CWA Statement on the Mass Shooting at Tops Supermarket in Buffalo

17 May, 2022

Once again Black people in our country have been targeted and traumatized by a violent white supremacist. Ten people were killed, three wounded, and millions terrorized in this racially motivated attack.

While this hate is senseless, it reflects a history of structural and systemic racism which has been given new energy by online communities that promote conspiracy theories, television personalities who legitimize them, and politicians who exploit them.

This suffering must end. Mass shootings - at our workplaces, at our schools, at our churches and other gathering places - have become commonplace in the United States. We mourn the dead, and we recommit ourselves to the fight to dismantle racism.
