Biden says ‘literal hell was unleashed’ on 100th anniversary of Tulsa race bloodbath.

PRESIDENT Joe Biden said that "literal hell was unleashed" as he spoke on Tuesday of the Tulsa Race Massacre that saw black people slaughtered on its 100th anniversary.

Biden called the Tulsa attack a "stain on the soul of America" as he compared it to both the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally in 2017 and the riot on the US Capitol on January 6.

He also addressed how the history of the massacre had not been taught in schools and had been "erased from our memories" for almost a century.

"We do ourselves no favours pretending it didn't happen," Biden said.

"We can't choose to learn what we want to know and not what we should know.

The president blasted the attack by a white mob on the black Greenwood community in 1921 as "not a riot, but a massacre" as he revealed his administration's plan to address the racial wealth gap in the US.
