Suddenly stories are being written abt #SundownTowns thanks to the brilliant writing on @LovecraftHBO - Much credit to the showrunners for educating America about itself in ways our public schools don't (Like the millions who didn't known about the Tulsa riots until #WatchmenHBO
Now, what IS a "Sundown town"? It's a colloquialism for a town or part of town where black folks knew they had to leave before sundown or risk police violence or vigilante violence from whites. They're part of America's unofficial apartheid policy
The presumption was, the only black people in that part of town were there to do work for white homeowners or business people, so once the sun went down they should be on their way home and had no business in that part of town. It's a practice that continues to this day

Al inicio de #WatchmenHBO tenemos los sucesos racistas de Tulsa en 1921. Al no estar familiarizado con este evento quise informarme y llegué a una foto del asesinato de Will Brown durante el "Verano rojo" de 1919 en Omaha (Nebraska) que me dejó helado.
Hasta dónde puede llegar la crueldad del ser humano fruto de la intolerancia. Esos rostros que parecen tan normales delante de otro ser humano que había sido linchado, carbonizado y asesinado.
Los sucesos de Tulsa parece que empezaron por un hecho aislado: un hombre negro fue acusado de atacar a una mujer blanca. Luego la población negra sufrió un pogromo llevado por la histeria racista de una sociedad regresada de Europa tras la Gran Guerra y compietiendo por empleos.

The white terrorist massacre of Tulsa’s Black Wall Street in 1921 takes up the first eight minutes of the #WatchmenHBO series premiere. Watch—then read about it. We all should know that racial terrorism at one point involved white folks dropping bombs on black people from planes.
Tulsa, sadly, would not be the last place where black people found themselves the victims of bombing, of course—the most memorable case being the four little girls murdered at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. The Philly police even dropped one from the sky on MOVE.
On the MOVE bombing, read @GeeDee215.
