We took some horrible losses over the past week and I wish to highlight a few that really pulled at my spirit. May they all rest, and may all the rest of us DO OUR BEST IN THEIR MEMORIES! #SayHisName#DraylenMason#17YearsOld#FutureMusician#GoneTooSoon#NoOneIsTalkingAboutIt —AUSTIN BOMBS APPEAR TO BE TARGETING PROMINENT BLACK FAMILIES
Three package bombs have gone off in Austin, Texas, in the past two weeks, and they appear to have targeted members of prominent black families, the president of the local NAACP told NBC News Wednesday.
The families of Stephen House, who was killed on March 2, and Draylen Mason, who was killed on Monday, have known each other for a long time “and go to the same church,” according to Nelson Linder. The Austin NAACP president said that a third bomb, which injured 75-year-old Esperanza Herrera, may have been intended for “another person who might be connected to the House and Mason families.” Though the Austin police agree that the bombings are related, they haven’t suggested a motive. They also haven’t said whether they think the victims were personally targeted. But interim Austin police chief Brian Manley did tell reporters this week that they’re not ruling out the possibly “that hate crime is at the core of this.”
