Following reports of today’s hate crime in Jacksonville, Florida Democratic Party Chair Nikki Fried issued the following statement: 

“There are no words that can fully describe the pain that the Jacksonville community is experiencing right now after three Black people were targeted and killed in a racially motivated shooting,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried

“The manifesto left behind could not have been more clear, the shooter was a white supremacist. In Ron DeSantis’ Florida, Black people are being murdered because we live in a state that has refused to denounce neo-Nazi propaganda and rewritten the history books on slavery. Earlier this year, the NAACP issued a travel advisory warning people of color traveling to the state, and tonight we are reminded why.

“We offer our condolences to the victims’ families and stand with Mayor Donna Deegan and the entire City of Jacksonville as the community seeks answers and healing during this dark and difficult time.”
