We are waiting on news of the shooter’s race to determine the cause behind this [school shooting]. If he’s brown, this will be an act of terrorism; if he’s white, he’s mentally ill or has been playing too many video games; if he’s black, it’ll be that violent rap music. I can just tell the media are all distressed because they don’t know what narrative to follow yet.
At least one bit of certainty that they’ll be able to rely on is that for sure it has nothing to do with guns.
