Two church shooters with two different media results. The white boy is Dylann Roof, born and reared in the south. He shot and killed nine when he entered a predominately black church and began shooting.
The black man is Emanuel Kidega Samson, an immigrant from Sudan. He shot and killed one white lady in the church parking lot and then entered the predominately white church to kill more. However, his murderous intentions were stopped when one church goer, an usher, had a weapon and was able to stop Samson from any further killings.
How has the reaction been to these two incidents? Quite different is an understatement! With the shootings committed by Roof it was touted as racist and a result of the Civil War. Therefore, anything that smacked of the South’s past history had to be removed. First it was the Confederate Flag, then Confederate soldier’s graves and now statues of Confederate leaders such as Robert E. Lee.
How has the reaction been to immigrant Samson’s church shootings? Not much! There has been no mention of racism, no mention of immigrates or immigration laws, or a rethink on the 2nd amendment!
Roof’s murderous rampage was in the news for weeks and still is while the recent shooting by a black man from Sudan barely makes the news. In a few days the Sudan immigrant’s muderous intentions will be forgotten while the boy from the south will be fresh in the memory of progressives. What is the difference? Is it skin color and the place of one’s birth? Surely not!
Whatever it is, the BIG NEWS that continues to be plastered in all forms of media is a bunch of overpaid football players not standing for the National Anthem and in a close second the North Korea situation! Oh, before leaving the North Korea issue one would almost get the idea that many in the media would rather have the murdering Kim Jong-un as their President than Donald Trump!
Does this say something about the media and sadly does it also say something about society?
