Black Child: She Was the Richest Black Girl in the World and It's a Shame We Barely Know Her Name Did you Know? Sarah Rector-By the age of 10, she became the richest Black child in America. She received a land grant from the Creek Nation as part of reparations. Soon after, oil was discovered on her property. By 1912, the revenue from this oil was $371,000 per year (roughly $6.5 million today). Despite various attempts to steal her land and fortune, Sarah resisted. She went on to attend Tuskegee University and eventually settled in Kansas City, Missouri where her mansion still stands. Her name was Sarah Rector. She was a young black girl born in Indian Territory in 1902. Her parents were Joseph and Rose Rector, all of Taft, Indian Territory. Her story is similar to that of Danny Tucker another black child born in Indian Territory. He, like Sarah had a humble beginning, and he, like Sarah would make headlines for sudden wealth acquired by oil rich land. Early in her life, she received a land allotment like all who were members of the Creek Nation. Like thousands of blacks once held in bondage by the Five slave-holding tribes, (Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek and Seminole Nations) she and her family members received land allotments prior to Oklahoma statehood. It was a general practice that Freedmen often receive land considered to be of less value for farming as did citizens declared as Indians By Blood, and Inter-Married Whites. However, the story changed when oil was discovered on her land allotment, near Taft, Oklahoma. Her wealth caused immediate alarm and all efforts were made to put the child Sarah under "guardianship" of whites whose lives became comfortable immediately. Meanwhile Sarah still lived in humble surroundings. As white businessmen took control of her estate, efforts were also made to put her under control of officials at Tuskegee Institute. Much attention was given to Sarah in the press. In 1913, there was an effort to have her declared white, so that because of her millions she could ride in a first class car on the trains. Sarah's life continued as she began to get offers of marriage from around the world, and efforts were made to move her to Tuskegee. Because of the attention of the black press, her life eventually took a better turn, when individuals stepped in to intervene, and obtain a better lifetstyle for her. Not much is written about her adolescence, but it is know that she did attend Tuskegee Institute, and after she completed her studies there, she moved to Kansas City. In 1922, she married Kenneth Campbell. They were known to have many real estate holdings in the area. She and her husband purchased a home that still stands today in Kansas City. -blackpast.org SarahRector theblaquelioness

Black Child: Racist Couple Cries In Court After Being Sentenced To 13 Years For Waving Guns At Black Child's Birthday Party @balleralert OUN PR Racist Couple Cries In Court After Being Sentenced To 13 Years For Waving Guns At Black Child’s Birthday Party - blogged by: @eleven8 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A Georgia court got it right when they sentenced 26-year-old Jose Ismael Torres and 25-year-old Kayla Rae Norton to some hard time for waving guns and terrorizing 8 year old black children. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident occurred July 2015 in Douglasville, GA. Torres and Norton, as part of a larger group called ‘Respect the Flag,’ pulled up to the birthday party of an 8 year old black child with a convoy of at least 7 pickup trucks, waving confederate flags. As they drove by, the convoy hurled racial slurs and threats at partygoers. At one point Torres pulled out a shotgun and pointed it at the child’s family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In court Monday, a judge decided to sentence Torres and Norton to a year greater than what the state was seeking. Norton was sentenced to 6 years on one count of violating Georgia’s street gang act and one count of making terroristic threats. Torres was sentenced to 13 years for three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of terroristic threats and one count of violating the street gang act. The couple cried hysterically in court as their sentences were being read. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The worst decision I’ve ever made in my life was to not walk away when I had the chance,” Norton said. “That is not me. That is not me. That is not him. I would never walk up to you and say those words to you and I am so sorry that happened to you.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Torres and Norton were the last of the 15 people to be convicted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Congratulations to the judge who saw this heinous hate crime for what it was.

<br/>C. Of course the parents should be held responsible, but that didn’t change the fact that the child was in immediate danger as several zoologists and animal behavior specialists who actually know what the hell they’re talking about have confirmed. It doesn’t matter if he was “trying” to hurt the child or not. Due to their strength and size, gorillas are so dangerous that even trained zookeepers will not get into the enclosures with them.
<br/>D. I don’t think I can stress enough how little this has to do with white privilege and how much of a dope you are for assuming the child was white.

They did not have to kill that gorilla. The mother should be held responsible. Another example of white privilege. It would have never been a black child but if it was, there would be outrage about how it happened and caused the death of an innocent Gorilla that wasn’t even trying to hurt the child. Why weren’t there any tranquilizers?
