Re­mem­ber all vic­tims of hate

The Washington Post - - FREE FOR ALL -

I ap­pre­ci­ate that there is a lot go­ing on in the world and only so much space in any edi­tion of the pa­per. While I’m glad that The Post has cov­ered the Pitts­burgh syn­a­gogue mas­sacre of 11 hu­man be­ings as be­ing highly dis­turb­ing and the great loss that it is, I am trou­bled at the lack of cov­er­age given of two African Amer­i­cans, Mau­rice Stal­lard and Vickie Lee Jones, who were killed in an at­tack be­ing in­ves­ti­gated as a hate crime around the same time that an anti-Semitic shooter mas­sa­cred peo­ple at the syn­a­gogue.

It is the same mag­ni­tude of hate whether the vic­tims num­ber 11 or two. Please cor­rect this sit­u­a­tion and pay re­spects to th­ese vic­tims of ha­tred in our coun­try. If we ig­nore some vic­tims, we erase their pain from our con­scious­ness.
