[Ed. – Then, once they’ve ‘come to terms with their dark sides,’ their leaders travel the globe conducting an apology tour for their ‘arrogance.’]

President Joe Biden called on America to remember the Tulsa Race Massacre during remarks given Tuesday in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

“You can’t just choose to learn what we want to know and not what we should know,” Biden said. “We should know the good, the bad, everything. That’s what great nations do. They come to terms with their dark sides, and we are a great nation. The only way to build common ground is to truly repair and to rebuild. I come here to help fill the silence because in silence wounds deepen.”

Biden is the first president to participate in the remembrance event, The Associated Press previously reported. Prior to his remarks Tuesday, Biden met with three surviving members of the 1921 massacre that some historians estimate killed up to 300 black people.
