What makes the question stupid? People are dead and surviving families are hurt. Where does color come in on this? Is this a racial issue or an issue of murder?

Did you know that if you subtract the African Americans from the USA's violent crime rate, our crime rate drops to below Canada's? It's true!

No African Americans = USA less violent than Canada.

Asking if they were Black isn't racist. If you look at the Department Of Justice website, and go to their statistics section, you'll see that the majority of violent crime and homicides in any major city are done by Blacks. Yes, you can bring up the fact that there are plenty of murders committed by Whites, Hispanics and Asians...but those numbers combined are less than the number committed by Blacks. It's not racist to acknowledge facts and it is a fact that Blacks resort to violence as an end to disagreements more than any other ethnic group. It's also a fact that those with lower intelligence resort to violence as a means to communicate. Each fact I've quoted supports the other. Society has come to expect that Blacks are the cause of violent crime so when something like the shooting in Buffalo occurs, it's a natural desire to either validate the expectation or gain some sort of emotional hope that things are improving...through the knowledge that Blacks weren't involved this time.
Who am I to make these statements? I hold a Ph.D. in Sociology and am on the Board of Regents at a major East Coast university. I'm also Black.

Did you know that African-Americanís (AA) do not commit crimes? Poor people do, uneducated people do, unemployed people do, people with single-parent households are likely to, and children of single mother households are more likely to commit crimes. AA from two-parent households, single income households, educated, gainfully employed commit crime at the same rate as others in their demographic.

You see, as a statistician and obviously and ethnographer, you have failed to include factors that influence behavior. Your melanin does not predict behavior otherwise all blacks would commit crime. And, based on your assessment, no whites would commit crimes either.

Take for example Seaside Heights or Manchester; all white, and relatively higher crime. The same is true for Brick, NJ. A higher concentration of white working class with higher crime rates. So, if you take away all the people who are uneducated, unemployed, single parents, we will have fewer crimes. See the pattern?

There, I did that with half my brain tied behind my back (Rush, 1991).

If this were an old-school Mafia honor killing, the restaurant would be a tourist destination with rave reviews and a line out the door.

Seeing how it was typical savage behavior from blacks, they will be out of business within a week.

The Buffalo News did not have this story on it's web "headline" at 11:15 AM today, but as of an 11;02 update they included 2 very small articles on the latest updates section.
Meanwhile CNN had interviews and the latest story from those that were there at 10:30 AM...as I went to that site after seeing nothing in BUFFALO NY!
It seems to me DeGeorge/Derenda/Brown/Buffalo News who protects these folks TIGHTLY BEHIND THE SCENES, are attempting to wait and spin this out of control,outrageous behavior in Downtown's entertainment district....into an isolated more controlled event..... than what really went on.
This folks is why the News does not allow anonymous blogging, and the Buffalo Police blog ...LEFTY LINE....has been hampered with after Derenda was crowned and is now on an alleged sabatical for 6 weeks.

So Buffalo, you are now being fed the half truth garbage that the Government and media..BNS, here locally want you to hear and absorb as fact.

The real insider truthes, facts and stories bellowing informatively for over a year and a half extensively from both blogs, is now eliminated simultaneously and rendered into the sphere of NO CURRENT AND TASTY TRUTHFUL NEWS STORIES, as demanded from CITY, COUNTY STATE GOVERNMENT OFFICES AND THE BUFFALO NEWSPAPER.

The public must not continue to allow this city to be cut off from information that they MUST have access to...like what has happened this summer....demand that it stop by continuing to blog the truth about WNY on this site, as long it remains open...hurry.
