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!
