ELAINE, Ark. — It is considered one of the darkest days in American history — the Elaine, Arkansas Massacre of 1919.

More than 200 African-Americans — men, women and some children — were killed by armed whites in the small Arkansas Delta town about an hour and half southwest of Memphis. It’s called one of the most bloody and horrific massacres in American history.

Five white people were killed in the massacre. However, no white people were ever charged for the killings.

Friday, hundreds of people gathered for what’s called the Elaine Truth Telling Commission hearing, an examination of the tragic events. Through letters and notes handed down from generations, residents of Elaine reflected on the massacre of 1919.

It all started when black sharecroppers sought to unionize.

On Jan. 17, 1893 the US illegally dethroned the Queen of Hawaii under the pretense of putting down a rebellion of White invaders on Hawaiian soil.

This image shows the “Forced Marriage” between the US & the Hawaiian Queendom overseen by White business interest & Christian Missionaries.

Hawaii is still under White settler colonialism & its Natives are still under genocidal oppression, just like the “mainland.”
