It is worth pausing over every murder that goes on in this city. But a brutal killing this week deserves special attention.
Not least because it tells us something it appears we don’t want to know. O’Shae Sibley was a talented 28-year-old dancer and choreographer.
He was stabbed to death last Saturday night at a gas station in Brooklyn. Video surveillance footage obtained by The Post shows that Sibley and three of his friends stopped at the local Mobil station to refill.
While they were there Sibley and one of his friends started dancing (“voguing”) to Beyonce.
This drew the attention of another group of men at the station. Words were exchanged and Sibley was stabbed. His friends and some bystanders called 911 and tried to help him.
Had the group who confronted Sibley and his friends been white and shouted that they didn’t like gay people, or black people, this country would be in meltdown right now.
Every Presidential candidate would be condemning it.
