The University of Notre Dame has issued a statement in response to reports that the man who police say shot 13 people, killing 10, at a Tops Supermarket in Buffalo, New York, created a manifesto that cited works by an associate professor.
A 2013 article by John Gaski, that was published in Investor’s Business Daily, talks about racial violence and lists statistics about interracial violent crime.
In the article, Gaski calls some well-known civil rights activists “race baiters.”
A statement from the university says it’s appalling that an article was cited by the perpetrator of the heinous murders of innocent people and, that, whatever Gaski’s intentions, they deeply regret that his words were used to support a doctrine of racial hatred.
