Why can't people just let go of the past and focus on the future? People are finding it much to easy to be offended about things. Hey, it offends me that I offend you! Anyway, I'm sure you can find fault with anyone at some time or another because no one is perfect. I think people complaining about Brady make about as much sense as if someone was to say we should strike down Martin Luther King because he spent some time in jail and we shouldn't be honoring a person that broke the law.

Very well said kgregory. Unwashed Mass...At least the North came to their senses and realized the error of their ways. However, the South chose to fight and die to keep humans enslaved. You do the math.

Saying everything about the former Confederacy is evil is a very myopic view if history. How many years was slavery legal in the northern states? As far as this article, was any independent verification offered?

Well all I can say is I have found Tulsans to be racists(both)and to think this kind of history should be left in the past is why you Tulsans will repeat history. How many times have you heard posters comment on north Tulsa. I knew Gene and he was at our house several times over the years. Nice enough guy but the apple did not fall far from the tree.

And as a Brady Heights neighborhood resident, the recent publication and airing of this story has caused a lot of worry among neighborhood residents (especially the Brady Mansion). There have already been 'protest' signs hung around the Brady District but we are concerned over this geting more out of hand and there being any 'non-civil protesting.' At what point (FOX) does this surpass educating the public and become sensationalism??

I AGREE with watchdog. Tulsey town was founded by a Black Creek Indian by the name of Perryman Brady just married the woman who had the land of what is known as the brady district

Of course the Bradys heirs should be left alone, we don't get to pick our ancestors, anyway, the Muskogee Creek Indians founded "Tulsey Town",not Tate Brady, he just stepped in and re-created it in his own image, and the results speak for themselves folks. Most Tulsans today would rather claim Tulsa was founded by a cruel, racist b%$#@(* than admit it was founded by Native Americans, so have we really learned anything or moved beyond racism, I think not.

And I see where you're going with the Gacy thing. The current generation of Bradys had nothing to do with Tate's crimes. They should be left alone.

Michael, you have made some great points here. And I already knew about the founding of the Ku Klux Klan, it was Democrats that created that mess. I agree that we need to let go of the past to move on but I also believe that sometimes we must take a look at the past to prevent similar mistakes in the future. There are countless problems this country faces today because we didn’t pay enough attention to past events and warnings. So I mostly agree with you but wanted to add my own thoughts to yours.
