We are sickened by the acts of an 18-year-old male white nationalist who murdered 10 innocent Black people buying groceries in their East Buffalo, N.Y., Tops supermarket. The victims’ names are Celestine Chaney, 65; Roberta Drury, 32; Andre Mackniel, 53; Katherine Massey, 72; Margus D. Morrison, 52; Heyward Patterson, 67; Aaron W. Salter, 55; Geraldine Talley, 62; Ruth Whitfield, 86; and Pearly Young, 77.

We refer you to the powerful statement below by Alicia Garza, principal of the Black 2 the Future Action Fund and co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement:
