Is that White guy going to be called a terrorist or not? Let’s not be biased, people #CharlestonShooting

Update:

I am not simply talking about race but all kinds of labellings, like Race:

87% of U.S. mass shooting are committed by caucasians 13-56 but are never called ‘Terrorists’.

And Religion: (and other such)

Here’s an example of a lecture by Zakir Naik:

A case in point is the anti-Muslim campaign in the 
American media following the Oklahoma bomb blast, where the press was quick to 
declare a 'Middle Eastern conspiracy' behind the attack. The culprit was later 
identified as a soldier from the American Armed Forces.

    “the unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.”

    If you’re against the politics and you act against them, you’re a terrorist. Everything else is just whackjob nutters

        That’s the definition on terrorism and what I understand from it… Or I might have understood it wrong and terrosism is “acts of violence WITH a political aim”?

        No. Terrorism is anything that invokes terror on innocent people 😦 In my opinion. Although most of them take place with political aims.

        I mean, media may describe it as “the unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.” but I don’t agree with media since media itself can be biased and occasionally does not reveal information the general public can benefit from.

    It happened in Michigan where a guy crashed his truck into a military base and the police called it “domestic terrorism.” People were ready to attack the nearest Mosque and kill any Muslims because they thought “terrorist = Muslim.” SURPRISE- the terrorist was a white male and the media remained silent about it ever since. SMH, anyone can be a terrorist but the media is apparently ignorant to this fact.

      Why am I not surprised? :I Are we going to get any new news?

      Thanks for sharing the news, Honey. People need to be more aware of Islamophobia, Race-descrimination or any other kind of descrimination for that matter 😦

    it’s amazing. you blow up a Federal building like Timothy McVeigh did and you’re a terrorist. do something like this in a church or a school and you’re a whack job. My solution: Federalize all schools and churches so they’re all terrorists when they do these acts of violence.
