White House dodges on whether Tulsa 'Black Wall Street' massacre survivors should get reparations


The White House declined to support a push for three survivors of the 1921 race massacre in Tulsa and other descendants affected by the riots to receive financial reparations, a recommendation made by a state commission into the incident.

For President Joe Biden, what survivors of the Oklahoma massacre endured 100 years ago was “tragic and devastating,” but his focus was on raising awareness about the violence rather than seeking to compensate those adversely affected, according to White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre.

“He also supports a study, as we’ve said before, into reparations, but believes that, first and foremost, the task in front of us is to root out systemic racism where it exists right now,” Jean-Pierre told reporters Tuesday on Air Force One en route to Tulsa.
