Jack England, the youngest shooter, had at various times identified as both white and native american. And looking at him visually, he cartinaly
appears more to be a 'white' looking man than a 'native american' looking man.
I've read people arguing that England 'looks' native american. I can tell you from personal experience, having lived with, known, co-workers and
friends, and having them in my family - this young man looks nothing like a 'full' native american. England looks no more native than my own father,
who is himself half Irish and have Innu. My grandmother on my dad's side is an innuit woman.
I'm white. I have red hair, green eyes, and I burn in the sun. But my father is half Innuit, and it shows, does that make me non-white in the eyes of
the majority of our society? The only folks who would see me as a non-white are supremacist types, and to hell with them anyway. Being mixed race
doesn't make you non-white, if you chose to identify as a white man. England has at various times identified as both white and native.
This is very clearly a racially motivated attack. Yeah, it's a tragedy that the man's father was gunned down by a lowlife criminal.. but the fact that
that particular lowlife was black noes not excuse or explain away his racist shooting rampage.
If the man's convicted, and I certainly hope he is, if this isn't a case worthy of death than I don't know what is. Racially motivated mass murder is
the very worst that humanity has to offer, no matter the racial lines. The human race is JUST ONE RACE. Our ethnicities are literally skin deep.
