How Descendants Of The Tulsa Massacre Could Get Justice

Descendants of the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 are in line to get reparations from the United States government, but not for what first comes to mind — the massacre. Many of the Black Americans of Tulsa were descendants of the slaves held by Native American tribes and for that, they are due reparations in the form of Native American subsidies that have been denied to them by tribes who discriminate against their Black members.

Rep. Maxine Waters exclusively told theGrio as the chair of the Financial Services Committee, she has the authority to intervene on any funding aspects of the tribe’s treaties with the United States government.
