My fellow Americans, this was not a riot. This was a massacre — [applause] among the worst in our history, but not the only one. And for too long, forgotten by our history. As soon as it happened, there was a clear effort to erase it from our memory. We do ourselves no favors by pretending none of this ever happened, or doesn’t impact us today because it does still impact us today. We can’t just choose to learn what we want to know, and not what should know. [applause] The events we speak of today took place 100 years ago, and yet I’m the first president in 100 years ever to come to Tulsa and — [applause] I say that not as a compliment about me, but to think about it, 100 years and the first president to be here during that entire time. And at this moment, I’d like to pause for a moment of silence for the fathers, mothers, sisters, sons and daughters, friends of God and Greenwood. They deserve dignity and they deserve our respect. May their souls rest in peace.
