A white nationalist enters a Walmart in El Paso, Texas and murders 23 people, injuring 23 others. It’s believed to be the deadliest attack on Latinos in modern U.S. history.

The 21-year-old shooter was inspired by a manifesto written by an extremist synagogue shooter in New Zealand. He even wrote his own manifesto, denouncing a “Hispanic invasion” and “environmental degradation.”

In the manifesto, he wrote that he wanted to kill as many Hispanics as he could.
