“…When I heard about last Wednesday’s spree, I thought of the 2010’s Hartford Distributors shooting, wherein Omar Thornton, a black former employee of a beer distribution company, shot eight white former coworkers to death before killing himself. Thornton’s white girlfriend would claim that he’d been taunted with racial epithets while at work, although even the nonwhite employees at the company denied that any such events ever occurred.
As with last week’s Charleston shooting, racial animus appeared to be a motivating factor for Thornton. The main difference is that you’ve likely never heard of Omar Thornton, while you are already painfully aware of Dylann Roof.
That is no coincidence. I’d even suggest it’s by design.
I suspect the double standard exists to simultaneously whip up black rage and white resentment. As it is currently configured, our media/government complex focuses almost exclusively on anti-black horror stories—whether real or imagined—while it outright ignores or buries stories about black-on-white violence.”
He’s right, we are all being played.
