  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Biden unveils measures to ‘narrow racial wealth gap’” – below is their description.

    US President Joe Biden has led a ceremony in the state of Oklahoma to mark the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre.

    As many as 300 people were killed when white mobs attacked Black homes and businesses in 1921.

    Biden says remembering the mass killing is important to the nation’s healing.

    He announced steps to “help narrow the racial wealth gap” which include readdressing housing discrimination and supporting Black businesses.

    But some are angry he made no mention of reparations for historical injustices.
