On 8-3-19, 20 people were killed and 26 more were wounded in El Paso, TX, when a 24 year old gunman and white nationalist/supremacist opened fire with a military semi-automatic assault rifle in a TX Walmart shopping center. The suspect then surrendered without incident and is now in custody. But on 8-5-19, 2 more people died from their gun wounds. Authorities said the shooter posted a manifesto on line about his hatred for Mexicans then targeted the Mexican community and some beautiful white souls. Authorities are treating this massacre as an act of domestic terrorism and hatred for Mexicans.
13 hours later, in Dayton, Oh, on 8-4-19, 9 more beautiful souls were killed and 27 more were injured, when another gunman opened fire, killing several black and white soles, including his own sister. It took just 30 seconds for officers to stop the mass shooter, the gunman was killed by police, but not before 9 beautiful souls were killed.
2 mass shootings, 31 beautiful souls dead, in less than 24 hours. What a tragedy. I'm shocked. Killing black and white soles, and Latinos because they are Mexicans or immigrants, breaks my heart. My heart aches for the victims and survivors. Did the President’s redrics, racial comments, and hatred for Mexican immigrants, inspire the mass shooting in Texas? I believe so. And I believe the mass shooting in Texas prompted the mass shooting in Dayton, Oh, and as a Puerto Rican, American, I am concerned. Such redrics, hatred, racism, hate crimes, copycats, mass shootings must stop. We're all brothers and sisters no matter what race or color. #El Paso, Texas strong. #Dayton, Oh strong. #American strong. # Latino/White/Black strong.
