Published May 8, 2023


ABC News spoke to Henry Louis Taylor in a report about the year after the racially motivated mass shooting at Top’s in Buffalo's predominantly Black East Side. Taylor believes the massacre is linked to decades of segregation and inequality in the city. He says that "white racism fueled the shooter's racial hatred and also created the marginalized, underdeveloped neighborhood conditions that drew him to the city.”
