This happened 3 blocks from my house.
The Wife shops at this store weekly.
She teaches two blocks away.

This should've been national news--5 people shot in broad daylight on a busy shopping avenue just blocks from 2 schools.

Oh--but we live in a black neighborhood, so...🦗🦗🦗
This store is on a main avenue with small shops, market, mosque.
2 blocks up, K-12 school.
3 blocks in the other direction, an elementary school.
This happened when school was letting out.

No national news coverage.
Black neighborhood, news blackout.
Five people shot is a mass shooting by FBI/law enforcement standards.
If this were a white neighborhood with a mass shooting mid-afternoon when schools were letting out, it would have been a headline on all three networks on the evening news.
It wasn't.
