File this one under the "What the F@CK were they Thinking?" category. I mean, the loss of human life is tragic, but forgive me for being a little cynical if STUPIDITY was to blame. The victims ranged in ages from 20 - 60 and the eldest victim was a 61 year old grandfather whose body was torn apart while he was trying to get a glimpse of the race.
This is just too damn sad. People have complained about the police not responding to calls from neighbors about all of the noise and commotion (the races started at 12:30am and the accident occurred at 3:30am). Again, instead of black people holding themselves accountable for their actions, we have community groups and the victims' family members blaming everyone else EXCEPT themselves.
To the families and survivors: I will not apologize nor offer my condolences for your pain because your family members were STUPID! Be grateful that you're still living and hopefully you'll take this opportunity to act like you have some damn sense next time.
