HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — A Black, former Texas Tech graduate student was executed Thursday for a double slaying in Lubbock a dozen years ago. This was the 8th African American executed this year in Texas. There have been a total of 10 executions so far in Texas, the nation's most active capital punishment state. Vaughn Ross, 41, was condemned for the January 2001 fatal shootings of an 18-year-old woman with whom he had been feuding and an associate dean at the university who was with her at the time.

You murder somebody in Texas, and we’ll murder you right back.
One down, but a WHOLE lot more to go...
Texas has put down another black MURDERER.
The headline is wrong.
A black man wasn’t executed.
A Murderer was executed: He just happened to be black.
Execution is not unjust-—Murder is.
Had Zimmerman died, this would be Trayvon
“double slaying in Lubbock a dozen years ago”
That was a speedy execution...hope it’s a trend
Texas has executed another black man because another black man executed another human being. It's a simple as that.
Saw an interesting stat on FOX news over the weekend.
1) Blacks makeup 13% of the national population.
2) Blacks commit 75% of all murders in the US.
3) 93% of all blacks murdered in the US are murdered by other blacks.
Interesting data. Somebody call Al and jessie.
A murderer is a murderer is a murderer. Race doesn't enter into it.
So....it was an African American was it?
No, it was nothing more than an animal that murdered someone and paid the price.
I guess the title should have read “murdering-American” instead of the word “black” or “African-American” to be correct.
Texas Has Executed Another Murderer Who Happened to be Black.
Funny, nothing was said about Ross' victims: Douglas Birdsall and Viola McVade. Douglas Birdsall was White and Viola McVade was Black.
"Prosecutors say the murders took place because of an ongoing argument between Ross and McVade, who was his girlfriends sister. Birdsall, the Associate Dean of Libraries at Texas Tech University, was killed because he was with McVade, whom he had met that night. Unfortunately for Birdsall, his affinity for street prostitutes put him in the wrong place at the wrong time that night.
"The evidence is legally and factually sufficient to support appellants conviction. The murders occurred in an alley very near appellants apartment. Appellant threatened Viola with violence not long before she was murdered. Shortly before the murders, appellant told Liza to leave appellants apartment because he did not want her there in case anything happened. Liza also saw appellant wearing latex gloves, and a latex glove tip containing appellants DNA and Birdsalls blood was found inside Birdsalls car. Birdsalls blood was also on appellants sweatshirt. Appellant incriminated himself when the police asked him about the murder weapon, and he incriminated himself to his mother."
Where is Reverend Al to tell us the truth?
“Where is Reverend Al to tell us the truth?”
Facts and truth are now immaterial.
What counts is tribal self-identification, and supporting your perceived tribal members no matter how heinous the crime.
I don’t think our founders ever envisioned how balkanized we have become...
Don’t Mess With Texas!
And one of the victims was black.
WHEN are we going to stop with the "african american" nonsense? None of these people were born in africa and I'm sure the ones born within the last 20 years have no damn clue where africa is nor can they find it on a map. No other race uses the "hyphenated" american. When was the last time you heard "a german-american, 5'9" tall wearing a yellow shirt" - "an irish-american murdered his wife", etc etc etc. All other races are referred to as either "a white male" "an hispanic woman" - what happened to "a black male"? I'm sick of this hyphenated crap!
Texas Has Executed Another
Black Man Murderer.
I think God creates life, and God takes it away. I just don’t agree with the death penalty except in very rare circumstances. This is not one of those circumstances. I don’t believe he would have been a threat to the population if left in prison for life. It’s interesting to me that the son of the victim believes he should not have been killed either.
Texas executed a murderer who happened to be black. So what?
You have to be liberal to understand all this hyphenated stuff.
When Gov. McGreevey of NJ was outed as homosexual and resigned amid a homosexual sexual scandal, the Human Rights Campaign told him to say that he was a gay American. As if that made it all better.
So, assuming those numbers are correct, blacks are about twenty times as likely to commit murder as non-blacks. I wonder if that will be included in Obama’s national conversation about race?
There’s still a long way to go to resolve the problems.
Another domestic terrorist got what he sowed.:) Keep On Keeping On.:)
What makes it more egregious is that BLACK MEN make up less than 7% of the overall population yet commit more than half of ALL murders. Hey Jessy? Al you there?
What makes it more egregious is that BLACK MEN make up less than 7% of the overall population yet commit more than half of ALL murders.
You’ve also got to realize that it’s a small portion of that 7% committing those murders. Not every black man is a murderer.
You just happened to be browsing Afro.com and ran across this story?
Did George Zimmerman pull the switch?
Another person who happens to be black committed a capital crime in a state that has the death penalty.
Whoa. Amazing headline.
Black and guilty, right? With due process, right?
How many blacks have been killed in Chicago WITHOUT protection from the state and because of family-destroying policies of the welfare peddlers?
Or more accurately Another Convicted Murderer was Executed in Texas.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
“I dont believe he would have been a threat”
No point in doing it half way and taking a risk.
We’re now positive he wont be a threat.
Texas has executed another murderer.
The act defines the man, not the color of his skin.......
Justified legal capital punishment is not murder!
And the headline is racist. Texas executed another tried and convicted murderer.
If only the justice system were not so corrupt that they would indict, try, and convict the traitors we have in the White House, Congress, the Supreme Court, and in the Pentagon.
Nope. St trayboy would have walked. It would only be fair and just. And boost his street/gangsta/thug cred when he facebooked about puttin’ some whoop ass on some creepy ass cracka’.
Are we a nation of laws, or are we a nation of men?
I don't know the facts of the case, but the perp likely could have cut a deal by pleading guilty to take the death penalty off the table.
If I'm right, he rolled the dice and lost.
This is why we have a long way to go in race relations...this writer thinks the color of the criminal is all that matters..not the crime he committed and was tried for and convicted...just his color....until this writer sees a crime as a crime...race relations will never change for the better...
Had Zimmerman died, Trayvon would be dining with the Obamas.
His race has nothing to do with this—he killed—he made the choice to kill—and now he has paid the price. Other states should follow Texas and exicute those who do henious crimes—black, brown, yellow or White. Texas should exicute more!
Oh no! Won’t we soon run out of black criminals?
We in Texas feel different.
