    These men are not heroes to Black people, and they should not be heroes to many Americans. Turning a blind eye to tyranny is not chivalrous; it’s obscene.

    Remembering the Victims of the Waffle House Shooting

    On Sunday, April 22, a gunman with an assault-type rifle opened fire at a Waffle House in Antioch, Tennessee, killing four people. Let’s take a look at the lives lost in the shooting:

    DeEbony Groves, 21, was a senior at Belmont University in Nashville and part of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Classmates and friends have remembered her as a brilliant student and star athlete.

    Akilah DaSilva, 23, was a music video producer and rap artist, known as “Natrix Dream” on his SoundCloud and YouTube accounts. He “was a real visionary and he had a brighter future than most people could imagine,” according to Michael McDonald, a close friend of DaSilva.

    Taurean Sanderlin, 29, was a Waffle House employee shot outside on his break from work. He worked for the chain for roughly five years. He was a cook and known as “T” by Waffle House regulars.

    Joe Perez, 20, worked as a subcontractor in Nashville. He was the youngest child in his family. His mother said on Facebook of her son, “Please say a prayer for my family for today is the hardest day of my life. Me, my husband and sons are broken right now with this loss. Our lives are shattered.”

    Rest In Peace to the four victims of the Waffle House massacre. You will be remembered and loved.
