8 minutes & 46 seconds to murder George Floyd were enough to inflame worldwide protests against injustices and Racism, not only against the Blacks, but other minorities persecuted around the world. Today is the 99th anniversary of Tulsa massacre where around 300 blacks were massacred, and 1200 homes were burned by Whites. George was lucky to have witnesses and cameras that register his brutal murder. Blacks soldiers in WW1 won’t give help them immunity from racial discrimination and subsequent raids from the Whites. Even after a century, the burial place of the dead bodies was not identified. Documents and archival material of the massacre disappeared. Criminals in power everywhere try always to hide their crimes. Only a few who survived the massacre were lucky to testify and recount their horrible moments before their last breath. “I can¨t breathe” was the only last word we heard from Floyed.  How essential for researchers to register what happened to Palestinian survivors after almost 70 massacres – before, during, and in the aftermath of Nakba (disaster) in 1948- through “Oral History” documentation: a weapon of the marginal and oppressed. Our common enemy as human beings is RACISM  whether we are  Blacks, Palestinians, Kurds, Armenians, European Jews,  Muslim Rohingyas or Tutsis in Rwanda.
