In honor of the release of George Lucas’s $58 million dollar movie Red Tails, OD made a special trip to Tuskegee, AL this afternoon and snapped over two dozen photos to show the internet The Reality of Tuskegee in 2012.
I’m publishing these photos and video via Twitter. This will enable you to experience what it is like to stand with us at Moton Air Field and behold the legacy of Booker T. Washington, George Washington Carver, and the Red Tails.
OD went to Tuskegee in search of 21st century Red Tails, black scientists, and black entrepreneurs … but what we discovered upon our arrival there was just another decaying city that had been violently destroyed by the Black Undertow.
The Black Undertow has turned Tuskegee into a city of abandoned homes, criminal violence, ruined buildings, potholed streets, deserted shopping centers, car washes, beauty supply stores, dollar stores, nail salons, title pawn and cash advance stores, barber shops, and fried chicken restaurants. There is a liquor store and a grocery store that is subsidized by the government to prevent Macon County from becoming a “food desert.”
147 years after the abolition of slavery, 131 years after the founding of Tuskegee University, and 47 years after the Voting Rights Act … the truth is that Tuskegee looks more like it got bombed by the Luftwaffe than the other way around.
OD has uncovered evidence the the Nazis must have retaliated against Tuskegee with Hitler’s secret weapon: negro equality. We are reporting that the result of this secret Nazi attack was absolutely devastating!

Note: This post is dedicated to Rob Baker of The Historic Struggle who cited Booker T. Washington and the Tuskegee Airmen as proof of the theory of racial equality. It is also dedicated to Hollywood mythmakers and DWL historians like Brooks D. Simpson who have spent years lying to the public about the nature of African-Americans.
