Alliance Stands with Those Targeted in Mass Shooting in Buffalo

Robert Roach, Jr., President of the Alliance, expressed his condolences this week to the victims and families of the tragic mass shooting last Saturday in Buffalo, New York at a Tops Friendly Markets grocery store. Ten people were killed, and three others were injured; 11 of the victims were black. Police said the 13 victims, including the wounded, ranged in age from 20 to 86.

Authorities are calling the attack “racially motivated.” The suspect allegedly wrote a 180-page document filled with hateful rants about race that invoked the false “great replacement” conspiracy theory.

“The members of the Alliance join with all Americans who were hurt by the terrible violence last weekend in Buffalo in calling for an end to the bloodshed. Our thoughts are with the deceased, the injured and all of their loved ones. We send our deepest wishes for healing to everyone affected by this senseless attack.”

President Roach said that the rhetoric that has become all too familiar on television and social media has contributed to the violence in America.

“Regardless of what they may think they are saying, when cable television pundits, politicians and everyday Americans use harsh, hateful and inappropriate language to communicate, it divides the nation and can have serious consequences.”
