Then both Black and White community leaders better get started defusing this very dangerous situation.

this is the same place that cop shot the black guy in the back. So they might burn the streets to the ground.

I work with someone who was family to that man.

I don't see them burning anything here.

Black people are saying the cops should have shot and killed the guy who turned out to be an innocent photographer.


Some black people are.
Or did white people shoot up the church?

Broad strokes are broad.
Agree it is horrible, just feel we should differentiate.

I know assumptions don't get much love here,
But this shooters appearance fits a particular profile that we've seen before.
Seriously (coming from a thin white guy) - why are so many of the US mass shooting perpetrators skinny white guys??



better shots than others?
more training?
it is not for a lack of effort on others parts though
a clean shaven racist white guy will stick out like a sore thumb around there

Pretty sad all around, nobody deserves to be snuffed out of existence like this


But knowing SJW opportunists...Anyone wanna place bets on a resulting riot somewhere, regardless whether or not the shooter is shot dead or taken alive?

< glances at clock >

I figure within 48 hours at most.

Edit: I mean a riot over whatever someone can come up with regarding this shooting, in any given state.

Really hope this isn't spun into a racial issue...that is unless they actually find KKK paraphernalia in his house or something...


A white male allegedly walked in and killed 8 black church goers..
Additionally: "Emanuel AME is the oldest black church south of Baltimore. Played an important role in abolition & civil rights"

How else can it be spun other than a racially motivated attack?


Without any facts that assumption could be considered racist in itself. You might be right and probably are but we'll have to wait and see. The impulse behind my reply was that I just hate racial tension and really didn't want this to be more fuel on the fire. It's already tense enough as it is. It bothers me that many in this country think you are racist if you are white.

I am hearing the rumor is the Pastor was among the casualties, but not confirmed. I would think we would have heard if true.

I 100% agree with you which probably didnt come across but it's hard to spin it any other way some times.
What's scary is how so many people are going on a witch hunt already..Imagine if that guy the police found was rather found by a mob looking for the suspect.

Thats what I see on a Twitter post:
EVODE ‏@Evode7 3m3 minutes ago

A white terrorist believed to be in his 20s apparently went into a Black Church and started shooting. About 8 people dead. #southcarolina


Annoying how everything is 'terrorist' related now. Can't just be a crazy guy anymore, everything must be terrorism.

I don't have enough give-a-crap about my idiot box to bother turning it on & trying to remember what channels are the cable news, but SERIOUSLY? How is this not breaking on one of them yet??

Its on CNNs website but not the main story and I'm seeing CNN Twitter posts nothing from FOX news at all so far....Someone said MSNBC is reporting on it now.
