North Tulsans Question Race Massacre Graves Investigation

Bynum: City to spend ‘$1 million to continue the search for the graves of victims. 

    • The critique comes a year after the start of excavations for the mass graves.
    • Bynum has doubled down on his public stance supporting the grave’s probe.
    • Chief Egunwale Amusan, an Oversight Committee member and one of its the most vocal critics, dismissed Bynum’s promises and the official status reports – as “superficial, cynical, and inadequate.”

“Roe Was On A Collision Course With The Constitution From The Day That It Was Decided.”

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Alito, and likely most jurists, believe that “procuring an abortion is not a fundamental constitutional right because such a right has no basis in the Constitution’s text or in our Nation’s history.”
The abstract is a useful tool for capturing the full spectrum of the nature of politics, its darkest and brightest persona. It also serves as a reminder to anticipate every measure of behavior from politicians. Enter, the 2022 Oklahoma Governor’s race candidates and the chorus of operatives who have wasted little time crafting messaging firmly anchored within the “Scary Black Men” trope, featuring Oklahoma native Lawrence Paul Anderson, felon and cannibal.
