    Did you think it was Sandy Hook?

    I like Dwight Shrute. Crude, but, to the point. He also has some rockin' specs!

    And what about all of those innocents who were "shot" by electronically guided drones on 9/11? Or "shot" by thermitic material demolishing the 3 WTC buildings?

    And what about Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    War is selfishness. Killing innocents to provoke war (9/11) is selfish. Killing innocents to provoke policy changes (Sandy Hook, Columbine, etc and the 2nd Amendment) is selfish.

    We need to turn the cheek on all forms of selfishness. "Resist not evil." Why? Because resisting it only makes more of it. And it makes you more vulnerable -- more of a victim.

    Promote awareness, yes! But promote walking away from the game. Don't give them any more power. Boycott their game. And when we boycott all of the Corporations which have lobbyists in Washington, that Billion dollar sting could make them more compliant... or nonexistent.

    The Tulsa Race Riot was a large-scale racially motivated conflict on May

    31 and June 1, 1921, in which caucasians attacked the black community of

    Tulsa, Oklahoma. It resulted in the Greenwood District, also known as 'the

    Black Wall Street' and the wealthiest African-American community in the

    United States, being burned to the ground. During the 16 hours of the

    assault, over 800 people were admitted to local hospitals with injuries,

    and more than 6,000 Greenwood residents were arrested and detained at

    three local facilities. An estimated 10,000 blacks were left homeless,

    and 35 city blocks composed of 1,256 residences were destroyed by fire.

    The official count of the dead by the Oklahoma Department of Vital

    Statistics was 39, but other estimates of black fatalities have been up to

    about 300.                                                                 

      Numerous accounts described airplanes carrying white assailants firing

    rifles and dropping firebombs on buildings, homes, and fleeing families.

    The planes, six biplane two-seater trainers left over from World War I,

    were dispatched from the nearby Curtiss-Southwest Field (now defunct)

    outside of Tulsa. White law enforcement officials later claimed the

    planes were to provide reconnaissance and protect whites against what they

    described as a "Negro uprising." But, eyewitness accounts and

    testimony from the survivors confirmed that on the morning of June 1, the

    planes dropped incendiary bombs and fired rifles at black residents on the


    Several groups of blacks attempted to organize a defense, but they were

    overwhelmed by the number of armed whites. Many blacks surrendered. Others

    returned fire, and ultimately lost their lives. As the fires spread

    northward through Greenwood, countless black families continued to flee.

    Many were estimated to have died when trapped by the flames.
