On Sunday’s edition of NBC Nightly News, anchor Kate Snow and reporter Maura Barrett marked the one-year anniversary of the attack on a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin when Darrell Brooks plowed through the marchers killing six and injuring many more. While the resilience of the community was inspiring, NBC refused to mention the racist motives behind the attack.

“In Waukesha, Wisconsin, the town just finished marching in its annual Christmas parade,” Snow announced at the top of the segment. “Of course, it was one year ago that a man drove a car into that crowd killing six. Tonight, residents returned celebrating the lives lost and the town`s determination to keep the tradition going.”

“Waukesha`s Christmas parade is back, bigger and stronger than ever. The community turning up in force one year after tragedy struck, when a man drove an SUV through parade killing six people and injuring dozens more,” Barrett added.
