Our wholehearted sympathies, prayers, and condolences go out to all the families and friends of the 10 precious souls, the 10 victims of deadly violent horrific racist hate crime, 10 ordinary people of purpose, ALL BLACK, who were shot to death, in cold blood, at TOPS Supermarket in Buffalo, New York, by Payton Gendron of Conklin, New York. 

Payton Gendron, is an 18 year old hateful racist White supremist gunman (with a high-powered rifle with N-word etched on it). Payton Gendron’s whole poisoned purpose of pure evil in life was to mass murder Black people to be the racist savior who saves the White race. Who pre meditatively targeted Black people, and murdered 10 people at TOPS Supermarket on Jefferson Avenue in the heart of the Black community in Buffalo, New York.

I call for the life imprisonment of Payton Gendron this 18-year-old radical White racist supremacist mass murderer on the local, state, and federal levels. Payton Gendron live-streamed premeditated racist mass murder of Black people at TOPS Supermarket in Buffalo, New York while dressed in militaristic gear. An evil whole armor of racism, classism, sexism, and anti-Semitism. A helmet of racist hell, a bulletproof vest of vicious racist hate, and a high-powered automatic rifle of real racism aimed especially at Black lives.

President Joe Biden and New York State Governor Kathy Hochul we must have sound-minded gun control passed in Congress and enforced with a rock-solid mindset for change throughout the entire landscape of America.
