President Joe Biden called the massacre of shoppers in a mostly Black neighborhood in Buffalo, New York, “terrorism” and called on Americans to reject White supremacy, as well as the politicians and media figures who promote it. 

“I condemn those who spread the lie for power, for political gain and for profit,” Biden said in Buffalo on Tuesday after meeting with families of victims of the attack, which killed 10 and wounded three. Eleven of the victims were Black, and the alleged shooter is White.
