biden's Tulsa Massacre Speech Started by Making Sure 2 Girls Get Ice Cream
Last month, Joe Biden delayed his speech for the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre by asking two girls in the audience if they were getting ice cream.
The president noted that he just had to make sure that the two girls will get ice cream when the event was over. He said it must be "purgatory" for the five-year-old kids to hear the president speaks, Daily Mail reported.
Biden went to Tulsa to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Black Wall Street Massacre. It was when white rioters killed African Americans and looted businesses in the prosperous black neighborhood in 1921.
The president said he was visiting the city to ensure that the Tulsa massacre was not overlooked or forgotten. Joe Biden was the first president to mark the anniversary of the Tulsa massacre.
The president said that just because history is silent, it does not mean it did not occur. He added that some injustices are so heinous, they cannot be buried no matter how hard people try.
Biden then urged Americans to remember the occasion and learn from it. He said that it still affects them today, adding that they cannot just choose to learn what they want to know and what they should know.
Joe Biden said that what happened in the Black neighborhood of Greenwood was an act of hate and domestic terrorism.
